Jardyn Lake, aka Sweetboi, is a black/queer cultural activist, youth worker, and artist from Jacksonville, Florida. Jardyn became a SONG member after being affirmed, baptized and radicalized in the holy waters of radical Southern youth organizing and leadership at the Highlander Center in 2005. A firm believer in youth power and voice, Jardyn brings over seven years of queer youth organizing and HIV/AIDS advocacy to the Board. A graduate of Temple University [B.A. African-American Studies] and University of London’s SOAS [M.A. African Studies], Jardyn is interested in creating a queer Black and African transnational dialogue and cultural-historical exchange between artists, activists, scholars, visionaries, and the like. Jardyn is an avid sweet tea drinker, lover of all things dapper and dandy, and a world traveler.
