Things we’re involved with in the community
What first inspired you to volunteer?I wanted to contribute to the LGBTQ+ community at UBC Okanagan. When I first started taking classes at the university, there was not much of a community, and the Pride Resource Centre was going through some difficult transitions. Both coordinators were graduating, and no one was in line to take over. I decided that I needed to step up and inspire UBCO to care about the LGBTQ+ community.Which cause are you most passionate about and why?While I work with all parts of the LGBTTQQ2IPA community, my passion is with gay men's health. I have been privileged to work with vancouver based organizations such as the CBRC (Community Based Research Centre) and the Provincial Gay Men's and HIV Working Group and the BC Centre for Disease Control. With these groups I contributed to a provincial action plan on HIV health and will be assisting with sexual health surveys during Vancouver Pride.
