The National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) will celebrate its 46th anniversary in November. NCLR established a path when there was no such path in 1977. With a commitment to racial and economic justice and our community’s most vulnerable, NCLR is a leader at the forefront of advancing civil and human rights for LGBTQ individuals and their families through impact litigation, public policy, and public education. The organization is funded by feminists. Rupert-Gordon, a social worker, stepped into the role of heading NCLR at a historic moment — the pandemic and a racial reckoning — in the world two years ago. She is now one of three Black queer women heading the LGBTQ+ community’s top organizations. No recognition of National Women’s Month would be complete without a discussion of The National Center for Lesbian Rights.
