Besides “Tyrone,” most folks know me as “TC” or “TJ.” I go by he/him pronouns and have been GSAFE’s Youth Leadership Organizer for just over a year. Coming from one of the oldest and proudest black families in Madison, I’ve channeled a lot of that pride into my activism in the LGBTQIA+ community, specifically with teenagers and young adults. I firmly believe that educating our next generation of queer youth is so important to our future and our growth in humanity. I spend a lot of my time with GSAFE running youth leadership summits, building connections with schools across the state, and above all else, creating safe spaces for all who need it. Aside from the work I do in the community, I enjoy going to the gym and socializing at our local queer bars. I look forward to playing hockey with the Madison Gay Hockey Association later this year.
