I could not be more enthusiastic about @jodiepatterson much anticipated, newly released book tonight @bloomingdales Carousel Shop in conversation with @bevesmith - THE BOLD WORLD @jodiepatterson a memoir of family and transformation ! So much love and strength and courage to form family and self expression - a must read! β€œA courageous and poetic testimony on family and the self, and the learning and unlearning we must do for those we love. In her stunning and moving debut, Jodie Patterson offers us all a blueprint for what it means to be a champion for our children and encourage us to be bold enough to let our babies lead the way, especially when we don’t have answers. Required reading for every parent, and anyone who has ever been parented.” β€”Janet Mock, @janetmock πŸ–€πŸ™πŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΏπŸ’•#theboldworld

About Last Night!

I just need to pause today and thank @joshuahmelnick for these orchids, and that they remind me of a phrase that a dear friend of @sandyela repeated to her which I will never forget β€œmy eyes are built for beauty” as he was dying from AIDS - I cannot help to think that every time I see someone I know I say: β€œwe are so really fucked, this time” the continuous surges of White House inhumanity, and lawlessness unleashed, the implications of and systematic attempts of erasure of our dignity and of all that was and is being fought for - any and all gains will quickly be rolled back. If in twenty years the question β€œhow did things get like this?” We are certain and clear as to how this all started, and yes we know how we got to this point.

Congrats to @reinaxgossett Eric A. Stanley, and Johanna Burton on the stunning publication TRAP DOOR Trans Cultural Production and The Politics of Visibility - got mine on Amazon! @mitpress @newmuseum
