Point Scholar 2007 – 2010
At Georgetown University, Tim finally found an environment where he felt comfortable enough to come out of the closet as a gay man. As manager of a campus theatre, he used the stage as a vehicle for promoting social awareness. Many of the plays Tim helped to produce — including Angels in America and The Laramie Project — aspired to increase visibility of issues affecting the GLBT community.
His work on The Laramie Project first introduced Tim to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). Hired as an intern, he was quickly promoted to a full-time staff member at HRC. His involvement with HRC allowed him to participate in LGBTQ civil rights battles, including the fight against the Federal Marriage Amendment. His time at HRC inspired Tim to pursue a law degree and continue to fight discrimination on a large scale.
