Obermayer’s business immigration attorney Shaun Staller was featured in the Philadelphia Gay News on November 22, 2023, regarding his role as Social Events and Networking Co-Chair for the Philadelphia’s LGBTQ+ Bar Association. In addition to his role for the LGBTQ+ Bar Association, Shaun also serves on the board of Equality Forum, an LGBTQ+ national civic organization.

At that time, about 25 attorneys established what was then called Philadelphia Attorneys for Human Rights (PAHR).

Recent initiatives include establishing the Judicial Portrait Project, which honors and recognizes openly LGBTQ+ judges who retired from the bench.
