REA CAREY, executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, is one of the most prominent leaders in the U.S. lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights movement. Carey, who came to the Task Force in 2004 as deputy executive director, has served as executive director since 2008. Through her leadership, she has advanced a vision of fairness and justice for LGBT people and their families that is broad, inclusive and unabashedly progressive. During Carey's tenure, the Task Force was a key player in passage of the LGBT-inclusive federal hate crimes prevention law; the defeat of multiple anti-LGBT ballot measures across the country; the creation and implementation of the New Beginning Initiative coalition; and the release of the largest-ever study on transgender discrimination in the U.S. Under her guidance, the Task Force has also launched an Online Academy and expanded its faith work and played a vital role in getting the U.S. Census Bureau to report married same-sex couples in the 2010 census. Carey serves on the advisory board of the LGBTQ Policy Journal of Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. Follow her on Twitter @rea_carey.
