I like how Diana frames this :)
These are a few of the pictures from the demonstration against Sharon Needles in Atlanta on 6/28/12. We had about 10 people with signs and another 6 or so handing out fliers with this image on one side:
and sources for more information about instances in which she’s been racist, transphobic, and flippant about perpetuating oppression.
If you’d like a copy of the flier to hand out at your demonstration, don’t hesitate to contact us!

Obligatory Snoop Dogg reblog of the day. Why is this the funniest thing we’ve seen… ever? Dying right now.
I know the exact thing upsetting me, I know why, and I also know I cannot do a single thing about it. Once I fully realize that, I’ll…
Reach out… there are many who love you… optionz abound!
I was drawn to tumbler today because there are youth on here contemplating self-harm… I wanted to let them know that I am working hard to make the world a better place for LGBTQQ & situated youth. I don’t believe things will just get better on their own; conversations, negotiations, and protests need to encourage society to ~ Make it better: Do something!
Now, as a youth advocate, I say that it’s not the youth’s job to teach hard-headed adults [unless they have a calling to do so]; and in many instances, it really is the adults’ job to instill knowledge and character in young people, [teachers, counselors, theologians, etc…] Regardless, I think it is the responsibility of all adults to be life-long learners [new & useful vocab…especially as related to QQ youth] and supporters of youth.
I just want all you tumblr-youth to know that I am fighting like hell to make it better; please hang in there. Please choose to be here long enough to experience the beauty of living. Your job is to focus on the foundations of you, as you gain a more solid footing, in this transient world!
with much peace & love,
