sorry there’s nothing cheery lately…I wanna draw a comic but this week/month is shaping up to be a little ridiculous. part of that ridiculousness is maybe cleaning up that queer ling textbook study from last semester for publication tho!!1! Also Audrey has a bajillion drafts but apparently doesn’t want to share with the rest of the internet. -s
In November 2013, a study revealed how queerpeople of color have the most stacked against them when it comes to getting by in the USA. They face the biggest challenges of any workers in the recession economy. The LGBT community is also more ethnically and racially diverse than the country as a whole.
The report, entitled “A Broken Bargain for LGBT Workers of Color,” was coauthored by National Black Justice Coalition, Service Employees International Union, Human Rights Campaign and others, and it outlines the hostile economic reality for queers of color.
While headlines celebrate public acceptance of LGBT people and passage of gay marriage, the study looks at the real life of queer and trans people of color — and how racial discrimination intersects with institutionalized homophobia and transphobia.
The study is groundbreaking because it’s a data-based look at what socialist feminists have long pointed out — that American capitalism has created layers upon layers of discrimination to keep wages low and sections of workers impoverished.
The story told in the charts and research is how the poverty of LGBT workers of color is connected to adversities at home and in school, as well as in the workplace.
I’m real tired of seeing skinny white kids painted as THE AVERAGE QUEER. Like please show me a curvy Indian agender kid from Brooklyn, a hispanic lesbian and her black girlfriend. A trans demisexual dude from Korea. GIVE ME SOMETHING OTHER THAN LANKY PALE PEOPLE WITH COLORFUL HAIR PLEASE GOD.
I will never stop linking to this article: Black People Make Up Largest Share of LGBT Community
Let’s stop pretending otherwise, OK Media?
new fun hobby: tell straight cis boys with short hair that you like their “pixie cut”
'cus I know you queerios are resourceful and shit. did I tell you about my resolution? but how do you eat burritos and wear lipstick. -s
I think I’ve seen posts about crayons being not the safest, or maybe it was about using paint for temporary tattoos …
Anyway, didn’t dig through a whole bunch of sources, but here’s one about crayons having lead (so does lipstick), so maybe don’t do this every day? Get some ripe berries and smash ‘em on your mouth, mmm. - a
