- Runner-Up in After the Parade Challenge
greeted by a tapestry of stars, you are awoken by the sound of your name: gentle, cautious, an attempt to rouse you peacefully. they kiss you, a soft stroke on your peppermint lips. you whisper, and you laugh, and sometimes you fuck, a passion-ridden rollercoaster. they dress in an outfit they claim makes them look professional. you run a hand down their sleepy cheeks.
The Truth About Rainbow Capitalism
On June 28, 1969, queer activist Marsha P. Johnson helped lead the Stonewall Uprising in Lower Manhattan, an event which sparked gay liberation in the 1960's and 70's. In 70's New York City, the first of an annual gay liberation march occurred, honouring the events of Stonewall. Since then, every June marks a month of visibility and remembrance within the global LGBTQIA+ community and its allies.
A Little Girl's First Love
It's Wednesday, and a man is twenty six years old. Early in the evening, he escorts his wife to the maternity ward of the hospital, eager for his first child. It's a girl, small and sickly, taken away to be cared for. It's easy to speculate, as a prospective parent, how one would act or feel around their child. It's easy to make plans on how to parent if you haven't become one.
I Was Never a Cat Person
In 2019, I was moving out of my tiny apartment and on the lookout for a furry friend. Growing up, I never was really fond of cats: I had a childhood dog, who was tiny and affectionate, and died of old age in 2017. Dogs were fun, and friendly. Cats? Forget about it.
How To Be An Ally
Every year, LGBTQIA+ events are held in June in honour of Stonewall. As we approach June, it's important to learn how to be inclusive and welcoming during pride month - the one month of the year where the LGBTQIA+ community can be open and celebrated. Or, that's the way it's supposed to be, anyway. Even during pride, a lot of queer youth and adults feel excluded and afraid, especially living in specific communities. As a queer ally, it's important to stand up for your loved ones, and to stand up to those who make us feel threatened or scared.
The Glass Siren
There weren't always dragons in the Valley. Long ago, before the Sun was extinguished and the Valleys discarded by filth, there were Humans. A race of no particular talent or skill, the Humans were a greedy and destructive race, whose feet trudged loudly over that which the Earth had given them. When thousands of years had passed, the Earth became uninhabitable, and the Humans became extinct. The Earth, which was no longer known as Earth, was renamed. When the first of the creatures pulled its head from a pile of ash, Crepegrum was born.
