Mia McKenzie is the creator of the popular blog “Black Girl Dangerous” (http://www.blackgirldangerous.org/), activist, and author of “Black Girl Dangerous: on Race, Queerness, Class and Gender” as well as numerous articles and short stories. Black Girl Dangerous seeks to, in as many ways as possible, amplify the voices, experiences, and expressions of queer and trans* people of color.
