why is 'du fait que' not 'du fait qu' if we're talking about a man? is it because its first person?

It isn't "qu'" because of masculine gender, but because "il" begins with a vowel. Since "je" begins with a consonant, it would be "du fait que je". Moreover, if we were to say "because she..." it would be "du fait qu'elle..."
