Our belief that mixin’ things up a bit can lead to radically more connected and peaceful communities.
We are CJ and Jacs. Personally, professionally, and politically, we’re artists and activists. We are also queer Southerners from conservative, religious (Baptist and Pentecostal, to be exact) backgrounds who have chosen to challenge the notion that black and white can’t mix. In an effort to confront what it means to be in an interracial, queer relationship in the South, we plan to dig into our mind’s archives to process and share stories of race, religion, and sexuality in an ever-changing, yet heartbreakingly stagnant political landscape. Along our journey, we’ll connect with other people who are in relationships across differences to learn about the tools they use to navigate a practice of compassionate accountability.
