Paula Ettelbrick


Gay Activist is sad to note the passing of Paula Ettelbrick, from cancer at the young age of 56. In a successful legal career Ettelbrick worked at Lambda Legal from 1986 until 1993; at the National Center for Lesbian Rights in 1993 and 1994; at the Empire State Pride Agenda from 1994 until 1999; at the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force from 1999 until 2001; as executive director of the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission from 2003 until 2009; and since then, as the first woman to lead the Stonewall Community Foundation, a philanthropic grant-making agency that supports LGBT organizations in New York and nationwide.
