Join us in raising funds for the first trans housing program in the Bay Area - Queens Cottage Shelter - a partnership with Trans House.

Welcome to Queens Cottage Shelter!

Thank you for viewing our campaign. We are a small, grassroots organization that is working with the community to open the first Bay Area trans housing program - Queens Cottage Shelter. 

Trans* people are often shunned and abused by the shelter system; they are often forced to sleep on the streets because they are abused and harassed by other shelter residents. Trans* women sorely lack a safe haven, where they can go for supportive housing. Queens Cottage Shelter will work with local partners to help empower residents reach for their goals of recovery, employment, school, and stable housing. 

We hope you will join us with passion we have for trans* affirming housing! This dream needs your passion and financial support. Thanks!

are u tired of listening to me talk shit about riot grrrl yet?



discussing the obvious lack of interest that today’s riot grrrls have as to why black women weren’t/aren’t present in this movement, among other things.

A lot of people think that this phenomenon of black women being demonized for doing certain things while white women get praised for the exact same thing is a new phenomenon but it truly isn’t. This shit has been going on forever, and riot grrrl is a great example as to how deep it goes and how many different ways it can be manifested. At my first introduction to riot grrrl, I was very amazed at the fact that nobody shamed these women for being angry. And today I still think about it, how the angry white woman gets by without being casted as a monster. Of course, I know why. Anybody with the ability to see through glass knows why.

I used to think that when it came to Riot Grrrl, the only thing needed to be done was throw some black girls in the mix and everything will be balanced. this is a very screwed and fucked up way to view the issue because black women of the 90s rioted like hell, with Lil Kim rapping about oral sex like it was nobody’s business and TLC changing up the game when it came to women publicly lamenting about beauty standards while simultaneously looking down on men who weren’t shit. But the issue here is that these women were (and still are) dragged through the dirt, despite how revolutionary they were. And so are all other black female artist who aren’t seen as feminist icons but as vulgar and vapid sluts. No one is making documentaries on how many lives these women have impacted. Is this because these women aren’t showing their feminism through a punk rock lense, like Bikini Kill? Or is it because we just aren’t considered people in this movement?

Indigenous futurism




"without us you wouldn’t have any rights!" without you we wouldn’t have to fight for them

Always this. Always.

"Remember that men gave women the right to vote!"

And remember that men should never have been at such a social and political advantage as to be able to literally give and take away rights from groups of people.

“In a capitalist society, it should not be surprising that we tend to measure health in terms of productivity. Self-care and workaholism are two sides of the same coin: preserve yourself so you can produce more. This would explain why self-care rhetoric is so prevalent in the non-profit sector, where the pressure to compete for funding often compels organizers to mimic corporate behavior, even if they use different terminology.”
