Joan M. Garry will step down from the top post at the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation in June, the organization announced Friday.
"I look back at the past eight years as the most professionally and personally rewarding of my life," Garry said in a statement. "And now feels like the right time to pass the baton. This job requires significant travel, and right now I'd like to travel less, be at home more, and spend a bit more time with my kids and my partner."
GLAAD's board has hired a search firm to help find a replacement for Garry.
