Mary Ann Thomas is the queer brown daughter of Indian immigrant parents, a travel nurse, bike tourist, and writer. They bicycled over 10,000 miles in the last five years: in 2014, she bicycled solo from San Diego to Montreal; in 2017, she biked across India from the Himalayas to Kerala, at the tip of the subcontinent where her family is from. Their writing has been featured in literary and travel platforms, such as The Rumpus, The Temper, On She Goes, Panorama: The Journal of Intelligent Travel, and She Explores. She is working on her travel memoir about biking across India towards homeland, queerness, and sobriety.
