Mr. Nicholson has a passion for exploration, travel and experiencing new cultures. As an out gay man he has used financial, place and privilege to advocate for gay rights throughout the world. He is also understanding that while he can support & push for change it must be driven locally by those who know the local culture and the best ways to reach sexual minorities. It is with this idea in mind that he supports LebMASH as it is internationally funded but the core of its management and mission is local to Lebanon and the Middle East. Outside of travel Jon is an avid distance runner, foodie and loves the outdoors and wide open spaces.
