Out50: Carson Graham

Carson Graham

Carson Graham was born April 11, 1993 in Pembroke Pines. By age 2, he knew there was something different about him.  When he was 19, he came out to his mother who threw him out of his home. His father was Jamaican and had died a few years earlier; he was surprised that his Jamaican family members were more supportive than his mother.

Graham attended Florida Technical College, studying information technology. He develops websites and is enthusiastic about graphic design and development. 

When he came out, Graham was surprised at how little support was available for trans people so he and his partner, Tatianna Braxton, co-founded the Transinclusive Group in 2016. 

According to Graham, “Transinclusive Group is a grassroots organization that advocates for equality and services for the LGBT community.”

Asked who his heroes are he immediately responded with Bishop S.F. Makalani-Ma Hee (died 2017) and Marsha P. Johnson (died 1992), both of whom were outspoken advocates for human rights and civil equality for LGBT people.

Graham expressed gratitude to SFGN for past coverage of the group and especially its annual Transinclusive Prom.
