About Neil Giuliano the Leader, the Activist, the Mayor and the Author

Neil Giuliano made his mark in politics as Mayor of Tempe, AZ, where he served his community as leader for a decade, retiring from that position in 2004. While serving as Mayor, Neil came out as a gay man and continued to serve Tempe with distinction, including winning re-election three times. After leaving office, Neil went on to serve as President of GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) for four years and currently serves as Chief Executive Officer of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.

In June 2012, Neil’s first book “The Campaign Within: A Mayor's Private Journey to Public Leadership” will debut. Part memoir, part inspirational autobiography, the book follows his personal and professional evolution through a life in politics, his civil rights activism, philanthropy, evolving LGBT issues, and the controversial principles behind being at the forefront of issues and action, the fortitude of our own private morality, diplomatic problem solving, and the stakes of leadership in the modern world.
