 Maura Quint  is a humor writer and activist whose work has been featured in publications such as McSweeneys and The New Yorker. She was named one of Rolling Stone’s top 25 funniest twitter accounts of 2016. When not writing comedy, Maura has worked extensively with non-profits in diverse sectors including political action campaigns, international arts collectives and health and human services organizations. She has never been officially paid to protest but did once find fifteen cents on the ground at an immigrants’ rights rally and wanted to make sure that had been disclosed. She was the co founder and executive director of TaxMarch.org 


Jessie Earl is a YouTuber, video producer, journalist and writer. Mainly, she makes videos for her YouTube channel  “Jessie Gender” where she uses pop culture and geekdoms as entry points to talk about LGBTQ, transgender, and other social issues. She has also worked as a creator and writer for the LGBTQ magazines The Advocate and Out Magazine, as well as a video producer for Skybound Entertainment, Gamespot, Microsoft, the Seattle Museum of Pop Culture, and more. She’s also a giant Trekkie, so be careful not to mention Spock or she will talk your pointy ears off.
