“Smart, intense, funny and deeply personal work that is important to support and spread.”

fearless and deeply committed to justice […] You want their passion and determination behind your organization or cause.”

“[AC] has a rare talent: making people aware of their own biases and the hurt they cause without alienating them or making their walls go up. They don’t mince words, but you know even when the words aren’t minced, they’re delivered with openness and love.”

Hi! I’m Mx. AC (Angela) Dumlao and my pronouns are they/them/theirs.

I’m a proud queer transgender non-binary first-generation Filipino-American. As an artist & advocate, my work is dedicated to affirming and uplifting underrepresented folks and their intersectional identities.

I work at the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund (TLDEF) as their Name Change Project Coordinator. I connect low-income transgender people with law firms providing pro bono legal representation on legal name changes as well as present trainings / CLEs on the Name Change Project to partner law firms.

In addition, I run the social justice Facebook Call Me They and the genderqueer fashion/radical self-care Instagram @menswearselfcare. I’ve been profiled by NBC Asian America‘s #RedefineAtoZ list of AAPI emerging voices in Spring 2017 and my  writing has been featured on The Huffington Post, Autostraddle.com, and Wear Your Voice Magazine.

(You can grab my up-to-date bios here!)
