Sadie McRae
(She/Her/Hers, They/Them/Theirs)
Writer, Organizer

I am a writer and an occasional photographer, and an overall lover of all kinds of arts. I try to participate as much as I can in the Portland queer scene – I host and attend events and groups that empower queer people and create comfortable spaces. I am furthering my knowledge on topics of racial injustice and inequity to be a better ally and activist. I believe that we should have respect and love for all people, that there is always more to learn, and that everybody deserves to feel safe and empowered.

What does intersectionality mean to you?
Intersectional youth power is so important to me because of how important it is to assisting the world and my peers. People deserve their true identities, and to feel safe in them, and intersectional youth power shows them that they can.
