Sasha-Gay Trusty is an Arts and Culture editor living creatively in Atlanta with roots in the countryside of Jamaica, where she was born and spent her early childhood. Having this duality in her background gives her unique cultural experience, which inspires every aspect of Sasha-Gay’s life – from her educational path and career aspirations, to her lifestyle habits and spirituality.
All of these influences, along with her curiosity and passion, birthed the Quaint Revolt publishing and retail concept. Sasha-Gay has always been fascinated with and stimulated by the arts. Some of her earliest memories are how artistic expressions played on her senses, how it made her feel. Words, images, sound and movement – those things always impressed upon Sasha-Gay. There was no way she wasn’t going to work in, or adjacent to, creative industries.
Sasha-Gay graduated from GSU for the second time this May with a BAS in Journalism and minoring in Anthropology. Since then, she’s jumped into the role of Entrepreneur and Freelancer with no regrets. She is now a founding member of The Lola, and a member of The Gathering Spot. However, she developed a knack for shared workspaces right here at LaunchGSU, where she is still heavily involved. On the horizon is publishing our first print issue, curating the coinciding product line and building a hybrid magazine-shoppe app experience. These concepts have been in ideation for a few years, so she’s excited to finally begin turning them into tangible goods.
