#GIVINGTUESDAY at the AMPLIFY Project

Today is #GivingTuesday. We ask you to consider a donation to #AMPLIFY – we are trying to raise $600 to produce tee shirts. It is a modest goal to support a community project. We are about 15% there already! And this is our starting point – a pink crew neck shirt in sizes XS to […]

Is an #AMPLIFY Tee Shirt (fundraiser) a Useful Form of Resistance? #GivingTuesday

Here’s our appeal for #GivingTuesday. We need to raise $600. We’ve kicked around the idea of a tee shirt fundraiser in the past, but never came up with a concept beyond using our logo (designed by Kai Devenitch): The ongoing discussion of wearing safety pins combined with this creative anarchist button response got me thinking […]

Take Our #AMPLIFY Tee Shirt Survey & Resist UPDATED

If you are interested in purchasing a tee shirt (as a fundraiser) either for yourself or to donate to another participant, please complete this survey. We need feedback on the style of shirts we order, the slogan/logo and some other details.

If you need a little “grrrr” to get you going, last night someone trolled me through this survey. It wasn’t pleasant to read, but the nasty comment illustrates why we need to lift up the narrative of everyday lives. This person has been trolling me since I wrote a blog post about Dalia Sabae, a bisexual woman of color who was murdered by her husband a few weeks ago. It takes a measure of commitment to the hate to log into a survey & work some personal slams against me into the responses. If you want to read more about that, go to my Facebook page.

What better way to celebrate the awesome #WeAreFamily tee shirts designed exclusively for the GLCC by Commonwealth Press than to make a video? Great minds think alike […]

We Are Family

We Are Family Pittsburgh

One of my favorite things about my Ledcat is that she is a good sport when it comes to supporting me. Whether it be volunteering her time, attending an event or wearing matching tee shirts to Art All Night, she’s usually game because it matters to me. These tee shirts were designed by Dan Rugh […]

My Pierogie Pillow

What is my most prized possession? Well, I excluded living creatures so I went searching the house. And I picked this:   Ledcat found this adorable pillow via Commonwealth Press and purchased one as a Christmas Gift for me. It is adorable, but it is also practical – I prop my head up with it […]
