AT&T Dream in BlackFuture Maker Angelica Ross is the Founder & CEO of TransTech Social Enterprises. An actress and transgender rights advocate from the board room, to film and TV sets and up to Capitol Hill, she is a leading figure of success and strength in the movement for Transgender and racial equality.
Ross is a series regular on the ninth season of Ryan Murphy’s FX hit “American Horror Story: 1984” and is confirmed to return for the untitled season ten. She is blazing a trail, kicking open doors and building her own table with ample open seats. In 2020 Angelica became a face of Nicolas Ghesquière’s pre-Fall campaign for LouisVuitton—a campy homage to vintage sci-fi book covers.
Angelica’s acting breakthrough came in the form of Ryan Murphy’s Award-Winning FX hit, “Pose”—which follows NYC’s Black and Latino LGBTQ and gender-nonconforming ballroom culture scene in the '80s and early '90s. Making TV history, the show features the largest transgender cast ever for a scripted series. Vanity Fair raved that “Angelica Ross steals many of her scenes as ‘Candy’” the brashest member of the ‘House of Abundance.'
