Hida Viloria is a Latinx writer and LGBTQIA activist in the vanguard of bringing intersex and non-binary issues to human rights organizations as a consultant (United Nations, Human Rights Watch and Lambda Legal), and to the masses as a frequent television and radio guest (Oprah, 20/20, NPR, BBC…) and one of the most extensively published writers in the field (HuffPost, The Daily Beast, The Advocate, The NY Times, Ms….). Hida spearheaded the first global call by and for intersex human rights, was the first openly intersex person invited to speak at the UN, and is a leader in the fight for non-binary gender recognition with the non-profit s/he founded, the Intersex Campaign for Equality, and as the recipient of the second intersex birth certificate in the U.S.. This spring, s/he was interviewed by Rolling Stone, Psychology Today, and NPR about her memoir Born Both: An Intersex Life (Hachette Books), which was selected as one of People’s best new books and praised by The NY Times, The Washington Post, and more, and is the first book by an intersex author published by a Big 5 publisher.

Named ‘Viner of the Year’ by CBS, Jeffrey has 500k+ fans on their social channels, and is the creator of the global trends #NoTimeToHateMyself and #DontSayThatsSoGay. Jeffrey is a regular contributor, writer, and on-air host for Snapchat Stories, Facebook Live, O Magazine, Oprah.com, TIME.com, Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, Mashable, and Mom.me, to name a few.

As a fashion model, Jeffrey changed the garment industry by becoming the first gender non-binary bride in a bridal gown lookbook. Jeffrey is the first non-binary author with Penguin Random House, and the first multi-hyphenate talent to use ‘they/them’ pronouns (as opposed to he/she/his/her’). Jeffrey’s fans are updated regularly on their self-acceptance fan club app, available in the Apple App Store and Google Play, and Jeffrey will soon be seen as the fashion model for their own line of genderfluid clothing.
