Jake Hitch (he/him/his)
Director of Communication, Board of Directors
Hello everyone! My name is Jake Hitch, and although I was born and raised in Northern Kentucky, I have been a resident of Ohio since 2014, as a resident of downtown Cincinnati! A graduate of Campbell County High School, I attended Northern Kentucky University and graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Musical Theatre, with a Dance Minor. During my time at NKU, I was involved with a local LGBTQIA+ organization, NKY Equality Now, and volunteered with another organization called STOP AIDS CINCINNATI. Upon graduation, I spent some time residing in all different parts of the United States as a singer/dancer. I returned to Cincinnati at the end of 2013 and turned my part-time barista gig into a full-time career by pursuing a management career. I have served as a Communications Lead for my company's national internal Pride Network, supporting all of Middle-America, for the last two years.
I am a cat dad of three beautiful, chubby boys- Felicia, Tina Marie, and Mark. In my spare time, I enjoy lifting weights, eating carbs, and watching endless reruns of Friends and Will and Grace. I also am down to watch any sort of true-crime TV.
I am overjoyed to be a part of Cincinnati Pride's Board of Directors, and I can't wait for everyone to see what is up our sleeves!
