This is my love letter to all the queer musicians out there, making art and kicking ass. If there's an artist you think I should know about, please let me know, I love new music! (I also reblog/post on general queer and trans stuff, radical news, and instances when the world is fucked, and when it isn't!)

FED UP FEST! tyteee pix

Some fine folk-punk-ska from Sacramento’s Noah Compost Heap and the Trash Compactor Kids. Lo-fi, DIY punk (with percussion brought to you by kitchen wares!) about race, gender, romance, and the state. There’s also a Leftover Crack cover if that’s up your alley. His self-titled EP is available on bandcamp.

Happy Birthday, Marsha!

Wait, so you don’t want to see a musical about a trans woman of color stage star in the 1920s? Then you won’t need to click on this link. For all the sensible people out there, here’s the indiegogo:

Yes, please

Don’t you wanna see this?! You do! So bad! And you want to pay the people that made it a reality!

Support Trans Women of Color Collective

TWOCC was established almost one year ago after the brutal murder of Islan Nettles, a black trans woman in New York City. Since then we have brought visibility to this case and uplifted the narratives of struggle and resilience from our communities. From our multiple appearances at conferences, to our various talks, and our numerous accountability sessions we have created a new space for trans women of color leadership in the movement.We are an organizing collective, NOT a registered non-profit. We rely on grassroots fundraising to sustain the work. Trans women of color have historically — and continue to — put our bodies on the line for justice. The amount of unpaid emotional, physical, and psychological labor we do for our movements is astronomical. We are tired of the lip service that our allies give to trans women of color issues. We believe that the role of allies in our movement is to fund us so that we can do the work for ourselves! This is a fundraising campaign lead by allies to support our work. We need YOUR change, to make our own!

Lyrics and vocals by Suzy X from Shady Hawkins

"Little white dress. Jesus Christ had a best friend in Magdalene. You can’t say shit that would make me ashamed. I’ll cover up my knees. Forgive me PLEASE. I am just fourteen but your church don’t like my body. Make me hide my skin, sweating sin through my cardigan. You won’t break your bread now that your god don’t like me.”
