Edward Kaufman has spent his entire professional life working with youth and supporting them to succeed.

Even more importantly, he is proud to be a Big Brother for his Little Brother Malik who is turning 10 in January.

His joy in teaching the course Gay Male Relationships comes from the opportunity to help gay and bisexual men develop and sustain meaningful intimate relationships.
