Paloma Lamona

Drag Fellow @palomalamona

"Hola mis amores, my name is Paloma!
I’m originally from the Bay Area but moved to the city about 3/4 years ago. My drag is a reflection of my love for art, especially as it relates to my Mexican heritage. My drag to pays homage to all of the strong Latinas that made me who I am today. I love making people feel things through performance and I adore fashion/designing. I make most of my looks by hand. Ultimately, I aim to create space for Black Quens / Queens of Color to be heard and respected; and I am so grateful to be supported in doing so by Nurturing networks.
I’m a lil' hood, a lil' classy, and proud of it!"

Organizing Fellow @Plantxchange

"My name is Russell (he/they) and I'm a student studying public policy and community change. I grew up in Alphabet City and eventually relocated to Brooklyn. I've grown up seeing what a lack of resources does to communities that want to flourish. Being an educator and community organizer has made me feel powerful rather than hopeless in a city where policy is set on keeping marginalized groups down. I help run two groups that focus on harm reduction, gardening, and the arts. It's an incredibly rewarding experience to connect with others and provide some support. I'm so excited to expand my skills and make an impact. "
