Quita Tinsley is a self-described “city femme with small town roots.” She is a Black, queer feminist that writes, organizes, and overall is working to build sustainable change in the South. She holds a B.A. in Journalism with a minor in Sociology from Georgia State University, and she is currently pursuing an M.A. in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies from her alma mater. Quita serves as the Youth Activist Network Organizer at SPARK Reproductive Justice NOW. She is also a member on the board of directors of Access Reproductive Care – Southeast, and is a former content creator for the The Body Is Not An Apology.
As a femme, feminist, and queer Black woman, it is through her lived experiences and complex identities that Quita has come to believe in the power of storytelling and the validation of lived experiences. Through her work, in all of its forms, she hopes to continue fighting oppression and uplifting the voices of silenced and marginalized young queer and trans folks.
