Thomas G. McIntosh is involved in the LGBTQ community in the Cincinnati area. Tom is a founding member of PrideCats – the University of Kentucky’s LGBTQ Alumni Group founded in 2016 and officially recognized by the University in 2017. The purpose of the group is to connect LGBTQ alumni for networking and social purposes, bring LGBTQ visibility to the UK campus, for students and alumni alike, and promote history of the LGBTQ communities at UK.
In addition, Tom is president of Cincinnati Alternative Volleyball Association (“CAVA”), which promotes and runs volleyball leagues year-round (both sand and hard court) for the LGBTQ community (and its allies!) in Cincinnati. CAVA also organizes skill clinics and happy hours to raise funds for LGBTQ agencies in the Cincinnati area. CAVA gives the LGBTQ community a fun and social way to meet people, exercise, and give back.
