About the Author

Skye Brown attended Texas A&M University between 2007 and 2012 during which time they experienced the resiliency of marginalized communities surrounded by oppression and violence. During their enrollment at one of the most homophobic and transphobic institutions in the U.S., Skye engaged with the LGBTQ+ community, undocumented students, and students of color in community organizing, community engagement, violence intervention, leadership development, and marches and direct action against legislative and systematic oppression. Shortly after graduating and moving to Indiana, Skye became the volunteer Program Coordinator for Trans Lafayette, a support and anti-oppression group which serves trans people and their allies across Indiana. Skye now works as the LGBTQ Outreach Coordinator for the Multicultural Efforts to end Sexual Assault to prevent interpersonal violence against and within LGBTQ+ communities in Indiana.

As the LGBTQ Outreach Coordinator, Skye works with LGBTQ+ individuals, LGBTQ+ community organizations, and service providers to create cultural and structural changes to prevent violence using Pedagogy and Theater of the Oppressed and other popular education techniques.
