The leader of our nation has come out in support of LGBT equal rights—but millions of LGBT people around the globe have no such government advocate. Fortunately, they do have Julie Dorf. A leader in the movement toward international LGBT equality for the past 25 years, Dorf’s work ranges from lecturing on reparations for homosexual victims of Nazi persecution to acting as a philanthropic consultant for the world’s major social justice foundations. Based in San Francisco, she currently serves as the Senior Advisor to the Council for Global Equality, an organization she helped create and which advocates for LGBT-inclusive American foreign policy. Dorf also founded and directed the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC) from 1990 to 2000, which advances the human rights of all people subjected to discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity or HIV status. Abuse of LGBT individuals around the world is intractable—but Dorf is buoyed the fact that she “get[s] to work with and be inspired by so many amazing activists and thinkers from all over the world. I wake up every day feeling so fortunate. It is truly a privilege and a source of huge satisfaction to help make change for LGBT communities.” Find out who else made the list.
