Tristan Summers

Cuyahoga Community College

Physical Therapy


Community College

Tristan Summers was born in Cleveland Ohio, but has lived all over the United States, Europe, and China. He has authored several short stories and was a plaintiff in Karnoski v. Trump.

After a homophobic and transphobic attack that required surgery and months of physical therapy, he dedicated himself fully to recovery. It took some time, but eventually he realized he wanted to help others the way he’d been helped. He enrolled in a Physical Therapist Assistant program and is currently an honor’s student in the program.

In his free time, he writes, does CrossFit and adventure races, and drinks a lot of coffee.
