Jess St. Louis is a lesbian femme-identified trans woman who finds home in US South. She enjoys long conversations on the porch over a glass of whiskey or a cocktail, and has lots of love and reverence for butch/femme dyke culture and its herstory (even though she often dates fellow femmes). She works as a communicator within transformative social justice movements, carries a deeply held belief we can create a world without white supremacy and the prison industrial complex, and writes personal essays and some fiction in her spare time.
