Portrait by Kaitlin Chan

J. Wu / 小文 (they/them/他)
creator of mixed rice zines

J Wu is a trans-disciplinary artist and zine maker from Taipei, based on Ohlone territory (Bay Area, CA). They self-publish zines that feature a mixture of voices in celebrating QTBIPOC resilience, and care deeply about building community with other queer and trans artists. In their own art practice, J finds joy in writing love letters, drawing portraits of chosen fam, and writing music to soothe their gay heart.

小文是一位酷兒藝術家,在台北長大的目前在加州自行出版小誌。小文喜歡收集各式各樣的作品,來慶祝酷兒‘非二元‘跨性別‘黑人‘原住民‘有色人種的生活故事。一起用小誌來互相保重,互相支持。

(正在把小誌翻譯成中文)
