My Story

Naomi Harris is a graduate from Bard College at Simon's Rock (major: African American Studies and Theater for Social Change- a self constructed major combining Sociology and Theater). Theyre also a National Theater Institute alum of the Eugene ONeill Theater Center (and a current Spring 2020 Advanced Playwright) as well as an aspiring Professional Dominatrix. They have long been a poet and now playwright, lyricist and librettist. One of their main goals as a writer is to aid in the alleviation of stigmas and stereotypes regarding mental illness in the Black community and to raise awareness and create more access to mental health resources, especially for Black and other LGBTQ+ youth of color. They are also an advocate for the safety of sex workers, specifically within the BDSM communities and are currently writing a musical (Club Leather Queen) about Professional Dominatrices who are queer and of color. They completed a Playwriting 102 course at the New York Theatre Workshop with instructor and renowned playwright Kate Moira Ryan. Among their works are Wounded Skyes, Glitter Bracelets, Take a Number and Wait, When I Grow Up I Wanna Be…, and All the Conversations You Wished You Had, But Never Did. Though they don't really know what they're doing with their life currently besides writing and washing dishes in a restaurant, Naomi is currently looking at graduate schools in New York and London.

Sexual Orientation
iSexual orientation describes a person's enduring physical, romantic, and/or emotional attraction to another person.


Gender Identity
iOne’s internal, deeply held sense of gender. Some people identify completely with the gender they were assigned at birth (usually male or female), while others may identify with only a part of that gender, or not at all. Some people identify with another gender entirely. Unlike gender expression, gender identity is not visible to others.

iRacial identity is the qualitative meaning one ascribes to one’s racial group, whereas ethnic identity is a concept that refers to one’s sense of self as a member of an ethnic group. At their core, both constructs reflect an individual’s sense of self as a member of a group; however, racial identity integrates the impact of race and related factors, while ethnic identity is focused on ethnic and cultural factors. We celebrate our Keys’ intersectionality and understand that creating one’s racial/ethnic identity is a fluid and nonlinear process that varies for every person. Many folks will identify with more than one background while others will identify with a single group more broadly.
