We're proud to have a team of trans people of color who assist our writers with developing their insightful, vulnerable truths.
Dom enjoys editing, designing & community organizing; their comfort zone is supporting others behind the scenes. Even as the editor-in-chief here, they find publishing their own work to be terrifying. Overcoming that anxiety to exist is made possible by the support of the R4R team, the love from our readers, and the generosity of donors. Thank you!
