I highly recommend The (now-on-hiatus) Booklet Series, "a new wave of trans literature."

patreon.com/transwomenwriters

They have a lot of work up for free, and it ranges from photography to poetry to essays, all incredible.

Asking for Money 

My friend Carolina is trying to raise $200 to help her father pay his bills and get his medications. I know everyone is hurting right now, but if everyone could throw in five or ten dollars, it would help out a lot.

Freelance Pitching Advice Question! 

I'm looking to send out a pitch that is about an indie game but also placing it in a much broader cultural context. I have my somewhat open-minded and still well-paying games place I usually pitch to when I have an idea like this, but this time I'm curious if there's any places I could get it in front of a larger/different arts audience.

Are there any arts or culture places that would be open to games-related pitches from random freelancers, and, importantly, pay enough for it to be worth my time (like, at least £200)?? I realize I may be asking for the golden goose here or something....

The eighth annual international Gender Census 2021 is now open until 10th March!

smartsurvey.co.uk/s/gendercens

It's for anyone whose genders (or lack thereof) aren't described by the M/F binary. It's short and easy, and the results are useful in academia, business and self-advocacy.

Don't suppose anyone has any horror recs? But things that aren't based on ableism, racism, or sexism? I get no media is perfect but media that at least tries to avoid those kinds of tropes would be great. Films/books/short stories/podcasts whatever!

The "Stansted 15", direct action folks who locked themselves around a plane set to deport 60 people to 3 different African countries, have had all charges dropped after originally being convicted of terrorism.

The people who were set to be deported are still in the UK as a result of their actions.

photography, local history, sex work, nudity 

Was looking around for some public domain images to use for a project today and stumbled across William Goldman's work, who lived in the late 1800s in Reading PA, very near where I grew up. Some of his most well known work (only discovered well after his death) is a series of photographs of women who worked at a nearby brothel, some posed, and others snapshots of them going about their day to day life. I find them really charming and also humanizing of a past we mostly see in terms of very posed upper class people. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_

I'm not an "x on the driver's license" nonbinary.
I'm a "remove gender from any documentation that doesn't need it" nonbinary.
