    My stepsibling was just telling me about them. The shorty on the far right is on of her friend’s in Brooklyn. Small world…

    Seriously? That’s awesome! :)

    I’ve been having a really hard time finding androgynous African American faces in the flickr pools (that are marked genderqueer or androgynous and allow for 3rd party blogging). I had to ask Holy Holy for permission to use this photo — she was generous enough to change its settings for me.

    how could any one not love OMG Michelle? i mean look at those faces! i strongly recommend checking out their mysapce and showing them some love. do it now u can say u knew Michelle before she was signed (cuz they are going to be signed in about 3 seconds).

    the terms “gendrequeer” and “androgynous” are largely used by white queer scenes, so im not surprised that they have yielded tons of poc results. i havnt spent much time on Flickr, but i would try searching “aggressives” or “butch queen” or “stud.” there is, not surprisingly a shift in terminology when moving between segregated spaces.

    its also possible that Flickr is primarily accessed by white folk.

    Miss Day, it is an honor to hear from you. Hi! And yay for OMG Michelle!

    Thanks for the flickr tips — I’ll check out those terms. But yeah, i think it’s also true that flickr is a mostly-white-folk community. Wishing I knew of a “POC equivalent” (along the lines of myspace) that had privacy settings for 3rd party bloggers…

    The hunt for a fully-optimized culturally-representative lazy-blogging workflow process continues…
