More About IFRD Designer Porsche Taylor
As a rider with a background in historical research, Porsche Taylor became curious about other women who blazed a trail in motorsports and how they evolved in the new millennium. In her research, she found a lack of representation of women of colour in motorsports. In her research, she found a lack of representation of women of colour in motorsports. Seeking to fill this void, Porsche became the Founder and Editor-In-Chief of Black Girls Ride Magazine an inclusive celebration of all women who live to ride, featuring riders, racers, product reviews and riding events.
Founded in 2011, Black Girls Ride now celebrates eight years, and has expanded to include female riding workshops and events, including the Beautiful Bikers Conference. Since her early college days in the 90’s, Porsche honed her skill as a self-taught graphic designer, and developed expert skills in Adobe Photoshop, illustrator and InDesign. Inspired by Vicki Gray and her global network of female riders, she proudly offers her t-shirt design for International Female Ride Day 2019.
