About

Board of Directors

Meet our amazing Board Members.

As community members and volunteers, Gay City’s Board of Directors use their diverse perspectives, experiences, and identities to inform and promote the organization.

The Gay City Board is deeply committed to increasing the representation of communities most impacted by the injustices our mission, vision, and values seek to address.
