[Description: a series of four panels show a range of #qpoc posing in their element. They range in size, skin tone, gender, sexuality, ability, status, & spirit. Every one of them is a #Virgo.]


This #FBF is dedication to the virgos who hustle, who plan, who add & sort the details, who calm (& attract the chaos). To @juliosalgado83: when I toured with your dear bear/osito #migrant heart, I’ve been blessed since. May your art be held & prodded with care! @aliciasanchez#qwoc thick snacks style femme fam. Your adventures, political honesty, always keep the homies & this world up. Please enjoy this world that you hold.

@whatsmanishdoing: responsible for many dynamic #qtpoc events with accessibility & #disabilityjustice on point. You create homes. everyone receives your goodness so swiftly, dear one. Hope for all that you give, you get tenderness & people honour that worth. @gbrlgrcrmn#queericonscreator & food extraordinaire, instantly when we chatted our earth chi-town ways emerged. Your exquisite art brings #qpoc to godly levels! So do your paletas. #qpoc#queer #qtpocsupremacy #virgosofcolor

(Excessive moaning) YOU are my joy (rubs belly in satisfaction & elevates swollen feets).” ‪#‎gendernonconforming‬ ‪#‎iliftwaffles‬ ‪#‎dissonance‬ ‪#‎brunchbuilder‬
