Emily is a queer, cisgender, white European settler working on unceded territory of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tslei-Watuth Nations. Her pronouns are she/her, and her honorific is Mx. 

As a member of the queer community, Emily works to stay updated in the LGBTQ2S+ community and discourse around accessibility, anti-racism, and anti-colonialist activism. Because language affects how we absorb and construct narratives, Emily prioritizes queer and political linguistic shifts in order to support marginalized communities. Stone Fruit rates are sliding scale for increased accessibility. 

Emily is especially interested in working on projects with queer, trans, or gender-diverse characters or populations, projects with cultural or artistic linguistic variations, and projects that work within marginalized populations. Stone Fruit practices collaboratively and ensures that your voice remains authentic. 

This space respects and honours sex workers, BIPOC, land & water protectors, all bodies, abilities, and genders.
