Meet Peter Perkowski, the Bi Attorney Who’s

Helping Meet Trump’s Ambush of Transgender

Service Members with Civil Rights-Lawsuit

Counterstrikes

By Vic Gerami

If being white, male, cisgender, and of the

professional class are temptations for people

like civil rights attorney Peter Perkowski (he/

him) to luxuriate in the comforts of acceptance

and privilege in 21st century America, count the

native of rural, western New York untempted.

“I didn’t come out until going to college,”

Perkowski, who is bisexual, says. “I saw inequality

and injustice everywhere, and it was my goal to

change that.”

The politics of geography is a theme that helped

shape Perkowski’s early view of both how

LGBTQ+ are impacted by bigotry, intolerance and

hate – as well as how he might be most effective

in making change.

high-profile LGBTQ+ leaders to campus,”

Perkowski recalls. “Urvashi Vaid, then the leader

of the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force; Joe

Steffan, a midshipman at the US Naval Academy

who was expelled six weeks before graduation

for refusing to lie about being gay—each of these

speakers awed and inspired me.”

By 1992 Perkowski was a volunteer working to

help end 12 years of Republican governance from

the White House. He even met then Gov. Bill

Clinton, that election year’s Democratic nominee,

when he came to visit Rochester. Clinton’s

election broke the 12-year pall that hung over

LGBTQ+ progress, sidelining queer rights and

HIV/AIDS research and services work at the

federal level. It seemed a new day had dawned in

Washington.

“I went to law school in D.C. because it was the

seat of the federal government, and I wanted to be

where laws could be changed,” he says.

“But things got worse. In 1996, I sat in the gallery

of the US House of Representatives as the Defense

of Marriage Act [DOMA] was debated. Almost

all of the comments [from the House Floor] were

demeaning and offensive. They were personal

attacks against me and all LGBTQ+ people.”

Though in his mind late to come out, Perkowski

soon transformed into a student activist. He

eventually took the top leadership post at his

college’s LGBTQ student group. Organizing

seminal speaker events ignited a fire in his

belly that even today fuels his work fighting

injustice based on against gender identity, sexual

orientation, HIV status, and other marginalized

communities.

Perkowski was at once devastated but also

resolved by the legislative hate-fest into which the

DOMA debate devolved.

Nowadays, Perkowski looks for and relentlessly

engages the toughest legal battles where basic

equality and justice must be won in his fight for

America’s most vulnerable LGBTQ+ people, lest

the essentialist promises of the US Constitution,

already struggling to survive in the Trump Era, be

relinquished entirely.

“Our 20 LGBTQ+ IF YOU group LIKE at US, college PLEASE brought LIKE US many ON FACEBOOK: DESERTDAILYGUIDE

Currently, he is Legal & Policy Director of the


Modern Military Association of America

(MMAA), the nation’s largest non-profit

organization for the LGBTQ+ and HIV+

military and veteran community, a post he’s held

for almost four years.

“I come from a military family,” says Perkowski.

“In a sense, the job allows me to serve the

military community in a way I wasn’t allowed

to before, and to fight for equal treatment at the

same time.”

Perkowski sees Trump’s actions barring some

Americans from serving our nation in the

military as a clear betrayal of brave service

members who happen to be transgender.

“People do not realize that the fight for

equal service did not end with the repeal of

‘Don’t Ask-Don’t Tell,’” he says. “The military

community that we at MMMA serve is still in

crisis.”

Along with partners, Lambda Legal and the

law firm Winston & Strawn LLP, the Modern

Military Association of America, he is facing

off against the Trump Administration in four

federal court actions: one challenging the

constitutionality of Trump’s ban on military

service by transgender people, and three seeking

to change policies that negatively impact service

members living with HIV. “The [MMAA] job

gave me the privilege of being able to file four

lawsuits on behalf of transgender and HIV+

patriots who want nothing more than do their

jobs and protect the country.”

Perkowski feels a personal connection to his

work.

“In 1998, I was diagnosed with HIV,” he says. “I

had just graduated from law school, was about

to move from D.C. back to Los Angeles, and was

taking the California bar three weeks later.”

An unexpected outcome of Perkowski’s

diagnosis was a clearer sense of purpose he

gained. But first his fears had to be resolved.

Fortunately, that happened sooner than it likely

would have in the earlier years of the HIV

pandemic.

“The person delivering the news told me exactly

what my brain needed to hear: ‘You’re not going

to die from this.’ As time went on, I came to

realize that my diagnosis was a gift. In addition

to fighting for the rights of LGBTQ+ people, I

fight for equal treatment for people living with

HIV.”

Spotting, Standing Up to Bullies

As Chair of APLA Health’s Board of Directors,

he’s helped lead the organization during its

transition from an AIDS service organization

(formerly, AIDS Project Los Angeles) to a

health care clinic serving LGBTQ+ and other

marginalized communities while maintaining a

focus on HIV care. During his tenure at APLA

Health, the organization has nearly tripled its

budget to $60 million, becoming one of the

largest health centers in the Los Angeles area.

Experience has taught Perkowski that the

work of a civil rights attorney in the LGBTQ+

and HIV spaces won’t end anytime soon.

Discrimination has a way of persisting and

rearing its ugly head just when you think the

fight is almost won. A professional history

of pro-bono and the trend for bigotry and

discrimination to get dressed up in so-called

religious freedom are among the reasons

Perkowski says he’s committed to the fight for

equality and justice for the long haul. 21
