Born and raised in New Orleans, Brandon Anthony knew he had a passion for entertainment as an adolescent. He began acting in the third grade and at 16 decided he wanted to move to Atlanta, GA with his mother to strongly pursue acting. In 2003, he graduated from Tri-Cities High, a performing arts High School in East Point, GA and decided he wanted to relocate to Chicago to attend Columbia College Chicago to further his studies in Theatre and Film. In December 2008, he received his B.F.A in acting. He then knew that if he wanted more opportunities, he would have to move to Los Angeles. Immediately after graduating, in early 2009 he moved to L.A to pursue acting. He is currently represented by CGEM Management and Pantheon Talent Agency.
When Brandon Anthony relocated to Los Angeles, while enjoying the nightlife from time to time, he discovered that there were no outlets for LGBTQ of color to fellowship and celebrate their uniqueness as a black queer and trans community. So he decided to start curating Cultural Events designed specifically for LGBTQ people of color. From the instant success of his events, and quickly becoming LA’s biggest LGBTQ promoter of color, he then founded B.A.S.H LA (Brandon Anthony’s Socialite House) - now known as BBE Group - a premiere Live Event & Entertainment Group. Host, performers, and special appearances have included NeNe Leakes, Lala Anthony, Karrauche Tran, Kelly Rowland, Ciara, Liberty Bell, Jeremy Scott, Brandy, City Girls, Khelani, Jussie Smollett, and many others. He currently serves as Executive Producer of LA’s Black Pride during the 4th of July weekend as well as the Event Coordinator for the LA PRIDE festival, held annually in West Hollywood, CA. In June 2020, in the wake of the murder of Tony McDade and George Floyd, he co-founded B.L.A.C (Black LGBTQ + Activist for Change) an independent collective of Black LGBTQ+ leaders and voices, recognizes and celebrates the years of action of Black leadership and community and is committed to dismantling racial injustice, systemic oppression, institutional barriers, police brutality, and discrimination of Black LGBTQ+ individuals and communities.
On June 14, 2020, he along with the B.L.A.C Advisory Board, organized the All Black Lives Matter march in solidarity of the trans and queer community of color which attracted over 40,000 people across LA county. On August 21, 2020, Councilman Mitch O’Farrell commemorated the march with a permanent commemorative design located on Hollywood & Highland. He continuously works with AIDS Healthcare Foundation, In The Meantime, and LA LGBT Center year round to use his platform to build community partnerships and provide platforms advocating on social issues impacting the Black LGBT community, namely the disproportionate impacts of HIV amongst Black gay men.
