Brandon Sargent is a non-binary writer, actor, producer, and graduate of Marymount Manhattan College. Growing up in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan, Brandon was raised by a liberal, lesbian mother and a conservative, Catholic father which ultimately led to a well-rounded understanding of the political spectrum, and it continues to fuel every story he tells. His writing is featured in Narratively, The Rumpus, Vol. 1 Brooklyn, and The Marymount Manhattan Review.
Through the lens of both writing and acting, Brandon has become too familiar with the lack of representation of the queer community in media and literature. His project, Hard Feelings, is an eight-episode, queer web series which he wrote, directed, and starred in. Because of the aforementioned lack of representation, he made it a rule during casting that each character would be played by an actor who identified the same way, and he was able to give 25 queer people jobs both behind and on camera.
He is currently working on a coming-of-age novel about friendship, gender identity, and politics.
