So @scoutbrarian decided that #Athena is trainable to walk with us outside on a leash. Hmmm - not so much as she has other things in mind, like laying around. #furbaby #furbabiesofinstagram #cat #catsofinstagram #siamese #siamesecat #siamesecatsofinstagram #TuesdayHappenings

From Sunday, June 24th, 2018: Y’all didn’t think I would come to #neworleans and not see a #dragshow My sister-from-another-mister @hidinginahoodie & I went to @ozneworleans Sunday night and caught this fab show! I’ll be dragging (pun intended) @scoutbrarian this week while we enjoy Part B of this awesome trip! #drag #dragqueen #dragqueens #nola #vacay #gayneworleans

From @scoutbrarian #ALA #americanlibraryassociation conference in #neworleans : some of my pics aren’t the best quality but I never miss chances to take pics of Scott, especially when he’s a presenter and also honoring award winners! 😊

We got to see #thepublicmovie with an appearance by its star and producer #emilioestevez who was both funny and passionate about this poignant and timely piece. #nola #jennamalone
Learning about the growing wave of #dragqueenstoryhour (s)#dragqueenstorytime (s) across the U.S. & Canada was quite powerful as well.
Scott welcomed his friend, writer & cartoonist #JarrettKrosoczka to the #ThePowerOfStory #Scholastic Literary event which was quite moving for both of us.
Emilio called libraries, “the last bastion of democracy” in the States and @mgillman - who won a #stonewallaward for their wonderful graphic novel #asthecrowflies - called librarians the gatekeepers of what books enter the world and stressed the importance of using their privilege to open the doors wide to trans and gender non-conforming artists/writers at the #stonewallbookawards
Both such powerful messages that I will carry with me into my own work with youth. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
