I'm a queer, Persian-American, Jewish feminist dealing with all those intersections. I majored in Women's, Gender and Sexuality studies at Tufts and focused my senior project on feminist media literacy. I also blog for AdiosBarbie.com and work in youth development. I love Bette Midler, small-venue concerts, and traveling to strange pockets of the country.
