About Sam Killermann
Sam is the author of A Guide to Gender, which is a full exploration of gender from a social justice perspective, with humor and comics sprinkled in. Gender is one of those things everyone thinks they understand, but most don’t really understand at all. Kind of like the usage of the word “irony” (isn’t that ironic?). He gave a well-received TEDx talk where he distilled a few hundred pages of gender-bending discourse into a few minutes of fun, energetic, and, with some luck, comprehensible speech.
As a self-labeled “social justice comedian,” he spends a lot of his time trying to prove to people that this label makes sense. Sam is a dedicated ally and advocate, and blends humor into much of the work he does because he believes (like Mary Poppins believed) that sugar helps the medicine go down.
Outside of It’s Pronounced Metrosexual, Sam is the creator of Let’s Talk About Gender, founder of the non-profit Gamers Against Bigotry, co-creator of The Safe Zone Project, is always working on other social good projects, and likes to spend a least a couple hours a day cycling around sunny Austin, TX, where he counts himself as lucky to live.
