Bitch Magazine, 2005
Road, Cristy (www.croadcore.org) Cubana artist Cristy Road's work makes me so happy. Where else can you see drawings of a black genderqueer boy flashing his top surgery scars and grinning, or two girls hitchiking in the desert holding a sign that reads "Indigenous Soverrignty or Bust," all drawn with love, color, and punk rock grit? I hope she doesnt mind that I printed a few copies on my color printer and tacked them up on my wall to see some folks who look like me.
