Profile PictureProfile Picture

Tina White is the Executive Director of the Blue Ridge Pride Center, a member of the board of directors for the Human Rights Campaign, and a Democratic precinct chair.
Tina entered the workforce as a white, Ivy League-educated male. She spent most of the next 30 years helping corporate executives to transform their sprawling organizations. In 2013, Tina embarked on her most ambitious transformation project yet: herself. With the support of her wife, family and colleagues, Tina finally acknowledged the gender she had worked so hard to hide.
Today, Tina’s transformation continues. She is learning how to be a community activist and a public servant. She speaks and writes on issues of social justice and personal identity. In 2015, she published Between Shadow & Sun: A Husband‘s Journey Through Gender - A Wife’s Labor of Love.
Tina holds an MBA in Strategy & Finance from the Booth School of Business and a BA in Economics from Princeton University. She lives in Asheville, North Carolina with Mary, her wife of nineteen years. From there, they watch their five children and five grandchildren take on the world.
