Brian Young Jr. is a Black, non-binary, liberation writer, aspiring director, and socialist. A descendant of poor Alabama working people, Brian’s perspective is also informed by great artists before them who have explored Love as a politic of freedom. For them, both the intersections of polyamory and pansexuality are at the center of how they live a fulfilling life. Their work is always political with an emphasis on showing beauty, which they believe is the potential for individual and collective power against systems of domination; and our capacity to use pain, joy, and vulnerability to connect and learn from each other. Their work has been featured in several magazines with other pieces currently in the publication process.
