MAKER SPOTLIGHT: Art Activist Nia

I have made zines and books about trying to make a living as a queer artist of color.

I am a queer, mixed-race, disabled woman of color. My books are some of my zines are based on my podcast, which I have transcribed for hard of hearing access. I try to keep the money within QTPOC community by hiring other low-income QTPOC to transcribe the episodes.

My second self-published book just came out! My vision is to get it into even more hands than the first one. The challenge I see is that self-published books are often not taken as seriously as “real books” and don’t get the same kind of distribution.

I am excited to share political art by queer and trans people of color at Magic Makers!
