Emji Saint Spero is a writer, performer, and pervert living in Los Angeles. They are curious about the potential of creative intimacies to queer the familiar, mapping the boundaries of collective engagement.

With Lauren Levin, they were co- developmental editor for We Both Laughed in Pleasure: The Selected Diaries of Lou Sullivan (edited by Ellis Martin and Zach Ozma), which was awarded the 2020 Lambda Literary Award for Transgender Nonfiction.
