Welcome Katherine!

Katherine CrossI am beyond excited to welcome Katherine Cross as our newest guest writer. I’ve been a fan of Katherine’s nerdy brilliance for a while. She’s had writing at Feministing before, but now she’ll be joining us on a more regular basis. Here’s some more info about her:

Katherine Cross is a pizza loving feminist sociologist, trans Latina, and amateur slug herder, working on her PhD at the CUNY Graduate Centre. When she’s not studying or gaming she can be found at the Sylvia Rivera Law Project. Her blog can be found at quinnae.com and her writing has also appeared in Women’s Studies Quarterly, Bitch Magazine, Questioning Transphobia, and Kotaku. She is a co-editor of the Border House.

Please join me and the whole blog crew in giving Katherine Cross a warm Feministing welcome. And look out for Katherine’s writing appearing on the blog super soon.
