Sooo I’m a finalist for Oakland’s Queer Idol. I’ll be competing for the title and $500 at Oakland Pride at the end of this month! I’m so excited! (If you live in the Bay and plan on going to pride show me some love!!!) I haven’t been singing in recent years and my friends forced me to come out for this competition and ….. here I am! Enjoy! Let me know what you think :) 

For the morning crowd :)

CAN WE PLEASE TALK ABOUT THIS SUPER SWEET ICE-CREAM AD LESBIAN LOVE STORY WITH LILY ALLEN AS THE CUPID

Look, it’s 8 minutes of queer love story that isn’t about being queer and how terrible it is. Instead their problems are perfect rom-com problems. This is what I’m talking about.

Give me a hundred thousand versions of this. I’ll pay you. I’ll give you my soul for these two in SPACE.

ahhh so cute

"No pride for some of us without liberation for all of us. Portrait of Marsha "Pay It no Mind" Johnson, a mother of the trans* and queer liberation movement. She fought at Stonewall and dedicated her life to helping trans* youth, sex workers and poor and incarcerated queers. We honor her legacy by supporting trans women of color to Live + Lead."

it’s interesting but also terrifying to see the ways that capitalism has shaped our language and how we talk about bodies. can you be useful? can you be a productive member of society? can you work? can you make money? that is all this comes back to. so much ableist and fat phobic rhetoric is, at its core, does your body enable you to produce capital. if not, then you are useless and don’t deserve humanity. 

And also how the body makes you a good consumer. Marx does such an incredible job of talking about the body within a capitalist framework in Estranged Labour. For example:

The worker becomes all the poorer the more wealth he produces, the more his production increases in power and size. The worker becomes an ever cheaper commodity the more commodities he creates. The devaluation of the world of men is in direct proportion to the increasing value of the world of things. Labor produces not only commodities; it produces itself and the worker as a commodity – and this at the same rate at which it produces commodities in general.

I think of this section in relation to the body, to ableism, and to how even, even as identity politics has moved marginalized identities into more visibility, they are all enveloped into the capitalist machine. This has been notably discussed regarding the LBGT community. (If only Marx was more aware of gender!)

The world’s largest communal same-sex wedding ever took place this Sunday, when around 130 same-sex couples participated in a mass wedding in Rio De Janeiro. While Brazil’s new marriage equality law has not been officially passed, some offices have already begun accepting marriage license applications from same-sex couples. Love it. (via The Advocate)

Being bi has given me what seems to be an unusual way to engage the world and empathize with those who see things differently. For me, that is a quality of spirit given by God.
