Dylan Wilder Quinn (they/he) believes closeness is necessary to dismantle oppression. Their combination of life experiences as a childhood abuse survivor and holding both oppressed and oppressor identities informs their liberation work. They are especially passionate about bringing fellow trans, nonbinary, queer, masculine, and disabled white people along in seeing how our own liberation and mental wholeness is deeply tied to ending white supremacy while centering POC liberation. They are a part of a team called Holistic Resistance, founded by Aaron Johnson and Porsha Beed.
They are especially passionate about working with cisgender people to more fully hear and hold transgender people's stories, and building all people's resilience for systemic change. They mentor trans people about surviving oppression and building capacity for social justice work. They founded TransLiterate in 2015 and TransIntimate in 2020, to build resilience and connection among trans folks and connection and skill-building for cisgender people who want to be close to transgender people and fight for our liberation.
I want to know you. I want to know your story, who you feel closest to in your life, and what drives you to create a different world.
