This week's episode Myisha interviews Jay- Marie Hill
Bikes. Bass. Blackness. Brilliance. Jay-Marie Hill (they/them), taken lover of the aforementioned, is a commitment to the work of big-upping Black women and Black trans folks in all their inherently deserving glory. Oakland-lost and Midwest-found, Jay-Marie is a musician, writer, facilitator, and queer Auntie.
Whether performing Holy protest music, managing New York Times Bestseller's book tours; leading the Black Trans Bike Experience; or running a mutual aid Fund for 'Sweet And' Missourians; Jay-Marie is a multi-hyphenate strategist and artist who shows no signs of stopping.
Their latest passions include building a Black-led, statewide Trans resistance effort in Missouri - including founding a statewide coalition to decriminalize sex work in Kansas City and St. Louis - and teaching youth about Bikes as Freedom Tools in St. Louis City. Look out for their 1st solo studio album as Jay-MarieisHoly, 5/3: More Than Magic, coming in late 2021.
