Audrey Tang

Audrey Tang (1981) is a Taiwanese free software programmer and minister without portfolio of Taiwan, who has been described as one of the "ten greatest Taiwanese computing personalities".

In August 2016, Tang was invited to join the Taiwan Executive Yuan as a minister without portfolio, making her the first transgender and the first non-binary official in the top executive cabinet. Tang has identified as "post-gender" and accepts "whatever pronoun people want to describe me with online".

As a general practice of "radical transparency", all of Tang's meetings are recorded, transcribed, and uploaded on a public website.
