Nickecia “Nick” Alder
Founder & Editor-in-Chief
Black Girl Fly Magazine
Nickecia “Nick” Alder arrived to Earth by way of Queens under the star Aquarius a mere 29 years ago, and she brings the classic cool individuality associated with these influences to everything she builds. Nick is Founder & Editor-in-Chief of Black Girl Fly Magazine and Co-Founder of Party Noire, two of the premiere destinations for #blackgirlmagic and #blackjoy. Striking the rarely mastered balance between culture savvy and solid research, she creates space in multiple senses of the word – digital and physical, the galactic and the everyday, future facing and resolutely in the now. Her spaces not only center, but also privilege, the queer spectrum and women of color, inverting the power paradigm with the precision of a social scientist and the compassion of your most trusted sisterfriend.
Sometimes affectionately called “Dr. Nick,” Nick is also Doctoral Candidate, training to become a clinical psychologist at Loyola University, with experience in leading workshops on wellness, mental health, and identity development.
