Susan McGreivy (née Susan Douglas Gray; born October 24, 1939) is an American former competition swimmer who represented the United States at the 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne, Australia.[1] She competed in the preliminary heats of the women's 400-meter freestyle, and posted a time of 5:16.7.[1][2]

McGreivy became a lesbian activist and civil rights attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Southern California.[3][4] She had a "leading role" in a range of ACLU gay and lesbian civil rights issues, including a case against the Boy Scouts of America, a defense of the Gay Games against the United States Olympic Committee, and defense of the Norton Sound Eight.[5]
