Whether or not you’re a sex worker, subscriber or consumer, this should should anger you. Payment services and banks are dictating who gets to work and who doesn’t; who gets respected for their labor, time and talent, and who doesn’t. Banning SW from Onlyfans just promotes harm towards workers and supports shame and stigma as an acceptable world view. Sex work is work, period.

Today is #internationalnonbinaryday - Some things to remember about nonbinary identities:

💛 Nonbinary People can look any way they want to.

🤍 You cannot tell someones gender or pronouns by looking at them.

💜 Singular they, as in they/them pronouns have been used since the 14th century and aren’t only useful, they are grammatically correct.

🖤 Respecting peoples pronouns isn’t hard, it is a basic act of human decency.

52 years ago today the Stonewall Riots took place an uprising which began as a retaliation against police brutality that sparked the beginning of the gay liberation movement. The movement forever changed modern queer history. Today we remember our elders who came before us particularly our BIPOC trans ancestors who changed the world and paved the way for our modern LGBTQIA+ rights movement. 🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈

You can get an STI if you've had sex once. You can get an STI if you've had 100 partners. You also might not get an STI if you've had 100 partners. Is one person more dirty than the other if by chance they contract an STI? Absolutely not! ⁠ STIs are a natural risk involved when people get pretty close to each other, and some can be transmitted even if you practice the safest of sex. ⁠ The reasons we feel STIs are dirty is due to social stigma not science. But, we can get rid of that stigma by being open about our sexual health with our partners and other people in our lives, by getting tested regularly, and practicing safer sex knowing our risks! Interested in getting tested? Let us know we would love to get you connected!

Tell Your Lawmaker: Let's End the Criminalization of HIV

Attention all Virginians!

Tell Your Lawmakers: Remove Felony Penalty for Virginians Living with HIV!
Senate Bill (SB) 1138, which makes progress towards decriminalizing HIV in Virginia, passed the House of Delegates with amendments on Friday. Unfortunately, one of the amendments adds a felony penalty, which will disproportionately impact people living with HIV. Fortunately, we still have time to remove this harmful amendment.

Please take action by filling out the information below to easily let your delegate know that you support decriminalizing HIV. Ask them to vote YES on SB 1138 without the felony penalty. It takes just a few clicks to have your voice heard.

Let's advance LGBTQ equality and human rights by modernizing Virginia's law that criminalizes people living with HIV!

Marlon Riggs was born in Fort Worth, Texas, in 1957. He graduated magna cm laude from Harvard University in 1978, with a major in History. While at Harvard, Riggs pursued an independent study of the portrayal of "male homosexuality in American fiction and poetry." Riggs received a master's degree in journalism with a specialization in documentary film in 1981 from the University of California, Berkeley. Riggs wrote, produced, and directed eight films and videos. He also wrote numerous scholarly articles and held interviews on identity, politics, censorship, African American culture, and documentary film practice. Working during the height of the culture wars of the 1990s, Riggs examined highly contested topics within the fabric of American identity and African American culture. Riggs explored more personal topics such as sexuality and his HIV status in Tongues Untied, Affirmations, No Regret, Black Is…Black Ain’t. The latter productions made him vulnerable to criticism and political ridicule by right-wing conservatives and individuals who did not share his perspectives on American history, public media, or art. Most significantly, Riggs was able to use his films and writings to shift notions of shame and despair around homosexuality into acts of resistance and agency. Riggs did not live to see the completion of his final film, Black Is… Black Ain’t. He died on April 5, 1994 of an AIDS-related illness before filming was finished. Riggs legacy will forever live! Happy Black History Month ✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿

James Baldwin was an essayist, playwright, novelist and voice of the American civil rights movement.
Baldwin spent a majority of his literary and activist career educating others about black and queer identity, as he did during his famous lecture titled “Race, Racism, and the Gay Community” at a meeting of the New York chapter of Black and White Men Together (now known as Men of All Colors Together) in 1982. Baldwin was open about his homosexuality and relationships with both men and women. Yet he believed that the focus on rigid categories was just a way of limiting freedom and that human sexuality is more fluid and less binary than often expressed in the U.S.
"If you fall in love with a boy, you fall in love with a boy," the writer said in a 1969 interview when asked if being gay was an aberration, asserting that such views were an indication of narrowness and stagnation.
