National LGBTQ Task Force’s Rea Carey on Living Through History

The National LGBTQ Task Force’s Creating Change conference — a multi-day event that brings together some of the world’s preeminent queer activists, artists, writers, and thinkers — is obviously a bit different this year. Not only is the 33rd Creating Change, running January 28-31, completely virtual this year because of COVID-19, it takes place a week after Donald Trump’s catastrophic presidency ended, less than a month after Trump’s white nationalist mob stormed the U.S. Capitol, and serves as the last event with the Task Force’s Rea Carey at the helm.
After leading the venerable organization for decades (the Task Force is the country’s oldest national LGBTQ advocacy group), Carey is exiting her position after Creating Change. Kierra Johnson — a bisexual woman of color and the organization’s current deputy executive director — will take over the executive director role and lead the Task Force into its next 50 years.
Carey recently spoke to Neal Broverman, The Advocate’s digital editor in chief, about her proudest accomplishments and what the Task Force will take on next. Check out their conversation below and click here to find out more about Creating Change.
