We are losing inertia

I first met Bing Hao via the internet when I was putting together my zine on queer art and activism in Singapore (click on the image to see the zine online for free). He then visited NYC when I was also in town where we finally met in person. Well this time Bing was the one putting together a zine. I’ll let the zine speak for itself. It’s called We are Losing Inertia.  I wrote a piece called Transcending QTPOC (Queer and Trans People of Color) activist burnout. Check it out if you have time 🙂 There are also some great pieces by folks I really respect like Jay Bernard, Raju Rage and Vanessa Ho.

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
