Owner & Co-Founder
There was a place on the Ocean City boardwalk called the Pavilion that was like a second home to me growing up. Even though it was 16 pillars and a roof somehow it was the most welcoming place in the world. It didn't matter what color, shape, size, gender, sexual preference you were part of the group the only thing that people wanted from you was for you to be yourself. I grew up with family members and friends of family that I had heard rumors about, but nothing was ever confirmed, and I remember thinking why did it matter? So, when I found the Pavilion, I knew that safe places were a real thing, But I didn't understand why the world wasn't the safe space. I want to offer the world a safe space like the one I had growing up.
Head Of Events
Growing up in the late 80s through 90s, I am not sure if my family was just super progressive or if in my area it really wasn’t a big deal. I had a lot of “aunts” and “uncles” who were in the LGBTIQA+ community and not “hidden” about it. It wasn’t until I moved to Southern NJ that I began having friends who got kicked out/disowned by their families. Once I was more settled and could do so, I began having those friends over for holidays and made sure they had a table to sit at on Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc. When my youngest was 2 we started seeing signs that they were not their assumed gender at birth. We allowed them to just BE. At 9 they made us aware that they were a girl which we embraced. Then later (teens) that they are primarily female but felt a bit more fluid. We attend different Pride events throughout the year and (until COVID) attended the Philadelphia Trans-Health Convention each year.
