The wolf girl herself!

Hi! I’m Naia Ōkami! I am most well known for the quote “On all levels except physical, I am a wolf”. Despite this being my “claim to fame”, I would much rather be known for something ANYTHING else. In reality, I am a twenty-six year old transgender woman living in the Southeastern United States. I identify as a British Columbia Wolf and Red Fox therianthrope.

Despite mainly being known for my presence in the alterhuman community, I am also an early advocate of the neurodiversity movement, and am one of the main people responsible founding Autistic Pride Day (celebrated each year on my birthday, June 18th) in 2005. Additionally, I speak about Autism Spectrum Disorders at conferences and universities across Georgia. More still, I advocate for LGBTQ+ rights in my home state of Georgia, and released the first guide to changing your gender marker in my state without reversible surgery in 2019. On yet another note of activism, I have also participated in operations against internet predators of children.

I am a hobbyist programmer; I’m also a credited game programmer & technical consultant for the Massively Multiplayer Online Social Game of Furcadia. I am the creator and administrator of both Kinmunity (otherkin community), and Wolf Howl (distributed social networking instance). My interest and specialization is in information security.

Outside of my hobbies, notoriety, and spirituality, I have worked in the fields of Information Technology and Investigations, loving the latter and despising the former. That’s me in a nutshell outside of what I’m most commonly known for — thanks for reading!
