His work with Game Changing Men focuses on erasing stigmas and barriers for the progression of black (transmasculine) men in society by addressing toxic masculinities and promoting health to end violence and ensure the safety and wellness for communities of color through story-sharing, practicing collective care, group activities for bonding, and providing tools and resources to strengthen marginalized communities.
Mr. Reynolds is a student at Clayton State University where he is a business major with a concentration in Identity, Race, Gender, and Culture economic strategies. His focus and vision for Game Changing Men is to center the healing and progression in black men in society by building intentional bonds and partnerships that continue to challenge cultural norms and provide resources and tools to bridge gaps in service agencies and communities.
In his daily life Mr. Reynolds uses his platform to address issues such as trans-competence for incarcerated individuals, sexual health and inclusiveness, while using a holistic and harm-reductive approach to ending violence, toxic masculinity in communities, and topics that focus on issues and barriers that hinder the growth and development of the transgender and non-binary community. Mr. Reynolds’ passion for his community has led him to become a public educator, advocate, volunteer, and an intentional advocate for Black Trans Women and folk where he has sat on panels at national conferences for topics like HIV prevention, Civic engagement, and Restorative Justice. Mr. Reynolds currently sits on the board of directors for the Trans Women of Color Healing Project in Newnan, Georgia where his goal is to help combat the erasure of the lives, existence, and narratives of Trans women of Color communities and their contributions to society.
As an African American man of trans experience, Mr. Reynolds advocates for the affirming care and inclusiveness for the TGNC community with a special focus on AFAB individuals and BIPOC. Mr. Reynolds’ mantra is “If you Fail to Plan, you’re Planning to Fail.”
