Creighton Leigh is Philly-born and raised, but is currently a New York-based writer, speaker and organizer working and advocating at the intersections of Blackness, femmehood, queerness and fatness. She is a former sexual health educator who specialized in HIV counseling and testing. Creighton originally founded Voix Noire as a blog to create content that exposed misogynoir. As Voix Noire grew, Creighton saw the disparities within her community, and she realized that her mission needed to shift from writing to organizing.
Creighton paused Voix Noire and used her social media platforms to organize. The demand was so great that she eventually rebranded Voix Noire as a reparations-based platform. Her mission is to fill the gap and fulfill the needs and wants of Black women, marginalized genders and children. From universal income to grocery deliveries to emergency money needs, Creighton works tirelessly to secure funding to continue to support and serve the community. Creighton's goal with Voix Noire is to stand in the gap and do the work in unapologetically distributing reparations to the most underserved in our intentionally exploited communities.
