As the first Vietnamese president of San Francisco Pride, Nguyen Pham works to uplift, center, and protect marginalized queer lives. Prior to his election as President, he served as Vice President of the organization for one year and as Board Secretary for five. In 2019, he helped to produce the inaugural SF Pride Golf Tournament, a groundbreaking event ensuring queer visibility in one of the most cis-heteronormative spaces in the world – as well as SF Pride’s most lucrative member-led annual fundraiser to date. He continued that tradition with the tournament's fourth annual return in 2022, which was a resounding success.
He is also Director of Philanthropy at Frameline, the world’s first and largest LGBTQ+ media arts organization aimed at changing the world through the power of cinema, and performs with CHEER San Francisco, an all-volunteer nonprofit stunt and acrobatics group that raises charitable funds globally for community members facing life-challenging conditions.
As the first openly-LGBTQ+ member of the Mensa Foundation Board of Trustees, he has established the Progress Pride Scholarship and the Progress Pride Fund to support marginalized BIPOC and LGBTQ individuals. He is the recipient of multiple pageant titles, including Mr. Gay San Francisco 2015. Adding to his already impressive resume and philanthropic endeavors, Nguyen produces and emcees national events to raise charitable funds for numerous nonprofits.
