Jason Bergman

Class of 2023 BEQ Pride LGBTQ Leader Under 40

Pronouns: He, Him

Age: 26


Who or what inspires your leadership purpose? And why?

The only reason I would want to be recognized is to help highlight some of the work and goals I have in assisting Democrats and especially LGBTQ+ community members in becoming elected officials to help represent the communities they live, work, and play in. Over the next decade, I hope the LGBTQ+ community can be recognized more as strong leaders. I hope to see an increase in LGBTQ representation across the nation in places like town councils, block associations, state legislatures and even an LGBTQ president. I think it’s something important we can all strive toward. ~Jason Bergman
