Dustyn Baulkham he/him
Head Unicorn
Founder and Executive Producer

Dustyn is passionate about creating more inclusive and welcoming communities. Part of one of the first waves of graduates from UBC Okanagan and the Bachelor of Management program, Dustyn spent 10 years in the finance industry, most notably in Vancouver and London, Ontario, before taking the plunge and launching his own consulting company. It was a smart move. In the past five years, having returned to beautiful Kelowna, Dustyn has served as the Workforce Development Officer with the Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission (2-year contract), served as the Executive Director of the Arts Council of the Central Okanagan (2 years), and is currently the General Manager with the Kelowna Pride Society (year 3). This led to him being selected as the Canadian LGBT Young Entrepreneur from the Canadian LGBT Chamber of Commerce in summer 2020.

Upon returning to the Okanagan, and with his desire to see a more equitable and inclusive society undiminished, Dustyn realized the growing need for events and experiences specifically for the LGBT2Q+ community and their allies. His newest entrepreneurial endeavour is Rebellious Unicorns Production Company Inc.
