I am Black, queer, nonbinary, & an unabashed people person. MD/PhD student in NYC; trying to escape with my sanity & ethics intact. Learning to value kindness over cleverness.
Lots of boosts & personal posts here; to be forewarned is to be forearmed.
Listing some things I like until I reach the character limit: tarot, storytelling, video games, worldbuilding, non-vocal music, sci-fi/fantasy (esp from people often erased from our vision of the future), plants, & you (probably).
GAY WRATH MONTH LET'S GOOOO

In desperation? shamelessness? security that they will get away with it? Fox News simply has started showing fabricated images to try to make the very peaceful Seattle Capitol Hill autonomous zone like a war zone.
Join us! Even if you're not literally in/from SF (I'm not).
We're kicking off an 8-week online reading group on The End of Policing and other works on police abolition. Thursday evenings starting June 25. Sign up here: https://airtable.com/shrywohQC3FhbpELy
Omg. loveforbutter's next bake includes croissants and chocolate croissants. 😋
Highly recommended, if you're on the SF Bay Peninsula.
This workshop seems like a good low-key way to connect with others that want to take a stand, and do some soothing crafty things together at a distance.
Sad I can't make it
Even if you are being careful because of COVID or can't get to a protest, you can still make a sign and wave it at your nearest street corner.
It's time to make a sign and take a stand.

This whole thread, from a Minneapolis councilperson, is a good look into how fundamentally rotten American policing has become. I particularly enjoyed the "the police union is not a real union" explainer. 🌹
I want to be clear: I am about as pro-union as a person can be. The Police Federation should not be thought of as a union. They do not affiliate with the AFL-CIO. They don’t walk picket lines in solidarity. How do I know? Because I do and I’ve never seen them on a line. Not once.
What's up, partner? #caturday
