We are the Gay & Lesbian Advocates and Defenders. You may know us through our fights for full LGBT equality through the DOMA, Goodrich v DPH (MA Marriage Equality) or Bragdon v Abbott cases. Though we started our HIV/AIDS Law Project in 1984, this is our first foray into the tumblr world. Check us out for updates regarding HIV/AIDS news and POZitive Living. Feel free to submit your own photos of your POZitive life. If you have legal questions or inquiries please see our HIV/AIDS Law Project or call our Legal InfoLine at 1-800-455-GLAD (4523) Monday-Friday 1:30-4:30pm Hablemos Espanol.

Our Mission

Founded in 1978, Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) is New England’s leading legal rights organization dedicated to ending discrimination based on sexual orientation, HIV status and gender identity and expression.

GLAD’s Commitment

Civil rights have never been easy to win. Fighting for them takes passion, skill and an absolute determination to prevail. That’s what GLAD delivers every single day.

GLAD’s bold and effective advocacy has achieved scores of precedent-setting legal victories to end discrimination based on sexual orientation, HIV status and gender identity and expression, benefiting individuals, couples and families across New England and throughout the United States.

Each time GLAD argues a case or tackles an issue, we tear down more of the outdated laws and stereotypes that have denied LGBT people and people with HIV basic protections and opportunities in every area of daily life – family, school, employment, housing, government, health care, and beyond.

Whether it’s marriage for same-sex couples, non-discrimination policies for transgender people in the workplace, or protections for people with HIV, GLAD doesn’t shrink from tough issues. And we don’t compromise on our belief that every citizen deserves full equality under the law – without exception.
HIV cases decline for black women, increase for gay men: CDC


“Fewer black women in the United States are being infected with HIV, but the number of young gay and bisexual men infected is rising, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Wednesday.”
