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. A former LSAT tutor who never touched law school, Alex can still talk your ear off about sufficient and necessary conditions. They are proud to have been an activist and advocate for LGBTQ+ communities since 1997 and to now be a member of We Need Diverse Books panels team. Born and raised on Staten Island, NY, Alex lives in Oakland, CA.
