involved in numerous cases and legislative initiatives that responded to employment discrimination against members of the
LGBT community and people with HIV/AIDS.
The Lesbian and Gay Lawyers Association (LGLA), formerly known as Lawyers for Human Rights (LHR), was founded in 1979 by Susan
McGreivy, whose work at the The Gay and Lesbian Community Services Center inspired her idea for a gay lawyers group that could
advocate for the rights of community members, and Ray Hatler, who did most of the initial organizing and served as the organisation's
first president. Their first meeting took place in the Old Spaghetti Factory on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
