Bethany M. Allen is the Director of Statewide Initiatives for the Boston Alliance of GLBT Youth (BAGLY), one of the nation’s oldest and largest LGBTQ youth organizations, and co-chair of the Board of Directors for the Hispanic Black Gay Coalition (HBGC). Her work focuses on creating opportunities for radical, deep connections within and across communities to promote transformational social change rooted in racial justice. She raised three queer black children (who are now young adults) while attending Harvard, an experience she often wrote about in a biweekly column for Africana.com from 2000-2005, Brown Eyed Girl. She is currently working on a memoir and her second screenplay.
