About André Thomas
Born in Trinidad and Tobago, André Thomas has spent years working behind the scenes starting from a performance arts middle school to running lights and runway shows in high school. A graduate of Yale University and a decorated United States Marine Corps veteran with multiple deployments, he honed his production skills serving as the Production Officer of the Yale Dramatic Association, Yale School of Drama and Repertory productions, and production training at Florida International University and YSD.
Prior to moving to New York City, André captained Stonewall Sports teams and ran events for the Stonewall National Sports Tournament. He produced events for Capital Pride, including the Sunset Dance Party, and served as the Head of Production/Treasurer on the Board of the CHERRY Fund, the longest running charity circuit event in the nation devoted to HIV and mental health/suicide prevention. At Heritage of Pride he served as the Volunteer Captain for PrideFest, the largest LGBTQIA+ street festival in the world, and Director of Pride Island, celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2021. Now, as the first African-American male elected to the position of Co-Chair, he is excited to shepherd the organization that serves as the stewards of the Pride movement.
