The Ignant Intellectual was Featured in Queer B.O.I.S.!!!

February 15, 2012

As many of you know, I am a Contributor to an amazing blog called Queer B.O.I.S. Recently, I had the privilege of being featured on the blog. Please enjoy!


:: QB Series :: Meet this BOI::

When we first began the QueerBIOS Project, we had a keen sense of some of the BOIS we knew needed to be involved.  Z, a self proclaimed cultural and social critic is one of those BOIS.  As a regular QueerBOIS contributor and talent scout, Z has brought to the QueerBOIS brand a uniqueness that is both highly studious and down right relatable.  Take some time to get to know one of our Favorite Bois, Z, The Ignant Intellectual, in their own words…

I am ‘Z’. I am a cultural & social critic. I am the bridge between the Hood and the Ivory Tower. I am unapologetically me. I seldom conform. I am highly conscious of my worth. I am a 504 Boi. I am a Spelman Dude. I am exceptionally inspired by the most non-traditional and socially-rejected of spaces. I love thinkers over those that simply regurgitate.  I have a very soft spot for the supposed arm pits of society –whomever and wherever they may be. I am a label-less genderphuker. I am a boy and a girl. I am neither a boy nor a girl. If you understand the last 2 sentences, I may possibly love you for life. I believe that despite the difficulties of relationships, the euphoric, warm, and fuzzy feelings of love can and should last. I am a full-time Drug & Alcohol Counselor at a residential treatment facility entirely for trans-gendered and gender variant adults. I am, ironically, a bartender. I am a co-owner/co-host and one-half of the mastermind behind a most beastly on-line radio show entitled Queer 2 the T based out of the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia, PA. I am the brainchild behind a developing blog entitled: ‘The Blog to the Proletariats: Where the Hood Meets the Ivory Tower’. I am a published poet/spoken word artist. I am a PhD program drop-out. I am my mother’s only child. I suggest you formulate no judgments, expectations, or pre-conceived notions of me; you will find yourself utterly disappointed. I do not debate my sexuality. I am a master procrastinator.

I have a personal style that varies from moment to moment yet is very reflective of my personality. I can go from what folk call Blippy (Black Hippy) to an old man in a Member’s Only jacket and Saddle Oxfords to an outfit inspired by GQ Magazine. I am most happy when I am able to create with no chains.
