Our Very Own Honored by Windy City Times

It is my pleasure to announce that Brett Taylor is the proud recipient of Windy City Time’s 2012 30 Under 30 Award, which highlights outstanding young adults in Chicago’s LGBT community. Brett is extremely supportive of United Way of Metropolitan Chicago in many ways. He is currently the Issue Awareness Committee’s Vice Chairman for our Young Leaders Society, was featured in United Pride’s “It Gets Better” video and is a new member of our external Diversity Committee. His community involvement doesn’t stop there. He is also a member of the Education and Training Committee at the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance and a nominee for a large LGBTQ organization’s young leader’s board in Chicago. Brett is currently employed at The Chicago Children’s Museum where he is the Special Projects Coordinator for the Office of the President. He is also a member of the museum’s All Families Matter Initiative, which is a community outreach initiative designed to welcome and engage the LGBT community. He is an incredible work partner and friend and it was an honor to nominate Brett for this award. The celebration to announce all the recipients of Windy City Time’s 30 Under 30 Award will take place on June 28, 2012 at The Center on Halsted. Please join me in congratulating Brett for all his hard work and dedication! Blog post submitted on behalf of Frances Boehnlein, Fundraising Manager at United Way of Metropolitan Chicago.
