One of the many hats Executive Director Brian Silva wears for Marriage Equality USA is that of heading up our New York City Regional Organizing Committee.
A passionate leader, Brian has a steadfast dedication to LGBTIQ equality, to non-profit work, and to collaboration with other organizations. In addition to organizing local events and political actions, Brian can be seen biking across Manhatten on his way to any one of myriad meetings, or manning a phone at a NYC phone bank, working for the right-to-marry for LGBT couples in other states. Brian was honored in 2013 by our partner organiztion GetEQUAL for his work as a community ally. Hailing orginally from Northern California, Brian currently lives with his partner Jonathan in New York City.
