Stacy Nathaniel Jackson was born in Los Angeles and attended Ramona Convent College Preparatory School for Girls in a former incarnation of his life. His artistic practice in multiple forms is an expression of ideas sustained over several decades: gender, beauty (the resistance of), self-discovery (truth tucked or hidden in plain view), and conflict. He is a Cave Canem poetry fellow and was the recipient of an individual artist grant from the San Francisco Arts Commission. Author of the chapbook Camouflage published by MaCaHu Press, his poems, plays, and visual art have been published in Black Arts Quarterly, Lodestar Quarterly, New American Writing, Foglifter, and The Georgia Review among others. As an African American transgender artist-activist, he has served on various community boards including mayoral appointee of the San Francisco Transgender Civil Rights Implementation Task Force, UCSF Chancellor’s GBLT Advisory Committee, San Francisco LGBT Community Center Project, and former board president of Fresh Meat Productions, a leading transgender and queer performing arts nonprofit. Stacy holds an MFA in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University, an MBA from UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, a BAFA in Studio Arts from the University of Southern California, as well as graduate coursework in sculpture at the University of Arizona.
