Why Inbound?

  • 01 Trailblazing storyteller Janet Mock has written two bestselling memoirs about her journey as a transgender woman. Janet’s commitment to showcasing authentic queer stories can be seen on shows like FX’s POSE and Netflix’s The Politician and Hollywood, and has earned her a Golden Globe and Emmy nomination. The Peabody and AFI recipient also made history with being the first transgender woman of color to sign a three-year multimillion-dollar deal with Netflix. 

Janet Mock is a writer, director and executive producer for the FX series POSE and the Netflix limited series HOLLYWOOD. She’s written two bestselling memoirs, Redefining Realness (2014) and Surpassing Certainty (2017) about her journey as a trans woman. In 2019, Mock signed a historic multi-million dollar deal with Netflix, making her the first trans person to secure an overall deal with a major studio. That same year, she received Harvard University’s Artist of the Year Award and was named on of The Hollywood Reporter’s "Women in Entertainment Power 100" and included on Vanity Fair’s “New Establishment” list. She has written for The New Yorker, The New York Times and Marie Claire, was featured in Jay-Z’s music video for “Family Feud," and appeared in Alex Garland’s FX on Hulu limited series, DEVS. She splits her time between Los Angeles and New York City and is currently developing a slate of television and feature projects. 

I believe that telling our stories, first to ourselves and then to one another and the world, is a revolutionary act.
