community organizing and community development
Doctoral candidate Brendon T. Holloway (he/they) uses community-engaged, participatory methods to examine the health care needs and desires for trans and nonbinary communities. Brendon’s scholarship centers the health and wellbeing of trans and nonbinary individuals with specific focuses on health care access, mutual aid, health liberation, and gender euphoria. His research is informed by his lived experience as a queer and trans person, and their six years of practice experience in health care settings. Brendon’s research seeks to disrupt conventional deficit-based narrative of trans and nonbinary people, painting a more holistic picture of who trans and nonbinary individuals are. Brendon received their BSW from Middle Tennessee State University and his MSW from the University of Michigan.
