Bi people can feel like they don’t exactly fit into the LGBTQ+ or hetero community. 😢 But here, bisexuality is beautiful and valid 💖💜💙

Attention conference coordinators: Unless your stated theme is “White people are the arbiters of what constitutes knowledge & expertise” there is absolutely no reason to have that many white presenters. None. NONE. 

And the few POC presenters need to be presenting on something other than racism.

I want all healing conferences to literally “flip the script”. Most of the presenters should be other than cismen, and most of the presenters should be POC. 

If your lineup isn’t like this, it tells me you do not take the dismantling of White Supremacy seriously & therefore the lens that you approach healing—especially healing from trauma—is morally bankrupt and cannot lead us to liberation.

It’s fucking 2020, fucking get with the goddamn program.

“You never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice” ~ Bob Marley

Superimposed over the bottom left of the Bi Flag looking as though reading the words is the head of a male lion, his mane done in the colours of the LGBT Pride Flag and wearing a feathered crown.

Four Things We Can All Learn from Queering Kwanzaa:

Habari Gani? What’s the news? Maybe you, like me, have never thought to observe it … The past few years however, I’ve noticed many of my Queer Black friends coming together for Kwanzaa and thinking about it in a way that’s really affirming to their identities.

The central theme of Kwanzaa is authentic community, and as queer people who are often forced to give up some part of ourselves every day to exist safely in the world, queering Kwanzaa becomes a beautiful way to end the year and bring in the new one … Here are just four of the ways Kwanzaa builds rituals and traditions –

  1. Kwanzaa builds rituals and traditions
  2. Kwanzaa is intergenerational
  3. Kwanzaa reaffirms your chosen family
  4. Kwanzaa helps you bring light into the new year

Why People of Color Need Spaces Without White People:

citing her examination of intersectionality within women’s movements, professor Laurel Weldon argues that Inviting Marginalized Subgroups to Hold Their Own Spaces tends to Strengthen Broader Movements

To be a truly inclusive space, it must be created by causes and conditions that allow it to happen organically … If you try to manufacture that presence out of your own ego, it will never happen…
