Hey babes. I know we’re still all mixed and messed up from the election. I still have really strong feelings, but I’m trying to let the optimistic part of my brain take over and reinforce my belief in altruism. I’m trying to be more active with actual issues. I’m trying to use my white privilege to end my white privilege.

Speaking of which, here are two events you can participate in with me: Baltimore Scarf Abandonment && Queer Pride Video. Yes, they’re more convenient if you’re local — but you can still totally participate in some form from wherever you are in the world.

Focusing on some good things today, we have some unusual holidays to celebrate! We’ve got two good ones: Button Day and Party With Your Bear Day! If you party with your bear, PLEASE send me a photo. I need it in my life. (If you send me a vertical photo, I’ll share it on Instagram Stories!)
