I’d like to read (and link to) more blogs by people whose experiences are different from my own to educate myself by hearing different realities. I’ve found a few already and will update my blogroll soon. But if anyone has any recommendations, please leave them in the comments section!
I’m especially interested in blogs about the following topics (by people who experience them) but of course, please feel free to point me toward blogs that you feel would help educate me and others:
- 2 Spirit
- LGBTT2QQIAA* People of Colour
- LGBTT2QQIAA Native people
- LGBTT2QQIAA people with dis/abilities, including neurodiversity issues
- LGBTT2QQIAAoutside of North America
- LGBTT2QQIAA fatties
- sex workers
- any social justice or feminist oriented blogs
*LGBTT2QQIAA = lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, 2-spirit, queer, questionning, intersex, asexuals, allies. If anyone has any suggestion for a replacement for LGBTT2QQIAA, please let me know! I like queer for myself to lump together all my own identities but I know a lot of people don’t like it for themselves. I’ve been very guilty of shortening it to LGBT but am increasingly uncomfortable with how this removes the visibility of so many people. At the same time, I don’t want to use all the letters without being informed and examining my own assumptions. I haven’t come across a term out there that is truly inclusive. Debates on whether or not all these groups of people should even be lumped together abound and I won’t go into the politics of that right now except to say that I feel strongly about solidarity. Thus my desire to inform myself.
