What makes you a great Bud Boy? I was one of last year's BudBoyz and I was very proud to represent the LGBT community at every event; be it gay or straight. Many times I was able to bridge that gap between the straight and gay communities. I am a strong believer that we are making a difference by standing up for what we believe. Keep it up everyone!

What makes you a great Bud Boy? I think I'm an anomaly within the Chicago gay community. Yes I go to all the big parties and dance at as many circuit parties as humanly possible, but I believe my draw is that I'm a very genuine, laid back, drama free person. I'm very loyal and supportive of my friends and community and try to be as open and nonjudgmental as possible.

I believe I will do the best job representing the community because I enjoy meeting and talking to new people, getting people energized and excited for a common cause, and being present and attentive in every situation. I am a Chemical and Biological Engineering student at Illinois Tech representing all of my science & math community members. I was president of our LGBTQ group on campus as well as vice president of my fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon (SigEp). I also dance and dive for the university, I love long walks in the sand and doing handstands in the grass. Lets have some fun!
What makes you a great Bud Boy? I would be a good Bud Boyz finalist because I would be a good role model to my family and friends.

What makes you a great Bud Boy? My Name is Garrett Smith; however, most know me as MobileDisco. I’m a Southern California transplant who ventured out of the warm sunshine after graduation to pursue a chemistry career in the Windy City. Despite the frozen winters Chicago has become my home.
