An Interview With Period Powerhouse: Luz Miranda
Nadya Eddy (she/her)
|
8.23.2021

Luz Miranda (@youremynirvana) is a queer Xicana, feminist, painter, trauma-informed LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist-in-training, and activist who we advmire greatly for their period advocacy and conversations! Read this 5 min interview to get to know one of our favorite creators!

Introduce yourself? Who are you?

"I'm studying to get my master's in counseling at Northwestern University. I'm currently still training to be a therapist. Aside from being a student, I'm an activist. Some issues I'm passionate about, but are not limited to, are period poverty, feminism, sex education, and social justice concerning BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ communities. With that being said, I am also a Trevor Project volunteer."

What do you do?

"I got my BA in Studio Art so I'm a professional painter. I love creating content surrounding my passions and social media is an extension of my creative expertise."

How did you find your passion?

"Trial and error! Failed and regretted many things along my journey but I would've never known if it weren't for those challenges. I'm also queer and Latinx, so mental health advocacy was missing all throughout my childhood and adolescence. I want to be helpful to my community in spreading awareness on the importance of mental health."

How does menstruation exist in your life?

"I used to be ashamed of it, but now it is a very sacred part of my routine. I use it as a means to feel grounded as I am more self-aware of the phases of my mentrual cycle and when I am the most sensitive, creative, energetic, etc. I want others to know about this power as well and how breaking the stigma doesn't have to be so hard!"

Do you have a memorable first period story?

"I remember my first period happened right after church and I had white jeans on. :/ unforgettable!"

What advice would you give to young menstruators out there?

"Unlearning is hard. Especially when the world doesn't seem to be ready to make changes. That is why it is so brave and beautiful to be able to reclaim periods as unshameful and natural. Change is coming and now more than ever we need people to normalize bleeding from vaginas!"

What about August do you connect with?

"That it's sustainable, youth lead, and aesthetically pleasing! I want cute packaging when I'm changing my pad!"
