Logan started his tenure with Q Center in June of 2010 and has overseen all media relations and communications for the organization since that time. Lynn has created and managed many successful programs like Queer Heroes NW, the Q Center Concert Series, QBlog and the Inter-Community Dialogue Project.

Thanks to his efforts over the past four and a half years, Queer Heroes NW is one of our most dynamic offerings, the Concert Series has brought in countless internationally-known LGBTQ artists, comedians and musicians, QBlog has become Q Center’s primary communications tool (receiving over 14 million hits annually from 150,000+ readers) and real, lasting community change has come by way of the deep dialogues he has shepherded. These, and the many other success stories from Logan Lynn’s time at Q Center, have been seeds that will continue to grow and live on long after his departure.

Lynn’s passion for lifting up LGBTQ voices, and his ability to push those stories out into mainstream culture, has been invaluable to this agency. We will be sad to see him go, but we are all thrilled for him, for Trillium Family Services, and for the world that he will be bringing his gifts to this new, very important work.

We are so thankful for Logan’s years at Q Center, and we wish him well on this next step of his journey.

Congratulations, LL!
