Meet Our Scholars
The University of Texas at Austin
Education and History
Fox is a queer, transgender, Hispanic scholar, born and raised in San Antonio, Texas with passions for public education, social justice, and re-centering erased histories. Driven by alienation from friends and family upon first coming out, Fox set out to lay the foundations for community support that he had lacked. They co-founded MacArthur High School’s first Gay-Straight Alliance and later co-founded the Gender and Sexuality Association of San Antonio College. As GSA Vice-President, Fox dedicated himself to supporting their houseless community with a donation drive. Through the Honors Academy and History department, he helped organize LGBTQ+ and Women’s History Month Exhibits. Now a double education and history major at the University of Texas at Austin, Fox remains active in their advocacy, recently marching at the Capitol for transgender visibility with the Queer and Transgender Student Alliance. Upon graduation, he aims to make waves as a proud transgender Texas public school educator.
