The books in my apartment look almost decorative. I live in a dorm-sized studio, so I don’t actually have a bookshelf. Instead, I keep my books lined up on top of my dresser, squished between my art easel, some ceramic sculptures and a funky antique lamp. It’s a big dresser. The books in my collection ha...

The 2019-2020 film awards season has come to an end, so it’s only fair we look at it in review. The season, peppered with political speeches like Patricia Arquette’s, also saw justice for actors who have historically been snubbed (I’m looking at you, Renee Zellweger). In December 2019, ...

Last month, Country Music Television announced half their programming would be women’s music videos from here on out. Why is this a big deal? It’s simple. Country music has a problem with women artists and the events of 2019 made it painfully obvious. In April 2019, a study by researchers at th...

I adore books. To be dramatic: I am a human made up of ink prints and paper cuts. My personality consists of books — books whose characters broke me down and whose words stitched me back together. As a queer person of color, I have gotten to a point in my life where I do not like to consume media t...
