Iden is a native New Yorker by way of DC transplant who now calls Portland home. Iden has been an activist for most of his career first as an advocate for those with Intellectual/Developmental disabilities and then moving to suicide prevention and mental health activism. Iden decided to speak out against transgender violence in 2011 when his intern LaShay McClean was murdered in Washington, DC.  Iden knew that he could no longer live under the radar as a Black transgender man and not speak out against the violence surrounding Black trans women. With that passion Iden became a national speaker around social justice for transgender people in general ensuring that the healthcare needs of trans people were heard at the myriad of tables. Iden enjoys collecting comic books, comic con, college sports, camping, sailing, and power boating.  (Pronouns: Iden/he/him/they/them)
