Pronouns: he/him & they/them

Coming out as an adult has empowered Jeff to discover his passion for working on LGBTQ rights as an advocate.

 

Jeff has assisted the owner of Arthur Murray in Westchester County, NY to amend their outdated policies on same-sex dancing to make their business more queer friendly. In Nashville, TN, he created a gay bear's social group to build community.  While earning his MBA at Monroe College, he served as the president of Rainbow Alliance, the LGBT club on campus.  While there, the club increased visibility with various projects, added gender neutral bathrooms to every building on both campuses, and marched in NYC's Pride March for the first time. Currently, Jeff serves as a volunteer a facilitator at The Loft LGBT Community Center in White Plains, NY and serves on the Board of Directors at The Loft LGBT Community Center.

Jeff is thrilled to be at Queery working with his partners to further advocate for LGBTQ rights, visibility and acceptance. He wants to assist in educating people on the various aspects, struggles and triumphs found in Queer Communities.
