Taylor Biro is a dedicated community advocate who has successfully raised over $15 million for nonprofits across the country. Their journey began during high school when they experienced homelessness and discovered sanctuary within their local punk community. Pooling resources in mutual aid spaces grew into Taylor’s founding of Going Places, a Street Outreach program providing essential support services for homeless youth. Going Places quickly became the region’s only safe and affirming youth-focused LGBTQ space.
Additionally, Taylor holds a master’s in social work and actively contributes to their community by serving on the Board of their local Continuum of Care, where they play a pivotal role in addressing homelessness and related issues. In previous roles, Taylor excelled as a Funding Strategist with Funding for Social Change and Bread and Roses Collective. In earlier years, Taylor served as the Director of Strategic Initiatives for the Florida Council Against Sexual Violence, making significant contributions to advocacy and support for unserved communities.
Today, Taylor proudly serves as the Foundation Giving Officer with the National LGBTQ Task Force, where their skills and passion converge to drive impactful change. Beyond their professional commitments, you can often find Taylor enjoying the tranquility of floating down a Florida river, crafting award-winning vegan mac ‘n’ cheese, or hunting for vintage treasures at estate sales.
