When he came out as a queer, trans man four years ago, he shifted his focus to the health of LGBTQ+ populations. Before working at the Trevor Project, they were faculty at JHSPH, where he co-taught courses on LGBTQ health and gender and health, and is dedicated to improving the lives of transgender and nonbinary people. Will is also a gestational parent/dad to a young adult, and lives with his husband in Maryland.
