FULL BIO

Founder & CEO of TransTech, Actress, Producer & Advocate

From the board room, to film and TV sets to Capitol Hill, Angelica Ross is a leading figure of success and strength, in the movement for Transgender and racial equality. A series regular on the ninth season of Ryan Murphy’s FX hit American Horror Story: 1984, and confirmed to return for the currently untitled season ten, Angelica 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 Louis Vuitton — 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 80’s and early 90’s. 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.’

Since studying acting at Florida Atlantic University, Angelica has appeared across numerous mediums, including film, television, and theatre. One project, the Emmy-nominated (Outstanding Short Form Comedy or Drama) web series Her Story, received special recognition at the GLAAD Media Awards. A segment Angelica appeared in on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, was honored with a GLAAD Award for Outstanding Talk Show Episode. She’s also appeared in Transparent (Amazon), Claws (TNT), Doubt (CBS), and Danger & Eggs (Amazon).

Miss Ross also works behind the camera! She executive produced and appeared in the Daytime Emmy-nomiated web series King Ester ( 2019), and in the short film Missed Connections (2017), which went on to be an official selection at the Outfest LGBTQ Film Festival, the La Femme International Film Festival, and the Baltimore International Black Film Festival.

Angelica Ross is the President of Miss Ross, Inc. and founder of TransTech Social Enterprises, a program that helps people lift themselves out of poverty through technical training, digital work creating a social impact, and bringing economic empowerment to marginalized communities.
