Queer Muslim Masterpost

strawberreli:

This post pretty much came about because I was asked if I had resources for Muslims who were discovering or newly coming to terms with their sexuality. I didn’t, and the poor advice I had to offer was … poor. So, I pulled up a few of the blogs I followed that are targeted towards queer Muslims, and put together this little post for you!

Queer Muslim Blogs:

Queer Muslim 101:

A good thing to remember is to avoid the self-hatred phase, if you can. Focus on loving yourself, and realising that Allah made you just the way you are, and that you are loved. If this phase is unavoidable, here are some helpful sites:

If you are a student and would like to get Faisal Alam to speak at your uni, or to see if he is coming to your uni soon, click here.

If you would like to attend Faisal Alam’s 2013 Retreat for Queer Muslims and their partners, here is the facebook event, and here is more info. Register for the retreat here.

If you are from Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, or India and want to share your experiences (anonymously), please click here.

If you can spare some funds, help navigatethestream, a queer Muslim, become an Imam to help the Muslim LGBT* community!

Lastly, here is a link if you are NOT a queer Muslim, but want to be a good ALLY! (And here is another on how NOT to be a saviour!)

Happy Pride, everyone!
We compiled this list of tips to help Pride event organizers make their Pride events more inclusive for attendees with disabilities.

1. Ensure physical and cognitive accessibility from the start. Let’s go beyond just wheelchair ramps, raised viewing…

Black Trans Women & Street Harassment:

Conversations on Street Harassment often exclude Black Trans Women because we don’t view them as women& we see their bodies as inherently deserving of violence. We tend to see street harassment of trans women, not as gender based systematic violence, but as non-existent or inexplainable & unavoidable tragedy.

One day African American households all over the country will add a photo of Marvel’s executive management team to photos of Mandela, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and Obama on their mantle. Elders will regale youth with stories of an African American character who briefly replaced Captain America and a single title featuring an African American female character. Why, a black man even led a third (or fourth) tier Avengers team! If we’re really lucky, one day they might even hire an African American to tell these stories! Or any story!

Themed commissions are fun and I’m doing them!

I’m opening 10 slots of Pokemon commissions. :-)

E-mail me at vondell.swain@gmail.com to secure a slot.

Special Notes:

  • Fictional characters and OCs are totally fair game in terms of trainers, it doesn’t have to be you/your friends, I’m just as happy drawing Kaylee from Firefly or one of your OCs as I am drawing people you know.
  • If there’s something involved that I can’t google, reference pics are much appreciated, the more the merrier. :-)
  • Fan-created Pokemon are very OK too. I will gladly and enthusiastically draw your Fakemon.
  • If you (or one of your friends) is in the picture and there’s details I should keep in mind about your appearance/height/gender presentation/etc feel free to add that in there. If I’m gonna draw you, I intend to draw you right! B-) Height is particularly important in couples pieces; if one of you is a foot and a half taller than the other I might end up accidentally drawing you eye to eye if I don’t hear otherwise.
  • If you have additional ideas about poses, actions, outfits, etc, lemme know in the e-mail, otherwise I’ll go with whatever I think looks best!

Payment is handled upfront via my PayPal address pay.vondell.swain@gmail.com. When you e-mail me I’ll let you know where you are on the list and I’ll send you another e-mail when I start working on your piece. Turnaround time is usually a no more than a few days from start to finish. That means people at the end of the list will be seeing their pieces in a few weeks.

These commissions will be delivered via e-mail as two PNGs, one with a white background and one alternate with a transparent background. I’ll send over the PSD file too if you’d be into that. They can be used personally in any way you’d like except for profit, as long as you’re crediting me somewhere. I trust y’all.

Anything else relevant that you’re interested in, feel free to lemme know! If you’re interested in something along these lines that might be priced higher, like a Pokemon team portrait, let me know and we’ll figure a price out based on what you’re looking for.

Sweet! Let’s do this! Reblogs are appreciated although if you’re seeing this in a reblog, make sure to check my page to see whether the slots have already been filled. I’ll have a post up when I’m all full.

I never do this, but my family needs your help. this pit bull / boxer mix is named Daisy. she’s a four-year-old very lovable rescue. she needs a new home by the end of this week or my sister’s boyfriend is putting her down. she has escaped her enclosure a few times due to the gate being left open and the city has given the family citations because of it, causing their insurance to go up, so they are planning to put her down rather than find somewhere for her to live. she is not violent towards people, though she did occasionally fight with the other pit the family has (never to an extreme). she’s a kind, loving, sweet dog who needs a loving owner. she is spayed and all of her shots are up to date. we will pay for all training and equipment required by anyone who could take her in. my sister is heartbroken at the possibility of having to put her down and we have until the end of the week to find her a home. we’re located in Royal Oak, Michigan, but we will drive to you if you’re able to take her in. 

please do me a favor and reblog this so we can find this lil babe a home. message or e-mail me if you or someone you know can help us. zhfields@gmail,com.

It’s because white cis women are the only women allowed enough nuance of personality to afford not to perform femininity to the high degree that women of color or trans women have to in order to be respected. That’s why it’s cute and Feminist! if white cis girls have hairy legs while Mexican girls are made fun of for having lip hair
