Tiffani St. Cloud|
(1978 - living) U.S.A.
At age 18, Tiffani's youth seems not to match her significant passion for people and her leadership ability. Yet Tiffani was the motivating force behind organization of a student group, called Pride, at Chicago's Whitney Young Magnet High School, a support group for lesbian, gay, bisexual and questioning youth.
Pride is now the 2nd largest student organization at the school, providing a safe space where people can talk about issues of sexual orientation and learn to be more tolerant. She is also co-chair Smith College's Lesbian Bisexual Alliance's Women of Color Committee.
The group, formed in 1996, exists to provide support for all students at Whitney Young, including gay, lesbian, and bisexual students; to help people of all orientations to overcome prejudice by promoting tolerance; and to educate students about issues affecting those perceived to be different.
Tiffani is "out" to her family and friends. She believes that silence aids those who would oppress others. She is the youngest person inducted into the city of Chicago, Commission on Human Relations Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame.
