Founder & CEO, New York
It is the honor of my life to serve as Founder and CEO of The Colors of Love.
Growing up in a small Massachusetts town, I have first hand experience of what the adverse effects of discrimination and hate crimes against the gay community truly are. I also know that having had accepting parents and a network of supportive friends who love me unconditionally, was not the norm.
There is much work to be done before the gay and transgender communities will ever find acceptance. We live in an opinion based society – shared on social media and relished by broadcasting platforms that offer corporate opinions as “news.” . Here, The Colors of Love chooses to be a platform of truth authenticity, tolerance, and unconditional love.
It has become an anthem of my life that people be treated with kindness and respect.
