Recently, Michele has started working with writers, editors, and publishers as a sensitivity reader. As a queer first-generation Ukrainian Jewish American reader, for a fee, they can read your book, comic, or script with queer/Jewish/Slavic representation and help identify any biases, stereotypes, harmful tropes, or inaccuracies in mind, as well as provide useful tips on creating more accurate, authentic representation.
Below are the following areas they can consult on:
- Jewish Identity/ Culture/ Antisemitism (Especially North American diaspora)
- Ukrainian/Russian/Slavic Culture
- LGBTQIA+ Identity (Especially Asexual/Aromantic)
