Kristin Russo and Dannielle Owens-Reid
“We all need kindness. We all need support. We all need love. That is why it is so important to be kind to the people around us.”
Kristin Russo and Dannielle Owens-Reid are the founders of Everyone Is Gay, a non-profit organization that promotes peer advocacy and provides outreach and resources to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) youth. Everyone Is Gay seeks to constantly examine how LGBTQ issues intersect with other communities through an ongoing nationwide tour of high school and college campuses that incites laughter, dialogue, and action.
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.
