Changing Hearts and Minds

GLAD 30 Years

With our website, GLAD Answers, publications and workshops, we work to ensure that individuals know their legal rights, and how to assert them.

Using both traditional and new media we tell the stories of LGBT people and how the law affects them for good or for ill.

All of these efforts support GLAD's core litigation by creating the environment in which we can win – and sustain our wins.

Share Your Story

We have come far in our fight for equal justice under law. But we still must work to educate our communities about the reality of LGBT people's lives. Research shows that the more people know their LGBT family, friends, and neighbors, the more likely they are to support our rights and help us work toward full equality. Learn More


We host a variety of legal workshops and public education events throughout the year. In addition, GLAD attorneys and other staff members speak at conferences and community events. Find Out About Upcoming Events
