Kenyon is a highly sought-after keynote speaker, group facilitator, writer, and researcher. Profoundly affected by the death of Amadou Diallo, Kenyon left his career as a classically trained stage actor in the early 2000s to begin working in social justice reform. After writing and publishing the essays “Is Gay Marriage Anti-Black” and “We Real Cool?: On Hip-Hop, Asian-Americans, Black Folks, and Appropriation” and co-editing the book Letters from Young Activists: Today’s Rebels Speak Out, he became internationally recognized as a talented voice with a unique perspective on race. 

Continuing his work as an activist, working with Queers for Economic Justice, National LGBTQ Task Force, Treatment Action Group, Critical Resistance, NYS Black Gay Network, and TheBody.com, Farrow has become much in demand as a organizer, strategist and facilitator/trainer. He is available for speaking and consulting opportunities and can be contacted at bookings@kenyonfarrow.com.
