dear anons.

we have and never will be an advice blog. 

if you read the description it says this tumblr is dedicated to talking about intersectionalities of racism and queer politics. 

there are other people out there who are better qualified to answer your questions, especially the questions that have nothing to do with racism. 

ciao. 

p.s. also, we hardly post here anymore anyway.

ALERT: JUST RECEIVED WORD THAT

BIA Livestock Impoundment crews are confiscating sheep, goats, horses, cattle belonging to the Dine People of Big Mountain/Black Mesa, Arizona right now. Human rights violations against traditional Dine (Navajo) taking away one of their major food sources as well as wool essential to their livelihood.

Please flood the office of Robert Carolin and tell him the elders need to eat during the winter and these confiscations are WRONG! Slow motion genocide in action. This must be stopped!
… 
Mae Tso, Bessie Begay and Pauline Whitesinger are those whose names i have been given who are being impacted. We can’t let them get away with this!

We cannot fight for liberation without a deep, clear understanding of disability, ableism and disability justice. The bodies of our communities are under siege by forces that leverage violence and ableism at every turn. Ableism is connected to all of our struggles because it undergirds notions of whose bodies are considered valuable, desirable and disposable. How do we build across our communities and movements so that we are able to fight for each other without leveraging ableism?

I imagine a world where our organizing and activism is less segregated, where our movements and communities are accessible and don’t participate in the isolation of disabled communities. I imagine places where we fight for whole and connected people, families and communities.

# love

Coming home. Our youth and our elders express the same desire: “A place to feel at home, and loved and wanted.” It is with great love, honor and respect that we write to introduce (or reintroduce) you to the MobileHomecoming Project: A Queer Black Experiential Archive. We, Julia Roxanne Wallace of Queer Renaissance and Alexis Pauline Gumbs of BrokenBeautiful Press, have decided to dedicate the next phase of our lives to collecting and amplifying the social organizing herstories of Black women who have been refusing the limits of heteronormativity and opening the world up by being themselves since the 1980’s and before, bringing home back to our communities through interactive community building, community media and community education.


This is a spiritual journey full of lust and discovery.  This is immersion in legacy. This is a celebration of how boldness survives the moment of its need.  This is an intimate embrace with a living herstory that traces pathways between our lungs, called laughter, called stillness, called sigh.  This is a dance, a prayer, a baptism in hope.  This is how we know who we are.  This is how we live forever.

The “desires” for a better life for some are always already predicated on the permanent structural abeyance of the collective unmeet needs of the many –the rabble. The asymmetric relationship between sanctioned elite, normalizing desires and the subsidizing of these desires by mass unmet needs are at the heart of this society.Edgar Rivera Colón
