About the Author

Adrian Shanker is editor of the critically acclaimed anthology Bodies and Barriers: Queer Activists on Health (PM Press) and the executive director of Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center in Allentown, PA. A specialist in LGBT health policy, he has developed leading-edge health promotion campaigns to advance health equity through behavioral, clinical, and policy changes. Adrian serves as Commissioner and health committee co-chair on the Pennsylvania Commission on LGBTQ Affairs.

Rea Carey served as the National LGBTQ Task Force's executive director from 2008-2021 and has advanced a vision of freedom for LGBTQ people and their families that is broad, inclusive and progressive. She grounds her work solidly in racial, economic, gender and social justice. This approach to leadership has delivered results as diverse as: winning an LGBT-inclusive federal hate crimes prevention law; defeating multiple state anti-LGBT ballot measures; spotlighting discrimination against transgender people; winning marriage equality; positioning reproductive rights, health and justice solidly as an LGBTQ issue; building stronger support for immigration reform in the LGBTQ movement; and, successfully securing scores of changes in federal agencies to attend to the needs of the LGBTQ community. Carey is a Hunt Alternatives' Prime Movers Fellow and serves on the boards of directors for the Flamboyan Foundation and the Freeman Foundation.
