Sam Bowling (she/her/hers)
Member At Large, Board of Directors
Sam is a Cincinnati native, and likes to believe she is Cincinnati's biggest fan. She has lived all over the city, but settled with her wife and her cats in Norwood in 2020. She has a background in people management and is currently the Front of House Manager at Northwood Cider Company, Cincinnati's first ever Cidery.
Sam also runs the @cincyfaves page on TikTok, where she features local things to do and places to see! Growing up in an inclusive environment and surrounded by people from all walks of life, Sam felt privileged to be supported by those in her life in her identity and personal expression- and has made it her mission to help other LGBTQIA+ people feel the same. She has been involved with Cincinnati pride as a volunteer and a committee member since 2017, and is very proud to be in her second year as a member of the Board of Directors.
She is excited to put her background of working with queer youth into practice and hopes to help make a lasting impact on the local community. We deserve to be welcome, safe, and supported- and the work to make that the reality happens every single day.
