GLAD Honors State Comptroller Kevin Lembo for LGBTQ Advocacy

GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) honored Connecticut State Comptroller Kevin Lembo for his decades of advocacy on behalf of LGBTQ people, children, and families at the “Justice for All” event, held at the Studio at Billings Forge in Hartford.

After advocating public health during the HIV/AIDS pandemic, Comptroller Lembo was appointed as the state’s first Health Care Advocate in 2004, helping thousands of Connecticut residents receive healthcare access.

Currently serving his second term as state comptroller, GLAD reports that he is the first openly gay statewide official in Connecticut, and has continued to be a strong advocate for fairness and equality for all in the state.
