President Carter’s Assistant Margaret “Midge” Costanza coordinated the meeting with representatives from the then National Gay Task Force (NGTF) to hear their grievances about discriminatory federal policies. “As we approach the National LGBTQ Task Force’s 50th anniversary in 2023, it is so gratifying to see how from our very beginnings we have been making history, working in collaboration with activists across our diverse communities and creating change at the highest levels as well as the grass roots,” said Kierra Johnson, Executive Director of National LGBGTQ Task Force. “For those of us in the Task Force family today, we know we stand on the shoulders of our founders and all of the extraordinary people who brought the organization to life in 1973.

We will continue the struggle for liberation and equity in their honor and in the service of the LGBTQ community,” concluded Johnson.
