Biography


HISTORY: Founded in 2010 by Kristin Russo and Dannielle Owens-Reid, Everyone Is Gay began as an advice website for all with an emphasis on LGBTQ youth. Through an integration of humor, honesty, and pictures of kittens on several social media outlets, Kristin and Dannielle found that they were able to support these youth while keeping them laughing. In 2011, Everyone Is Gay began visiting schools and community centers to reach a larger audience and to continue promoting a message of equality.

MISSION: Everyone Is Gay seeks to foster a future of equality and kindness by promoting peer advocacy and providing resources and outreach to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) youth. Engaging our audiences through evolving social media networks and direct interactions, Everyone Is Gay utilizes laughter, honesty, and dialogue as a vehicle for examining the commonality of LGBTQ issues with other communities (both mainstream and marginalized) to promote the understanding of common goals, collaboration, and action.

VISION: Everyone Is Gay envisions and works to create a future where people are kind to one another, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity; a future where we allow ourselves to connect across socially constructed divides through laughter and honesty; a future where human equality is realized through accessible, daily acts of change.
