“AC describes their intersections of race, gender, and sexuality in a way that makes it easy to grasp for new readers, yet still refreshing and engaging for folks who are already familiar with some social justice terminology. Their style of writing is informative, but perhaps most importantly, affirming and encouraging.”
– Charlene Vo, Nonbinary and queer student of color

Hi! I’m Mx. AC Dumlao.
My pronouns are they/them/theirs. In older articles and the world, you may sometimes also see me as “Angela,” my birth name.
I’m a proud queer trans non-binary first-generation Filipino-American. As an artist & advocate, my work is dedicated to uplifting underrepresented folks and centering their experiences of intersectional oppressions. In addition, I am passionate about raising awareness and ending the stigma that surrounds mental illness.
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. I also run TLDEF’s education program and train on trans cultural competency and employer best practices.
I run the social justice Facebook page Call Me They (7K followers and counting!) and the genderfull fashion/radical self-care Instagram @menswearselfcare. I was 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.
