She has done direct practice as a CPS social worker, worked with aging out youth developing their independent living skills and worked with undocumented youth towards obtaining a legal status in this country.

Kalani "Tracy" Quiocho

Director
Member 2011-2012

Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii in a little town called Ewa Beach. After graduating from James Campbell High School, Tracy worked in the Hawaii tourist industry, and made it his career for 15 years, he loved working with the tourists and promoting Hawaii, but it was not enough.

In 2002, Tracy decided to move to Las Vegas, to try something new and look for better opportunities, this was a very big move. After taking a year off, on March of 2003 Tracy was hired at NYNY Hotel and casino. Tracy had a great time, made many new friends and worked there for the next 7 years. Starting off as a guest room attendant for 2 years and then moving on to the role of house person, Tracy worked in the picking station, linen department and then was promoted to supervisor, it was quite an experience. Due to health reasons Tracy was forced to leave his employment.

Tracy then got involved with SNAPI during the reign of Miss Las Vegas PRIDE 2009 JewDi Vine. He joined the parade committee, helped make costumes, performed at benefit shows and soon joined the parade committee on PRIDE road trips. Tracy was then asked to take a seat on the Las Vegas PRIDE board and joined the volunteer committee. He was with Las Vegas PRIDE from that day on, through the royalty reign of 2010 (Diva DeLafuentes and Andy Dubois), 2011 (Diana Prince and KC Golightly) and 2012 (Keyska Diva and Freddie Mcgriff).

Tracy joined the board to make a difference. He wanted to help teach and do outreach for the younger generation, especially if they are HIV POSITIVE, as he was since 1994. He said that he was “not here to preach, and not so much teach… but to share my experiences and how they can come over any negatives; how to be yourself and still live a fabulous life.”
