Have you experienced violence and identify on the queer/trans spectrum? Do you have a piece of writing or artwork about it? Please share it!

Transrelating, a ‘zine “on sex, gender, relationships and the rest of us” is accepting submissions for its next issue.

Violence: behavior intending to hurt. Many in the trans/queer communities share the far too common experience of violence directed toward their gender identity and/or sexual orientation- bullied at school by classmates, hurt at home by family, hurt by lovers/partners, hurt by strangers, hurt by a homophobic/transphobic/body-negative/sex-negative culture, hurt by ourselves.

This issue of Transrelating seeks to share some of the common experiences as well as how we can redirect this trend and change a community/culture. All pieces of writing and artwork are welcome (academic essays, rants, poems, stories, pictures, paintings, drawings, etc).

Email submissions to:

Submissions should be sent by June 1st, 2010.

like the good sport he is, sunshine has agreed to wear this sign and box around the space in an effort to encourage folks to submit questions to another youth’s advice column/blog.  The box fits in nicely with a long tradition of sunshine playing dress up – my personal favorite was a velvety purple jumpsuit.

other activity tonight includes a veritable vat of pasta, haircuts, steering committee, excitement over the Athens Boys Choir show on Saturday, and a big donation of lots of new craft supplies to get us through the rest of winter (thanks Wyatt!)
