A treasure of books recently given to me because my friend’s dad is moving into a senior’s residence. I’m thrilled.

How to be a good ally to Rromani people

chirikli:

(Inpsired by this post)

-Don’t say “Gypsy”. Or “Gypped”. No matter how it’s spelled.
-Correct others who use the words.
-Punch Holocaust deniers in the throat.
-Avoid supporting businesses or musicians that use offensive terminology. Or at the very least, be aware of how damaging they are.
-Don’t accept “historical accuracy” or “art” as excuses for people to be anti-Rromani.
-Don’t perpetuate stereotypes.

Thank you! Najis tuke!

Last words of unarmed black youth gunned down by law enforcement. 

"There are reasons why white gun’s rights activists can walk into a Chipotle restaurant with assault rifles and be seen as gauche nuisances while unarmed black men are killed for reaching for their wallets or cell phones, or carrying children’s toys. Guns aren’t for black people, either.”

from America is Not For Black People

if you live your whole life and then die without making a purposeful choice to become a white ally then American racism becomes your legacy.

from Becoming a White Ally to Black People in the Aftermath of the Michael Brown Murder

okay there is a fantasy novel out there in the world about two male cis elf twins. one is a reckless fellow who rides a gryphon. the other, I think, is a mage who does something to make the elder twin flee to the forests.

the story follows the elf in the forest as he learns to survive. he meets a skilled tracker elf woman who shows him how to run around barefoot in the forest. they fall in love.

I can’t remember much more of the story.

does this sound familiar to anyone?

EDIT: nevermind, found it by searching “fantasy novel elf twins”.

Light is the symbol for truth, knowledge, integrity, and honesty, among other things. Not only does my first tattoo represent my never-ending love and appreciation for Harry Potter, it’s got some added moral bonus to it.

A photo I took of beautiful Sophia from last summer’s Dyke March in Montreal, QC

THIS IS ME. Not sure if I ever reblogged this image, but it became quite popular. I was on my early transition when I was visiting Montréal from Brazil, in a very hot summer day. I was invited to do my burlesque show on the after party of the Dyke March, which was a rad stand of them against transphobia. This what taken in the march itself, in the Gay Village. I heard critics about the way i was dressed and about the fact it seemed to some people I was highliting trans misogyny as a different form of mysogyny.

my dear friend, Sophia, who is a wise and intelligent witch.
trans family gotta stick together. <3
