Alfonso François, Communications Coordinator

Alfonso François joined GLAAD’s Communications team in April 2018 as a coordinator. He’s since been responsible for securing top-tier press for the organization, assisting in talent management and supporting staff for key events like the GLAAD Media Awards. His goal is to help amplify GLAAD’s voice to the LGBTQ community and their allies to keep fighting for 100% equality.

Prior to joining GLAAD, Alfonso was offered the Posse Full Tuition Leadership Scholarship and studied Film & New Media at Wheaton College (MA). Upon completion, he spent his professional years gaining experience in journalism (HuffPost, Blavity), public relations (Relevance International) and consumer marketing (Viacom-MTV, VH1, LogoTV). Alfonso has written about and represented powerful subjects in the worlds of real estate, entertainment, politics, science and technology.

Though communications is his passion, Alfonso is dedicated to providing a platform for all of the LGBTQ community to make their marks on the world.
