Janice Thom
Director of Operations for Development

Janice Thom joined the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force as director of donor relations in May 2004.

Janice was the Director of Special Events at the Task Force until May of 2009. Previous to her time at the Task Force, she was the manager of Prospect Research for American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR). Prior to working at amfAR, she was with FIND/SVP as a senior consultant in the Basic Industries area. She retains a bizarre and slightly outdated body of knowledge about mini-mills, housing starts and the mining industry.

Thom has been involved in organizing LGBT Pride events in New York for more than 20 years. She was a member of Heritage of Pride, organizers of New York City’s LGBT Pride events, for 20 years and, from time to time, is proud to assist this all-volunteer managed organization. She is also the former president of Interpride, the international association of pride organizations.
