From the board room to film/TV sets to the Obama White House to the National Trans Visibility March in Washington D.C., Angelica Ross is a leading figure of success and strength in the movement for transgender and racial equality. She portrayed the character Candy Ferocity in the hit FX series Pose and is currently starring as psychologist Donna Chambers in American Horror Story: 1984.

Through TransTech Social Enterprises, Ross creates social impact and brings economic empowerment to marginalized trans and LGBTQI+ communities. In September 2019, Ross also became the first openly transgender person to host an American presidential forum.
