After appearing on Bravo’s reality TV series Summer House: Martha’s Vineyard, Mitchum has continued to amplify and advocate for the Black LGTBQ+ community in the press. Off camera, the lawyer-turned-reality star was the first openly LGBTQ chair of the Washington Bar Association Young Lawyers Division and was named one of the Best LGBTQ Lawyers Under 40 by the National LGBTQ+ Bar Association in 2020. Previously Mitchum served as the director of Federal Advocacy and Government Affairs at The Trevor Project, the world's largest suicide prevention and mental health organization for LGBTQ youth. Mitchum is using his new found fame to continue us his voice and visibility to represent us. See you on SH:VM Season 2. —G.E.
