A Colorful Qweendom

Basically life as a student, person of color, activist, lover, extremist, twin, non monogamist, dancer, person who is fluid,feminist, human,gender non conforming, food enthusiast,friend, superhero/regular person :) Most of this will probably be retelling of things I've heard and seen, and something will just be for the hell of it.

Thanks for viewing,
Qween

Notes on Afrofuturism - Afrofuturism in Design

brilyahntpeacenotes:

At the last Sober Sunday we had the Africana Book Club meet. The theme of this month was Afrofuturism. We watched a short film, Pumzi and then discussed its Afrofuturistic elements. Below are the notes that came from our discussion.

Afrofuturism was coined by a…

I don’t understand why books have shifted from having summaries on the back of the covers to having one-line reviews.

Seriously though. I want to know what the book is about. Not that someone from the Evening Standard thinks it’s a masterpiece. 

I have been waiting for this post my whole life.

THANK YOU

This would be super useful for someone who wanted to wear lipstick but couldn’t put it on straight because of shaking hands.
And yet you all are laughing about it because it isn’t useful for your own everyday lives? Making fun of the very people that this device would be useful for - the “handicapable?”
Probably because you’ve never been forced to stop and think about how you’d do mundane shit like putting on your lipstick with a disability. Do me a favor and stop using outdated, ableist words like “handicapable” and stop making disability the butt of the joke.

I was gonna unleash some cripple rage but then mohala sumiko fukkin nailed it
Yo fuck ableist nonsense this is a rad idea for fellow sick femmes out there

Oh, I’m so ready to add to the cripple rage pile.
Fun story ables - a year ago I tried to give all my make up to my sister because I couldn’t even put mascara on anymore without it getting all over my face thanks to tremors. Luckily she just told me she’d do my make up if I needed it.
Even now if I want to put eyeliner on it takes over an hour because I have to redo so much of it with how shaky my hands get. You can see why I haven’t worn any in over nine months.
I am a femme goddess. My femme is badass. My femme requires so much more dedication than abled femmes could ever understand. My femme is eyebrow pencils that I wear daily because my eyebrows fall out in patches from illness. My femme is amazing and equally as queer as yours and your abled ass is never going to look as cute as my disabled femme magic.

Gentrification in Progress

Smart work on the street, from a sharp artist and close homie of ours — whatup GILF!  The last two images are from a building where the landlord recently got old school NYC, and destroyed the building to displace rent-stabilized tenants.  They’re in court now.  See the video here.

Chimamanda Adichie - The Danger of a Single Story (TED Talks 2009)

Tell me again, what did you say about representation not being important?

This gifset goes perfectly with an article I just read. This is why media representation is so important. Because it brainwashes our children to not even see themselves in their OWN stories.

Just read Adichie’s new novel Americanah, which I highly recommend. Great book, and not too much weather in it.

My relationship to the word "queer" (LGBTQ Black folks only, please)

eshusplayground:

I’ve been thinking off and on for a while about my relationship to the word “queer,” and the more I think about it, the more complex it gets.

I’m a bit sleepy, so I do not promise that this will be coherent, but I will try to speak my truth as I currently understand it. If…
