Brandon Wolf, a 30-year-old Pulse survivor and LGBTQ activist, recently accepted a full-time position at Equality Florida as the Central Florida development officer and the statewide media relations manager. He says he is happy to pursue his interest on a scale larger than “weekend activism.”
“Equality Florida and I have always had a really strong relationship,” Wolf says. “There’s so much I want to be able to do to help my community and the state of Florida.” After surviving the Pulse shooting which claimed the lives of 49 people, Wolf became a staunch activist for gun safety. At his new position with Equality Florida, he says he plans on advocating for
LGBTQ state-level protections, women’s reproduction rights and safe and healthy schools.
Wolf returns to Central Florida after moving to Tallahassee in 2017. “It feels awesome to be coming home,” he says. “I’ve been away for two years and it’s been two years too long.”
Wolf starts his new position at Equality Florida March 4.
