Time to be bold!


I made this as a reminder to myself that life is too short to pretend being someone I’m not. It was inspired by a letter Ann Curry writes to her younger self in the book I’m reading now called “What I know now: Letters to my younger self” edited by Ellyn Spragins.

Hope you enjoyed my yoga and colonization post from the other day and my 15 East Bay favorites. This is the fifth of an ongoing series of posts for the yoga teacher training fundraiser I launched a couple of weeks ago 🙂 I’ve already raised $2605 out of my $3500 goal with 11 days to go, and you can help me get closer 🙂 As a queer woman of color community artist and activist, I believe that I can be a part of the change to make yoga more accessible to marginalized bodies. Please visit my campaign page:igg.me/at/miyukiyoga to watch the video I made and to see all of the original art you get in exchange for donating! Thanks!


About Miyuki Baker

Miyuki is a resident of the place where circles overlap. As a queer, nomadic, multi-racial/lingual female mixed-media artist activist and healer, she uses common or discarded objects, personal anecdotes, public spaces and performance to make accessible art that brings non-mainstream identities and ideas into maximum visibility. After graduating from Swarthmore College in 2012, she traveled for 14 months as a Watson Fellow to fifteen countries documenting the intersections of art and activism in queer/trans communities in blog posts and self-published magazines while making performance art. The eight magazines Miyuki created on this trip (queerscribe.com) and their strong media following exemplify her illustration/graphic design, storytelling and people skills. Her work has been featured in several magazines such as Hyphen, Broken Pencil and Knik, blogs and radio shows, well-known for their interactive and eye-catching mixed media approach to activism that utilizes both online media and on-site performance and workshops. This fall she will begin the PhD program at UC Berkeley in Performance Studies. You can follow her travels at heymiyuki.wordpress.com and email her at heymiyuki@gmail.com
