Hi! I’m Jacob, the LGBTQ+ Services Coordinator at The Epicenter. I am a Salinas native and have been doing LGBTQ+ community work in the Monterey Bay area both as a volunteer and as a professional for over 20 years. I am very passionate about the development and empowerment of young people, especially those representing marginalized communities, and I am excited and eager to continue the legacy of the fantastic humans that have done this work before me. I’m a geek for Claremont-era X-Men comics, pop music, glitter, donut shops, and neon colored everything. Remember that life is chaos, and it’s as important as it is brave to lean into the madness!
