Transgender Education Advocates TEA of Utah announced that Candice Metzler will be the first out transgender person in a paid executive director position for a Utah non-profit organization.
“The transgender community performs advocacy in the form of free labor in most of its efforts. Today we start to change that with TEA of Utah’s first paid executive director, whose presence will assist in making our voices more prevalent,” said Sue Robbins, 2019 board chair. “The board of directors recognizes this incredible milestone and will build upon this in growing TEA of Utah as a key voice in the Utah transgender community.”
Metzler holds a Master’s degree in Social Work and is a doctoral candidate at the University of Utah.
