Ross Murray is the Director of Religion, Faith & Values for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). His mission is to amplify the voices of LGBT-affirming communities of faith and LGBT people of faith.

Murray is also founder and director of The Naming Project, a faith-based camp for LGBT youth and their allies.
