Cecilia Gentili currently serves as the Director of Policy at GMHC, the world’s first and leading provider of HIV/AIDS prevention, care and advocacy.

Cecilia is also a contributor to Trans Bodies, Trans Selves: A Resource for the Transgender Community, and is a board member for Transcend Legal and Translatina Network. For fun, she loves performing at storytelling and stand-up comedy events where she talks about her life experiences. Cecilia is very passionate about advocating for her community, especially Latina transgender women who may have a history of sex work, drug use and incarceration.
