Lauren Lubin is pioneering a new frontier of gender awareness and equality by producing WE EXIST: BEYOND THE BINARY–a film exploring life outside the gender binary. Lauren’s work shatters traditional, antiquated constructs that defines gender as either male or female. The conversation around this project has started an international “WE EXIST” movement, allowing those who exist outside the gender binary to also stand-up for their recognition.
Lauren’s work extends beyond the film and into the athletic arena as well. Both an avid runner and activist, Lauren made headlines in 2015 with their “WE RUN” campaign—which advocates for equal space and recognition for non-binary athletes in the world of sports. Lauren also founded Andro Runners: New York City’s first non-binary running group dedicated exclusive to non-binary athletes. In November 2016, Lauren will compete in the New York City Marathon as one of the first-ever openly non-binary runners.
Lauren’s a former Division I athlete who has published two books: The Rain Forest Awakenings and The Thoughtless Revolution. Lauren has been featured in ABC Good Morning, TIME, Huffington Post, MASHABLE, COSMO, Curve Magazine, Out Magazine, The Denver Post and countless others.
