    On predictions of death

    I am like him. When I am angry, my eyes flash contemptuously and I say nothing. I feel wrath and hatefulness and plan cruelty. It passes. I’m glad that is mostly all.

    Living the Pandemic Lush Life

    ...we can’t figure out why the conflict until we know what exactly you are getting out of drinking and what you’re not loving about it so much.

    My Latinx Mental Healthcare Story

    My mom is an immigrant from Quito, Ecuador. In Latinx culture, it’s common to treat a visit to the doctor like a visit to the mechanic. Something is wrong, you pay a professional to fix it...

    The Summer of Pussy

    It makes sense that those at the helm of “WAP” and P-Valley are Black and Brown women, because it is the other who is forced continually to rise up and assert a voice—otherwise there would be no space made for her.

    Musician/Artist Kelly Fleek on Living Your Truth, Successful Queer & Creative Partnerships, and Kicking Doors Down

    Kelly Fleek is a Spider Fern Maven (the Spider Ferns are her band). A Lo Flux babe (Lo Flux Media is her PR company). A storyteller. And a maker of things who is into witchy shizz.

    She’s currently working on a new full length album for The Spider Ferns, creating a new series of hand knit wearable sculptures and a line of textiles and home interiors based on elements from her paintings, reclaiming an acre of land that she’d allowed to grow over during years of being a touring musician, and building a retreat for musicians and artists on her property north of Seattle.  

    We discuss successful queer and creative partnerships, living your truth, and kicking doors down.

    Takeaways

    1. Work hard to trust yourself.
    2. Believe in what you’re doing despite what other people say.
    3. Continue on despite what you hear.
    4. Don’t assume people who are judging your art or music know what they are talking about.
    5. If you believe in yourself, you will continue to open doors.
    6. Kick doors down.   
    7. Accept people for who they are.

      BONUS: Love is punk!
