Fight our administration's hate, now. (external)

Link goes to Lambda Legal’s donate page. So many people need you to do it, if you’re here and you have a spare buck or two. I’m really tired of making these posts, but our administration wants to eliminate trans people, one way or another. Frankly, I believe they want to eliminate all queer people, but trans folks are the low-hanging fruit right now. I’m not here to contribute to the infighting, but trans men, trans women, trans enbies… isolated in the fight. And the administration knows that. They know that it’s a weakness. Fuck Jeff Sessions and his fucking memo. Fight.

Fight.


A call to donate to Lambda Legal (external)

Well, bad horrifying news out of the White House today, no surprise there. Lambda Legal is a 501(c)3 legal organization fighting for the civil rights of queer and HIV positive folks. They do good work, and have already committed to fight this act of bigotry. Link in the header is to their donate page, they’re top on my to-donate list at the moment. Additionally:

Try to take care of yourselves, all. ⚧


Breaking Binaries (external)

Wonderfully written article about intersectionality catching up with feminism, particularly in the world of classical composition. What’s interesting to me is that that’s sort of the surface narrative here, but it’s really about marginalized groups trying so hard to get their voices heard, their tiny slices of power, that they forget other marginalized groups that are fighting alongside them. It’s kind of a refreshing article, as it’s not about TERFs or any sort of intentional exclusion necessarily… More the collateral damage of little wins, the ease in which we get caught up in them.

Site is behind some kind of paywall or something, so hopefully the reader hasn’t read two articles on ‘Van’ before. Not sure if that is in a month, or a year, or ever… pretty unclear. Just block cookies, I guess.


Many organizations need support now; Trans Lifeline is one (external)

I haven’t really known what to write or think or do since last Wednesday, but I’m hoping to populate these pages with some more puzzles and game development in the coming days. Attempt to re-channel some of my energy into creating things that might bring a touch of joy. In the meantime, there was one thing I immediately realized – many trans men, women, and youth across the nation were going to be hurting, they were going to be terrified. Trans Lifeline is a crisis hotline for transgender people, and they experienced a record number of calls following the election results. A lot of organizations need help right now, and this is one of them. ⚧
