NBC Out #Pride30
CHARITABLE DESIGNER: The high schooler is "upcycling" used clothing items, turning them into fashionable pieces and donating them to underprivileged youth in Los Angeles.
PRIDE MEANS: "Being comfortable in your own skin and not being afraid of being who you are, because every single person is different and everyone should feel accepted and feel confident with who they are, and not be afraid to express themselves."
VETERAN ADVOCATE: After being honorably discharged from the military, Fulton dedicated her life to advocating for marginalized people.
TESTIMONIAL: Sue Fulton was nominated for NBC Out's #Pride30 list by U.S. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, who said "Sue is a great American and has been a trailblazer in so many ways. Sue was one of the first women to graduate from the United States Military Academy at West Point ... and she was instrumental in the fight to end the discriminatory policy of 'don't ask, don't tell.'"
About NBC Out’s #Pride30 List
The majority of NBC Out's #Pride30 innovators, change makers and rising stars were nominated by the public. We received more than 1,600 nominations in April, and a committee of NBC journalists and executives narrowed down the list. A smaller number of our honorees, as noted in each of their profiles, were nominated directly by LGBTQ community leaders and celebrities.
