david mariner

When David Mariner first began working at The DC Center for the LGBT Community, he had an operating budget of around $2,000. Now, The DC Center serves the community with nearly half a million. Mariner, a 1993 Furman University political science and music alum, will take his skills to CAMP Rehoboth in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, as executive director. He reflected on his accomplishments at The DC Center in a Q&A with Washington Blade. Giving credit to the center’s community members, Mariner says he’s most proud of The DC Center’s work in marriage equality, HIV prevention, advocacy for homeless LGBTQ youth, and peer-led support groups such as the newest one that serves LGBTQ military members and first responders.
