Chief Executive Officer

Michael Adams is the Chief Executive Officer of Services and Advocacy for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Elders (SAGE). SAGE is the oldest and largest organization in the country dedicated to transforming the LGBT aging experience. In partnership with SAGE affiliates countrywide, SAGE serves countless LGBT older people nationally via technical assistance, trainings and services as well as advocacy at every level of government. In 2009, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services selected SAGE to establish and run the country's first and only National Resource Center on LGBT Aging.

Prior to joining SAGE, Michael was the Director of Education and Public Affairs for Lambda Legal. Prior to that, Michael spent a decade leading cutting-edge litigation that established new rights for LGBT people, first as Associate Director of the ACLU's Lesbian and Gay Rights Project, and then as Deputy Legal Director at Lambda Legal.

A graduate of Stanford Law School and Harvard College, Michael has authored numerous publications on an array of LGBT issues. He has taught law school courses on sexual orientation and gender identity and has served on advisory councils for AARP, the American Society on Aging, and the New York City Department for the Aging among others. Michael has discussed and debated LGBT issues on hundreds of media programs, including Larry King Live, The O'Reilly Factor, Hannity & Colmes, and NPR's Morning Edition and All Things Considered. He has twice been named one of the "100 most influential gay men and lesbians" by Out Magazine.
