MAKER SPOTLIGHT: art activist Nia

Nia King is a multimedia journalist whose work focuses on political art by women, queer people and people of color. She is the author of Queer and Trans Artists of Color: Stories of Some of Our Lives and the host and producer of We Want the Airwaves podcast.


I am excited to bring my book Queer & Trans Artists of Color and my zines about trying to make a living as an artist.

I am a queer artist of color and much of my work is about highlighting other queer and trans artists of color.

I am currently working on Queer & Trans Artists of Color, Volume 2.
