Politini Wants YOU! Calling All Fabulous Interns!

Dynamic married lesbian power couple Danielle and Aisha Moodie-Mills are looking for three self-motivated interns to join their growing empire.  In 2010 theirs was the first lesbian wedding to be profiled by Essence magazine. The feature received an overwhelmingly supportive response from readers of all persuasions which prompted the pair to create an online space where they could further share what living OUT loud meant to them in hopes that their thoughts would inspire others.

Through their blog threeLOL, Danielle and Aisha have gained national notoriety as political analysts and cultural commentators. They have since broadened their platform and are also hosts of the popular politics and pop culture show, Politini, which airs live every Thursday at 8pm on Blis.Fm, and have also partnered with MSNBC’s African American affiliate theGrio.com for a web video series. They are on their Polinista grind bringing digestible information to the masses—and that’s why they need you!  They can’t be everywhere (although they try).

The pair are looking to fill the following THREE positions as soon as possible. Application DEADLINE is COB August 18th
