Benjamin Greennagel joined Family Equality in February 2023 as a Social Media Intern. Benjamin is a recent graduate of the Savannah College of Art & Design and is now pursuing his Master of Studies in Creative Writing at the University of Oxford. Last year, he served as a VSFS intern with the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion, where he helped launch the Facing Diplomacy campaign by utilizing online platforms like Twitter and StoryCorps to collect stories of courage from American diplomats.
In his own work, Benjamin seeks to explore topics regarding queer theory and the experiences of gender-expansive people. Powerful immersive storytelling can evoke empathy, and Benjamin aims to use his writing in this way while encouraging young people to think critically about the world. As a multimedia creative, he is especially excited by projects that allow him to apply his experience in sound design and video production to connect with a broader audience.
Outside of his regular work, Benjamin can be found drinking too much coffee and scouring JSTOR for articles on art history.
