Originally from Argentina, Cecilia Gentili came to the USA pursuing a safer life as a transgender woman. She lived undocumented for 10 years, hustling doing sex work which came with drug use. After surviving arrests and an immigration detention, she accessed recovery services and won asylum. She subsequently served as Director of Policy at Gay Men’s Health Crisis and founded Transgender Equity Consulting, which works to ensure all people living on the margins receive dignity and respect. A storyteller and actress, Cecilia has appeared in FX's Pose and her own one-woman show. Faltas is her first book.

Cat Fitzpatrick is the first trans woman to serve as Director of the Women’s and Gender Studies program at Rutgers University–Newark, and the Editrix at LittlePuss Press. She is the author of a collection of poems, Glamour­puss (Topside Press) and co-edited the anthology Meanwhile, Elsewhere: Science Fiction & Fantasy from Transgender Writers, which won the ALA Stonewall Award for Literature. The Call-Out is her first novel.

Jules Gill-Peterson is an historian and author based in Baltimore. She is the author of Histories of the Transgender Child (2018) and a co-editor of TSQ: Transgender Studies Quarterly. Her next book, A Short History of Trans Misogyny, will be published by Verso.
