Kate McDonough | Director of Organizing

Prior to joining the GGE team, Kate was the Field Director on the Mel Wymore for City Council campaign. Kate developed and implemented the overall field strategy and managed six youth interns. Before jumping on the Wymore campaign, Kate was the Lead Organizer at the Empire State Pride Agenda, New York’s statewide lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights and advocacy organization. Throughout their time at the Empire State Pride Agenda, Kate ran many of the organization’s statewide campaigns including the Pride Agenda’s transgender equality and justice advocacy and educational initiatives and the successful 2011 marriage campaign. Kate also organized communities to support the Dignity for all Students Act and coordinated the Pride Agenda’s statewide faith based organizing work.
As a genderqueer person, Kate has seen first-hand the various ways gender based violence manifests itself within our society and has a strong commitment to ending it. Kate grew up in the Bronx, now lives in Brooklyn and feels truly honored to be able to do such important work in their home state.
