I'm a writer and co-editor who has done a bunch of shit. I am that disabled, sick, autistic, you name it, Burgher/Tamil Sri Lankan/ Irish/Roma 45 year old queer femme writer, aunty, freedom dreamer and mostly a regular ass person who sits on my couch.   Ejeris Dixon and I co-edited Beyond Survival: Strategies and Stories from the Transformative Justice Movement. I wrote Tonguebreaker, Bridge of Flowers, Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice, Dirty River: A Queer Femme of Color Dreaming Her Way Home, Bodymap,  Love Cake and Consensual Genocide.  Ching-In Chen and Jai Dulani and I  co-edited The Revolution Starts At Home. we're either going to really get free or die trying.  brownstargirl.org, she/they.
