GLAAD Appoints First Transgender Cochair

Jennifer Finney Boylan

GLAAD has chosen trans activist Jennifer Finley Boylan as co-chair of its National Board of Directors. This is the first time the prominent LGBT organization has appointed a transgender person to helm its National Board of Directors.

“GLAAD’s commitment to the trans community is real and unwavering,” Boylan said in a statement. “As transgender people continue to advocate for basic legal protections and recognition, the work that the staff of GLAAD is leading to proactively share stories of transgender people through the media is a game changer.”

“Jenny’s proven leadership will be instrumental as GLAAD continues to grow mainstream media attention and public understanding around transgender issues,” said Dave Montez, GLAAD’s acting president, said in a statement.
