About the author

Dr. Philip McAdoo is an educator, LGBTQ activist and former actor, Broadway performer, and singer.  He appeared in the Broadway productions of The Lion King and Rent, appeared in readings of The Book of Mormon and Wicked, and worked in television and film. He was featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show honoring Sidney Poitier for his work with inner city youth and mentor initiatives. He is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in communications studies, holds an MA in transformative leadership from The California Institute of Integral Studies, and is a doctoral candidate at The University of Pennsylvania in the Graduate School of Education.

As a LGBTQ activist, Philip was invited to join politician and civil rights activist Rep. John Lewis speaking in support of the Every Child Deserves a Family Act to introduce legislation to Congress that would lower some of the barriers faced by same-sex couples who want to adopt children from foster care. Philip and his family have been featured in The Huffington Post, ABC News, and on the cover of magazines and articles advocating for the rights of LGBTQ individuals and families.

As an educator, Philip has also worked closely with diversity leaders such as New York Times bestselling author Stedman Graham on diversity initiatives to empower young people in independent schools. As Director of Diversity, he has launched a diversity speaker series, coordinated global education trips, and advocated for access to education for diverse groups of students. He has created comprehensive academic and summer programs for black and Hispanic youth and fostered community and parent relationships for diversity in independent schools. 

Philip’s unique approach to arts in education has created successful programs featuring Tony Award-winning actress and star of Disney’s Frozen Idina Menzel, Tony/Grammy Award-winning artist Heather Headley, and Emmy/Golden Globe-nominated actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson of ABC’s Modern Family.

“Philip McAdoo’s diversity leadership was impressive to witness. I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of this much-needed dialogue around LGBTQ issues and diversity.” –Jesse Tyler Ferguson

An openly gay educator, Philip has worked tirelessly to combat homophobia in his personal and professional life by fiercely advocating not only for himself and his family, but for the rights of LGBT youth, families, and educators as well. He is a Doctoral Candidate at The University of Pennsylvania completing his dissertation titled, Out and Visible: A Study of Openly Gay and Lesbian Teachers in Independent Schools. He hopes to use his research to construct a theory of gay and lesbian teacher identity development as a model for advocacy for LGBTQ teachers and students.

Philip lives in Atlanta with his partner, Sean, their son, Zaden, and their dog, Cecil.
