About Us

Hello! My name is Michael. Growing up, I experienced the absence of community support in the form of resources that were specific to the LGBTQ+ community. Living in the Southbay, our community can appear rather homogenous when looking in from the outside. However, those who live here know how our community is truly diverse in all aspects. FREE 2B LGBT is one answer to the call for increased support and resources for LGBTQ+ people living in the Southbay.

Additionally, I am a licensed Marriage & Family therapist with a private practice located in Manhattan Beach. My specialty is in helping LGBTQ+ individuals reach their full potential through empowerment and advocacy. I have been a long-time civil rights advocate and passionately fought for marriage equality, FAIR Education Act, as well as the repeals of DOMA, Prop 8, and DADT.
