"Each and every one of us has the capacity to be an oppressor. I want to encourage each and everyone of us to interrogate how we might be an oppressor and how we might be able to become liberators for ourselves and for each other."
I love Staceyann Chin, but it’s so weird and sad to come across this video knowing that she’s performing at MichFest this year.
Staceyann Chin is once again listed as a performer for the 2014 Michigan Womyn’s Festival, along with Climbing PoeTree and Toshi Reagon. Now might be a good time to see which of your faves are playing this year and how maybe this can be interrupted as trans women continue to be intentionally excluded from the festival. http://www.michfest.com/performances/index.htm

But for we old school girls who don’t want to show up at every single event just ‘cause… I don’t tweet–I have nothing to say. I’m not on Facebook. I mean it sounds like I have plenty to say, but that’s to people who I’m in a room with. I’m not that interesting, and the rest is none of your business." - Gina Torres
