Meet Fiona and Grant, TWC DC's Community Managers, and Geoff, TWC DC's Volunteer Alumni Manager. They help the city's LGBTQs meet each other and paint the town red (and orange and yellow and green, blue, and purple). Want to get in touch? Shoot them an email.
Meet Fiona: 5 languages + 3 passports = She's basically the lesbian polyglot James Bond. #nuffsaid
Meet Fiona: Music blogger, human theremin, & mixtape maker - she's somehow the worst dancer you will ever meet (but not for lack of trying)
Meet Fiona: Modern day mix of April Ludgate, Virginia Woolf, & Bagheera (the panther from the Jungle Book); you should be her bud.
Meet Geoff: Making DC Minnesota-nice since 2008. Favorite brunch topics include Alan Turing and whiskey preferences (Kentucky bourbon yes, scotch never).
Meet Geoff: Showtunes Monday
regular, Frozen singalongs always. He bleeds Hoya blue twice over, and always has the perfect gif-sponse. #NotTodaySatan
Meet Geoff: Whether he's slapping a cup, kicking a ball, or roaming the streets (odds are 17th or U), you can always sit with him. Except Gretchen Wieners.
Meet Grant: Sweater collector extraordinaire, caffeine fiend, never the shortest person in the room.
Meet Grant: Chicago (suburbs) born and raised, aspiring owner of glasses for every mood, avid technophile.
Meet Grant: Bleeds glitter, most likely found in a grocery store aisle, believes confidence is the key to dancing. #fakeittilyoumakeit
THE CORPS, DC
What is the Corps? And why are you already so obsessed with them?
The Corps is the TWC movement embodied. It is a group of people who represent the energy, diversity, welcoming nature, and strength of the movement. They show up early to all TWC events. Shake hands as people walk through the door. Take selfies with their phones. And post them on Twitter. And that’s just the beginning. You can see/hug/love the current Corps team below.
If you're new to DC, tired of your current friends, wondering where to find the best late night food, or just need to learn how to tie a bow tie, then you've arrived in the right place. Each Corps member has gone through extensive training on all of these fronts. Use them. Abuse them. And ask them hard questions. "I'm new to DC HELP AHHHHHH" is perfectly appropriate.
