Check out Nia King’s “We Want the Airwaves” and interview with Ryka Aoki

Screen Shot 2013-12-16 at 4.15.43 PMI’m being inspired at the moment by Nia King’s incredible podcasts interviewing queer and trans artists and activists of color. These podcasts are full of insights on the ups and downs of being at the intersection of multiple identities as artists and activists.

I just listened to Ryka Aoki‘s interview and feel super nourished!

Go check them all out for yourself at: http://www.artactivistnia.com/podcast.html

Enjoy :)



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
