Joe Servidio (they/them), newly elected Vice President of Community Partnerships, is excited to join the GLAA Board to reassert queer interests in D.C. public policy. Joe came to D.C. in 2012 to attend Georgetown University. Upon graduation, Joe completed an AmeriCorps service year at Joseph’s House, a hospice and respite home in Adams Morgan for chronically unhoused people living with HIV and/or other chronic illnesses. Today, Joe is the Program Director at the Washington AIDS Partnership (WAP), managing public-private partnerships with community-based public health organizations across the greater Washington region. At WAP, Joe’s goal is to identify the ways in which housing, safe drug consumption sites, and decriminalization of sex work (just to name a few!) are equally, if not more, important to public health than increased access to medical provision. Outside of WAP, Joe serves on the Joseph’s House Board of Directors, organizes with the D.C. LGBTQ Budget Coalition, and dances at Trade bar & makeshift discotheque. Joe is excited to expand GLAA and its mission, further develop community consciousness of what is and is not a queer issue (hint: everything is!), and make friends along the way (*insert pageant wave here*).
