M Valladolid, San Diego Pride Youth Programs Coordinator, is a proud Afro-Latino, ENTP, and Capricorn.
M was born and raised in San Diego and an alumni of SDSCPA. They also served on the GLSEN National Student Council, where they collaborated with 18 other youth from across the country on days of action such as Day of Silence, No Name Calling Week, LGBTQ History Month, and Latinx Heritage Month. In addition to working at Pride, M is a part-time student at Southwestern College preparing to transfer to SDSU’s LGBTQ Studies program.
When not at Pride, M leads the GLSEN San Diego SHINE Team, works with Trans TRUTH Council, and cares for their lizard Frank-N-Furter (Frankie) Valladolid. They are ecstatic to join the Pride family and look forward to fostering growth and agency in the lives of queer youth in San Diego.
