Tim'm along with two friends, Monte J. Wolfe and Erik Chambers, started this collective in 2006 as a way to utilize the arts to speak truth to power about experiences of black queer men living with HIV.
Tim'm is a co-founder of one of the most foundational and critically acclaimed queer hip hop collectives to date, featured in documentaries like Alex Hinton's "Pick Up The Mic" as well as The Yale Anthology of Hip Hop, and other works. Check out their "Best of" compilation here.
With a collective of other queer men in the South, most of them black queer men, Tim'm worked to bring attention to what it meant to be active allies to women challenging patriarchy and sexism, not just in general, but specifically exploring how queer men perpetuate gender and sex discrimination and injustice.
Tim'm's move to Atlanta in 2015 was largely guided by being selected to serve as a Programming Board member for this Institute bridging research and advocacy, nationally and internationally, with a specific focus on the American South.
Tim'm created a virtual portal providing various kinds of writing support from Academic papers or professional cover letters to biographies or press releases. Have writing or editing needs? Get it done.... WRITE NOW.
A founding director of Teach For America's LGBTQ Community Initiative, and Tim'm's principal job, he works to mobilize LGBTQ corps members, alumni, staff, and community members in the service of advancing safer and braver classrooms.
