The discussion will take place from 4 - 5:30 PM in the Natural Science Building, room 217, and feature the following fine folks:

    Amirah Mizrahi is a queer, Arab-Jewish poet, educator, translator, comics artist, and cat-sitter. Her work is multilingual, mixing Hebrew, Arabic, and English in the spirit of Gloria Anzaldúa. She misses warm oceans, dreams of a free Palestine, and makes a mean shakshouka. Her works are featured in the zines Mixed Up! and Uproot: Queer Voices on Migration, Displacement, and Diaspora, as well as Cartographies, a collection of her own works.

    Manish is an activist life coach and the Artistic Director of Peacock Rebellion, a queer people of color -centered crew of artists, activists and healers who use the performing, literary and media arts to help build social justice culture.

    Lyric Seal, the pornographer also known as the performance artist and contemporary dancer Beast Ly, wants to know why these monsters cannot be one and the same. A postmodern lesbian Peter Pan, an acrobatic bottom who always ends up on top, they do not want to have sex with you, but would like for you to think about them, and you, having sex… near each other. Lyric collaborates frequently with that artist of great porn starhood, and their dear friend, Jiz Lee. Lyric is part of the artist’s collective and lesbian fraternity Poppers’ Creek. You can find things they wrote in the punk rock publication Maximum Rock n Roll and forthcoming in the feminist publication, LIES. They write curriculum about loving yourself, knowing yourself, and being nice to other people for the anti-bullying, community movement building non-profit, Not in Our School. They recently toured the piece “Bardragon: a piece of my flesh for the hungry-lonely” with the cabaret revelation, Mangos with Chili. Lyric hates words almost as much as they love talking and they love dance like water. They are a fan of pastels and bloody meat. Lyric would like to love you. Lyric would like you to love yourself. They’re a beast. You’re a beauty. You may book them to gogo your party.

    no more cis men playing trans women

    no more equating trans women to men because they have the same genitals at birth

    no more cis men getting awards for trans women roles while actual trans women are getting ignored

    more trans women playing cis women. more trans women being treated like women instead of men in makeup. more trans women.

Here’s to a week for the unconventional before and after photos, National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. For most of my life, I’ve been heavier, and consequently shamed and belittled for my weight.  When I started college, however, I weighed 103 pounds, was eating 400-600 calories a day, doing about 90 minutes of cardio daily, and most importantly, I was anorexic. I was 15 pounds underweight, but no one thought to say anything because they were too busy applauding me for my unnatural weight loss. This is me calling them out. This is my telling them they were wrong. This is me thanking my real life and tumblr friends for everything they done to get me to the wonderful place I am today. So fuck you traditional pictures of “healthy”, I may be fat, but I beat my eating disorder. 

FUCK YEA this makes me ridiculously happy.  

FUCK YES YOU ARE SUCH A BADASS

YES YOU GO GIRL

So fucking excellent.

    Changing the way we talk is not political correctness run amok. It reflects an admirable willingness to acknowledge others who once were barely visible to the dominant culture, and to recognize that something that may seem innocent to you may be painful to others.

    This is the most important thing to understand: something that may seem innocent to you may be painful to others
