Janet Mock is the New York Times bestselling author of two memoirs, Redefining Realness (2014) and Surpassing Certainty (2017) about her journey as a Black and Kanaka Maoli (Native Hawaiian) trans woman. She’s also a writer, director and producer, most known for her path-clearing and historic work on the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series, “Pose.” Her other credits include Netflix’s limited series “Hollywood,” a revisionist take on 1940s show business, and the global true-crime sensation, “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.” The proud Honolulu native is the recipient of many honors, including Harvard University’s Artist of the Year Award (2019), the PEN Center’s Award of Honor (2017), ESSENCE’s Black Women in Hollywood Award (2020), and TIME’s 100 most influential people list. A passionate collector of Black art and an in-demand speaker and lecturer, Janet serves on the boards of the Brooklyn Museum and the Arcus Foundation for social justice.
