I am proud to announce on Pride weekend that Lawrence Wong, the longest-serving City College Trustee – 20 years! – and pioneer in the LGBTQ community as the first openly-gay Asian American to hold public office in the U.S., has officially endorsed my campaign to become your next City College Trustee!
City College has long been a leader in supporting the LGBTQ community – academically with the LGBT Studies Department and in the community with the Queer Resource Center.
Supporting the LGBTQ students and City College community is critical. I will continue to be a strong advocate for LGBTQ rights and I will continue to be an ally with the LGBTQ community. As Trustee, I will work to ensure the Queer Resource Center has the resources needed to fully support the center’s work empowering City College students to thrive.
I look forward to marching in support of our LGBTQ community at the Pride Parade this weekend, and I hope to see you there!
