Born and raised in Utah and currently residing in San Francisco, I’m the Director of Marketing for Steamworks, the bathhouse chain. I have a long history with LGBT activism, mostly in Utah where I was a founding member of Queer Nation Utah, the LGBT Liaison to Salt Lake City Mayor Deedee Coradini, a board member of the Desert and Mountain States Lesbian and Gay Conference, and active in leadership and membership of many other community organizations and LGBT employee groups over the years. As a former Mormon, I have a particular interest in the intersection between the LGBT fight for equality and the Mormon Church’s battle to deprive LGBT folks of full equality.
I was a member of the Drag group “the Lovebirds” for 3 years in the 1980’s, and also performed briefly in the 90’s as part of “Sylvia and the Pykettes”. I clearly have thing for girl groups.
As a voracious consumer of pop culture and film I have a lifetime of obsessive knowledge about film, television and music. I’m an opinionated queen and happy to share my thoughts with anyone who will listen or read.
