David Lenz has been volunteering with the LGBT+ community for the last 16 years. In 2004, when the Pride Festival was canceled due to lack of funding, he along with Robert Vitella, Dani Bobb, Marc Dubois, and others reorganized the festival. David Lenz created and introduced the first sponsorship package for the organization as well as revised and introduced the new “Pride Guide” publication. Over the years, he has served as sponsorship coordinator, pride guide coordinator, Board member, and festival chairperson.

He is also heavily involved in grant writing and the success of the organization’s social programs for the community.

In addition to his role as Past President / Treasurer with the Windsor-Essex Pride Fest, David is currently employed with Windsor Regional Hospital in the Public Affairs/Communications department. He has also served as a Fund Development Officer with Easter Seals Ontario and as Director of Development with the AIDS Committee of Windsor.

David strongly believes in the Windsor-Essex Pride Fest’s mission of strengthening the sense of community and contributing to the vibrancy, health, and overall well-being of people in the LGBIQ2S+ community in Windsor-Essex.
