Diamond Stylz

Diamond Stylz has been one of the long standing voices of the millennial black trans community. She started her activism at 17 when she won a First Amendment rights lawsuit against the Indianapolis Public School system, a victory that allows her to go to the prom in a gender-affirming gown instead of a tuxedo. At 19, she was the first openly trans woman to attend the legendary HBCU Jackson State University where she honed her passion for activism. For a decade, she has used social media platforms like Youtube to archives trans people and events around the globe. Currently, Diamond is the Executive Director of Black Trans Women Inc, a national non-profit that is led by Black trans women focused on social advocacy, positive visibility and building strong leadership among Black trans advocates, activists, and our allies. Diamond is the host and producer of Marsha’s Plate, a weekly podcast that explore  politics and pop culture from a trans pro-black feminist lens.
