I’m Alexis (they/them), a black fat autistic butch who’s gonna talk about neurodivergency, sexuality, blackness, and their intersections.
I deleted my Facebook last week and I need a place longer than 280 characters to talk, so I’m ready to run my mouth here.
I write poems, essays, and co-write plays. I’m learning web development and am a dog trainer and former administrator for Self Care after R*pe. I’m getting my degree in Vet Tech, I edit, I’m learning to skateboard and make games, and I do social media for literary publications.
Are you thrown off by the different directions I’m going? So am I! Grab hold and let’s see where we’ll end up next. Thanks for coming!
I used to write for Autostraddle (some of my faves include my 100 Poets Post, The Black Lesbian Movie Project, The Harassment of Young M.A and Including Black Butches When We Talk About Violence, and Going Back Outside After The Streetlights Come On)
I volunteered with Self Care after R*pe for three years
I got my arm stuck in a bleacher in high school, in case you were wondering if I was properly humbled early in life
You’re still here? Amazing! Peep my bio ✌🏿
