    Parker Lemal-Brown (pronouns: he/him) is a transmasculine writer, producer and narrative consultant. Parker was raised by a literal village in rural New York, where there were more cows than people. Parker graduated with honors from Bowdoin College and has worked as a writer and strategist everywhere from San Francisco to Senegal.



    An award-winning slam poet and playwright, Parker now writes for TV and short-form content. He has worked in creative development & production on projects for Netflix, Amazon, NBC Universal, and more. After working on the shows TRANSPARENT and BLUFF CITY LAW, Parker worked in the writers room on season 3 of BRIDGERTON on Netflix and recently wrote a musical episode on GREASE: RISE OF THE PINK LADIES on Paramount Plus.



    Parker is a passionate advocate for intersectional LGBTQIA+ representation and making Hollywood equal for everyone. He is a member of Time's Up 5050by2020 Transmasculine Cohort, the #PayUpHollywood movement, and Young Entertainment Activists (YEA!). He has spoken on international panels about the urgent need for more diverse stories in our divided world. Parker is also a strategist for Crewvie.com, a networking site dedicated to making production crews more inclusive across the globe.



    Parker is a seasoned script reader who has worked for The Black List, Roadmap Writers and Coverfly. With a background in Sociology and a deep love of story structure, Parker is perfect if you need fresh eyes on a project or want a writer's perspective on stories with trans, queer, and/or nonbinary characters.



    In addition to creative work, Parker also consults in multiple industries, contributing research and strategy proposals. He is a strategy consultant for Northwestern University, curating the inital research for Executive Education at Medill School of Journalism, Media, and IMC. As the Head of Marketing for Sumbon, a social enterprise based in San Francisco, Parker launched the first marketing campaigns for the company and evolved overall UX design. Parker was also a French-English translator for the Centre de Guidance Familial, a nonprofit based in Dakar, Senegal. He recently co-authored a chapter for the book Digital Governance on ESG maturity scales. Parker works with social entrepreneurs, think tanks, universities, and more to create narrative strategies and innovative impact.
