Class of '17 Alum Jake Hofheimer Recognized for Trailblazing Activism

Class of 2017 alum Jake Hofheimer continues to inspire and gain recognition for his LGBTQ+ activism. Jake was recently honored with the JQ International Trailblazer Award, becoming the first trans person and first teen to win the award. This summer, Jake is volunteering at Camp Aranu’tiq, a summer camp for transgender and gender-variant/gender-nonconforming youth. “It’s a place where I wasn’t ‘that trans kid’ anymore. I was just a kid,” Jake says. “And that feeling — the best way to describe it is freeing.”
