America’s Incoming LGBTQ Rights Envoy Says Activists Are “Most Important Tool” For Change

Incoming U.S. Special Envoy to Advance the Human Rights of LGBTQI+ Persons, Jessica Stern, concluded her work as the Executive Director of OutRight Action International this week. She’s led the organization since September 2011. In a recent editorial she wrote, “There are two fundamentals to achieving LGBT+ liberation: diverse strategies and strong LGBT+ organizations. If there was an easy, one-size-fits-all solution, homophobia and transphobia would be a historical note. They aren’t, which is why we must have diverse tools in our toolbox for the right time and place.”
