100 Women We Love

Colby Berger
In 2003, the Boston-based children’s services organization, The Home for Little Wanderers, opened the nation’s first co-ed group home for LGBT youth. Berger, then the site coordinator, now works as its director of LGBTQ services. “This field combines two of my passions,” says Berger, “teaching and creating safe spaces for queer youth.” A former high school English teacher, Berger has received numerous accolades for her commitment to LGBT issues including the Massachusetts Democratic Future’s LGBT Activist of the Year Award and the L.A.-based Gay and Lesbian Adolescent Social Services GLASS Champion award. –S Sterling
