In this week’s episode of the Gay City News podcast “Thank You For Coming Out,” creator and host Dubbs Weinblatt (they/ them) welcomes Kaden Mohamed (he/him).
Kaden is an activist and DEI enthusiast. Originally from NYC, Kaden moved to the Boston area in 2010 to attend Wellesley College where his experiences and exploration helped him understand and become comfortable with his own gender identity as part of the trans community and inspired him to get involved in social justice and activism. Kaden now works full-time at Positively Partners, a social enterprise committed to helping organizations do HR better. In his role as the Client and Community Impact Manager, he acts as a liaison between the organization, clients, and communities. Through a lens of intersectionality and equity, he helps to foster and strengthen authentic partnerships and relationships with clients and provides project management, content delivery, training, and facilitation support.
Kaden began his career working full-time at Keshet, a national organization that works for the full equality of all LGBTQ Jews and their families in Jewish life. He currently serves Board President for the Transgender Emergency Fund of MA and as general member for the Steering Committee of the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition after three years as Chair. Kaden has participated in numerous panels, has been interviewed about trans issues and rights by the New York Times, WBUR, the Rainbow Times, The Boston Sunday Review, and TBF News, and was featured in Spirit magazine’s 2017 Young Trailblazers list for activists under 30.
As queer people, we are constantly coming out, and each coming out story is unique in its blend of humor, heartache, worry, and wonder. “Thank You For Coming Out,” inspired by Dubbs’ beloved live comedy show of the same name, pairs them as host with lesbian, gay, trans, bi, non-binary, and more members of the queer community to discuss their coming out stories.
Listen in to our latest incredible journey into the LGBTQ communities’ vulnerable and often hilarious stories of coming out.
