The Ogden Pride Board of Directors is committed to ensuring 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. “
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.

Jacy Morgan-Barnum | She/Her/Hers
Jacy is a mother of two, wife, special educator, Mama Dragon, and Eiffel Tower loving middle-aged woman who resides in Ogden. Jacy was raised in Colorado and Wyoming, attending the University of Wyoming and playing piccolo in the Western Thunder Marching Band. It was at UW that she met her first out trans person before, during and after their transition. Little did Jacy know that this friendship would lay the foundation for her own child’s transition a decade and a half later.
When Jacy’s son was 13, he came out as transgender. Jacy attended PFLAG and joined the Mama Dragons. The education and support she found allowed her to help her son flourish and become an amazing young adult! The two of them joined the board of directors (and youth board) for Ogden Pride in 2015.
In her spare time (haha…..what’s that?) Jacy enjoys spending time with her family, Broadway musicals, traveling, binge watching TV, reading, sewing and crafting. She also loves snuggling with her family’s two dogs and three cats.

Olivia is a graduate from Weber State University with a degree in Social Work. She has worked with international students and students with disabilities. She believes in creating accessibility for all and making sure that everyone feels like they are in a safe place.
