Coming out as an adult has empowered Jeff Gurkin-Young to discover his passion for working on LGBTQ rights as an advocate.
Jeff has assisted the owner of Arthur Murray in Westchester County, NY to amend their outdated policies on same-sex dancing to make their business more queer friendly. In Nashville, TN, he created a gay bear’s social group to build community. While earning his MBA at Monroe College, he served as the president of Rainbow Alliance, the LGBT club on campus. While there, the club increased visibility with various projects, added gender neutral bathrooms to every building on both campuses, and marched in NYC’s Pride March for the first time.
Jeff currently works at Mount Sinai in NYC as the Director, Revenue Cycle & Patient Access.
