About Emma Gonzalez

Emma González (born November 11, 1999) is an American activist and advocate for gun control.

As a high school senior she survived the February 2018 Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, and in response co-founded the gun-control advocacy group Never Again MSD.González gave a viral speech against gun violence, proclaiming "We call B.S." on the lack of action by politicians funded by the NRA.

Subsequently, González continued to be an outspoken activist on gun control, making high profile media appearances and helping organize the March for Our Lives.

Speaking at the demonstration, González led a moment of silence for the victims of the massacre; she stood on stage for six minutes, which she observed was the length of the shooting spree itself.

Early life and education

González was raised in Parkland, Florida, a suburb of the Miami metropolitan area. Their mother is a mathematics tutor and their father is a cybersecurity attorney who immigrated from Cuba to New York City in 1968. They have two older siblings.

González graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in the spring of 2018. They served as the president of its gay–straight alliance. In high school, González was also the tracking team leader on Project Aquila, a mission to send a school-made weather balloon "to the edge of space"; the project was documented by fellow student David Hogg. They enjoy creative writing and astronomy but not mathematics.

On the day of the shooting, González was in the auditorium with dozens of other students when the fire alarm went off. They attempted to exit through the hallway, but were told to take cover and took refuge back in the auditorium, where they were held for two hours until police let students out.

As of 2018, González was studying at New College of Florida.

Personal life

González is bisexual and uses they/them pronouns. According to Vogue, their buzz cut is not a reaction to the school shooting, but rather to Florida's climate. "People asked me, 'Are you taking a feminist stand?' No, I wasn't. It's Florida. Hair is just an extra sweater I'm forced to wear," González recalled. "I even made a PowerPoint presentation to convince my parents to let me shave my head, and it worked." In May 2021, González announced the usage of a new personal name, X, citing dissociation with their previous personal name and feminine pronouns.
