AC Dumlao (they/them) is a queer trans non-binary first-generation Filipino-American advocate/educator/artist focused on uplifting underrepresented folks and centering their experiences of intersectional oppressions. They are the creator of the social justice news Facebook page “Call Me They.” In 2017, AC was profiled by NBC Asian America for the inaugural “Redefine A to Z” list of AAPI emerging voices. AC is the Program Manager at the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund (TLDEF) where they lead the Name Change Project and Community Education initiatives. AC also volunteers on Afterwork Theater’s “Strike-A-Chord” Core committee for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. AC previously worked at the consulting firm M+R with top progressive non-profits including Planned Parenthood Action Fund and the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC). AC is also the director and co-producer of the award-winning one-person feminist play Post Traumatic Super Delightful (PTSD). They say that they’re inspired by “…people who are unapologetically themselves in the face of a society that values cis/heteronormativitity. When I saw the #ShePersisted hashtag go viral, I noticed that there were very few trans women and gender non-conforming people being associated with it. Because of that, I created my own image shares featuring people like Laverne Cox, Jennicet Gutiérrez, and Kate Bornstein. They are my inspirations.”
