Updates from the second half of 2016

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. 


Springtime writing updates

Spring has sprung in San Francisco, which really just means alternating heat waves, drizzly days, and hay fever noses. I've been busily writing here and there (okay, not HERE so much). I wanted to take a moment to share a couple of my favorite recent articles. 

In early March I published a piece in the SF Weekly about a major screw-up the San Francisco transit agency made when making a key intersection more pedestrian-friendly. Their mistake made it difficult or impossible for buses to make the corner, and required them to tear up and redo a bunch of the work.

A couple of weeks ago I had my first piece in VICE, about "The Last Unicorn" author Peter S. Beagle's ugly legal fight against his former manager, who he accuses of fraud and elder abuse.
