National Board of Directors, Human Rights Campaign

"I became interested in LGBT issues when my son, Rob, told me he was gay. I was eager for Rob to have the same rights and privileges that my other two sons enjoy. In 1985 I helped to co-found the Cleveland chapter of PFLAG with Dr. Jes Sellers. About 10 years later I became very active in the Human Rights Campaign and now serve on the National Board of Directors of HRC. For the past 19 years, I have worked in the University Counseling Service."

Jes SellersJes Sellers, PhD
Psychologist and Director, University Counseling Services
Co-Founder, PFLAG Cleveland

"Case Western Reserve University has made significant strides in transforming our university into a more inclusive place for academic and social engagement. As a psychologist in our university counseling center, I can attest to the difference this more open and welcoming community has had in the lives of our LGBT students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Now more than ever, Case has become a place for people to set aside the social prejudices of the past to work and learn together in an atmosphere of mutual respect. This has happened because of the thoughtful efforts of alumni, faculty, and staff over the years and I am happy to contribute to the continuing investment being made for the future of this great American university."

Lynn T. SingerLynn T. Singer
Deputy Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Office of the Provost View Biography

"I initiated the LGBT Task Force [the precursor to the LGBTA Committee] at Case in 2004 because one of our community leaders, Natalie Epstein, called to tell me about harassment of a lesbian student on campus. Although we had an active Spectrum organization among undergraduates, we realized that a visible coalition of faculty, staff and students could make a great difference in developing a more inclusive climate for LGBT faculty, staff and students at CWRU. I continue to serve on the committee because I believe that we all are enriched by diversity and that our committee is one of many ways that we celebrate diversity and promote tolerance on campus."
