Johnnay is a biracial Black lesbian, proudly hailing from Minnesota. Before joining Astraea, she worked in Development at BRIC Arts and Media supporting the Membership team for BRIC Celebrate! Brooklyn and BRIC House. Drawn to Astraea’s compelling mission, she is thrilled to be working at a queer feminist organization that is shifting power to LGBTIQ communities locally and globally.
She holds a B.A. in Communications and Justice and Peace Studies and is passionate about the intersections of art, queerness, and social justice. In her free time, she enjoys exploring New York City, marveling at art anywhere she can find it, and giggling.
