When I was a student, all that was told to me was how much my cultura didn’t matter. How important European art and standards are, and how totally dominant their aesthetic should be. All I wanted to do was tell my story. And I looked nothing like what is considered relevant or beautiful or important by society’s ideals. But I JUST.KEPT.GOING. Here are some of my pieces. I’m here to uplift and change who is in the spotlight. Powerful womyn of color. My indigenous sisters.

Stunning.

Thank you for sharing! ❤

BAD ASS!!!!!

We cannot educate white women and take them by the hand. Most of us are willing to help but we can’t do the white woman’s homework for her. That’s an energy drain. More times than she cares to remember, Nellie Wong, Asian American feminist writer, has been called by white women wanting a list of Asian American women who can give readings or workshops. We are in danger of being reduced to purvey­ors of resource lists.

Gloria Anzaldúa

Feminism needs to be authentically intersectional, or nothing at all. This speaks volumes

"Good Fatty" vs "Bad Fatty"

an exploration of behaviour and the policing of women’s agency

photographer: Isabel Dresler
model: Kitty Stryker

In this I wanted to explore what constitutes “good fatty” behaviour vs “bad fatty” behaviour. I’ve had my grocery choices policed, been asked if I’m hurting the reputation of other plus size people by eating ice cream in public, and had strangers offer me diet tips when I was waiting in line. I’ve been sneered at for wearing tight clothes and been tsked for being happily sexual. As someone who only saw my body made sexualized in feeder porn, I wanted to confront the idea that being fat and sexy was shameful/ugly, rather wanting to depict shame as performed for the thin-striving gaze to earn approval. The “good fatty” is the fatty who exercises, who eats well, who hides her body. I’m a bad fatty, all the way, and I don’t give a fuck.

can’t get enough of lauren kalman But if the Crime is Beautiful….& Pearl

Composition with Ornament and Object is part ofthe ongoing project But if the Crime is Beautiful…. Consisting of fabricated and found objects combined with the body to produce sculptural compositions, these sculptures are then documented and exist as photographs. The objects used to make the compositions are installed with the photographs as as residue of the action.

FEATURE: Kai Davis

"My identity is already very politicized because I am Black, I am a woman, and I am queer. […] Just me writing poetry and allowing my identity to come forth in that poetry is already a political statement, no matter what I say." - Kai Davis in an interview with Radical Privilege

The first time I saw Kai Davis perform Fuck I Look Like? I was in awe. Everyone who’s seen the video can relate. It’s a fast-paced, quick-witted, emotionally charging, unapologetic calling out of normalized racism in classrooms. The more bits of poems I read, the more I wanted to read. Her chapbook became my travel companion. She’s brutally honest in her poetry and that makes for poems that don’t necessarily make you happy, but that you crave none-the-less. Here are my personal favorite poems by her:

  1. Loving in Parts (on loving a survivor)
  2. Homicidal Rainbow (on being queer)
  3. Dear Dirty Hipsters (on gentrification & cultural appropriation)
  4. Black Girl (on the beauty of black women)
  5. Stares (on both sides of receiving male gaze)
