GLAAD appoints first transgender co-chair

GLAAD today announced Professor Jennifer Finney Boylan and Steve Warren as Co-Chairs of its national Board of Directors. Boylan, who is a professor of English at Colby College and a mother of two, will serve alongside Steve Warren, a prominent entertainment lawyer who was recently honored with the Stephen F. Kolzak Award at the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards.

Boylan said, 

"GLAAD's commitment to the trans community is real and unwavering. 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."
