Gradient Lair is a personal blog and womanist space that I created, developed, published on and curated from 2012-2015, and tweeted 2013-2018; I closed it in October 2015. It is about Black women and art, media, social media, sociopolitics and culture. I did a lot of writing on womanist theory, Black women and pop culture, and street harassment (major topics covered there), as well as some writing on less often mainstream-explored topics such as Black womanhood and atheism, and Black womanhood and asexuality. I wrote a lot about intersecting oppressions and violence that Black women experience in private, public and online space. I also enjoyed writing about Black women as various types of artists; I curated and posted photographs, videos, short films and other art by Black women. It is not a space only about empowerment but also about vulnerability and joy.
