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.

Do you have a panel or guest lecture series you’re planning? A podcast you’re recording? A photo series you’re starting? Contact me! And enjoy exploring the site.
