Meet Carlos Fernández!
We're excited to share that Carlos Fernández has joined our team as a Logistics and Event Specialist! Carlos will be supporting our 15 anniversary events & Encuentro 2022.
Carlos was born and raised in Durham, NC, and has served varied and diverse roles in his local community. He began his professional life at Duke University after receiving a degree in Business and Marketing. In 2014, he launched a rapidly expanding career as a Drag artist that invigorated his desire to create and facilitate safe spaces and events for the LGBTQ+ community. He eventually left his position at Duke to more fully pursue his passion for community outreach, engagement and education. In addition to his position at the Latino Commission on AIDS and with Latinos in the South he also serves as co-chair of Pride: Durham, NC.
His goal is to continue using his art, education, and experience to provide space and support to the LGBTQ+ community, especially the BIPOC, Latinx and trans communities, and to promote safe sex practices and the accessibility of sexual health resources.
