As an LGBTQ non-profit founder and speaker on living authentically and embracing uniqueness, Rachel Covello knows that sharing personal and community stories bridges divides, breaks down walls and provides a platform for empathy, understanding, and openness, furthering equality.

After purchasing a home in Gulfport, Florida, Covello fell in love with the St. Petersburg/Tampa area.  The diversity of the people, beautiful gulf coast, and up and coming corporate community sparked creativity from within. Having run a successful LGBTQ business and community journal in Pennsylvania, Covello further explored sharing the stories of the Florida’s LGBTQ community and encouraging people to experience Florida’s most inclusive places and people.
