Sade Petlele

Sade Petlele is a 20-something black queer femme (magic) living in Toronto. Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, they lived in Johannesburg, South Africa for most of their teens. They came to Toronto in 2012 (and basically love it here).

Sade spends most days making that customer service money and desperately trying to graduate from the University of Toronto. They dabble in trying to teach themselves: graphic design, crafting, pen and pencil sketching, (make up?)

A lot of their time is spent figuring out their place in a big and complex African Diaspora, as well as learning their untaught history/identity.

Likes: white wine, SZA, queerness, Afrofuturism, witchcraft, box braids

Dislikes: inauthentic allies, most condiments, people who interrupt a lot, anxiety, racism

Sometimes they post cute sketches + selfies on instagram! @ohheyitsjones
