Evette Dionne is a writer, editor and scholar. She writes and edits stories about race, feminism, popular culture and fashion. Her work has been published in/on the New York Times, Bitch Magazine, Bustle, The Root, Clutch Magazine, UPTOWN Magazine, VIBE Magazine, MIC, Refinery29, The Toast, and elsewhere.

When she's not tweeting, she's using theories like Black Feminist Thought and Critical Race Theory to examine Black female sexualities and pleasure within media texts, including film, television and music videos. She is most concerned with how Black popular culture reinforces and resists historical stereotypes of Black female sexualities, power and desire. Right now, she's working on a book chapter about Beyoncé. Yes, that Beyoncé. And it will be epic.

Evette is based in Denver.
