The women of GLAAD

GLAAD's CEO and President Sarah Kate Ellis and Director of Spanish-Language Media Monica Trasandes were profiled by Edge recently.

Ellis is one of several women in highly visible and influential positions within GLAAD, and one of many women making crucial contributions to the struggle for LGBT equality. Last year, Jennifer Finney Boylan became the new co-chair of the organization’s National Board of Directors.

Boylan is the first openly transgender person to serve in the position. Another key figure at GLAAD is Monica Trasandes, Director of Spanish Language Media, whose department works to share stories from the LGBT community in Latino and Spanish-language media, helping to increase support and understanding among the fastest-growing population in the United States.
