About The Culture RUSH

The Culture RUSH started a monthly newsletter for my mailing list, sharing my thoughts on pop culture and current affairs as related to social justice, book recommendations, playlist gems, and curated lists of great content from around the internet. It's fun to put together, subscribers really enjoy it, and it's led to another idea—Scorch! This new product will break down academic and feminist text and theory for wide audiences. Think Blinkist, but feminist. 

My cultural critique and social justice writing has become more time-consuming, highly shared, and desperately necessary. Sitting at the cross-section of numerous marginalized identities and living in a Caribbean country with proximity to the U.S., my work centers vulnerable people. I enjoy sharing ideas, encouraging other people to imagine better futures, and building people power so we can create what we envision for ourselves.

At this point, it's time to monetize my work. I've been doing far too much for far too little, and by "far too little" I really mean free. It's difficult to charge people for truths they don't want. To make people pay when you call them out because they didn't respond to the call-in. To put a price tag on this kind of work. That's why The Culture RUSH and Scorch are on Patreon. To give people the opportunity to recognize this work, support it, and get perks for helping to sustain it. To give me the time and space to create shareable work that patrons can copy and paste (with credit!) instead of expending their own energy on people—mostly on social media and in comment sections—who won't recognize the value or have the emotional intelligence to be grateful.

As a patron, you will have access to extra content. Subscribers will continue to receive the free monthly newsletter, and patrons will always get Scorch plus a little more. Mid-month articles. Raffle entries. Deals on merch. Toolkits. It all depends on your level of support, but everyone will get bonus badassery. All because I appreciate you affirming this work, putting coin behind it, and helping me to keep doing this. There's nothing I'd rather do, but I know I can't stay at this pace while working 10,000 side gigs and hustling for other less-exciting work so I can get by. Thank you for helping me to do this thing. It's the best thing I can imagine for myself. You rock.
