Kevin Allred is an author, speaker, educator, and musician who loves Beyoncé and believes knowledge should be accessible to everyone—not just gatekeepers of the Ivory Tower. He lives in Brooklyn with his boyfriend and (possibly demonic) senior chihuahua, Marshall.
Kevin's mission is to facilitate conversations that disrupt America's racist and heterosexist status quo, and to have fun doing it. He's an ex-Mormon from Logan UT, a punk rock indie folksinger, a diligent student of Black feminism, an outspoken outlaw of academia. He holds degrees from Utah State University, UMass Boston, Berklee College of Music, and Rutgers University.
Kevin is the author of Ain't I A Diva?: Beyoncé and the Power of Pop Culture Pedagogy (Feminist Press @ CUNY, 2019), and his writing has been featured all over the internet.
