"Fans for Equality & Justice Charity Auction" for BLM

I participated as a bidder in the recent "Fans for Equality & Justice Charity Auction" for BLM. I won both of the items on which I was bidding, a Person of Interest Finch/Reese fic by draycevixen (AKA corvidology) and a due South Fraser/Kowalski fic by clevermanka, amounting to over $100 that I donated to BLM-related organizations. Both creators requested that I choose local-to-me organizations, so I used the article 20 Black-Led Chicago Groups You Can Donate to Now to Make a Difference in Black Lives as my reference and I chose My Block My Hood My City multigenerational programs and assistances in the inner city, Brave Space Alliance Chicago's first Black-led Trans-led LGBTQ Center, and Circles and Ciphers restorative justice organization led by and for young people who have been impacted by violence.

Alas Con.TXT

Alas, the lovely Pentagon City Residence Hotel in Arlington, VA will be closed permanently in September due to Covid-19 financial complications. What does this have to do with fandom, you may ask. This hotel has been the Con.TXT con hotel for several years. Con.TXT 2020 was cancelled due to Covid-19 and rescheduled to 2021 -- with the closing of the hotel that was already set to be the July 2021 Con.TXT location, Con.TXT 2021 has now also been cancelled.

(And btw, this was one of my favorite con hotels.)

slogans I want to share

I just got the book People of the Pride Parade, a book of photographs taken by Alyssa Blumstein at the 2019 Pride Parade and Dyke March in New York City. Of course many of the photos show people carrying placards and there are many slogans to be seen. Herein I want to share my two favorites:

"Support All Your Sisters, Not Just Your CIS ters"


"God Said Adam AND Eve...So I Did Both"
