Pride Series Day 11 we sat down and chatted with Mason Dunn. Mason Dunn (he/him or they/them) is the State and Local Policy Manager for GLSEN. They are the former Executive Director of the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC), and has worked in the national movement for transgender rights for over 15 years. During their time at MTPC, Mason successfully advocated for the advancement of nonbinary gender markers on Massachusetts state ID's, participated in coalition to address restrictions in healthcare and gender marker changes on Massachusetts birth certificates, and worked to build the coalition which passed state-wide nondiscrimination protections in public accommodations for transgender and nonbinary people. In 2018, Mason co-chaired the historic 2018 Yes on 3 campaign, which successfully defended the Massachusetts' trans-inclusive public accommodation nondiscrimination law, in the nation's first ever state-wide vote on transgender rights.

Beyond their full time work, Mason teaches at UNH in Manchester in the Communication's Department, is a board member with The Equality Federation, and serves on the state Commission on LGBTQ Youth. Mason is a member of the New Hampshire Bar Association, and a 2012 graduate of the University of New Hampshire School of Law with the Daniel Webster Honor's Scholar Program.
