Nayazha Coleman is a Black, queer, polyamorous activist, healer, and creator that holds a Bachelor of Science in Writing and Gender and Women Studies from Kennesaw State University. Her life research question lies in what her ancestors believed prior to colonization specifically looking at spirituality, identity, relationships, and education. She is heavily influenced by her Yoruban belief system, her background in Queer Theory, and Afro-futurism.
Based in the California Bay area, Nayazha currently serves as the Development Coordinator for a local non-profit that works at the intersections of environmental justice, prison reform, and holistic healing. As an AmeriCorps Vista member she has dedicated her life to the members of our community that are most often forgotten.
Sharing her varied degree of knowledge, Nayazha has presented at Kennesaw State University's Summit on Civil & Human Rights, Southern Fried Queer Pride, Sex Down South, and will be at South West Love Fest this April in Tucson, Arizona. She is ecstatic to have found her way to a community of beautifully melanated Black polys through Black Poly Pride and can't wait to convene in Chocolate City in June!
