Board of Directors
Govinda (They/Them) is a nonbinary artist who moved to Asheville in 2018 from Tampa, Florida after several previous visits enjoying the strong LGBTQIA+ presence and the beautiful mountains. As a military brat who has moved countless times and lived all over the world, they have found the feeling of community cultivated here in Asheville to be very meaningful. Govinda graduated from Florida State University in 2016 with an MA in Art History, specializing in LGBTQIA+ Art. Today, they are working with Dr. Amanda Wray & UNCA's LGBTQIA+ Oral History Archive to record the history of LGBTQIA+ people in the Blue Ridge Mountains. They are also working with the Pride Arts Council to organize and promote local LGBTQIA+ artists. They are proud to be helping the community by serving on the Blue Ridge Pride board.
