A Letter to Femmes Feeling Invisible:

Dear dykes, wombyn, women, witches and mamas;

Dear sweethearts and sisters,

Gender-bending babes and saccharine gender twisters,

All you femme identifying folx:

Dear high heeled mountain climbers

Dear painted-nail mud runners

Dear blushed cheek early morning bakers

Dear ruby red lipped booty shakers

I see you.

I see you on the streets

Holding hands with other magical femmes,

Holding hands with butch b...

But if there's anything I've learned in life, it's that nothing is certain, and nothing ever stays the same. While for the most part my body and I do just fine, there are some days, weeks, or months where being my body's friend becomes a battle.

Welcome back to #FeministFridays! This week I had the privilege of interviewing the wonderful people of Librería Mujeres, Spain's first feminist book store.

I was first drawn to Librería Mujeres by its sign: a beautiful curvy mermaid floats off of the wall and beckons you in. The store is small and the space is well-utilized - every surface is covered with books or the feminist art they sell, and everything seems to be perfectl...

The current policies that are policing my body make this nearly impossible, and highly unsafe. I am not going to sell you on the idea of “Would you want me in the bathroom with your daughter?” – because that’s complete bullshit: it sexualizes the bathroom and my identity, and hyper-genders me based on appearance to prove a point. It isn’t an argument I want to make. I do not want you to say “Yeah, this dude belongs in the men’...

Welcome to #FeministFridays, a new series where we share the stories of badass local feminists in the communities we're visiting who are doing amazing things! 

For our very first edition, we are delighted to turn the spotlight onto Asociación Ve-la Luz, a group whose mission is to fight for a system that fosters the freedom of women and children who have experienced gender violence and/or abuse. Ve-la Luz formed...

This grief is still very new, and my biggest struggle (and the greatest pain) is finding ways to maintain a connection with my dad: to keep him present in my life, to not let him slip away. I haven't yet found a way to feel like I can stay connected - if you have tips or suggestions, I'd be grateful to hear them. I've been a little more successful developing tools to help navigate the heavier times, particularly ar...

There are often times when the amount of things that I want to do (or feel like I need to do) becomes so overwhelming that I can't do anything.

Less than one week before Blaire and I were set to board a plane for our next big adventure, #notmypresident Trump signed an executive order banning all people

Content warning: rape, sexual violence***Generalized references to “women” in this article refer to anyone who is female-identified. Generalized references to “men” in this article refer to anyone who is male-identified.***

I’ve been hesitant to write this article, primarily because no one needs to see another white person talking about their feelings post-election. Yet in the flood of articles, posts, and comments that have ov...

Every culture has its own practices, customs, and traditions. When traveling, it's important to be aware of and respect the communities you're entering, so you can travel harmoniously without stepping on anyone's toes or unintentionally insulting someone's grandmother.

And so, without further ado, I present:

How Not To Be A Douchebag: Cuba Edition*
