This blog is a continuous practice of self-love—a safe space for me to live authentically out loud. In doing so, I hope to empower others to do the same. I aim to cultivate a more compassionate world through self-expression and acceptance, accountability, efficacy, and celebration. This blog will feature my personal experience as I navigate the world as a multiply queer, polyamorous, sex-body-kink positive, disabled, spiritual-without-religion, AuDHDer.
Here we undo generational trauma by breaking down the shame that encapsulates taboo subjects and misunderstandings. We are stronger as individuals when we rid ourselves of shame. This is a safer space for people to explore their identities and learn about others without fear of judgement.
Additionally, our society consists of economic and social structures founded on oppression. These structures work cohesively as a self-sustaining system that perpetuates white supremacy and racism, homo- and transphobia, sexism, xenophobia, classism, ableism, ageism, and religious prejudice. The majority narrative is exclusionary and often violent towards those who dare to defy the status quo simply by living authentically. I am here to play my part as an accomplice* in the dismantling of colonialist structures that enables such exclusion and violence. This blog is an intersectional* approach to history, current events, and others’ lived experience. This will be accomplished by elevating the voices of the unheard, disenfranchised, and oppressed masses (please visit the Facebook page or instagram @thequeercult). We are stronger as a society when we value diverse voices and life.
This blog is for queer and cis alike if you believe:
Black Lives Matter. Indigenous Sovereignty Now. Stop Asian Hate. Anti-Semitism and Islamophobia have no place. No human is illegal. The personal is political. Science is real. Labor is not life. Disability is not a bad word. Invisible Illnesses are valid. Fat is not a bad word. Mental Health Matters. Reproductive rights are for all. Trans Rights are Human Rights. Gender is not binary. Sex work is work. Love is love.
Disclaimer: If you do not believe in all of these things, then you do not belong here. Hateful, distracting comments will be deleted. Hate will not be tolerated, and you will be removed (blocked) in order to protect the sanctity of the communities this blog represents and protects. This blog is an assault on capitalism, colonialism, and the patriarchy. This is also a trauma-conscious space, where healthy communication is paramount and unpacking shame and trauma will occur regularly (with appropriate content/trigger warnings).
Welcome, and thank you for being here!
*“Accompliceship — the process of building relationships grounded in trust and accountability with marginalized people and groups. Being an accomplice involves attacking colonial structures and ideas by using one’s privilege and giving up power and position in solidarity with those on the social, political, religious, and economic margins of society. This is in contrast to the contested notion of allyship which is often performative, superficial, and disconnected from the anticolonial struggle.”
*intersectionality: a lens through which we can analyze how aspects of a person’s race, sex, sexuality, gender, class, and other social and political identities compound each other to “create different modes of discrimination and privilege.”
