Jay-Marie is creating Music, Writing & Freedom Dreams

patrons

Hey folks,

  Welcome to my Patreon Page! After years and years of sharing bits of my brain for freeeee.99 on various social media sites, I'm excited to be using this space to share my music, writing, and artistic creations. Want exclusive access? Become a Patron!

Who is Jay-Marie?
  For those unfamiliar with my work, I am a musician, thinker, cultural organizer, and educator now living in St. Louis, MO but originally from California - the Bae Area, to be specific. I've worked as as a classroom teacher, lyft driver, tutor, arts administrator, stage manager, youth theater educator, national cultural activist, gender barrier breaker, and more... in addition to being a Make-A-Wish kid, Stanford graduate, and USC Masters degree holder. 

If you can't tell, I have done - and still do - a lot. But I also have depression, a commitment to loved ones at the often-exploited margins, and a gender experience that most of the world doesn't care about understand. Ultimately, my true passion is sharing what I've learned from these varied outlets/walks of life with others, and I have recently discovered that writing & music are the best and most healthy ways for me to do that.

So, why Patreon???
 Well, while I'll continue my strategic consulting work with clients & orgs I believe in, I also need a creative outlet! - enter Patreon and you - my Patrons!

Your support will make it possible for me to have confidence (and accountability) in creating. Not only that but you have the amazing opportunity to help refine my personal artistic voice that has - up to this point - been hiding behind other folks.

What do we get, Jay-Marie... 🤔??
You'll have EXTRA SPECIAL access to my artistic works - music, poetry, & other writing - that exist at the intersections of Blackness, Gender, & Freedom Dreaming. I have thousands of words stored away just waiting be read by others! & with so many Black Queer/Trans/Gay close/community comrades and mentors passing away -- I'm remembering every day that there's no time like the present to revel in the gift of being alive and sharing my talents.

So, turn up & welcome to this space, where I look forward to sharing my fullest, most unfiltered self.

Now throw some bucks on it, will you plzzz? Cuz capitalism aint no joke, as we all know. Hope you join me here in surviving it.
