Eddie Reynoso

by on September 29, 2017

Eddie Reynoso is originally from Winnemucca, Nevada, a small mining, and ranching community two hours north of Reno/Tahoe.  He studied business management and marketing at Truckee Meadows Community College before embarking on an entrepreneurial journey into the restaurant and tourism industry.

In 2010 he left Reno/Tahoe and moved to San Diego where he joined Hale Media as the Social Media manager for San Diego Gay & Lesbian News, and San Diego Pix Magazine. He later joined the MO’s Universe restaurant and nightlife group as Marketing & Public Relations Director.  And in 2015 he went on to launch the San Diego LGBT Visitors Center and today serves as co-chair of the San Diego & Tijuana Visitors Center Network- a coalition of 12 visitors centers throughout San Diego and Baja California.

Eddie has been a long time volunteer for the Hillcrest Business Association- giving his time and talent since 2011. He now serves as the Marketing + Member Services Director.

Passionate about LGBT civil rights and LGBT history, Eddie has been actively engaged in the march towards LGBT equality since San Francisco’s “Sumer of Love.”  His activism has earned him local and national recognition. He designed a version of the rainbow and US flag known at the US Marriage Equality Flag, which today is now sold around the world. In 2017 he founded the Rainbow Key To The City Awards, which honors LGBT individuals and allies who have made significant social, civic and economic impact on the LGBT community in San Diego- those awards have helped bring international attention to San Diego’s LGBT community.

Eddie was recently appointed to Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s LGBT Advisory Council and is currently working to create the San Diego LGBT Legacy Walk- a historic heritage walk commemorating the history of the LGBT community through permanent interactive placemaking signs which will be placed along the sidewalks of Hillcrest. In his free time, Eddie enjoys exploring San Diego’s neighborhoods, local art, trying new restaurants, craft cocktails, and spending time at the beach. He also loves spoiling Cookie- a former-homeless Hillcrest neighborhood dog- whom he fostered and adopted on Valentines Day of 2017.
