Mason Goolsby was born in Charlotte, North Carolina. Growing up as a queer person in the “Bible Belt” brings unique hardships. Religious organizations and faith communities often ostracize those who live openly in this region of the country. His values, spirituality, and identity have been shaped by such experiences. He explores queerness, spirituality, religion, and sexuality through his design, art, and writing practices.
