Excerpt:

Kay Ulanday Barrett, a Filipino writer who helped Salgado gather participation from many of the project’s subjects, agrees. “This project celebrates TPOC bodies and brilliance customarily erased in the LGBTQ mainstream,” they told The Advocate. “Our work and this project reminds us: migrant, black, disabled, fat, gender non-conforming, brown, and transfemme people run this shit and we must be honored daily.””

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.”
