Executive Director of Equality California & Silver State Equality

Tony Hoang is the Executive Director of Equality California and Silver State Equality and a veteran of the LGBTQ+ equality movement. Hoang has played a pivotal role in the passage of groundbreaking civil rights legislation in California, Nevada, and Washington, DC, implementation of statewide public education campaigns, and the election of hundreds of openly LGBTQ+ and pro-equality candidates up and down the ballot.

Hoang helped usher in a dramatic expansion of Equality California’s budget, staff, programming — especially the organization’s political work and efforts to advance racial justice — and growth to over 900,000 pro-equality members across the country.

Hoang serves the City of Los Angeles as a Commissioner on the Innovation and Performance Commission. He also sits on the boards of Equality Federation and DTLA Proud. He is a member of the Center for Asian Americans United For Self Empowerment (CAUSE) Leadership Network and the Pacific Council on International Policy and serves as a mentor for the USC Lambda LGBT Alumni Mentoring Program.
