About Zakary

Zakary is an openly gay candidate and is a champion for LGBTQ+ rights and women’s rights. He is a progressive Democrat who lives in the Riverview neighborhood of Warwick with his partner Aaron. He believes it is important that LGBTQ+ people get involved in the political process, especially in the current climate of anti-trans bills and #DontSayGay legislation.

Zakary grew up the youngest of four in a middle-class family, the son of an immigrant grocery store worker and a public-school teacher. Throughout his upbringing, he learned what it means to work hard and fight against a system rigged against working people. When elected, Zakary is looking forward to passing legislation that protects the LGBTQIA community against discrimination and working to address bread-and-butter issues affecting our community like a living wage, affordable housing, and healthcare. The RI Queer PAC supports Zakary in his efforts to bring true representation for queer Rhode Islanders to the General Assembly.
