Ken comes to True Colors United from Boston, Massachusetts with a background in youth development and food inequity. Ken developed their own interdisciplinary major at Hamilton College where they studied Transgender Studies in correlation with the Africana Studies, Women & Gender Studies and Sociology Departments.
