Welcome! My name is Jas and I am the Brown Feminem. I started my advice column because I have a passion for helping others and I have found that often times, the best way to do so is to lend an ear. I offer my services as a public speaker and LGBTQ+ activist in addition to event planning and facilitating workshops and support groups. Please stay tuned for my upcoming children’s book as well!

I hope that what you find here helps you along on your journey and that you visit me again some time.
