Toronto

Alex Giamos

Alex aspires to be a witch, a mermaid, and a magical girl (#sailormoonforever), but is right now stuck on Level 22– Giantess. Sometimes she's not on the internet yelling about feminism, and if that's the case she's drinking way too much tea, devouring comic-books whole, and trying to get her mean beautiful cat to love her more. Spicy food always. ♥

Amarina Norris

Amarina has not only her own totally bitchin’ plus size fashion line & vintage shop (Ursa Major +) but also a sprawling collection of mega stylin’ eyeglasses.

Fiorella Morzi

Fiorella is a writer and adult literacy tutor. When she’s not working on her tea latte skills at David’s Tea, you’ll find her at her local TPL branch shamelessly borrowing books on everything from witches to feminism, or both. She really needs an iced beverage.

Geo Peck

Geo is a former line cook and current travel addict. There are few things more important to her than food, and in between dreaming of Iceland and ice cream, she's working on perfecting her home recipes. Unapologetic about the importance of a good meal, she is also unapologetic about what she refers to as her "pizza-butt."

Kirthan Aujlay

Kirthan is a social media specialist, pop culture junkie and Tumblr addict. When she’s not ranting about feminist issues on the internet she is planning her next Halloween costume, reading library books or eating some form of chocolate. Her life goal is to become a living version of Pinterest.
