John Cullen Recognized for LGBT Equality Advocacy
John P. Cullen, PhD, has been recognized for his commitment to LGBT rights in the Rochester community. Dr. Cullen, a medical researcher in the Department of Surgery and coordinator of outreach for the University of Rochester Susan B. Anthony Center, chairs the Pride Alliance at the University of Rochester. He also takes an active role in Safe Space training on campus, and has effectively negotiated policy change by bringing together various constituencies and by providing a voice for those who often are not empowered to speak on their own behalf due to stigma, shame or fear of reprisal. He was recently named one of 25 community champions for LGBT Equality in Western New York by the Empire State Pride Agenda and honored for his commitment to LGBT rights at a ceremony on May 16. Dr. Cullen, a tireless advocate, also received the 2014 University of Rochester Presidential Diversity Award.
