Kris with a K” Henry (they/them/theirs) is a Jamaican nonbinary individual currently based out of Georgia. A UGA alum and self-proclaimed creative conjurer, Kris creates art in many forms, spiritual tools, spiritual services, and classes/workshops centering their works as a spiritual safe space for black queer and trans folx. They seek to create authentically empowering, ancestrally connected healing experiences that bring a sense of agency and sovereignty back to the historically marginalized.
Kris is currently involved in a Reparations effort called Healing for the Healers, a fundraising campaign to provide 6 month stipends to a collective of 9 Black healers who do needed pro bono healing work in the Black community.
