Meet Jason Aaron Dilts

i-jwwmvkt-lJason Aaron Dilts is a writer and activist 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 Hollywood in 2013. Now he’s on an epic adventure of self-discovery as a student of Kundalini Yoga and co-creator at the spiritual community center Full Circle Venice.

Jason, 32, 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. He currently works as an events manager for the social-justice driven foundation Liberty Hill and as director of communications and development for 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. The column shuttered when he left “the range”, but plans are underway to revive its spirit in the form of a novel. Jason also pens frequent art, music, and entertainment pieces for The Wichita Eagle. His articles about feminism, body image, and gay men with eating disorders have been featured in The Gay & Lesbian World Review, L Style G Style, BeyondMasculinity.com, The New Gay, and in other publications.

On or off the range, Jason shares his unique perspective as a single gay man in his 30’s on an inward journey, navigating an ever-changing social landscape. He looks forward to thriving creatively in Los Angeles and manifesting a multihued life while developing the next phase of “Homo on the Range.” His favorite activities include organizing fun events, wandering the streets of Hollywood, hiking through canyons, meditating, and eating vegan food. He’s into edgy art, indie cinema, alt rock, ethnic cuisine, and high vibe community.
