Our Story

Afros and Pixie Dust was born out of a need to highlight the people of color in the Disney community. We enjoy connecting with Disney fans of color who identify like us. We know that there are so many fans like us out there and we seek to bring that community together. Through the Afros and Pixie Dust Podcast, June Joseph, founder, speaks to other fans of Disney about their experiences and what they love about Disney and our community.

Meet The Team

The Afros & Pixie Dust Team consists of Disney fans of color from all over the world. They each bring a unique perspective to all aspects of Disney fandom.

June

Hi, I’m June. I’m a mom of two, wife, neonatal nurse practitioner, and Disblerd. I love to sprinkle a little pixie dust into my everyday life. Born and raised in NY with West Indian roots, my curls and style are a work of art and a reflection of my journey. I started Afros and Pixie Dust not only to share my love of Disney with the world, but to share with the world the stories of other Disblerds like me. My vision is to build Afros and Pixie Dust into a community site where Disney fans of color can connect so they don’t feel as isolated as I once did.

Nicole

Hola! My name is Nicole, the wife, and mother of the RoadTrippinWithTheRudes crew. I’m a NY native with Caribbean/Latin/European roots living in central PA. RoadTrippinWithTheRudes started our social media presence to connect with people like us and to change the narrative. Yes, Black Families do exist, Black Families do travel, and Black Families can love Disney. I take my fun, food, and the opportunity to connect with you very seriously. It is an honor to share my take on all things fandom, travel, adulting, and going to Disney to escape adulting. I look forward to your comments, insights, and suggestions. So, buckle up! We’re going on a road trip!

Kiersten

I’m Kiersten, an over-imaginative millennial geeking out in the middle of New Jersey. When I’m not pursuing my copywriting/marketing career, I’m sharing content inspired by my love of Disney and animated media. Whether it’s Disneybounds, casual cosplays, or blogging, I strive to create content that encourages nerds everywhere to unapologetically celebrate what they love. Plus, I enjoy proving how everyday Disney magic exists beyond the park gates.
