Who’s on the board? Say hello to Marlena Chertock


Marlena Chertock is the new Communications Coordinator. She joined the board in March 2018. Read on to learn more about her.

  1. What do you like to write? I write poetry mostly, about the body, chronic pain, disability, and being a woman. But I also write short stories about climate change, women who like to cosplay, queerness in space, and more.
  2. Where do you live? Washington, D.C.
  3. What’s your favorite LGBTQ-related book or book by an LGBTQ author? I really loved Danez Smith’s [insert boy]. That was a powerful read.
  4. If you could have any superpower, what would it be? I really wish I could fly on a broomstick or just be able to get to places faster. The travel time really takes a lot out of me. And I love Kiki’s Delivery Service, so that’d just make me even more like Kiki.
  5. Coffee or tea? Milk or dark chocolate? Print or e-reader? Tea and dark chocolate all the way. And I find that I read more print books, but can also read more news articles online than in print. Weird.
