They're also passionate about the use of storytelling in advocacy and have used their own stories to advocate for LGBTQ rights, including speaking to the Ohio House of Representatives in support of the Ohio Fairness Act, also known as HB160.
Theo is pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing at St. Mary's College of California where they are the recipient of the 2018 SMC Lambda Literary Fellowship.
