Residing in their home state of Tennessee, Jordan Scruggs is a strong advocate for the LGBTQ community and strives to forever bring hope and change for the current and next generation of dreamers.
Being heavily involved with politics, civil rights, and activism, their personal story has been featured in The New York Times and GLAAD online segments. Involvement with The Trevor Project also led them the honor of delivering that story at their Trevor Live event in 2013.
With their passion being in communications and connecting with the world around them, they’re honored to have participated in events such as SPARK: Fyre Media Camp, The Trevor Project's Youth Advisory Council, and local and national political campaigns.
As a writer, they proudly write with Echoing Ida. As a community and statewide activist, their work has been highlighted for LGBTQ activism with MTV’s Logo Young Trailblazer Award and America Reframed. This past November, Scruggs had their work highlighted by Organizing For Action and was able to introduce President Obama because of it.
They hope to be active for a better tomorrow for a very long time.
