To kick off my tour this month, I was hosted by Jourdan (left) & Maya (right) yesterday at Columbia University’s Queer Awareness Month’s Opening Reception! Not in the photo is Jess, an awesome undergrad who also organized the event!!! I had such a wonderful time talking on whiteness, anti-black racism, #disabilityjustice, diasporic longing, & more! After my keynote, people were incredibly welcoming with thoughtful questions and even more conversation, we were kicked out the venue!

My Potential (Read: All Fiction) Projects for Age 33

Based on various conversations with chosen fam, here are my potential (read: all fiction) projects for age 33 aka a few examples of events/workshops our communities actually need in real life: 1) i feel like i should write a book titled “Snapbacks & Hospital Socks: Sick Sad Steez.” (no. too much. alliteration.) 2) workshop: “Leave my bed FOR WHAT?! the myth of bootstraps, productivity, & worth.” 3) workshop: “White transmasculinity, bro: How TPOC get “overlooked” for paid jobs, partners, & resources.” 4) workshop: “How ableism fucks you over: It just does. 5) an interpretive dance: “Ah, reactionary agreements & the partners who have them!” 6) a cd compilation: “Fuck your music festival: why womyn & cissexism are obnoxiously violent.”
