Daniel Tirabassi

Tim Bortner is currently a local business owner and 2016 graduate of Youngstown State University. While at YSU he focused on many areas, one of which was Graphic Design. He worked closely with YSUnity LGBTQIA+; Youngstown State University’s most visible and vocal GSA, for over 6 years holding different officer positions including President. Tim works very closely with the LGBTQIA+ population throughout the Mahoning Valley and is well known for his activism. Since graduating, he has kept strong relationships and networked with local LGBTQIA+ friendly businesses, and allies over the years. Tim helped to form BCC Full Spectrum Community Outreach Center because he saw a lack of services and resources for the LGBTQIA+ population in the tri-county and outlying areas. When he's not overseeing Full Spectrum's operations, he is busy at work running his very own carnival company. While fun events and graphic design are careers for Tim, helping the LGBTQIA+ community is his passion.
