For three years, Raymond led LGBT marketing and partnerships for YouTube, a role that he originated and that landed him on the Forbes “30 Under 30” list, iMedia top 25 Marketing Leaders and Innovators, and Men’s Health “Gay Celebrities Roundtable.” In September 2015, he left his role at YouTube to start his own company focused on LGBT marketing and community engagement.
In the summer of 2013, Raymond spearheaded YouTube’s first ever marketing campaign dedicated to celebrating the LGBT community: #ProudToLove. The international, award-winning campaign became the blueprint for all of YouTube’s LGBT marketing efforts. Raymond served as YouTube’s LGBT Ambassador and spokesman, regularly making media appearances and hosting LGBT influencers at Google events. During Raymond’s tenure at YouTube, YouGov’s BrandIndex listed YouTube as one of the top 5 best perceived brands by the LGBT community and YouTube received GLAAD’s Ric Weiland Award, which honors innovators who advance LGBT equality through tech and new media.
During the summer of 2015, Raymond took a sabbatical from YouTube to focus on launching a YouTube channel focused on LGBT youth: youtube.com/raymondbraun. In addition to working with the Human Rights Campaign on the ground in Ireland during the marriage equality vote, Raymond was also outside the Supreme Court when the marriage equality decision came down in the US in June 2015.
Raymond has been instrumental in helping various YouTubers and celebrities come out on social media. He is a consultant for a variety of LGBT non-profit organizations around the world, helping them more effectively engage millennials through YouTube and social media.
Raymond has spoken at conferences and events around the world. He has been featured in CNN, Entrepreneur, Forbes, Seventeen, Variety, and AdWeek.
Raymond graduated cum laude from Stanford University with a M.A. in Media Studies and a B.A. in Science, Technology, and Society.
