Welcomeherein lies a brownskin beatnik. i consider myself a queer black womyn at the crossroads between the beat generation, the harlem renaissance, and motown classics. womanism, islam, sub-free living, and tibetan Buddhism are huge factors in my life. they inform how i understand and shape my own world. i am into methods of alternative medicine and healing. thus my life is always filled with tea, yoga, chakras, homesteading methods, indigenous/POC traditions of veganism, herbalism, and other ways to say "fuck you" to conventional medicine when i can do it safely and sustainably. i tend to align myself with fat/plus size/voluptuous bodies, fat QTPOC bodies in particular. i am always looking for people who understand what it means to eat and to fuck and to cuddle and jiggle our fat as we please knowing those acts are radical and a daily struggle to do so. i consider myself to be a trill top, trill femme top to be specific. i am always looking for ways to describe my kinky self that doesn't draw on white understandings of queer BDSM/kink culture that don't always speak to my soul or understandings of myself. you can be my friend if your human, animal, liquid, spirit, ghost, or a gaseous star!
