Recent Transitions at Pride Center of Vermont
To Our Community,
After much consideration, Susan Hartman has decided to step down as Executive Director of the Pride Center. We are grateful for Susan's service and offer her our best wishes as she departs. We thank her for coming into, leading, and connecting with our community with such earnestness and sincerity. We regret that she is leaving the Pride Center and want to express our deep appreciation for her leadership and dedication.
The board of directors is pleased to announce that Rex Butt has assumed the position of Interim Executive Director. Rex will serve through June of 2018, and will work to maintain the programmatic priorities of the Pride Center while a permanent Director is identified.
We welcome Rex, who will be transitioning from being a stalwart volunteer and board member to being our new Interim Director. Rex is an avid activist and ally, as well as the proud father of a transgender daughter. In addition to being the author of Now What? A Guidebook for Families with Transgender Children, Rex has been a long-time, passionate advocate for the LGBTQ community. Prior to moving to Vermont a year ago, Rex served on the Board of the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Center and co-founded the Kingston, NY PFLAG Chapter. He has presented workshops and trainings at conferences and organizations across the nation and has mentored hundreds of families with LGBTQ loved ones.
At the Pride Center, Rex has been an integral member of the Trans & Gender Non-Conforming Community Project, and through his work as facilitator for the Families, Partners, Friends, and Allies of Trans Adults he has assisted many individuals in learning to better support their transgender loved ones. We look forward to having Rex at the helm as we move through this transition.
Rex is eager to engage our community and wishes for all to know that his door is open. Welcome, Rex!
