Sampson Spadafore

Black and white headshot of Sampson

Sampson Spadafore (he/they) is a white, queer, gay, nonbinary trans man currently living on settled Wabanaki tribal land known as Portland, Maine. They are a consent and violence prevention educator and are a trained theatre artist with a BFA in Musical Theatre from Nazareth College of Rochester. He also identifies as a poet and writer where he centers his trans and queer experience while unpacking his mental health journey. Sampson focuses his activism on trans and queer rights at the intersections of other oppressed identities and continues to deepen their own learning about layered intersections of anti-racism and decolonization while incorporating that into all areas of their work. They’re a leading organizer with Maine Renters United. He also serves as an at-large member of the MaineTransNet steering committee.
