Frederick Heather (they/them/elle) has been the Texas Gender & Sexuality Alliance (GSA) Network Coordinator for Out Youth since 2018. They have lived in Austin for more than a decade, committed to serving their community in nonprofit organizations supporting LGBTQIA2+ folks, helping survivors of domestic violence, and assisting Central Texans accessing reproductive healthcare.
Fiercely bisexual and genderqueer, Frederick is working to destroy the gender binary... and capitalism, white supremacy, and ableism, among other systems of oppression. When they’re not engaged in activism and social justice work, Frederick loves to write, read, travel, eat, dance with friends, and dote on their adorable dog. They consider themself a semi-professional booper of snoots, and yes, they do want to see a picture of your furbaby. They’d also be thrilled to compare birth charts with you, chat about self-improvement over a mani/pedi, or hear about your favorite musician or artist.
