Jayce baron, President
Jayce is a writer, social entrepreneur, and advocate for the LGBT millennial. Born and raised in Southern California with a degree and background in entertainment communications, he has dedicated his skills and experience to advancing the community with a touch of his own flare.
With his own personal testimony as an openly gay black male raised in the first family of a baptist church, his stories have been able to guide not only the LGBT community, but anyone who has been tried with conflict and acceptance within culture, family, and themselves.
He has always found a way to turn his creative ideas into a reality. In February 2015 he produced and hosted the first Kiss & Tell LGBT panel in Downtown Los Angeles. Kiss & Tell Networks has now became national introducing the quarterly live show, youth programs, Podcast Kiss & Tell Radio, digital magazine, and more.
Jayce's efforts have been recognized globally as one of the #16Heros by Together for Girls along with US Vice President Joe Biden and Ashley Judd, the "Image Award" by In The Meantime Men group in Los Angeles, "Best Youth Organizer" by Ivan Daniel Productions, as well as recognition from the Mayor of Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and several other political officials across the nation.
In fall of 2016, Jayce told his story of sexual assault through his column on HIV Equal Online. He as invited to speak at the State Capital at a Press Conference to address rape culture from a male perspective pushing SB 813 revoking the Statute of Limitation on rape in California. Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill in September 2016 removing the limit on the right for victims to press charges against their attacker.
He continues to bring awareness to the issue and encourages people to use their voice to make a change in the world.
