My name is Lee King, I am trans FTM. I have been trans for years. I have been on hormones for awhile now.I have 2 degrees 1 in electronics the other in criminal justice with an undergraduate certificate in cyber crime. I want to be able to spread positivity, decency, and happiness to our community.I want future generations to be able to have the freedom they deserve to live their truth. Being a member of the rainbow support group board has made it possible for me to help more on the front lines as well as in the back. To show people that it’s never to late to start living your true self. I want to inspire people not just their minds I want to inspire their souls as well. Forgiveness is for you not for them. Its ok not to be ok just don't stay there to long. Never be afraid to be you and live your truth.

Hello Everyone! My name is Brandon Watford and I have been a member of the Rainbow since 2012. At the time, this small group, became my friends and eventually my family. So many great and memorable experiences and people. They’ve always been there when I need them, no matter the time of day. My only wish for the Rainbow is growth. There’s always someone we can help, even if they don’t know it yet. I’m embracing a new chapter in my life right now and will be traveling around the country for work. During this time, I’ll be sharing our name and mission with any local LGBTQ+ Businesses and Groups. Together we can change the would, I can’t wait to be apart of the history yet to come!
