Mary Ann Thomas: Brown Queer Travel Writer

Home

I’m a brown queer girl who biked across the United States and Canada in 2014. I rode over 6600 miles on a trip that I planned solo. When I finished biking, I completely rearranged my life, moved to Alaska, and prioritized travel and writing in my life. In 2017, I bicycled from the high mountains of the Himalayas to the tip of India, and then to Kerala, where my parents are from.

I tell my stories along the way, often through intimate postcards sent to friends thousands of miles away. Here, you can find my published writing, browse through postcards I’ve sent my friends, family, and acquaintances and sign up to receive a postcard.
