Kaley is a proud second generation genderqueer queerspawn from North Carolina. Raised in Charlotte, Kaley was brought to America by two loving mothers when they were 6 months old from Lima, Peru. Kaley has a large amount of pride in their queerspawn identity and has been organizing in their local communities since 2009 with an emphasis on support for youth in queer families. Kaley graduated summa cum laude in 2013 with a degree in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies from the University of North Carolina at Asheville and completed a Nonprofit Management certificate program at Duke University in 2014.
Thanks to the merger of COLAGE and Family Equality Council in 2019, Kaley transferred over to the Family Equality Council team with 8 years of experience organizing Queerspawn, 3 years of COLAGE institutional knowledge, a grounding in social justice and equity, and an eagerness to continue supporting youth and adult children in LGBTQ+ families.
