Gabriel Maldonado

The Founder and CEO of TruEvolution, Gabriel Maldonado has led the organization's efforts for the past eleven years, introducing new community services such as: comprehensive HIV prevention and care services, a mental health clinic, and emergency supportive housing. A former member of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS under President Obama, Gabriel advocates to elevate the representation of minority community-based organizations in state and federal policy priorities. Complimenting his work at TruEvolution, Gabriel continues his advocacy and thought-leadership serving on regional boards, such as Borrego Community Health Foundation –– the 5th largest qualified health foundation in the U.S. –– and global organizations such as the AIDS Healthcare Foundation. Gabriel works to advise industry leaders as an advisory board member for ViiV Healthcare, Janssen Therapeutics, and Merck & Co. –– engaging advocacy at multiple levels.

Gabriel believes that the needs and priorities of marginalized populations should be heard in every room and every table impacting those communities. Gabriel is passionately driven by his past experiences –– witnessing the devastating impacts of the industrialization of poor urban communities. Raised in the city of Compton, Gabriel watched not only his health but the health of his family and neighborhood be negatively impacted by the corrosive effects of refineries, smog, logistics, and chemical facilities. Now as a person living with HIV, Gabriel is firmly-rooted in advancing the quality of life and human dignity of people of color in the LGBTQ experience.
