Tiffany Paynter Bermuda May 2022 OUTBermuda has hired Tiffany Paynter as their first ever Executive Director.

A spokesperson said, “Bermuda’s LGBTQ+ advocacy nonprofit OUTBermuda has hired its first ever Executive Director as it looks to expand its impact and strengthen its sustainability as a resource.

“Bermudian Tiffany Paynter has taken up the Executive Director role as of May 23, 2022.

“A social entrepreneur and longtime advocate for the local LGBTQ+ community, Ms Paynter joins OUTBermuda following five years as Community Centre Manager for the Department of Youth, Sport and Recreation.

“Ms Paynter is also well-known island-wide as a yoga teacher, spoken-word poet, and volunteer for organisations including Spirithouse Bermuda and The Family Centre.

“As OUTBermuda’s first Executive Director, Ms Paynter will oversee the group’s growth and evolution, leading day-to-day operations and longer-term strategy, including increasing volunteer and education programmes to boost the community outreach part of its work. She’ll also be responsible for relationships with Government bodies and the business world.”

“I’m excited to join OUTBermuda at such an important time for LGBTQ+ equality,” said Ms Paynter. “I look forward to working closely with the board and with our local community to establish priorities and drive momentum toward our goals.”

Adrian Hartnett-Beasley, OUTBermuda’s chair, noted that Ms Paynter’s hiring represents a new chapter for the charity.

“We have such an opportunity to make a real impact, but couldn’t do so solely as a volunteer-led organisation,” he said. “We welcome Tiffany, and know she’s just the leader we need as we look to the future.”

A spokesperson said, “The appointment comes as OUTBermuda officially takes over supervision and management of Bermuda Pride, now in its fourth year. OUTBermuda was the first sponsor of the Bermuda Pride, which was founded by Liz Christopher, Chen Foley, and David Northcott.

“OUTBermuda is able to fund its Executive Director position for the next three years thanks to a recent grant. Earlier this year, the group announced the doubling of size of its board with four new appointments.”
