Rae Theodore is the author of Leaving Normal: Adventures in Gender (Regal Crest, 2017), a memoir that takes a hard, humorous and sometimes heartbreaking look at living outside the gender margins. Leaving Normal was shortlisted for an award for creative nonfiction by the Golden Crown Literary Society.
Rae believes in the power of story–the stories we tell ourselves and those we share with others. Through speaking engagements, she teaches participants how to use story to create positive change (change your story, change your life) and to realize that people are more alike than different. She also organizes local Story Jams.
