I’m excited to be joining you for the next two weeks as a guest blogger. (Thanks, Jill, for the invitation!)
By way of introduction, a bit about me: I’m a member of the editorial and publishing collective behind make/shift magazine. I also freelance as a writer and editor and contribute to the group LGBTQ blog The Bilerico Project.
In addition to making media, I find life better all around when participating in activism and community work in many forms. I’m active with Resource Generation, a group of young progressive-to-radical people with class privilege who are working together to figure out how to leverage our resources for social justice in ways that are accountable to mixed-class movements. And I love being part of a local produce co-op, cooking for community dinner/discussions, riding a bike in LA, giving away money to support social-justice work, and collaborating with friends on sporadic interventionist art projects. I identify as a white, queer, mixed-class person who experiences the world socio-politically as a “woman” but inside doesn’t really feel connected to any particular gender category.
Oh, and I’m a lover of print media who’s still getting the hang of blogging, so please bear with me while I learn before your eyes about comment moderation and multimedia content and such.
I’m really looking forward to being in conversation with you over the next two weeks.
