During his 2L year, Gavin was Harvard Law's Student Representative to the Massachusetts LGBTQ Bar Association’s Board of Directors, where he regularly opened the lines of communication between a number of LGBTQ student groups in the greater Boston area. Gavin was elected to the Board in 2013, and he now serves as its Co-Chair. In addition, Gavin has served on the Host Committee of Professionals for Transgender Rights since 2010, and he dedicates the majority of his pro bono time to representing transgender and gender non-conforming clients, as well as LGBTQ clients fleeing life-threatening persecution in their home countries and seeking asylum in the United States.
