He became Vice President of the WSU Gay/Lesbian Union in 1992 and then went on to be President and again Vice President of the organization from 1992-1994. As President, he initiated a proposal for the formation of a Gay and Lesbian Programs Office staffed with a paid full-time employee. Under his persistence the position was created a year and a half later. Agelink was also actively involved in a number of local gay and political organizations including: Affirmations, The Triangle Foundation, the gay softball league MDSL, and an AIDS activist organization ACT-UP!
