“Oh, how seldom we belong but how elegant our kiss…”- Norma Jean

Born in Chicago and raised in Metro Detroit, Christina Long received her MFA in Printmaking from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2012 and is also a violinist for NYC’s New Amsterdam Symphony Orchestra. Being heavily involved in the Metal community for over a decade, she cares about promoting the many women of color who love heavy music genres.

#BLKGRLSWURLD is a quarterly zine run by Christina Long and her younger brother and sister since 2013. As a trio of artists and writers they are known as Trifecta Studios. Being young African American metalheads sharing their love of the Metalcore music scene, they share footage from live shows and host open calls for art and prose. The zine is free to download online.
