Thomas B. Stoddard was executive director of Lambda Legal from 1986 to 1992. During his tenure, our staff grew from 6 to 22 people. He also served as grand marshal for New York Pride in 1996, the summer before he passed away. This quote is from that day, and was printed in his The New York Times obituary. We’re proud to honor his memory with this journal. We hope you fill it with more thoughts and plans for the future.
