Meet one of the artists, disruptors, educators, groundbreakers, innovators, and storytellers who all helped make the world a better place for LGBTQ+ people.

If you’ve ever seen a positive portrayal of LGBTQ+ people in an advertisement, chances are Brent Miller had something to do with it.

An advocate for the accurate and authentic portrayal of the LGBTQ+ community in media and advertising, Miller is currently the senior director for global LGBTQ+ equality at Procter & Gamble. Recently, he also partnered with GLAAD to establish the Visibility Project to bring together the world’s top brands and ad agencies to advance LGBTQ+ inclusion in advertising.

“I tell the stories of who we are as a community, linked to ways companies build business and growth,” says Miller. “By creating an inherent connection between the two, we build a valuable relationship that connects the advancement of LGBTQ+ equality with business that we can sustain over time.”

Over the last 24 years in the industry, Miller has worked to create award-winning LGBTQ-inclusive campaigns for brands like Head & Shoulders and Pantene. But his work has also gone beyond the advertising world.

In 2020 Miller created a benefit show called Can’t Cancel Pride to help raise money for the LGBTQ+ community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Four years later, the virtual benefit is still going strong. It has raised more than $14 million to support LGBTQ+ organizations and involved celebrities like JoJo Siwa, Big Freedia, Adam Lambert, Ciara, and Brandi Carlile. Miller also produced a series of films with CNN’s Great Big Story and was the executive producer of the GLAAD Award-winning short documentary Coded: The Hidden Love of J.C. Leyendecker.

“We’re a community that knows how to persevere, and we have an obligation to deeply understand the uniqueness, complexities, and incredible diversity within ourselves,” says Miller. “When we do that, we all benefit, because we’re creating stronger relationships, communities, and companies that move us forward.” @brent.r.miller
