Today on Gay Magazine we’ve got two new stories for your reading pleasure. Up first, Carey Baraka’s essay on Jacaranda trees, their introduction into Kenya via British colonizers, their uneasy status as an invasive weed, and their incredible, undeniable beauty.

Then, we have Jennifer Neal’s essay about how speculative fiction ranging from ‘The Lord of the Rings’ to the works of Octavia Butler align with Black feminism.

You can check out every story Gay Magazine has published, too.

Thanks for reading.
