Some sweetly timed sweet dealings with the likes of dapperQ and the amazing #DisabiltySolidarity conversation on Twitter. Do check out some on-point ideas from the likes of Lydia Brown and Stacy Milbern. Such blessing to even virtually be in such company.
Decolonize this loneliness and isolation from the able-bodied ways, son! White supremacy lays down too deep in our crip beds and on our brown bodies. We’re worthwhile, I keep trying to convince myself, I keep reading such astounding people and honoring work of people like those in Sins Invalid. I keep breathing my exasperated sighs into the cusps of my loves who get pain or who rock with me when it’s passed midnight or my joints scrape to the grooves of rock salt. Remember, dear ones (& dear self), our bodies are our own homes and we can expand and expel as needed. Let’s expel that white supremacist and bootstrap dissection of us. Let’s do it with glory together. Let’s do tree psalms and the keen flagrance of the sky when clouds move reminding us we to be powerfully humble. Let’s be bated breaths in syringes, wheelchair shifting, blade slicing, madness climbing our skulls. Let’s be beyond those expectations we were never asked to help create.
Read quotes featured on Disability Visibility Project with tweet awesomeness from brown boi,

but they don’t want to address our work, lives, justice.” #DisabilitySolidarity #sdqrealness#sickanddisabledqueers #nosingleissueliving
