I am a Queer, Crip (Disabled and chronically ill), multi-racial/multi-cultural artist, poet, writer, editor, culture critic, and art history student. Pledging to me makes it possible for me to keep creating and to live. I am a full-time student, freelance writer/editor, consultant, and work part time in my school gallery. I really and truly live off my art. Pledging to me supports a living artist and supports those of us who are marginalized even within the art and literary communities. 

You can get more info about me on my main website. You can also follow me on TwitterFacebookMedium, and Instagram. You can buy my art in the Shakur Arts shop at http://mkt.com/shakur-arts.  

The monthly goal is to cover living expenses (other than rent, which is covered by my student loans) so that I can a) focus on school, b) continue to write/make art, and c) have basic needs met so I'm able to do what I do well without the constant threat of starvation etc.

You're probably supporting multiple people and this is the best you can do. I get it & I'm grateful. You get my undying love.

You've just covered a meal for me. I can't thank you enough. You have my utmost respect & since I won't be as cranky, I can answer your message too. :)

You've covered my copays for a doctor office visit & monthly prescriptions. Not only am I happy to respond to your message, but I'll also promote you if I can. Thank you!
Goals
$27 of $800 per month
This covers my basic monthly expenses, allowing me to stay in school and concentrate on learning/researching/writing about oft-forgotten Queer, Crip, POC artists. It also allows me to worry less about basic survival so I can create art.

$8 - pays one way for me to get to or from school

$20 - pays for me to get to the pharmacy to pick up prescriptions and get home

$30 - pays costs for me to get to a doctor's appointment and back home from the appointment

$80 - pays a week of car service transportation to and from school/the gallery

$70 pays my monthly phone bill

$200 covers my monthly credit card payments, which is part of how I eat
