Dr. Bethany Grace Howe


Bethany Grace Howe is a transgender woman, who gender transitioned at the same time she earned her Ph.D., now finding herself up to her ears in debt, misogyny, and people who think she’s pushy for daring to use the prefix “Dr.” before her name. The CEO and founder of a transgender health non-profit, she actively embraces the desire combat transphobia, ignorance, and those have no ability to escape their own cisnormativity and adherence to gender stereotypes.

In her free time, she’s a stand-up comedienne and humor writer, who uses humor to hide how angry she is half the time. Finally, and most importantly, she's intentionally raising a daughter to be a social justice warrior who thinks calling her parent both "daddy" and “she” is perfectly normal, even when in a public restroom in Mississippi.
