Josh Kinchen (he/him/his) 

Josh is the Associate Director for LGBTQ Resources at GMU. He previously worked at Florida State University as a Student Program Coordinator, working directly with the Allies & Safe Zones program and the Pride Student Union. During his time there, he also served as the Staff Co-Chair of the LGBTQ+ Faculty/Staff Network. He graduated twice from the University of North Carolina Wilmington with a M.Ed. in Higher Education and B.A. in Communication Studies. A proud first-generation college graduate, he also holds an Associate’s degree from Cape Fear Community College. While he was a UNCW Seahawk, he worked in the LGBTQIA Resource Office, serving in multiple roles from an undergraduate intern to a Graduate Assistant.

Prior to his career in higher education, Josh served in the United States Marine Corps. Due to this experience, his Master’s thesis was focused on the experiences of LGB military veterans in their undergraduate college experience. This research was recently published in the Journal of Veterans Studies, to help inform the intersections of support for LGBTQ students, military veterans, and LGBTQ military veterans on college campuses.

Josh originally hails from Slidell, LA, a suburb of New Orleans, but also considers the Port City of Wilmington, NC as a second hometown. Josh is an avid comic collector of nearly 25 years! He enjoys spending time with his partner Denise and their two cats Dingy and Monkey! They usually can be found in the best brunch spots in town or watching the newest Netflix show!
