BUST Mother, May I-- an edited version of my original essay, Mother Whore-- appears in BUST Feb/March 2017. Great cover, so honored to be in the same pages as bell hooks, Kim Gordon, and Pussy Riot. A little peeved that BUST did not include my bio or link in the contributors section. WTF?
Apogee Journal Issue #8 I am honored to have the first chapter of my memoir published in Apogee Journal. Get my words into your hands HERE. Mission statement: Apogee is a journal of literature and art that engages with identity politics, including but not limited to: race, gender, sexuality, class, ability, and intersectional identities. We are a biannual print publication featuring fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and visual art. Our goals are twofold: to publish fresh work that interrogates the status quo, and to provide a platform for underrepresented voices, prioritizing artists and writers of color. The word “apogee” denotes the point in an object’s orbit that is farthest from the center. Our mission combines literary aesthetic with political activism. We believe that by elevating underrepresented literary voices we can effect real change: change in readers’ attitudes, change in writers’ positions in literature, and broader change in society.
