I would just like to say how sad, and heartbroken, and terrified all at the same time I am about the most recent tragedy dealing with Planned Parenthood. For those of you who don’t know, last Friday, November 27th, a man named Robert Lewis Dear opened fire at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, according […]

Before I begin, I want to say that on Friday, November 13th, the world experienced many tragedies. For that, I keep the world in my thoughts. This post is directed much more at the users of social media. As I’m sure all of you have seen, there is a new Facebook filter available to show your […]

I am so pissed off. Okay. So hopefully you all read my post from last week, Building Community. Because today we are going to talk about the uneducated assholes of the world.

We need to talk. Talk about what’s happening in the world. Talk about why it’s happening. Talk about our role in what is happening and what we need to do to make it stop. Disclaimer #1: This post is on a heavy topic and I am still not able to grasp all aspects of it. […]

These are my own specific, one perspective experiences and thoughts. So, don’t hate. <- That’s a disclaimer that I don’t speak for anyone except myself in this short personal reflection. I am Korean-American. Yet, it was only recently that I realized that I had been socialized as White practically my whole life. I had always defended […]

As is common knowledge, in today’s heteronormative society, individuals in the queer community face all sorts of different levels of oppression. Some less common knowledge is that certain groups in the queer community enhance those levels of oppression for other identities that are less known and talked about. A perfect example of this is me.

Community is very important. It’s very important to me, and to any individual that identifies within a marginalized group. This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Mid-Atlantic LGBTQA+ Conference, “Queering Our World” at Bloomsburg University in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. It was amazing. There were Queer identified individuals from all across the east coast. It […]
