Meet Jason Aaron Dilts

i-jwwmvkt-lJason Aaron Dilts is a writer and small business owner who lives in Los Angeles, California. Known for his political work and community organizing, he was “Homo on the Range” in Kansas before moving to Los Angeles in 2013. Now he’s on an epic adventure of self-discovery as a student of Kundalini Yoga, and more recently,  executive director of the spiritual community center Full Circle Venice.

Jason, 38, has a diverse professional background in politics, creative writing, and non-profit development. He was the executive director of the Sedgwick County Democratic Party from 2002-2008, a job he began at the age of 19. He is widely credited for bringing together a diverse coalition of supporters, and hailed for building a strong progressive organization that sustained itself in a conservative, red state. After leaving partisan politics, Jason was involved in Wichita’s creative arts community and in related efforts to make the city a more attractive place to live. He was a member of the Tallgrass Film Festival programming committee and active in related stubbornly independent film events. Since moving to Los Angeles, he has worked as the senior manager of fundraising events for the social-justice foundation Liberty Hill and oversaw strategic development, communications, and public relations at Full Circle Venice. He is also a freelance writer.

Jason’s words first appeared in Naked City Magazine, where his celebrated “Homo on the Range” column ran from 2009-2012 and later in the midwest LGBT newspaper, The Gayly.  Jason also penned frequent art, music, and entertainment pieces for The Wichita Eagle.
