Proud to be ELIXHER’s cover girl! In the Body Issue we create a space to celebrate our bodies, our narratives and our truths.
I’ve written about my experience shooting the cover and helping shape the theme of the issue with ELIXHER editor in chief Kimberley McLeod.
Lastly, I will be joined by Kimberley and the other queer women of the Body Issue who bravely bare all — Kim Crosby, Mia McKenzie and Tiona McClodden — on Thursday April 24 for a LIVE conversation via Google Hangouts at 3pm ET/12pm PT.

Can we talk about how fly these buttons are? 
They were created by The Multicultural Center at UW-Madison, an initiative called Crossroads, which hosted me last night for a talk about Redefining Realness.
I will wear the one with my name sharing space with TWoC legends, Miss Major, Marsha P. Johnson, and Sylvia Rivera until it falls off my chest!

Today, I am humbled to have led a conversation on HuffPost Live about the life and passing of For Brown Girls founder Karyn Washington and what her completion of suicide highlights for us all — specifically communities of color and “strong black women” everywhere.


Grateful to Tai’sha Gooden, Terrie M. Williams and Ty Alexander for joining me and my co-host Marc Lamont Hill. Watch our segment here.

This Sunday evening, I supported the Trans community from my living room couch. So much sparkle, Beyonce dubs, weave and pride. What a beautiful moment to highlight, Gloria Allen, among others, for all they have done for their community. 

So honored to be part of this legendary moment!
