Quinn Fontaine is a proud TRANS guy who has a background in all things expressive [standup, sketch and improvisational comedy, installation work and found object sculpture]. Fontaine’s first-ever one person show, Learning to Stay, was selected for fellowship with The Global Center for Cultural Entrepreneurship.

He has just completed his first book, Hung Like A Seahorse: A Real-Life Transgender Adventure of Tragedy, Comedy and Recovery.
