Mickaela B

Senior National Organizer
Pronouns: They/Them

Micky B is a Black Trans Femme using cultural organizing to make liberation irresistible. Micky descends from the 1st free Black welders in Southwest Georgia where they spent their childhood summers. As a young person, Micky’s political awakening was grown through Black drag queens, Black Queer men living with HIV, and Black women on the front lines of reproductive justice. In 2015, Micky B co-founded “Southern Fried Queer Pride” (SFQP), a queer art festival turned art education non-profit. Through SFQP, Micky explores the nuanced intersections of queer performance and organized resistance. Micky is a member of Southerners On New Ground, 2018 Atlanta Pride Grand Marshal, and 2019 House of Pentacles Film Fellow.

Micky has organized trans communities across the South as the 1st lead of the TLC@SONG program. In their previous role, Micky co-organized demonstrations against HB2 in NC, held a Trans leadership summit in Nashville, TN, and published “The Grapevine” a community report of pressing issues facing TGNC southerners. Currently, Micky is a “National Organizer” for the Transgender Law Center. In this role, Micky coordinates a coalition addressing solutions to criminalization, lead by Black, Indigenous, and Migrant Trans leaders. Micky is simultaneously building leadership skills, networks, and healing justice for Black Trans Femmes, through the “Black Trans Circles” project, founded by Raquel Willis.

Micky B is a proud bisexual Scorpio living and loving in Atlanta, GA. Fun fact: Micky loves fried plant-based foods after a long day of voguing in resistance to the police state.
