Minter, who has worked with NCLR for 10 years, has previously been honored by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, the Ford Foundation, and the City University of New York School of Law, among others. He received his law degree from Cornell in 1993.

Stewart has been named one of the top 100 lawyers by the Daily Journal legal-news chain. She argued also in Lockyer v. City and County of San Francisco, one of the cases that led to the California supreme court's decision to strike down a ban on same-sex marriage. She is a graduate of Boalt Hall School of Law at University of California, Berkeley.

They will be honored at the Lavender Law Conference in San Francisco on September 4. (The Advocate)
