Bruce Parker, Ph.D., proudly serves as Deputy Director of Rocky Mountain Equality. A committed advocate and community organizer, he has been fighting for full equality and justice for LGBTQ+ people for more than 20 years. He has held various volunteer and professional roles in diverse settings including higher education, local and statewide community organizations, a gubernatorial campaign, and state government. Most recently, he served as Director of Community Programs in the Office of Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards.

Parker holds a Ph.D. in Curriculum Theory from Louisiana State University. He received his bachelor’s degree in Cultural and Interdisciplinary Studies from Antioch College, where he committed to live by the school motto of “Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity.” His educational background informs his intersectional and reflective approach to advocacy and community organizing.

In his free time, Parker is a dedicated reader, writer, and gaymer – both tabletop and video games. He is also the proud uncle of a 6-year-old who already shows signs of being a gifted community organizer and troublemaker.
