Bia Jackson is a Black queer, feminist and content creator from Richmond, Virginia with roots in White Castle, Louisiana. She was raised by a single mother in the Southside of Richmond and politicized by poor, small town, factory workers from Louisiana.

In 2017, Bia transitioned into the role of SONG’s Communications Associate. Bia believes in the power of narrative and storytelling to eliminate isolation, to build power and to reconnect Southern queer folks of color. Bia currently resides in Harrisonburg, VA, where she organizes, writes, and builds community.
