Happy new year! I wrote and published a whole bunch of stuff in the second half of last year, including several pieces on music and culture. For Bitch I wrote a roundup of modern-day goth bands (yes, there are some!) with an eye toward women and genderfluid folks in the scene. I also wrote a new piece about Egyptian female-fronted metal band Massive Scar Era and, speaking of Africa, I wrote about Edward Banchs' new book, Heavy Metal Africa, for Vice.
Also for Vice, I wrote a follow-up to my piece on rape kits, focusing on how women are using the courts to get their rape kits tested. And I wrote two pieces late in the year for the SF Weekly about how the election of Donald Trump is affecting San Francisco's relationship with undocumented residents, including students and people facing deportation.
I'm looking forward to writing a lot more and sharing it with you in 2017.
