As BiNet USA’s President, Faith Cheltenham works to advocate for bisexual, pansexual, fluid, and queer (bi+) communities. Faith got her start in LGBTQIA advocacy as a Human Rights Campaign intern on the Gore 2000 campaign, and in 2002, she co-founded UCLA’s BlaQue for LGBT students of African descent. In 2006, she appeared in the Emmy winning reality series on race in America, “Black. White.” which was produced by Ice Cube. After spending time working in corporate America doing digital branding for Macmillan and Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, Faith started focusing full time on bisexual advocacy in 2011. In 2013, Faith co-organized the first bisexual community issues roundtable at the White House and in 2014, she was honored to meet President Obama privately alongside other LGBT leaders before witnessing the President sign an Executive Order protecting LGBT employees of federal contractors from discrimination. Faith writes on bisexual community issues, people of color community concerns and other topics for South Florida Gay News, Huffington Post, BiNet USA and thefayth.net, her personal blog. Faith identifies herself as a Black bisexual queer woman of color. She has a biracial family and is the proud parent of a gender expansive child, Storm (age 4). Faith lives in Los Angeles where she’s also stepmom to Cadence (age 8) and is married to Matt, a Lead Android developer at Grindr.
