Stephen McMahon

Stephen McMahon started at The LOFT as the Community Engagement Coordinator in October 2021. Through this role Stephen oversees The LOFT's volunteers and interns, conducts outreach to community members and other organizations, leads LOFT trainings, and works with the programming team to develop new programming strategies. They joined the LOFT as a Media Intern and Volunteer Coordinator in June of 2021. Stephen is a Westchester native and their passion for LGBTQ+ advocacy has grown throughout their time at university. 

Stephen's drive to work in LGBTQ+ advocacy began in 2016 when they were appointed the role of executive board president for GLOW of WCC (LGBTQ+ Club on Campus). This was the beginning of their experience working toward the heightened visibility and inclusion of the LGBTQ+ Community as a whole. As of May 2021, Stephen currently holds a B.A. in Liberal Studies from Purchase College SUNY. Through their research as an undergrad, Stephen learned the ways in which we can provide a stronger sense of belonging among society as a minority group, and continues to learn new ways to this approach everyday by working alongside community organizations, volunteers, interns, and members of the LGBTQ+ community at The LOFT.

They have a love for fashion and their favorite designer is Telfar Clemens for their non-gendered designs, and brand inclusivity.
