This year, luncheon attendees will enjoy a special panel discussion featuring esteemed guests: Senator Marko Liias (D-Edmonds), Senator Jamie Pedersen (D-Seattle), and Senator Claire Wilson (D-Auburn). During the panel, we'll explore Washington's educational landscape for LGBTQ+ students, recent legislation, and future educational priorities.

GSBA is also excited to welcome a special guest speaker: 

Hector Ivan Godoy Priske, Head Consul of the Mexican Consulate in Seattle since 2019, is a dedicated advocate for Mexican economic and political interests. With a Master’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Humanities, specializing in North America, he has led efforts to modernize Mexican drug policy and promote North American economic integration.

As an active member of LGBTQ+ rights, Godoy Priske actively promotes inclusivity and representation in all endeavors. In his role, he prioritizes fostering investment in Mexico, protecting Mexican rights, and enhancing political and civil interaction in the Pacific Northwest.
