I am April Cheri (pronounced shir-ee) and this is home for the many ways that I participate in relationship with life. You won’t find any niches or fancy branding here. I don’t just disobey the rules, I refuse to play the game altogether. What you will find here is a complex human with many interests and ways of relating to the world.
I am a Transgressive Woman by cultural standards and I take immense pride in this. Transgression is my road to freedom. I am fat and body neutral. Intersectionally feminist. Sex positive and a former erotic party producer. Kinky submissive masochist. Femme (she/her). Queer and married to a queer/ genderqueer person. Disabled by Fibromyalgia. Learning how to live as a birth mother in an unusually open adoption, while simultaneously learning how to be an empty-nester. I was a teen and single mom to two queer children of color who are now young adults following their dreams.
I am a creator, former non-profit professional, and community builder living on the margins both by choice and cultural imperative. I delight in living out on the edges of culture where humans are subversive, weird, intense, and beautiful. I learn and grow in the spaces where humans are exploring everything that is possible, especially in the realms of art and human connection. I hope you’ll join me out here where we are dreaming the future.
