Moment to Pause to honour the Genderqueer Afro Excellence in your life.
Of course I am going to spotlight myself! I am genderqueer, Afro Excellence.
Although life is tragic I usually give out the truth like the sweet treat it is! My authentic self. In some moments I am in awe of how my life is progressing. I am my younger self’s plea to the universe and my Ancestry’s wildest dream. I am so grateful! I am still learning and also know somethings. I know I deserve respect! I know what I offer my community is genuine support for liberation.
I made original design stickers that I can post around and share. I especially love the I KNOW MY pouch design and differently abled queer stickers. They give me the regular affirmations I need. In addition, I wrote a zine to highlight the systemic racism and genderphobia in my life — the Beautifully Brown, like me e-zine, available for free.
I do this work to honour the Trans + Genderqueer folks of our Ancestry. May your lessons and ways of being resonate in me!
