T and Olivia Hunte
Intersections – $15
Intersections was created by a group of queer women of color to provide a space for sharing and celebrating the beauty and diversity that exists within our communities and within our own identities and intersectionality. As we navigate life, surviving and thriving, while honoring all of our identities we invite you to engage with our journeys depicted and written within this zine.
T is a goofy brown queer who enjoys sports, cooking, art things, and dancing. She spends most of her free time playing with her puppy and finding ways to bring down the imperialist white supremacist capitalist patriarchy.
Olivia identifies as a badass, queer black woman dedicated to fighting systemic oppression and challenging privilege through social work, words, and life in general.
