Jazz Desmond (ze/zem/they/them) is a transgender, multidisciplinary artist hailing from Brooklyn, NY with a deep love of community service. Born to Guyanese and Trini-Venezuelan parents, Jazz has always been a flamboyant student of musical theatre, and cabaret performance and classical voice. Their upbringing in Youth Ministry guides their activist work which has included their PB&J Saturday, working with youth and Mutual Aid for Black and Brown transgender people. They look forward to continuing that work as a COVID Organizing Fellow, serving and supporting Long Beach.
