Valerie Branch is a Certified Massage Therapist. A performer at heart, I grew up ice skating and dancing ballet, before performing standup comedy in San Francisco. I produced, hosted and performed in comedy shows at San Francisco LGBT venues including, Deco Lounge, OMG and the Lookout. My time performing with the queer and drag communities brought me joy, inspiration, friendship and support. I am committed to fostering the open hearted, accepting and compassionate spirit that was shown to me here in S.F. I’m proud to participate in this fundraiser. If I can help children to thrive in a culturally diverse, inclusive & equitable learning environment, where they know that they are valued as they are, for who they are, and whomever they may discover themselves to be.
