Thoughts from Sarah Bedrick

"A Brief History of the Future" is a quote from my favorite spot in Isaiah Zagar's Magic Gardens in Philadelphia.

We are making our own history.

I'm a student originally from New York, and a junior transfer at NYU. I'm a directing major, within Playwrights Horizons Theater School, and I have a dream of someday opening my own theatre company. These are the chronicles of my adventures and inspirations, my mishaps and mayhem, my passion, my dreams, and my art.

SIGNAL BOOST!!!!

This video might be the most clever way to raise money for dogs in need, because all you need to do is watch it.

"Just by watching these puppies, you’re raising money for dogs in need," says the narrator in the video above. "You see, if a video goes viral, YouTube shares the money they made from advertising with whoever made the video, and in this case, every dollar we earn will go toward feeding, treating and finding homes for dogs who haven’t been as lucky as us."

The video comes from The Pedigree Adoption Drive, and ends by imploring viewers to share because the more views received, the more money will be raised.

So share this video. You know, for the dogs.

also click on the ads!!!

"Masculinity is a trait, not a gender"

In an effort to both allocate space for and document the existence of masculine women, photographer Meg Allen created a powerful series of portraits for an exhibit at Cafe Gabriela in Oakland, Calif.

Entitled BUTCH, Allen’s series not only represents genderqueer women for a broader, heteronormative audience, but reaffirms butch identity within the queer community at a time when “butch flight,” or gender transitioning, is arguably becoming more and more commonplace. It is, as Allen says on her website, “an homage to the bull-daggers and female husbands before me, and to the young studs, gender queers and bois who continue to bloom into the present.”

These are some good looking folks

This is all I have ever wanted to see. My butch friends may sometimes get “Why don’t you just become a man?” in the same way folks would tell me “Why don’t you just be a butch lesbian?” Because masculinity and gender identity are two totally separate bubbles, that for some become a venn diagram, and for others, coexist peacefully inside of us.

Two things can exist independently, and coexist peacefully. Gender identity and masculinity/femininity/androgyny.

a lot of these babes are my friends and this project is really important to my city, it makes me so happy whenever i see it.

A lot of these people are also trans. The commentary is skipping that for some reason, when I think it could have mentioned that being trans does not exclude you from identifying as butch. They’re not mutually exclusive terms. Leaving that out to fit a narrative ain’t cute. This needs a new title: 9 portraits of butch people.

Agreed. Also so much attractiveness in one post.

An infographic created by my friend to quickly spread the word on the non offensive way to write trans woman.
If you don’t know why the other variations are crossed out please do some research on your own. Various trans women have written numerous posts about why they are harmful to trans women.

But, question, it still can be the Trans* community, yes? Or do I need to rethink how I conceptualize that for people (and myself…)

I found a post in my liked posts that may help explain why the asterisk is a problem (I hope the link works)

and to queertheoryissexy if you don’t want this advertised then please let me know and I can take it down

You’re good! Also feel free to link to my other post about the ethics of inclusion and coalition within a trans movement, and why trans politics needs to be coalitional politics, not liberal inclusive politics. I’m glad you found my post helpful! -Z
