Alfonso (Poncho) Murguia
Pronouns: He / Him / His
Alfonso (Poncho) is a passionate and proud Mexican immigrant who identifies as a gay man. He moved to Canada in 2013 and made Vancouver his new home to continue his personal and professional growth in the areas of Communication, Marketing and Sales. Prior to moving to Canada, he dedicated three years in France studying philosophy, theology and metaphysics so he may better understand why we are here, and how to influence our minds to create a better place for everyone.
Alfonso has always had a passion for helping and connecting with people and during his years in university as well as after graduating, he collaborated with different non-profit organizations that focused their efforts on the social and economical development of less fortunate communities in Mexico.
On his way to become a Canadian citizen, Poncho aims to share his personal touch and life’s experiences to support and bring more open and safe spaces to BC’s LGBTQ2S+ community as part of the QMUNITY team here in Vancouver.
