This creative visual addresses queer invisibility by encompassing the intricacies of the Gay Liberation manifesto and the Black Panther Party’s manifesto. Originally inspired by Sofia Snow’s “List of Demands: Because Existing is a Privilege, emerging author Nicole Shantè White uses the bed as a metaphor for the casket people try to throw queer folks in.

As a power house of poetry, theater, and dance, Nicole has become a cluster of Midwest accents and Southern hospitality. She hates wearing shoes, loves pancakes with crispy edges, and is still trying to figure out when a handshake is more appropriate than a hug. Instead of fulfilling her kindergarten dream of being the voice-over for read-a-long cassette tapes, she now aspires to be a college professor. She currently resides in Atlanta, GA where she is studying Creative Writing and Women’s Studies at Georgia State University. www.nicoleshantewhite.org Twitter: @whitesnicole
