Darren Paul-Vance (he/him/his)

Executive Director

Darren joined Rainbow Families as Executive Director in 2018. He, his husband John, and their teen-age son have been members for several years and have always felt great passion for the Rainbow Families community work, mission & vaues.

He brings over 25 years’ corporate travel management background, including serving as Travel Services Manager at DreamWorks studios, helping run travel operations at Warner Bros, Universal Studios, as well as other roles managing above-the-line services and logistics for film, television and music industries

Darren previously served as a Board Member and Development Director of the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles. He was also Speakers Bureau Director for Love Is Feeding Everyone, and he worked extensively with Project Angel Food – both in Los Angeles

Particularly with today’s political climate with threats to the LGBTQ+ community, Darren is keenly committed to this organization and the value it offers our members through empowerment, education, support, and togetherness. Perhaps now more than ever.
