LOVELY OF COLOR QUEER NEEDS YOUR HELP (please signal boost if you can’t donate ANY AMOUNT NO MATTER HOW SMALL HELPS!)

Nico, the tenderest queer I know, is trying to raise funds to get their top surgery. For those who don’t know, top surgery is an excessively expensive and immensely relieving process.

Nico spends their time working for a non-profit dedicated to transforming systems of oppression that affect farmworker communities. When Nico is not working, they spend their time painting lovely watercolors, reading subversive literature and making everyone swoon. 

Top surgery is an emotional, spiritual and physical necessity for this fine queer. The cost of this surgery is upwards of 7000 dollars. This is unobtainable with non-profit wages. Please donate whatever you can to help ease the financial burden of this life saving and altering procedure!

CeCe McDonald: ‘Prisons Don’t Keep Us Safe’

CeCe McDonald, a trans, Black woman, who spent 41 months in prison for defending herself against an attacker, recently sat down to talk about safety. She was in conversation with legal scholar Dean Spade and organizer Reina Gossett shortly after she was released from prison, and a clip of that conversation was just released on Vimeo. 

The three will continue the conversation on April 21 at Barnard College. You can register here

"Femininity in general is seen as frivolous. People often say feminine people are doing “the most”, meaning that to don a dress, heels, lipstick, and big hair is artifice, fake, and a distraction. But I knew even as a teenager that my femininity was more than just adornments; they were extensions of me, enabling me to express myself and my identity. My body, my clothes, and my makeup are on purpose, just as I am on purpose."

How many rules am I to break before you understand
that your double-standards don’t mean shit to me?
I know exactly what you say when I turn and walk away
but that’s ok cause I don’t let it get it to me

So the moral of this story is: Who are you to judge?
There’s only one true judge, and that’s God
so chill, and let my Father do His job

really tho why does no one talk about how important salt-n-pepa are? this track dropped in 1993 - they’ve been callin bitches out on their bullshit double standards for women waaaaaaay before most of us were even around. this a feminist /anthem/ and if you think any less then i suggest you hit the replay button real quick. 

like damn tho the sheer girl power that these girls preached was unbelievable. “push it” and “let’s talk about sex” both were female power anthems about seizing your sexual identity and not apologizing for shit. they pulled a collab of the fucking century with “whatta man” with en vogue, giving us a prime example of what can happen when to ballin-ass girl groups collide and work with each other, and /NOBODY/ has topped that yet. 

too many of yall are sleepin on the feminist classics that are these wonderful women - pay homage to the hip-hop queens that laid the ground work for all this shit and think about that the next time you wanna try and pit modern day artists against each other to see who’s “the baddest bitch.” you’re not helping anyone with that shitty attitude and not a damn one of these women would thank you for it. 

You have no idea how many hours I spent blasting this song. This was one of the tapes that I played too much, and had to buy a new one when it broke.

My name is Oliver, and I am a non-binary person (they/them/their). I have needed to medically transition for a while, but I have not had the funds for it, and still have a bit to go in terms of reaching my financial goal to be able to pay for top surgery, hormone replacement therapy, getting a letter from a therapist, and visits with an endocrinologist to be able to start HRT.

For a long time I’ve been firmly against asking other people for money to help pay for my top surgery and HRT, but the time has come where my lungs can’t take much more of wearing a binder every day- I’m constantly wheezing and coughing, and I’m not able to be as active as I need to in my life anymore.

That said, I have set a goal of $2000 to help me get to where I need to be to be able to begin my transition.

Thank you to anyone who has even so much as taken the time to read this.

Hey everyone, Oliver is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met and it’d mean a lot to me if you at least reblog this—I’ve known them a couple months and they already have helped me out immeasurably.
