Festival Volunteer Coordinator
A native of Columbus, Ohio, Ty relocated to the Tamp Bay area from Sarasota in the year 2000. A long-time advocate for the LGBTQ+ community and related causes, Ty quickly immersed himself into the local scene by volunteering his time and talent for several civil rights, social and community-based organizations. An avid fan of film and screen, Ty took an immediate interest in volunteering for TIGLFF; always eager to help out in any capacity. Having served as a volunteer during each year’s Festival for several years prior, I gratefully and happily inherited the role as TIGLFF’s Volunteer Coordinator in 2010, and now resides in Tampa.
Festival Staff Member and Volunteer since 2010.
