Frank Kameny Award

The Frank Kameny Award is presented to a member of the LGBTQ+ community who has paved the way for important legal victories without a United States Juris Doctorate. The award was created to honor the memory of Frank Kameny, a tireless advocate for the LGBTQ+ community and the only recipient of the LGBT Bar’s Dan Bradley Award who did not have a law degree.

We are delighted to announce that Judy Shepard is 2019’s Frank Kameny Awardee. Congratulations, Judy!
