Michael Brown is a transman living in Phoenix, Arizona. Michael realized the need for more localized support systems in the trans community, and acted upon it with founding TransMentors International, Inc. a non-profit organization that provides individual support with mentoring, resources, emergency assistance, safe housing, clothing, transitional supplies, and more. He and his wife opened their home as Trans Safe House and Transitional Living Home at the same time for the homeless and victims of abuse within the community, and continues to provide this safe haven to all in need.
Michael is proactive in facilitating weekly groups and social events for his local community, as well as focusing on the individual needs of the community and networking around the world through online and offline support. He was also successful in creating large, multi-day trans-educational events, and continues to present workshops, and speaking engagements on trans issues and lives for educators, social service agencies, and various trans-related events and conferences.
