That was awesome. I liked the part where Vex said that they consider strip dancing to be just a job where when the dancer is respected then it’s not necessarily disempowering. Because I hear a lot of the “well if they feel empowered than it’s okay” and I’m more of the mindset that it’s just a job where they need to be respected but they don’t need to feel empowered because it’s more complicated than that. I relate to the comparisons to other jobs in the service industry, since my frame of reference is working in customer service and seeing how in that setting you have to create an experience for the customer, but it’s obviously not the same thing as sex work.

Barnard Center for Research On Women recently posted the video of the Janet Mock Salon last April.  I had such a great time moderating this panel/roast/celebration/salon in honor of Janet Mock’s book. Check out the unmeasurable brilliance of my sibling Che Gossett, CeCe McDonald, Brittany Cooper, Mey Valdivia Rude and of course the one & only Janet Mock!

Hands down! One of the greatest nights of my life to have my work be embraced by these brilliant thinkers.

I feel incredibly sad and hopeless when gay and lesbian people call me insulting names. If gay and lesbian people don’t understand me – Continue reading Prejudice at Pride at Empathize This

This just punched me in the heart.

It’s hard to admit that this happens in our community, but it definitely does. Speaking out is the only way it will stop.
