Alanna is a black, lesbian coffee and wine snob. She can almost always be found outside, headphones in, doing random things. Sunshine is her energy source and has been known to power her to visit 15 different stores in one day because buying Home Goods is life. She works a corporate 9-5, but all her joy comes from building relationships with family and friends. Shy at first, but she warms up quickly. Also known to randomly burst into dance (she will in fact milly-rock on any block). Instant gratification is best, so flights>road trips…but down for adventure regardless. Don’t mind her face…it’s just naturally resting bitch-ly…but she’s probably really happy to be in your company. Let’s be friends!
Crystal is a queer, Black weirdo who is passionate about youth work, active listening, organizing for equity, sharing vulnerability and connecting with others, and eating dairy even though she’s lactose intolerant. She loves moving her body to a good beat, randomly breaking into song, affirming and supporting her friends, taking spontaneous trips to the beach at 3 am to watch the sunrise, and drinking hot tea while dramatically gazing at raindrops pelting her windowpanes. Outgoing and friendly, but at the core a heavy introvert, she will surprise with how fierce she becomes when speaking out her values or confronting harmful attitudes. You can find her writing in the park, snapping people up at poetry readings, checking out used book stores, fueling her growing caffeine addiction at a local cafe, or scheming about her next chance to galavant abroad solo.
Sofia loves long walks on the beach, slow motion running through meadows, and staring longingly into each other’s eyes. When she’s not being sarcastic you can find her making food, eating food, or talking about food. Other pleasant activities include meeting cats and dogs and never remembering (or asking) the name of the owner. Some indoor hobbies Sofia enjoys are Netflix, reading, working out, listening to music, and pretending not to be on Netflix. No one will ever make Sofia laugh as hard as her very self so don’t be self conscious.
Vincent jokingly identifies as a Butch Kween, because life is too short to conform to expectations of gender. While Vincent identifies and often presents as male, it’s not uncommon for him to rock nail polish, flamboyant cardigans, and oversized jewelry. You can find Vincent permanently affixed to the piano at Tavern on Camac, despite pleas from patrons to “let someone else sing.” Vincent once claimed he’s so extra that Mariah Carey’s lawyers sent a cease and desist. Ms. Carey’s lawyers did not immediately respond to requests for comment
Dredeir Roberts is aware the “e” before the “i” in her name is grammatically incorrect but thanks her mother for keeping “die” out of her name. Not only is she a momma’s girl, she’s a retired basketball playing baton twirler who would rather read books than be on Facebook. She is recovering from her series of unfortunate events, aka law school, and is the youngest person to regularly read physical copies of the newspaper. Currently, Dredeir is applying to Hillman College to study black girl magic and wishes to serve her country as In-House counsel to the Beygency.

He’ll stand with you as an activist and bake with you like Grandma. His hugs prove he’s both the friend you deserve and the one you need.
Neha likes moving in and out of genders (while subletting in androgyny). Being a non binary queer South Asian, they are always thinking about the need for intersectionality in feminism while buying an unnecessary amount of shoes. When they’re not looking at herself in the mirror they’re usually hanging out with friends, going to the gym, or ready to go out dancing. Here for your pettiness and lives to grab a drink and talk.
