Outdoor Project: Women in the Wild

I feel really good about this interview with the Outdoor Project and I’m grateful to be included with the second Women in the Wild project.

READ NOW!

“If I dig deep, I’m sure [being a woman in the outdoor industry] means a lot of things, but “woman” sort of sits third place to my identities as a fat and queer person. I find this representation almost non-existent in outdoors culture, and while the support I’ve received tells me the time has come for a presence like mine, I am still dodging so much hateful crap online, I frequently have to ask myself why I keep putting myself out there like feed for wolves. Why do I keep putting myself in spaces where voices like mine aren’t taken seriously? The answers lie in the questions. It’s time for new outdoor stories.”
