No heart. No compassion. No humanity. Words can’t express what I’m feeling right now; seeing pictures of children in cages put there by Trump and the administration, seeing busses made for infants to be taken away from their parents as young as 8 months, but the worst: how trump supporters think that a child without papers is not worthy safety, that you somehow give up all your rights as a person cause you’re leaving a country of violence. How some people so easily can dehumanize CHILDREN being ripped from their FAMILIES is beyond me. Call your senators at +1 202 224 3121 and tell them you support the “keeping family’s together act 3036” Even if you don’t live in USA, just name a state you know and they will put you thru. So much shit is going on in our world today, but this is really the least you can do to help. Please call.
“Your worst days in recovery will always be better than your best days in your illness” - @florencetag. Yesterday Florence and @a_mcgrane joined us on stage at @vamuseum to discuss recovery and mental health. I think I speak for everyone there when I say they were incredibly powerful and inspiring #inspiredbykahlo
Let’s talk about Pronouns! If you are unsure of a persons pronouns ask them. If someone calls you out for misgendering them don’t get offended, accept that you may have offended them and apologise. Misgendering happens when a person refers to another using incorrect pronouns. Misgendering is often an act of violence on an individual which is why it is important to apologise if it was a genuine mistake or if you were unaware. #gurlstalklgbtq

Dimensions of Gender by Abby Taylor. Abby is an openly queer, gender fluid illustrator and printmaker working in Brooklyn. This series illustrates the depth of indentity and the absolute beauty that is individuality and trueness to self. Abby’s work illustrates the complexity of the human form and psyche and how those piece work together to create and compose our indiviuality. - @stabbytaylor#gurlstalklgbtq
2 years ago 49 lives were taken too soon. Today we remember the victims of the Pulse Nightclub attacks in Orlando. We are reminded why safe spaces are so incredibly important to the community as well as gun reform. We must all continue to fight so EVERYONE can feel safe whilst being themselves. #gurlstalklgbtq#gunreformnow
During her livestream last week @taniasafi said we should speak to ourselves as if we are a loved one. You would never say nasty comments to a loved one so why should you say it to yourself? The way you speak to yourself matters - @bykellymalka
