I'm a queer mixed-race art activist based in Oakland. I'd love to grab coffee some time and pick your brain about life as an artist for the movement, if you're down. Hope you are well. : )
Let’s do it! I have stories for days lol
I am trying to purchase “Five Tips For Queer Boys” but I can’t find it on the website! Please help!
I promise to print these sets very soon!!!!
Have you ever experienced being stopped and asked for your papers? What did it feel like? Were you frightened or angry?
Well, I’ve gotten pulled over a couple of times. Once, when I was in college and working the graveyard shift at a store, I got pulled over. After the cop decided to search my car for drugs and called backup, they “thought” they found something. After a couple of code words amongst the now 5 cops, one of them pointed a gun at me an told me to freeze. I’d never seen a gun and my whole life flashed in an instant. A few moments after, which felt like an eternity, the cop searching my car dimly said, “nevermind.” The cop pointing the gun at me slowly lowered his killing artifact. Now, would this have happened if I had papers? Probably. Just look at the historic treatment of young men of color by cops. Did I want to deny the cops the searching of my car? Yeah, but I agreed cos I didn’t want to get deported and I simply didn’t know better back in 2003.
