Some ideas to get you thinking about what you might want to do for the baby queer (baby trans/baby dyke/baby bi/baby gay) themed zine we’ll put together at Sunday (Oct 5th)’s brunch <3

1. do you have advice you’d want to give to your younger self?
2. write about coming out and dating a woman for the first time at age 40
3. that time you kissed your best friend in kindergarten and never talked about it until you were 20
4. the first time you came out. 
5. the 10th time you came out.
6. having crushes on girls in 7th grade and not knowing they were crushes because girls only had crushes on boys
7. the first time you found a label that fit you.
8. the fourth time you found a label that fit you. 
9. the first time you found pronouns that fit you.
10. illustrate the transformation of your aesthetic
11. the first time you kissed someone you were into and thought “WOW. so this is how it’s supposed to feel.”
12. how much you HATE the term “baby gay”
13. how it took you a while to find a queer community that felt like home
14. the things you google searched when you were closeted
15. feeling pressured to be more or less sexual than you wanted to be your freshman year of college
16. the first time you were betrayed by the racism in the queer and trans community
17. how the queer and trans community helped you work through your internalized misogyny
18. a thank you letter to the older queer and trans folks who mentored you
19. write about having a crush on your straight best friend in the style of a greek tragedy (because we know it was that painful)
20. the playlist that got you through your angsty teenage years
21. all the self-destructive ways you tried to make yourself straight or make yourself the gender you were assigned
22. Justifying your attraction to women by saying that women’s bodies are just more sexualized under patriarchy
23. Telling yourself you must be straight since you get off to Harry Potter slash fanfiction about Sirius and Remus (men!)
24. What kept you alive when you didn’t want to be
25. What your 16 year old self thought your life would be like at this point vs. what it actually is
26. Your feelings about the It Gets Better Project
27. Whether or not you approve of the way MTV’s Faking It portrays the confused teen queer experience
28. If you still have poems you wrote when you were a teenager, please put them in!!
29. The first time you were in a space where the majority of the people were trans like you
30. A love letter to your 17 year old self
And remember if you want to sign up for our mailing list you can do so here: http://eepurl.com/3bCA5

So I had fun putting these together. Feel free to add your own ideas even if you can’t come to the brunch in Philly!

#SizeDoesntMatter Week 2 by @mynameisjessamyn and @yoga_davina
Today I really needed some yoga to calm me down a bit after a tiring sad day saying goodbye to my 6 year old cat Mijo. So emotionally drained all day from the loss of my little buddy. I’ll always miss his headbutts.
