My nonfiction has been published in the anthologies White Riot: Punk Rock and the Politics of Race and Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love & Fashion as well as in publications such as Bitch Magazine, EBONY.com, and Bitch Planet.

why should I give you money?I'm a queer Black disabled enby femme, so traditional avenues for advancement in society are often closed off to me. I have amazing things to offer if given the chance. I'm asking you to help give me one. With dealing with my crazy mind and my pained body and also trying to help others around me as much as possible, I don't have a lot of spoons left for making money and pouring myself into my art. Anything you can offer will help lighten the load and enable me to create even more.
