People,place, and things along with actions effect our thinking. Our ability to adapt to change and evolve is the key. If just a matter of finding the nouns that inspire us to change for the better. #mondaymotivation#dapperday#dapper

My mom......... isn’t that supportive. I’m privileged not to be kicked out, but the daily dose of #genderdysphoria is a fucking nightmare. I mean, this all happened in the time it took to go to the grocery store, and these conversations are common here. Pretty sure she thinks trans people are just playing dress up, which is painful considering she’s eager to believe in something as unproven as god (btw I’ve got nothing against god, but if you can have faith in someone like them, you should also be capable of believing in real, proven-by-science things like lgbt+ people and fucking climate change.) I’m posting this today for a few reasons: because I won’t be able to post in the morning and because I’ve gotten an influx of hate from THAT GROUP OF PEOPLE (not gonna name em, because I don’t need any more to discover me lol), and I just want to post art and get those nice, supportive interactions I get with every Relatable comic I post.
But also, the hate is starting to just annoy me mildly more than anything. I’ve gotten so much and all the arguments, regardless of their anti-whatever it is messages, just start to sound stupid and uneducated after a while. I had a Christian mom tell me the source I sent her (a list of almost 3000 scientists who signed that thing in support of trans, non binary and gender nonconforming people) to prove MY existence was written by President Barack Obama and that he made all those identities up and if you called their offices, you wouldn’t ever be able to reach them because they don’t exist so... people be reachin’. And now I’m off to shower! I hope you’re all well! #trans#transgender#comicsofinstagram#lgbtqia+ #lgbt+ #transman#nonbinary#transmasc#transmasculine#neutrois#agender#genderfluid#dysphoria#illustration#doodle#comic#queercomics#queer#hehim#theythem#pronounsmatter#transpeoplearenotaburden#protecttranslives#transpeoplewillnotbeerased
Home Work Anthology is seeking out stories that are at the point of erasure or narratives that have seldom been told in the first place. Home Work is the work of queer and trans people of color being in relationship to families and places of origin. There are so many ways to define this and we are open to all interpretations of the term. While we are exclusively looking for stories from Queer and Trans People of Color, the stories do not need to revolve around these facets of your identity but by all means can include them. Our purpose of creating this anthology is to lift up the nuances and complexities of Home Work as a person standing on the corner of multiple intersections.

TRANS PEOPLE WILL NOT BE ERASED. Day 14 of the #shareBIPOCvoices challenge was updated to address the timely issue of trans rights (see the challenge prompt on @wherechangestarted). This might be an obvious choice, but I am so moved by the voice of Laverne Cox that I had to share her message here. There’s lots more where this came from on her account. ❤️❤️For me, her words strike such a deep chord! They remind me that we are all “more than” any one particular thing about us: any characteristic of any kind, any label we are given or even choose for ourselves, anything at all you can think to use to describe any one of us. And yet folks get stuck on the labels, and the stories they create about what the labels mean. Charismatic, graceful, intelligent, beautiful, outspoken people like Laverne make it easier to rally folks who don’t want to be limited by labels to fight together, to work on creating the world that we all deserve - where differences are grounds for appreciation rather than objectification, and our common humanity is celebrated as the underpinning of any story we tell about ourselves or others. Thank you, @lavernecox, for being such a glorious human. Your leadership makes this world a better place, every day you show up in it. ❤️❤️❤️ #wherechangestarted#translivesmatter#blacktranslivesmatter#blacklivesmatter#lavernecox#glorioushumans#transpeoplewillnotbeerased
You can’t define us out of existence. We are who we are regardless of your words. You can’t murder us out of existence. We’re born every day. Born from birth. Born from strength. Born from courage. Born from love. Your hate is futile. #transpeoplewillnotbeerased
Today's disturbing news that the Trump Administration is planning to roll back recognition and protections of trans people under federal civil rights law is not okay. 😡
We stand with the trans and gender non-conforming community in our LGBTQ+ family. #TransPeopleWillNotBeErased#WontBeErased
