I am mid-40s ally that lives in Chicago. I don't have any children of my own but am happy to be your stand-in mama/sister/auntie/cousin/friend/whatever and support the community in whatever way I can. My educational background is in Art and Social Justice, and I currently work in the mental health field. Also, I am a left-leaning Catholic nun (no, I don't "look" like a nun) who is quite comfortable talking about spirituality/religion with folks who try to use religion as a backdrop for narrow-minded and harmful views/words/actions. You are safe with me. I got your back, Love.
