Join us for the next in our series Breakfast with Champions, as we host Matthew T. McMorrow, Director of LGBTQ Affairs with the Office of New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, on Wednesday, June 24.

Mr. McMorrow recently started with the Governor’s Office after serving for the last four years as Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Senior Advisor for LGBTQ Community Affairs. During his time in the Mayor’s Office, he worked with First Lady Chirlane McCray to develop and launch the NYC Unity Project, the City’s first multi-agency program to support and uplift LGBTQ young people, and he led the City’s coordinated effort to prepare City agencies and community stakeholders to host World Pride / Stonewall 50 last year.

Previously, Mr. McMorrow served as the Director of Government Affairs at the Empire State Pride Agenda, overseeing advocacy efforts in Albany and New York City. During his career, McMorrow has worked for the NYC law firm Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, where he assisted pro bono transgender clients to legally change their names and identity documents.  Additionally, he served on the boards of directors of the Brooklyn Community Pride Center and the Counseling Service of the Eastern District of New York. He also co-founded Equality New York, which is dedicated to advancing and defending LGBTQ rights in New York State.

This event will be streamed live on our Facebook page 
and a recording will be available to view afterwards.
