Jason Gibson, past president of the National LGBT Bar Association, is modest. “Not sure I'm worthy of OUT50, but thanks for thinking of me,” he said during an interview with him. But I politely disagree. During his presidency from 2012-2013, Gibson met with Attorney General Eric Holder and conversed about transgender issues in the military. In addition to this, Gibson advocated for marriage equality.
Gibson is also an Associate General Counsel with Equity One, Inc., a leading shopping center developer and owner located in North Miami Beach. For about 11 years, Gibson was a Senior Counsel in the Real Estate Section of Holland & Knight LLP in Fort Lauderdale before joining Equity One, Inc. Other impressive accolades include a Bachelor of Arts from Harvard College and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Miami School of Law.
The LGBT Bar Association was officially founded in 1989 and in 1992, became a formal affiliate of the American Bar Association. To join the LGBT Bar Association, please visit www.lgbtbar.org.
