(St. Petersburg, FL, January 3, 2007) — National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) Senior Counsel Karen Doering has been named by Curve Magazine as one of the South's "Most Powerful Lesbians." Doering is one of ten individuals selected for her contribution to the South's LGBT community. Doering, a seasoned civil rights attorney, received the honor in Curve Magazine's January/February 2007 issue.

"We are thrilled for Karen at this deserved recognition," said NCLR Executive Director Kate Kendell. "Karen's work as an attorney for NCLR has altered the legal landscape for LGBT people in the South, where the need for advocacy is particularly compelling. As we move into the twenty-first century, Karen's life passion and NCLR's commitment is to assure that we end the discrimination against and marginalization of the LGBT community and other oppressed groups in this region."

Doering has received several awards for her contribution to civil rights law. In 2006, she was honored with the Valuing Our Families Florida State Award and the Florida Bar Public Interest Law Section Alan Terl Award for Excellence in Advocacy on Behalf of Individual Rights and Responsibilities. She received the Association for Women in Psychology Florida Women Who Inspire Award, as well as the Florida Bar Family Law Section Chair's Award for Outstanding Service in 2005.

Based in St. Petersburg, Florida, Doering runs NCLR's Southern regional office, which serves clients throughout the Southeast. NCLR is a national legal organization committed to advancing the civil and human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and their families through litigation, public policy advocacy, and public education. In addition to working to eliminate Florida's discriminatory law banning gay and lesbian people from adopting children, as well as other family law cases, Doering is lead attorney for NCLR's sports project, which aims to level the playing field for LGBT players and coaches by working to eliminate homophobia and gender identity discrimination in sports.
