Within the women for women community, Brown works with a group of women who have created a safe space for lesbians, bisexuals and any other women feeling comfortable to exist in the space. Furthermore, Kemone Brown serves on the steering committee of the Gays Lesbians All-sexuals and Bisexuals Community (GLABCom) C/o Jamaica Aids support for Life and she is also associated internationally with Caribbean Forum for Liberation and Acceptance of Genders and Sexualities (CARIFLAGS) and Development Alternatives for women of a New Era (DAWN).
