So I tried to put together Maria’s outfit from “Nevada”, and I think it turned out alright. It’s actually a pretty neat outfit.
And one AS Maria
today at the bookstore i asked the lady working if she had any lgbtq books that i could check out and her eyes magnified in what i mistook as horror and i thought i had offended her and then she said “i have a bag of lesbian fiction in the basement i’ve been waiting for someone to finally ask” and she all but burst down the stairs to get them for me

Every year, the Lambda Literary Foundation hosts one of the most amazing opportunities for LGBT writers—the emerging writers retreat. This one-week writing program gathers four dozen emerging queer authors on a college campus each summer to study with talented instructors and engage each other’s work.
The application for the 2014 workshop is due today, April 1, 2014, but it is very easy—essentially a cover letter and a writing sample.
If you’re a trans writer and you (1) get in and (2) apply for a scholarship, the folks here at Topside Press will help you fundraise to cover remaining tuition, boarding, or travel expenses.
If you’re a trans woman, it is especially important for you to apply—in the entire history of the LLF retreat only one trans woman has ever attended, and we’d like to see that change.
