My name is Charlie and at this point, this website really is more for my sake than anything else. I am a senior at a university in the United States, studying sociology, and my thesis is around the queer community and religion. I am starting to find my place in the social activism realm and have seen the necessity of education on social inequality issues, which is why I decided to make a blog.
As someone who identifies as queer both in sexuality and in gender, trying to find a collective of queer feminist issues has been a curse and a blessing. On one hand, there is so much out there in the world that is wonderful and creative and just plain awesome. On the other hand, there is so much stuff out there… I’ve found myself at times just being totally overwhelmed of everything that exists that I don’t even know where to start.
So as of right now, at the very beginning, this blog is really just a resource of all of the things that exist out there that relate to issues of sexuality, race, ability, gender, and so many more. I’ll be highlighting videos that I find amazing, giving summaries of research, and getting the lowdown about different organizations.
All of the commentary that I bring to the world, and especially to this website, is greatly influenced by my own privilege. I am white, middle class, and relatively abled. I identify as pansexual and gender queer but really love the fluidity of the term queer.
