Janet Mock is the New York Times bestselling author of Redefining Realness, the fall selection for the MIT Reads program. She is the host of MSNBC’s “So POPular!” a weekly series about popular culture, politics, identity and representation, and also serves as Contributing Editor for Marie Claire — the magazine where she first stepped forward publicly as a trans woman. Her writing, work and media advocacy has been recognized by the Ms. Foundation, Planned Parenthood, ADCOLOR, TIME, which dubbed her “one of the 30 most influential people on the internet,” and Fast Company, which named her “one of the most creative people in business.” Hailing from Honolulu, Hawaii, Janet lives and writes in New York City.
