NEW VIDEO: “Learning How To Be A Better Trans Ally” - this one was so much fun! i hung out with my friend Janet Mock, & she graciously spent some time sharing some easy tips on how to be a better ally to the transgender community!! go give it some love & reblog to share with your followers.
Here’s the third piece in me and @janetsungart ’s series of annual collaborations! We wanted to draw our Haikyuu faves. We both did the undersketch, Janet did the lines, and we both worked on color! Come say hi at AX, tables C19 & C20.
NEW VIDEO: “Stonewall: The Story of Resistance” - today marks 48 years since the Stonewall riots, a resistance that many consider to be the start of the LGBTQ+ rights movement. i never learned our history in school, & for most queer kids, our history is still self-taught. that’s why i made today’s video.
to commemorate today’s anniversary, i’d love if you reblogged & spread the story of what happened 48 years ago & how it sparked a revolution.
I truly appreciate the whole, “you got this, you can be anything, you just have to believe” optimism, but I’m sorry Janet, I have the energy of a potato, and not even the productive ones who dream of one day being french fries.
“Until cis people - especially heteronormative men — are able to interrogate their own toxic masculinity and realize their own gender performance is literally killing trans women, cis men will continue to persecute trans women and blame them for their own deaths.
If you think trans women should disclose and “be honest,” then why don’t you work on making the damn world safe for us to exist in the first place?
The “I’d kill a woman if I found out” rhetoric is precisely why so many women hold themselves so tight — the stigma and shame attached to our desires need to be abolished.”
