Nat Smith, Bookkeeper, DataCenter.
"Nat Smith is a light-skinned Black queer gender variant nerd. Nat loves camping, comix, wildlife, speculative fiction, and mathematical equations, and is proof that none of these things is antithetical to the hood. Nat is an anti-capitalist bookkeeper who only takes on radical non-profits and working class and/or social justice-minded individuals as clients. Nat has been known to associate with such dangerous organizations as Critical Resistance, Trans/Gender Variant and Intersex Justice Project and Laney Community College. Nat is doggedly pursuing a degree in wildlife biology/zoology and is hard at work on an anthology entitled Captive Genders, about trans and gender variant communities and the prison industrial complex (PIC), forthcoming next Spring from AK Press. Nat once made a short film about family and identity that has shown in 16 film festivals worldwide. It is now collecting dust. Nat believes that the struggle for liberation, while not involving the election of Obama must be present in all of the work/living that Nat does. You will find Nat championing piracy and challenging military intervention while at the wildlife hospital and casually dropping the “pic abolition” bomb while in line for spicy boneless buffalo wings at Lucky."
