Kit MaloneMeet Up
Trans Educator and Advocate, ACLU of Indiana
Kit Malone (she/hers) is a transgender advocate and educator at the ACLU of Indiana, where she organizes a statewide public outreach campaign to identify transgender advocates and arm them with the tools to educate and engage their communities on the importance of passing comprehensive civil rights protections for all Hoosiers.
After a successful career working in public education as a high school teacher, Kit joined Freedom Indiana in 2016 as a community organizer. There she helped advance the cause of statewide equality for LGBT people in her home state by advocating for legislation to end discrimination in the areas of housing, employment, and public accommodation.
She is co-founder of the Indiana Trans Hivemind, “a ragtag band of trans folk devoted to public education, outreach, community service and occasional hijinks.” Working with this group, she has successfully organized a number of events with the aim of increasing the visibility of transgender folk throughout the state of Indiana. She has also served as Indy Pride’s Director of Diversity and was instrumental in the organization of the Trans Wellness Fair along with the first organized transgender marching contingent in the Indy Pride parade’s history.
