Today we’d like to introduce you to Dominic Green.
Hi Dominic, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I have always been interested in creating content since I was very little. I was inspired by creators to create, and I began when I felt most comfortable. Once I was around 15, 16, maybe? I would post every day, multiple times a day, documenting my journey and sharing my experience as a transgender person. When I could, I was connecting with other transgender creators on and offline, becoming really good friends and till this day keep in contact with some of them. I grew a really good base, I noticed I began to make a difference in people’s lives and it only made me want to continue to push positive energy out into the world through creating content.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It was in the beginning, then I got sucked into the toxicity of social media. I began to get into drama with other creators who had much bigger followings on many different platforms, and it caused a lot of backlash on my side. I began to be afraid to share my opinion and my experience, even when I know it’s valid simply because I was attacked for it. I stopped posting and sharing for a long time, and about two years ago, I learned that I couldn’t continue to do that to myself because I was just giving up on my goals. I began to get into marketing and advertising, and I learned a lot about how to manage my relationships with brands, and I even helped others do the same!
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
Today, not only do I still create content but I’m also the Account Manager for the world’s largest LGBTQ+ talent agency and the only one run by the LGBTQ+ for the LGBTQ+, Gaybors Agency. Brands need to recognize the importance of diversity and inclusivity. My job is to reach out to brands and after a couple of emails, a zoom meeting, or 2, we’re building powerful campaigns with large brands using LGBTQ+ creators. Some brands are afraid to reach out and overstep or offend, but I’m telling you now, don’t be, we’re friendly here. Fenty Skin, for example, took months to respond back to me but when they did it was heartwarming. The team mentioned their fear of how to approach, then they wanted to know how and what they can do to bring visibility to TDOV this year and it was super last minute! My team and I develop, pitch, cast, and produce authentic and engaging content for all types of companies. We have partnered with tons of brands, like Nike, HP, Fenty X Savage, Uber, and more! I also reach out to new talent to bring to our agency’s network of creators. I still create content from time to time, but my focus is on making sure that my community is receiving just as much of a chance and the same respect as everyone else in the industry. I’m most proud of finding a place where I can still follow my passions and help others follow theirs and the people I’m connecting with along the way.
