Carmen Carrera-Transgender and Gay Marriage

I forgot i had these screen shots of a conversation Carmen Carrera a “transgender reality TV personality, model and burlesque performer, and activist for trans-equality” had between her Facebook fans and admirers. She just gives her perspective on topics like gender, sexuality, gay marriage, and what it personally means for her to be transgender, and how this specific community is overwhelmed with societal expectations, limitations, adjustments, and discrimination…etc.. Overall, it was just very interesting the first time i read the comments and Carmen’s responses. Just thought i should share. 🙂

Neoliberalism and Homonormativity: Spoken Word

So after turning in my paper and still having all of this energy, I thought I’d share this awesome video that I came across. It is a spoken word piece that someone shared on tumblr and I thought looked interesting. They cover topics about SF’s Pride parade and the companies that sponsored it as well as why they shared an interest in an event such as pride.

I think that the video pretty much speaks for itself. I’d love to hear some feedback to see what y’all think!

Happy Finals Week, and I wish you all good luck. Sending positive vibes!

Just Thought I’d Share…

While procrastinating on Facebook, I discovered this MTV article announcing the new face of the beauty brand, Clean & Clear – Jazz Jennings, a 14 year old trans teen. I found the news and its associated campaign – #SeeTheRealMe – exciting so I just thought I’d share it on here!

Enjoy, & good luck on finals! 🙂
