The Board of Director and the SAVE are excited to announce that Todd Delmay will be joining SAVE as our new Executive Director.
Todd brings a distinguished history of LGBTQ+ advocacy to his new role. Notably, he and his husband played a pivotal part in the fight for marriage equality in Florida, as one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit as well as becoming the state's first legally wed same-sex couple in 2015. Their journey took them to the State of the Union address as guests of Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and to the White House for the historic signing of the Respect for Marriage Act in 2022.
Todd's commitment continued as he chaired the Board of Pridelines and fostered community ties. Last year, Delmay launched a campaign for Florida State Representative, becoming a prominent opponent of the Don't Say Gay law and using national platforms to raise awareness. As current Executive Director of The SMART Ride and President of the Dolphin Democrats, he remains dedicated to advancing pro-LGBTQ+ policies and candidates in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties regardless of political party.
We are thrilled to welcome Todd as Orlando's successor, knowing that his unwavering commitment and boots-on-the-ground approach will spearhead SAVE's impactful work in the coming years. His background embodies SAVE's mission of supporting the LGBTQ+ community through outreach, advocacy, and education. Orlando will continue to serve as Senior Advisor to the new Executive Director and Board of Directors through the end of 2023, ensuring a seamless transition as Todd takes the helm.
Please join the Board of Directors and the SAVE team in congratulating Todd and welcoming him aboard.
