Tim Bortner is currently a local business owner and in 2016 he graduated from Youngstown State University. While at YSU he focused on many areas, one of which was Graphic Design. He ran YSUnity at YSU for many years. Tim is known for his activism in the LGBTQ+ in the Mahoning Valley. Tim helped to form Full Spectrum Community Outreach because he saw a lack of services and resources for the LGBTQ+ in the area. When he's not overseeing Full Spectrum's operations, he is busy at work running his very own traveling carnival company. Which travels in Ohio and Pennsylvanian between the summer months. While festivals and graphic design are careers for Tim, helping the LGBTQ+ community is his passion.

LINDSEY ANDERSON

PRIDE DIRECTOR

SHE/HER/HERS

330.718.1859 Call/Text

Lindsey is currently a corrections officer and was previously a colorist and matrix educator for 15 years. In her time in corrections where shes managed the mental health unit the plight of the inmate LGBT+ population not having any representation really pulled her in the direction of educating others and spreading unity and understanding.  Working day in and day out with inmates who feel as though they don't have anyone has given her a unique perspective.  Having someone who gets their situations, problems and day to day struggles within facilities has made Lindsey that much more passionate about giving those who don’t have support a voice.  In her down time she flips furniture, goes to the gym, does urban exploring with her 2 dogs, does mixed media art of all types, collects oddities, does taxidermy and is an avid horror film fan.  She is very excited to bring her wide array of experiences and skills to the Pride In The Valley 2023 experience.
