Our Team

The Pride & Joy Project is always on the lookout for queer writers, bloggers, and interns to join the team! Storytelling brings us together. Storytelling creates community and connection. We aim to strengthen our community by having a wide variety of voices, stories, and backgrounds to share with you.  We are currently looking for an Intern and a Community Organizer to help us build networks in cities outside of San Francisco.

Kersh Branz 

Founder & Photographer

I'm passionate about community organizing, activism, art, and education. I grew up in Philadelphia and moved to San Francisco in 2009. My dream is to change the global narrative about our queer families one story at a time through photography, storytelling, and social media.
