Journalist and human rights advocate, Lynare Robbins strives to help members of the LGBT community not just locally, but internationally. She joined the Navy upon graduating high school, which led to her view of human rights on a global scale.
Robbins sometimes tackles these issues as a freelancerat SFGN. Whether the discussion is on local preservation of the Everglades, or the safety of the LGBT community at large, she addresses the most imminent threats.
She currently works as deputy director with Global Ties Miami, an organization working with the U.S. Department of State to foster professional exchanges with other nations. This represents an overarching goal of Robbins’ — breaking down barriers. Her work with the local non-profit 4Ward Miami, also demonstrates this same drive. She programs its “Americas LGBTQ Human Rights Symposium,” which celebrated its inauguration in 2019 and is set to return in 2020.
This year, the symposium brought speakers from nations across Central/South America, including an independent activist from Cuba. In 2020 the symposium will return, and focus on the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights. For these many reasons Robbins is chosen as a true OUT champion of South Florida.
