ABOUT THE ZOOEY ZEPHYR

Zooey Zephyr Headshot

Zooey Zephyr is a progressive, bisexual trans woman who has spent her personal and professional life advocating for queer rights. Zephyr was born in Billings, Montana, where she spent the first decade of her life. After graduating from the University of Washington, she returned to Montana to attend graduate school at the University of Montana. Over the last seven years, she has worked as full-time staff at UM, first in the Biology department, and more recently in the Office of the Provost.

In her work with the university, Zephyr has helped programs on campus integrate diversity, equity, and inclusion practices into their faculty requirements. As an activist, she has helped people who have faced discrimination navigate the bureaucratic processes required to access justice, and she has also worked with the city of Missoula, Montana to draft human rights legislation tailored towards making justice more accessible to people who have been discriminated against.
