Hi! I just wanted to message you because I am making a zine about queer black masculinity for a semester project at Ohio University and was wondering if you would be willing to participate in answering a few questions regarding some issues about queer black masculinity. I am trying to get a variety of voices in order to present a more personal/intimate perspective. If you're interested in helping plz message back or email mc385510 @ ohio edu then i could send you the questions. thank you! xo
