About Crissle

Writer Crissle West moved to New York City in 2012 in search of the meaning of life and neighbors who believe in gun control. Born in Louisiana and raised in Oklahoma, Crissle is a half-hearted lesbian who enjoys spending countless hours watching Beyoncé performances online and pretending that updating her Tumblr is an acceptable substitute for writing. Her work has been published in ESSENCE magazine and she has appeared as panelist on gender identity & sexuality. Crissle’s essays can be found on her eponymous website, updated biweekly (maybe).
