Board of Directors

The Ogden Pride Board of Directors is committed to making sure the organization serves the needs of the LGBTQ* community of Northern Utah. 

Meet our Board of Directors:

Sean Childers-Gray | He/Him/His

Sean is a husband, father, educator, student, graphic designer, advocate, and transgender man. He’s been involved in charity work since he was 19.

He took his case, along with Angie Rice, to the Utah Supreme Court after being denied a gender-marker change. In May 2021, the Utah Supreme Court ruled in their favor, making gender marker requests easier and equitable for all transgender Utahns.

“This is a victory along a journey that we all take together. So, to the next mountain, let’s make it a molehill. “

Jamie Keyes Lewis | She/Her/Hers
Vice President

Sara Childers-Gray | She/They

Sara is a zombie-loving mother of two. When she isn’t preparing for the zombie apocalypse with her amazing transgender husband (and family), she is volunteering with the Imperial Rainbow Court of Northern Utah (IRCONU) and Ogden Pride (of course).

They love horror movies and pretty much anything horror related. Sara is also an avid prepper with a basement full of gear and tries to be ready for anything that may come along. With a degree in forensic accounting and public relations, Sara is well rounded and ready for any challenge.

Karyn Johnston | She/Her/Hers

Karyn is a teacher and photographer in Ogden. She is a mom to two (almost-grown) children, a cis-daughter and a trans-son. Karyn loves being a part of Ogden Pride and having the opportunity to be an active ally and help provide support and community to LGBTQ+ youth and their families.
