If we want respect and love and beauty among us and all our many
communities, we must actively and systematically promote it through
our art and through our teaching of others. Teaching, in this sense,
becomes a political act, a conscious effort to build a movement of
people prepared to facilitate and participate in social change. We
need the rest of the LGBTQ community!

Roll Deep in Solidarity to Support QUEER YOUTH OF COLOR 9.23.04
We will be meeting here at FIERCE @ 5pm
so that we can roll over together. (437 W. 16th ST. LL btw 9th and 10th ave, near the 14th St A/C/1/9 trains) Contact me at 646.336.6789 x105 or 102 or just email me firstname.lastname@example.org
This is Heather from FIERCE, on Thursday (tomorrow) we are going to be attending Community Board Meeting 2 and I am asking all of you to help FIERCE pack the house. We want to roll hella deep this Thursday to show solidarity in the unjust treatment and policies that they are enforcing through policing and curfews by the residents.
At these meetings the residents push policies forward without the voice of ALL community members, including queer and Trans youth of color that are heavily impacted by many of the decisions and resolutions that are passed, especially our Trans folks who are a current target of Bloomberg’s "Operation West Side". Operation West Side has increased police presence in the West Village so they can sweep any Transgender Woman that is walking the streets from the hours of 2am – 7 am. Yet no to long ago this summer Angeles (a queer man of color) was murdered for protecting 3 Trans Women who were being harassed by men passing through the community.

Here are a couple of poems I wrote that have "lesbian" driven meanings.( 2 PoemsCollapse )
|Tuesday, April 13th, 2004|
Kimie is this wonderful amazing person, that I have known since my freshmen year of high school. And I love her so much, whether it be as my friend or the girlfriend that I can't have. I still care about her. Anyways, Kimie likes me or something, I don't know what it is. However, she has a girlfriend, and she claims that she loves her girlfriend. They have been together for around 8months I think.
Another thing that I should add is Kimie is sick. She is Aplastic anemic, which kinda means, or really means, that she is dying. She is doing well now, or putting up a really good front. The girl I work with gretch said that that might be why she won't go out with me or get to close, because she is sick and she could die. And when I asked Kimie she confirmed it.
So to get into the whole little story. I started talking to Kimie more and seeing her more often this year, because they allow her to come into school for part of the day. So I was seeing her more often and talking with her, and she flirted with me and I flirted with her. But I mean that I was it, I refused to make a move because she had a girlfriend. And one day she told me she wanted to kiss me, this was online. So I was a little shocked by that, but it didn't happen right away because she went away on like a short trip. When she came back I was happy to see her and I talked to her more, and one morning I meet her during homeroom, down near the choir room hallway. Thats when it happened, she kissed me. Twice. And then I would meet with her before her bus picked her up to take her home and I would get kisses then. So I would get at least two kisses a day. Well she then made the choice to go with her girlfriend, so we stopped kissing for a while. It seemed like so long. And then today... she kissed me. I don't know what to make of it, it just confuses me more. Because I do like her but I like the guy I'm going to prom with as well. I missed not getting kisses from her, and one day I will give her a kiss instead of her being the one to give me a kiss. I gave her a kiss once but it was just on the cheek, that was nothing really. But one day maybe I will work up the nerve to kiss her, more than just the cheek. Thats if I work out things in my head. Or if she does. Current Mood: aggravated

I don't know what to say, I really suck at this whole first entry kinda thing. Like to groups even more so because its like I'm talking to more than just myself. If that makes any sense.
I'm 17yrs old, I'm a bisexual, I live in PA. A small town, that sucks because everyone is so closed minded and blind to the world. Its as though they all have their heads up their asses. But thats really just besides the point. I like it when people are openminded, I like being able to hold a conversation with someone without worring weither or not they will be offended by what I have to say. With an openminded person to talk to, there isn't to much to worry. I never get to offended by anything, the only thing that irks me are rumors. Like ones that people say about me that aren't true.
So now you know that I rant a little. You also know what irks me. umm... I write poetry and short stories or whatever else flows from my creative mind and through my hands. I also read a lot, I'm a huge book worm. I can finish a book in a day if you give me a nice car and a box of like fruit snacks, I could curl uyp and just read. Though I would love to have someone to read with. I have a cat and dog, and love animals, though the cat bothers me some. She's a little stuck up, she thinks that she is like all high and mighty ruler.
I'm running out of things to say.
I am single, at the moment, I'm not really sure whats going on in my life. I am going to prom with a wonderful guy, but he is not my boyfriend at this point in time. And I don't know if I want him to be my boyfriend because I do like him but I also like this girl. So it is a perturbing situation for me. One which I'm sure I will tell in due time.

Hey i am a newbie lesbian from Berkeley California but i just moved to a small town in onterio. Joined the community today and i wrote this prose type thing.
yeah so my town is pretty german and they have october fest every year. Since i'm taking german i got to go with my class to a celebration thing that was being put on for the highschool. Nifty people from as far away as london came wierd(london onterio) We ate german food and danced..i didn't get to meet any of the nifty people though. I saw this one girl she looked so familar i'm still not sure what it is about her but then i asked if i knew her from somewhere. She told me probably not and that she was from cambridge i realized that there was something about the way she spoke and the way she carried herself that was so similar to Laura.Laura is my ex. I miss her... Yeah i know that is sad we were barely anything . I haven't even written to her or even talked to her since the last night of csssa. when everything went wrong and i didn't say goodbye to about half of the people i wanted to say goodbye to in the morning ...i miss rolling down hills yeah and all you nifty people. my memory wont let me forget you maybe i will write it down on paper. nina and i played in the leaves yes the have seasons in canada other than sun rain and fog.

hey my name's juliana, i'm 19, bisexual, from california, i love cats and playing guitar and writing :). I'm not exactly sure what type of posts this community is looking for, but the creative things I do mainly revolve around poetry/song writing. I paint too, but it's really bad ;D. anyway this is a poem i wrote, so i thought i'd post it here. and if no one comments, that's totally cool! just want to become a little more involved in this community :)
The feelings you've left me with
and the love I once had for you
threatens to consume me once again,
a love so painful that words can do it
but a pain I'd willingly experience
a thousand times over
because you're that beautiful.
was one of the most sensual experiences
I've ever known,
you woke up my senses,
you woke up my potential,
that deep longing for change
that had been lying dormant inside me
for much too long.
Now everything I desire
comes to life when you enter my realm of thought;
do you know how amazing that is,
that power you have over me?
Even I cannot comprehend the
extent to which my thoughts have carelessly flowed
carrying you inside them.
Your eyes, enigmatic and haunting
invite me in,
and those soft words you speak
at unforgiving hours
make me quiver
with a strange sense of hope and
From the universe you have drawn
the gift of passion
and you use it well,
you cast spells
and you don't even know it.
You brought back old memories
that I thought had forever died
The denial that I ever loved you
is now severed
and scattered across the floor.
You cut deep into the parts inside me
that I long to forget,
they now fuel a desire I need,
they make me remember I have the capability to love
the way that I love you.
You make me want something more
you make me go out of my mind
What would you say if you knew?
Would you reach out and ask the same of me?
I may never know
but the questions are endless
and leave me coming back for more
you always leave me
coming back for more.
