#Repost @the_citylion (@get_repost ) ・・・ As reported by @nytimes , Dump Truck’s Department of Health and Human Services has released a memo that takes an aggressive stab, attempting to erase transgender and intersex humans. They seek to negate gender identity’s role in Title IX and apply an archaic and false definition of sex as “either male or female, unchangeable, and determined by the genitals that a person is born with.” This will be used as a means to deny people the right to medicine, medical procedures, and documentation. It will also be used to prevent trans people from being protected from harassment. Not all trans people seek to be validated within the state’s eyes, but point blank this is a matter of physical safety and protection. The memo also states that in scenarios of conflict genetic testing will be used to confirm sex. Intersex people — by literal, scientific, and medical standards — defy this definition. If you consider yourself an ally to the LGBTQ community — you have to stand up for trans and intersex people. Stand up physically. Stand up financially. Stand up politically. STAND UP PUBLICLY. If you’re gay and are or have been married it’s because trans & intersex people stood up for you. If you feel comfortable holding your partner’s hand in public it’s because trans & intersex people stood up for you. If you believe in your sexual and reproductive health and rights, trans & intersex people have *always* stood up for you — even when in many circumstances being trans means effectively rendering oneself unable to have children to gain access to state sanctioned documentation and papers. Trans people have been told to wait, that “the time for trans rights will come.” But rights aren’t just handed over. They’re fought for, while staring straight into the face of unbelievable authority. Be a trans ally. Be an active agent of change and don’t allow this or any administration to erase us. We will always exist, but existence and equity are not one in the same. Organizations tagged in post will gladly welcome your donation or action in any capacity.

Yesterday was phenomenal. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a blubbering mess the moment I saw Dee in her dress. @loveleedeeee you are by far the most beautiful bride I have ever see and @ryancheung9 you were pretty darn dapper, too. It was a night of tears and hardy laughter - gahhh it was so superb being surrounded by Cedar Heights peeps. Missed and love you all terribly ♥️. . . Photo cred to @alyssa_jaye where I was told to look to the left and “think of something funny”. Look at those voluptuous chins ;). . . #weddingseason #wedding #mybestfriendswedding #workpals #dapper #yegtoyyz #nonbinary #nonbinaryfashion #nonbinarypride #gendernonbinary #suspenders #queer #queeraf #queerdo #theythem #queersofig #queersofinstagram

Our great week of planning and prep work continues with the Three of Wands from the #vertigotarot and today's #dailytarot . The past few days though have been all about mapping and discipline. It's a little bit easier to plan for the Long Haul today, as that fire and passion that ignites our life kicks into high gear. Now that you see where you're going, get excited! Definitely take the day to get and be prepared for those next steps, but let that natural Energy High take you the rest of the way. #tarotoftheday #tarotreadersofig #queer #queertarot #queering #advice #queeringthetarot #queersofig #tarotpreneur #decklust #witchyqueer #witchyqueersofig #witchesofig #witch #tarotreading #wands #threeofwands #saturday #lgbtq #magick #energy #psychic #divination #tarot
A big thank you to everyone who came out to our first @Bare_Stories talk with the ever-wonderful and legendary @glowmamiii. Thank you for being vulnerable and forthcoming with your story. My heart is full and will be for sometime from all the heartfelt, funny and insightful moments that made last night such a dream. Thank you to the thoroughly engaged audience (I mean we had Zanele Muholi in the audience 😍🤷🏾‍♂👏🏾✨) and to @dflwits for coming on board and helping make yesterday successful.

It was insightful, it was funny and it was heartfelt.

I will drink more water because I can and used to want to and still want to be and simply fucking should be a model, along with the rest of my dreams #queer #queerboy #queerboi #gendernonbinary #genderisasocialconstruct #queersofinstagram #queers #queersofig #nonbinary #gaydreams #queerdreams #aspiringmodel #queermodel
Remember when I asked y’all if you were ready to learn about flavonoids? Well I tried to do research on them and came up with very little information. There’s still so much learning to be done but with the legalization of cannabis (shout-out Canada) we’ll definitely be hearing about new studies very soon. What researching DID help me understand though was that we’ve been classifying our cannabis all wrong!! As much as I want to believe I’m a “sativa person” I think we gotta admit that sativas and indicas are pretty arbitrary classifications now. After centuries of hybridization cannabis can’t be categorized with antiquated science anymore. By this I mean, we understand so much more about cannabis than we did before. I’ve gone from wondering what strain I’m smoking to thinking about what properties I’m smoking. Take into account the space it was grown in, what kind of nutrients went into that grow, the differences in strain phenotypes (variation of genes), the temperature, seed sourcing, organic or non-organic methods. LIKE YALL it’s seriously a different “strain” every time you smoke. Two Gorilla Glue #4 ’s from two different growers will be a different experience for a host of reasons! For example I like strains that are fruity, tropical, flowery bc they alleviate my depression. Scents of lemon can make me anxious and have actually exasperated some manic symptoms when I’ve been going through it. Scents of orange can be too much for my mental too but when they’re mixed with flowery or piney scents it’s usually a great ride. I wouldn’t know this if I didn’t 1) ask questions and 2) consume mindfully! AND you’re ALLOWED to be that^ pretentious about your weed. You’re ALLOWED to ask if it’s sun grown or indoor. You’re allowed to ask if it’s local and it SHOULD BE b/c who wants reject cannabis from legal-state growers when we could be stimulating our local economies. If you’re weed is bad SAY SOMETHING. It’s our medicine and we’ve let capitalism over take our industry enough. Let’s be conscientious with our medicines and our grow and set a standard. More on this soon~ #rantover

“I was in bed with someone else when she called, a couple of years later. I jumped out of bed, my lover forgotten.

I am quite excited for my conversation with @Glowmamiii on Thursday 6pm at University Corner for @Bare_Stories on being Trans, Black & Bold in Joburg. I hope to see you all (well, most of you) there! A big shout to Khwezi for this and other photos snapped this day. We got hot sauce in our bags swag.
Whose ready? 👻🎃 need suggestions for this years’ costume! . . . #halloweencostume #mariobros #halloween
Immediately after this picture was taken, we both turned to each other and swore that we had the perfect caption and therefore got posting rights. When we revealed to each other what the caption was, it turned out to be the same damn thing 😂 So, without further ado, our caption for this photo is "You're the apple of my eye!"... How terribly unoriginal are we?!? 😅 . . . #loveislove #girlswholovegirls #queercouple #queersofig #lovewins #outgirls #bisexualpride #lesbianpride #pride #bigirlsofinstagram #pnwgirls #pnw #2rainbeaus #outandproud #awkward #loveofmylife #ilym #wce #myperson #proud #proudtobehers #fall #footpop #kissme
The joys of face-swapping with @iamjordanbellamy , forgetting about it and finding the picture in your phone months later 🤣🤣🤣🤣
The grass is always greener on the other side is what they say right? Appreciating what I have and what I’ve already accomplished. ✨ #alwaysstriving #purposedrivenlife
Saying goodbye to my lack of motivation. Big things ahead ✨#selfcare #ichooseme

#dailytarot for Single Card Sunday 10/14 with the #nextworld #tarot today. The Lovers are an archetype of love & choice--choosing to love in spite of fear in the first place, making decisions with our loved ones in mind, and moving on when it all turns sour are all traditionally indicated here. Look at this image in this deck though; there is generosity and reciprocity and there is ACCEPTANCE of generosity and reciprocity. That too is a choice. And one you should make today.

This little book and the practice it represents is making ripples in my life. I've been doing this for the last month. Every night at 10pm I have a notification that reminds me to write down 3 things I'm grateful for that day. It might be a really good meal a PA made for me, kind words from a friend, a really great new herbal tea, how the light cast particular shadows through the window that day. At the end of each week I also write down any extra things like small achievements - writing to a friend, drawing something, sitting up a little longer. It's really easy to fall into despair whilst bedbound. It's scary and demoralising. But taking time for gratitude is so important for me at this time and shows me all the moments of beauty and connection (also thanks @curiuser.and.curiuser for the stickers on the front of my journal!) . . #gratitude #gratitudepractice #gratitudejournal #queer #queersofig #cripplepunk #spoonie #mecfs #chronicillness #invisibleillness #disability #bedbound #housebound #millionsmissing
