Venus de Mars

Tender and heart-breaking, yet fierce. Venus de Mars is a star more people should know about. Love that Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! features on one track. Inspirational.

See Me


Reposted from Buzzfeed.

So few people, once you put the homeless label on them, are able to see [the youth] in any other way. But there’s power that comes with being the survivor of abuse, the survivor of homelessness. Having to assert your sexual orientation and gender identity makes you a really powerful person.

Photo from See Me, a book/project by Alex Fradkin, an award winning photographer, and Taz Tagore, co-founder of the Reciprocity Foundation, a not for profit organization serving the needs of homeless youth in New York City.

Female Masculinity at Its Finest


Reposted from SheWired.

Queer photographer Meg Allen didn’t see the images of masculine women she wanted and needed around her, so she took it upon herself to produce them.

From the article…

Allen tells SheWired, she wanted to celebrate and display her “gorgeous” subjects unrestrainedly, allowing “outsiders a change to look, to stare, without feeling like they’re being invasive.” Her portraits are meant, she says, to be attractive and admired, in contrast to a history of masculine women not feeling fully able to “show” themselves to others due, in part, to an understandable fear of violent reactions. Allen spent time with each model discussing how they thought about their masculinity and wished it to be seen.

Recommendation: meant to wake up feeling


morrison recommends…

meant to wake up feeling

I felt like I was opening up a body as I read these poems. Picking apart bones and untwisting veins. These poems are written in ways that re-imagine what a page is, what a body is, what gender is/means. I feel enlightened and full of so many questions. I’ve begun to reread to search for the hidden meanings behind each word. Wow.

Maternity Clothes for Genderqueer Parents


Reposted from The Cut.

From the article…

Once upon a time, maternity clothing was all bows, floral patterns, and muumuus. While it has evolved in the last few decades to include body-conscious styles that flaunt (rather than hide) “baby bumps,” it’s remained mostly conventionally feminine.

The founders of the new line Butchbaby & Co. want to change that. Vanessa Newman, a digital strategist, and Michelle Janayea, a design student at Columbia College in Chicago, are creating an alternative to hyperfeminine maternitywear aimed at LGBTQ folks who are starting their own families.

To Survive on This Shore


Photo taken from a series of pictures from To Survive on This Shore.

Representations of older transgender people are nearly absent from both photography and social science domains, and those that do exist are often one-dimensional. To survive on this shore combines photographs of transgender and gender variant people over the age of fifty with interviews about their life experiences in regards to gender, identity, age, and sexuality and provides a nuanced view into the complexities of aging as a transgender person. By combining our experiences working as a photographer and social worker within the transgender community, we hope to create a project that is simultaneously highly personal and socially relevant.

Anjimile – ‘Human Nature’


Submitted by Lee. Photo taken by Leah Corbett Photography.

“This is the photo featured on the album cover for Anjimile’s upcoming LP entitled ‘Human Nature.’

Anjimile is a queer non-binary black musician from Boston, and this album is a colorful, chaotic, melodic journey into the labyrinth of thoughts and feelings that we call the human condition. What does it mean to feel the body, the mind, and the soul fully? How does it feel to be a human being? What is the feeling? Anjimile explores these themes in an album written in 3 parts: Act I (You Were Born), Act II (You Will Be), Act III (You Will Die).

Recommendation: BROTHERS


Someone recommends…

BROTHERS
web series

I think it is a great series and I would like to see more episodes..

BUT: they need you all to produce another episode. I am living in Germany, I don’t have a credit card, I have no money to buy stuff from the site, and the shipping would be too expensive, and I cannot donate…
But I would like to help them.

So please!! Go on this site and help making another episode possible.

Recommendation: What the Night Demands


Someone recommends…

Book cover of What the Night Demands

I love it because Miles Walser is a great poet. Miles wrote some very touching stuff about trans issues, and especially if you are FTM I bet you will love this, but no matter who you are you will love the writing of this cute as hell and intelligent writer.

You can find a nice blog of Miles, where there is a lot of poetry recommended…
