I have femme daddy issues.
Guess that’s what happens when both mom and dad are incarcerated half your life. You land up with a broke queer as fuck hotmess, anti-authoritarian, prison abolitionist weirdo like me.

Biking for No More Deaths

tierracita:

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!

Signal boost!

PDX QTPOC—room in a collective open! 

Feb 8th!

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!

I’ve put up too much, too long, and now I’m just too intelligent, too powerful, too beautiful, too sure of who I am finally to deserve anything less.

we may never touch queerness, but we can feel it as the warm illumination of a horizon imbued with potentiality….the future is queerness’ domain. queerness is a structuring and educated mode of desiring that allows us to see the future beyond the quagmire of the present….we must dream and enact new and better pleasures, other ways of being in the world, and ultimately new worlds….queerness is essentially about the rejection of a here and now and an insistence on potentiality or concrete possibility for another world.

Rest in Power Jose Esteban Munoz!!!

"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

  • Question: Hey! I was wondering if you or your followers know the history of the word "joteria", or the communities that use it. I'm starting a Queer org in El Paso, but I wanna use "joteria" to reflect our position on the border and to make sure that we're not centeri g white queerness. Anything you know would be super helpful! : ) - desert-gurl
  • Answer:

    I don’t have any answer off hand so I am going to publish this and see if anyone out there has an answer.
