Where can you find me in April? Patreon, Comestible, and all sorts of places!
First and foremost: I have a Patreon now with some cool perks: a patron-only blog, postcards, zines… Supporting me means my partner and I can table at and travel to cons and hopefully turn The Corners of Their Mouth into a series. Which brings me to my next point:
The Corners of Their Mouth Vol. 2 will be on Kickstarter in the next couple months. The minimum goal is to pay our printing costs, which is about $400.
Have you checked out Equity at the Table (EATT)? You can join if you’re LGBTQ or a POC nonbinary person or woman in food, or if you’re a white cishet woman who offers services to/contributions from those groups.
Equity At The Table (EATT) is very much inspired by the aphorism that it’s better to “build a longer table, not a higher fence.” EATT is a practical and proactive response to the blatant gender and racial discrimination that plagues the food industry. EATT is an easy-to-navigate database for food industry professionals featuring only women/gender non-conforming folks and focusing primarily on POC and the LGBT community.
My piece on my queer Midwestern culinary landscapes will be coming out in Comestible soon! You can subscribe here or pick up a copy in Elliott Bay, Book Larder or your local independent book store after the release. I’ll write more about this (specifically the writing process) when I have my copy.
Hope you’re enjoying the flowers!
