Jonathan has worked within media for over 20 years. He started a non-profit organization called “SHYNE” in 2005 that battled prejudice and discrimination through the use of the arts. SHYNE debuted “The Concert For a Hate Free World,” a completely volunteer driven stage production with choir, orchestra and even an opening interactive film put on at The Wenatchee Convention Center in 2009. He has been an activist since coming out in an article in The Wenatchee World at 20 years old and accepting the presidency of the Wenatchee Valley College Gay-Straight Alliance a few years later. He has dreamed of this show for over a decade and is extremely excited to continue his mission to be a part of the continued growth of the LGBT community locally, nationally and beyond. It is with great honor that he shares this platform with such passionate, fun, and most of all, OUTSpoken individuals. JOIN THE CONVERSATION!
