The Creator

Shawna B.

 

It all started when…

A new way to celebrate and recognize the beautiful diversity of/in Blackness was born.

A way to speak to the eclectics, the artists, the misfits, the others, and everyone in between. Because, let's be honest, we are all at least one of those things...right?

I’m a queer & eccentric Earthling who creates spaces that speak to me and those like me. Those who are tired of not seeing their scene in Burque, those who want to be in spaces where code-switching isn't required/necessary. 

The Syndicate is that space. It's where your light can shine, where your presence is welcomed, and where good vibes flow freely.

The Right Hand

Kitty Kat AKA Kat

Then came the talented Kat. An event planner extraordinaire with flare, brilliance, and style to match - she’s the go-to for all things Syndicate related. She puts in her time, love and care to each event you see so thank ya girl the next time you see her.

A Cali bae living in ABQ she represents big, beautiful, stylish, sassy, smart and creative women of color. With a background in nonprofits AND higher education, she’s one to keep your eye on.
