“A map for finding your voice and using it in service of colleagues, communities, family, and fellow humans; I can’t think of a better map to carry with you at this time, at any time.”

–Tania Katan, Co-Creator of #ItWasNeverADress and author of Creative Trespassing


Being an ally is one of the most important aspects of my life. Social Justice has never been an easy thing to fight for, but it has gotten exponentially harder since 2016. It’s so easy to become overwhelmed. This guide helps me feel empowered, and makes positive change seem less daunting. As a single mother of a cisgender, white, most likely straight male, my job as an ally has become that much more important. Not only do I feel the responsibility to stand up for and behind marginalized people, but I also have to teach my son how to do the same. Mostly my role as a parent seems to be to unteach him the lessons he learns out in the world every day. Our culture tells him wherever he looks that he has more rights and privileges than almost every other group. Road Map for Revolutionaries provides an excellent jumping off point for me to better understand and explain our positions and responsibilities in our culture and gives me practical steps for getting us both involved in making the world a better place.

—Daisy Eagan, Actor, Writer, Activist

Anti-Bride Series

Anti-Bride Series

Chronicle Books — 2002-present

Creator and Co-Author

Anti-Bride — 3-book internationally published, bestselling series— the first voice in the alterna-bridal pop cultural space — since 2002, remains the longest selling bridal title in the history of Chronicle Books.Anti-Bride was the first wedding book series to ask the question: ‘if everyone wants a wedding that’s different, then why are they all the same?’ A rebel cry in a sea of tulle and pearls, the series politely nudged the wedding industrial complex off it’s throne, onto it’s tulle-covered derrière, and ushered in a new era of DIY couples who for once, believed that their taste rivaled any hot shot wedding planner (and with far more originality). Anti-Bride, in trademark ‘Sex Pistols Pink,’ continues to lead charge on behalf of emancipated and engaged couples, internationally. #trustyourself #honoryourstyle
