Christel and Leah’s cross country bike journey in support of No More Deaths: No Mas Muertes
My dear friend Leah (a super rad qpoc nurse who has done past work with Decolonize Portland and Critical Resistance) is doing a cross country bike trip in part to raise money for No More Deaths, an organization that supports border work and the safety of those crossing who experience great risk and danger doing so.
This is a matter close to my heart, as you all know, and I am so proud of my friend for doing this fundraiser. We may not all have money to give but if you can all help spread the word, I would really appreciate it.
If you want to learn more about No More Deaths, I recommend checking out the info and links in this fundraiser link.
To a world without borders and racial violence!

PDX QTPOC—room in a collective open!
GUESS WHAT! The room is still open and we are getting close to the cut off point to manifest this qpoc collective magic! Do you know folks in portland? Can you network the shit out of this and send folks to me, tierracita, or djmextape?!
the house has hardwood floors/washer dryer in the basement/ a huge garden with raised beds, rasberry bushes, a gas stove with two ovens , is centrally located, near several frequent service bus lines, AND owned by a queer person of color. AND 515 includes all the utilities!
again, please support the housing grind of qpoc who do hella community work and are in need of stable housing!
Jrahrah and djmexxx-tape are the folks you’d be living with!
Jot@s! Help make this brown house happen for these folks! Spread the word!Via Tierracita

"Queerness is a longing that propels us onward, beyond romances of the negative and toiling in the present. Queerness is that thing that lets us feel that this world is not enough, that indeed something is missing. Often we can glimpse the worlds proposed and promised by queerness in the realm of the aesthetic… Queerness is essentially about the rejection of a here and now and an insistence on potentiality or concrete possibility for another world."—Jose Esteban Munoz
