HUM 7 - Independent Reading 2020: Alex Gino


Pronouns: They/them
Originally from: Staten Island, NY
Fun fact: As their website's bio states: "Alex Gino loves glitter, ice cream, gardening, awe-ful puns, and stories that reflect the diversity and complexity of being alive. They would take a quiet coffee date with a friend over a loud and crowded party any day."

"There is a layer of depth and truth that comes from people writing from inside their communities that can never be replicated by people outside it."
