Emily Budd (Art) is included in Stone Fruit Magazine: Issue 3, a zine on queerness and religion, centered on the theme of sanctuary. Stone Fruit is a submission-based zine centered on queer people's experiences with organized religion, faith, and spirituality. The goal of the publication is to present works that address issues with nuance, and that represent a broad range of experiences.

Additionally, Budd recently was interviewed by The Washington Post about her sculptural project, "Memorial for Queer Rhyolite, a temporary monument to dreams in the dust," which memorializes a 1980s effort to build a queer city in Rhyolite, Nevada. The article, "A ‘Gay Homeland’ Undone by Homophobia and Racism," by Diane Bernard, sheds light on the experiences of the founders, who were of mixed races, and highlights Budd's reformative monument as a new means to recognize and remember this important piece of LGBTQ history.
