Dearest ,

Sometime last month you gave me your email so I could let you know when I launched my exciting (and strangely scary) new project.

I’m now writing to let you know that my blog has officially launched!

I created Disorient in hopes of building a thriving resource and community for intersectional feminism. To imagine a world free of racial, imperialist, gendered, sexual, and ableist violence.

I’ve blogged before but mostly about where I travelled and what I ate. This time I’d like to create something I can be truly proud of that’ll support and inspire fellow scholar-activists.

Things are still fresh on Disorient at the moment, but I have big plans. You’ll find a new post every Wednesday and Sunday for the remainder of the year with guides for intersectional feminist knowledge, practice, and self-care. In the meantime, please take a look at these posts:

Welcome to Disorient celebrates the launch of the blog and outlines my values, mission, and offers a sneak peek of the content soon to come.

What is Intersectional Feminism? is my definitive guide all about intersectionality theory — its history, practices, and criticisms.

I also have a Readings and Resources page with my growing collection of recommended books, essays, podcasts, and videos on intersectional feminism.

And if you have feedback on the blog or suggestions for what I should add, I’d love to hear your thoughts! 🧡

You’ve kindly shared your email with me to be informed about the launch of Disorient. Now that I’ve let you know, you won’t receive any more emails from me.

On the blog, you’ll find a newsletter called Moon Rites where subscribers will get updates, recommendations, and more personal behind-the-scenes insights twice a month every new and full moon. If you’d like to continue hearing from me about Disorient, I’d love it if you sign up.

As a thank you for trusting me with your email (again), you’ll receive a checklist for radical self-care as a gift.

Thank you for your kind interest and support in my voyage. I hope to see you inside our new community.

In solidarity and love,
Helena

P.S. Back when I got the idea for this blog, I consulted my tarot cards and a card with the Norse goddess Freyja appeared. I felt then that Disorient would be a conductor of transformational energy. Freyja reminds us of our inner strength, even if we don’t always realize it. She would tell us that we have the ability to change our fates and take back our light.
