  1. Leigh

“This shit goes both ways.”

“If you voted for Donald Trump, in a ballot box or your mind, you are complicit. We were making progress and we took a big combover step back. But Leigh knows what to do. She uses creativity and wit to fight back.” Leigh’s project can be found at @_notes_to_self
