Farand Gunnels is Pride Foundation's Regional Development Organizer in Eastern Washington: I was born in Crow Agency, MT and raised in Billings, MT. In 1993 I moved to Spokane, WA where I met my partner, David. I began my journey with Pride Foundation serving on the local steering committee which led to my employment in 2002. I am passionate about the work I do at Pride Foundation, whose mission, vision, and values ring true to my heart. The most inspiring part of my job is meeting with and hearing the stories of people and organizations throughout the regions that are making an impact in their communities. Outside of Pride Foundation I serve on the board of the Montana Two Spirit Society.
