Sam Charney


Sam is a non-binary, genderqueer person who is a sophomore theater major at Denver School of the Arts. Sam has been passionate about social change related to gender identity and LGBTQ+ issues ever since 5th grade when Sam researched gender stereotypes for the school science fair. This sparked Sam’s interest in continuing this type of activism! Some of the recent projects that Sam has participated in were writing a social justice show “One Heart United” with Rainbow Alley that was performed at Pride in 2021 and helping run the school’s GSA Instagram. Sam is going to use this voice to advocate for all LGBTQ+ youth in Colorado to have safe spaces in schools and to be able to live their truths openly and proud! Sam is excited to be able to use this platform to be able to make a change in Colorado!
