Check out my girlfriend’s head shaving party prior to losing her hair from chemo! Also aren’t her friends totally hot???
HEAD SHAVING PARTY - Rather than waiting for chemo to take my hair, I decided to do it on my own terms. With the help of Khane Kutzwell at CameraReadyKutz.com, and a bunch of my buddies cheering me on, I got a design imprinted in my head that makes goin bald a lot more fun.
Today is my day on the The Happy Healthy Lesbian telesummit! You can live stream an interview with me where I share baby steps to love your body and how my Femme identity helped me learn to love the body I’m in! It’s FREE, available for 48 hours and you have to sign up to get it!
Join me and eight other happy and healthy queer women for the inaugural Happy Healthy Lesbian Telesummit 20 – 24 Jan.
I’m on Autostraddle talking about gay marriage!
Nurse June (Mizz June) gives @jacquelinemary a shot. She says “Say ahhhh.” this might win the internet. #queer #femme
I’m working the door at Prime tonight! Come on down and visit me! Support a party that celebrates queer folks over 30 (but welcomes all folks over 21).
Wing Ma’am the app comes out this month! I’m super excited for it—it’s like the queer grindr, plus it’ll have events and other kinds of listings. Sign up at the website for their email list, like ‘em on FB and get in the know. The more awesome folks who are on the app the more everyone gets laid and gets connected.
NEW BLOG POST FEMME SEX WEEK: Additions to the Queer Lexicography
My friend Jesse is a queer, body positive trainer and worker outer and high energy human who is not into smart phones or technology but I think he has a lot of great things to say in real life so hopefully his blog will be awesome, too. Follow him if it sounds interesting!
Oh hi! I was just brainstorming for my new blog! While I am quite a caveboy, I’m going to attempt to do this, even if it lacks bells and whistles and witty titles, because I think I have some important things to say. I also have some not very important things to say. Also, my mom recently wrote me a message saying “Jesse. Get your tushy off of facebook” so I figured, I could show more of my tushy here, if I feel like it, and perhaps, less of it on facebook (?).
Take a look at my chalkboard and read some words backwards. This was the best of some attempts at photos, taken by my laptop (because I don’t have a camera).
In this blog I will discuss topics such as: “fat positivity and ‘get your bullshit concepts of health off of other people’s bodies” and “trans at the gym” and “race, ethnicity, body, gender and power & privilege”, (woops, I just realize I spelled that incorrectly on the chalkboard…I’m a bad speller!) and “trans in the locker room” and “body modification vs. concepts of health” and “trans in the bathroom” and “personal training” and “my experience as a special education gym teacher” and “NoBODY is better than anyBODY else” and “this thing came up in the queer youth fitness class that I teach” and “addiction and lifting” and “workout tips” and “watch me lift this heavy thing” and “look at my cute butt” and “look at me in this singlet”, and maybe even if it seems appropriate and if I know that no one I don’t want to see will read it: “jesse’s got a crush”.
Also, in terms of a title, I didn’t over think it, but I thought it sounded good. I am queer, through and through. I don’t really identify as a jock. I just like to lift heavy things, modify my body in certain ways, and see working out as a way of taking care of my mental and emotional health. All of that feels really good to me. “Strapped” conjures up images of the “jockstrap” and reminds one of just how queer and kinky (and playful!) working out can be. It’s also meant to express how I feel as a queer person in my body and in this world. There is a lot that people assume. There are a lot of ways I feel tied down by these assumptions. I plan to bust those assumptions open and explore deeper, more radical notions of what I think about THE body and my body. Enjoy and feel free to send comments or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org (or here if that’s a thing that people do). Please also always come at me with respect and kindness and I will do the same for you. I won’t tolerate or respond to aggression or meanness. Thank you!
