As the Senior Director of Communications for SAGE, Christina DaCosta’s mission is to bring the voices of LGBTQ+ elders from the margin to the mainstream.
DaCosta is responsible for all of SAGE’s media work, including web content, social media properties, and earned media. In the past year, she has positioned SAGE in the New York Times, Washington Post, NBC News, Associated Press, NPR, and more.
A SAGE staffer since 2008, Christina’s longevity puts her in a unique position of retaining a rich institutional memory and her media savvy allows her to work towards SAGE’s vision for the future of LGBTQ+ people in exciting and innovative ways.
DaCosta earned her Bachelor’s of Arts from New York University, graduating summa cum laude with a major in Political Science and a minor in Philosophy. A former Brooklynite, she now lives in the Hudson Valley with her husband, rescue dog, and toddler. She enjoys exploring the area, cooking with local produce, and renovating their 1910 stone home.
