Award from Cincinnati City Council 2022
In 2022, I was recognized by Cincinnati City Council as a Pride Month Honoree, as nominated by Councilmember Reggie Harris for my work at the Cincinnati Public Library and the Queer Gabby reference tool, my involvement in local LGBTQ+ history preservation with the Ohio Lesbian Archives, for my efforts with Cincinnati Pride and TreeHouse Cincinnati, and for Smoke & Queers Burlesque and Drag Troupe. A resolution was presented at City Hall on June 23, 2022.
Big Brothers Big Sisters
As a junior and senior at Middletown High School, I was a Big Sister to my little, Bradley in 2011 and 2012. Bradley was a student at Rosa Parks Elementary. See their elementary school graduation photos here.
George Will Protest
I helped organize and participated in a peaceful protest held by Miami University students in 2014 against speaker and politician George Will because of his comments on campus sexual assault. See a copy of the article and this photo in the Miami Unversity Student Newspaper here.
In 2014, I was a camp counselor and assisting medical staff at Camp Korelitz in Clarksville, Ohio, which is specifically for children between 8-16 affected by Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes.
