McKenna Patterson Photography Author and social media influencer Mechanic Shop Femme is coming to Dallas MELISSA WHITLER | Dallas Voice Fellow Chaya Milchtein, known online as Mechanic Shop Femme, is going on tour across the country to promote her new guide on car ownership — except, instead of hitting the bookstores, Milchtein will be visiting LGBTQ-, PoC-, and women-owned mechanic shops.

She’ll be here in North Dallas at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 25, at Kwik Kar Marsh, 1049 Marsh Lane in Carrollton. With the automotive industry historically exclusionary to women and queer folks, Chaya Milchtein is working to make it more open and approachable.

Her work as a journalist made it natural for her to transfer her knowledge and experience to a book written, as she says, for everyone. “This book was written with every car owner in mind,” Milchtein said. “Even people who have been driving for a long time can learn something.” The guide covers everything from the process of buying a car to maintenance and repairs, accompanied by data and real-life stories.

The book tour was arranged by Milchtein herself with the goal of introducing local followers to a queer-affirming repair shop.
