About

Hello!

tldr; support a radical black queer femme feminist and get access to diasporic black feminist thought, creative fiction, political analyses, various forms of art (pastels, watercolors, digital, comics)! To see previous published written (black feminist pop-culture criticisms) work visit right here. Also, check out my public posts for things that I want to share with the community and are also examples of what you'd be getting as a patron <3 

This patreon is made in support of my (Sela) work in being a radical creator across varying genres of mediums (written - fiction, non fiction, short stories, opinion essays, audio - recordings of written work for accessibility, art - comics, pastel portraits, film photography, short films, etc) and ultimately to help me sustain an art shop and career as a creator. I am a black queer disabled feminist "scholar" (aka struggling student navigating the elitist field of academia), who has a deep love for afrofuturism and can sometimes be an afropessimist too. Ultimately, I want all interconnecting forms of oppression (such as white supremacy, capitalism, patriarchy, and imperialism) to fall, and I want to create content that helps people understand the work that I'm putting out.

I have published online articles through a great feminist based magazine (Bitch Media) which you can find all my written (non-fiction) work as their 2017 Pop-Culture Criticism Fellow right here on my page on Bitch's site. I publish my artwork (among other things) under Sela (resistance, resilience, return to ancestors, a chosen name) and you can find an example of that work in Bitch's issue, Revenge, where I also have a long print feature. 

Compensation for the work that I do as a black queer femme is what you're giving when you become a patron to my patreon (because the global economy will not respect reparations)! And as I not only write opinon essays and blog posts, I will also work to create a multimedia platform in which I can share as much knowledge (that I have privilege of accessing through multiple venues). This means better understanding the nature of this world's conditions with the community and sharing what I do have, because I also believe in shared and equitable resources -- especially when this comes to knowledge and creation. Shout outs to you if you read this whole thing!

I hope you'll hop in my portal and join me in my struggle for autonomy by becoming a patron and member of the community I am trying to build.

Fiker & Ashe,
Sela
