GSBA Welcomes Remi Tinerella to the GSBA Staff

Remi Tinerella HeadshotHi! I'm Remi, the new Account Services Manager, and I'm super excited to be here. My pronouns are he/him. 

I come from a background of office administration and customer service, and in 2019, I moved to Seattle with my partner. As two trans men, we were drawn to this beautiful city for its vibrant LGBTQ+ community. The pandemic put a damper on our exploration of that community, so I'm looking forward to the connections I will make through GSBA!

My primary goal with GSBA is to foster positive relationships with our members. I hope to help our members get the most of their benefits and promote the opportunities that advance economic development for all of us under the LGBTQ+ umbrella. Part of what brought me to this organization was seeing the impact of its work to provide a marginalized community access to the resources necessary for success. As a queer man of color, GSBA's values of diversity and inclusiveness hold deeply personal meaning to me, so being here is a wonderful opportunity to be involved in fulfilling this organization's mission in a hands-on way. 

At home, my partner and I live in an all-trans masculine household of ourselves and three close friends, alongside our resident feline landlords - Alduin, Carrots, Princess, and Rorschach. I'm a big fan of live music, particularly metal shows, and when I'm not seeing a concert I can usually be found playing video games, or recreationally engaging in creative writing or visual art. I love collecting books and magazines about and researching "retro" interior design and fashion, as well as the older styles that influenced it. History of many kinds is also an interest of mine; I'd have a hard time choosing just one era with something neat about it to name, though I'm enthusiastic about learning queer history in various different cultures, including our own!

I can't wait to meet everyone. I'm looking forward to working with you all!
