Nia King is a freelance journalist, author of Queer and Trans Artists of Color: Stories of Some of Our Lives, and host/producer of We Want the Airwaves podcast.
"King’s interviews serve not only to document the existence of marginalized cultural creators, but assert the power and vibrancy of queer and trans artists working today." - KQED
"When Nia sent me the draft of our interview, I realized how much knowledge I had to share on self-care, sex work, and harm reduction, and how I wasn’t talking about these things enough. That’s how I know Nia is an incredible interviewer – she knows how to ask questions that give space for brilliant answers." - Lovemme Corazón
“Nia King has passionately sought to archive the experiences of queer and trans people of color who are committed to art as a tool for political change. Her work with QTPOC artists on her podcast ‘We Want the Airwaves’ is an important and innovative contribution to the oral history record, not just for queer and trans people of color, but for everyone.” -Toi Scott
