Last July, I, along with three other lovely women, Lauren, Sarah and Claudette, created the foundation for an online queer publication called The Human Experience (T.H.E.). You can read the mission here: http://the-humanexperience.com/mission/
We’re bringing T.H.E. back & bringing it to fruition.

This internship is virtual based. You can work from your bed, your kitchen, the bathroom, your backyard, the coffee shop, the park, the beach, an exotic island, in an airplane, while co-piloting on a road trip – wherever you have wifi.
