It’s been awhile for many reasons. But I’m still here and still making things.
This Sunday, June 28 at 9pm ET you can catch me playing noir hacker Monte Maxim in a QUEER MULTIVERSE HEIST tabletop role playing game at twitch.tv/go_jg. There’ll be different queer rpgs on the stream all day, starting at 11am ET, and supporting the Trevor Project. I hope you’ll watch!
Check your inbox tomorrow for a teaser of a narrative project my good friend and collaborator Dee Harris and I will be releasing through this newsletter. We’re excited to share it with you.
Most importantly, however, I’d like to ask you to consider donating to one or all of the following orgs, which focus on queer and trans youth and Black trans people. Please also consider looking into your local Black Lives Matter chapter (here’s BLM in DC). If you’re able I’d ask you to especially consider setting up a recurring donation, not just dropping some money once. It’s important we don’t allow the momentum
If you’re in DC, I’d also like to ask you to join me in demanding the DC Council Committee defund the MPD. There’s a call in and social media campaign happening today, guided by a coalition of Black-led organizations in DC committed to abolition. You can find an action toolkit here, including how to submit testimony, and the committee members contact info below.
