remember when trayvon martin was literally killed in cold blood and people were going around calling him a ‘thug’ for wearing a hoodie and carrying ice tea but when a gang of boys rapes a girl they’re just ‘misguided children’
Hi tumbles! It’s my girlfriend Michelle’s birthday on March 4th and she really REALLY needs some women’s shoes- she has one pair of men’s sneakers and feels super dysphoric and gross about it because she can’t put together a cute outfit with sucky shoes like that, and it breaks my heart.
We’re both unemployed from being trans and having matching anxiety disorders, living with family, and have no savings, so I don’t have any money. Like, none. Well, I have $3 but that’s not gonna get momma a new pair of shoes.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
donate to me so that we can get her some shoes
send me your gently used women’s shoes size 14
send resources to inexpensive places to buy larger sized women’s shoes, or clothing donation programs for trans women
reblog this so other people can see it!
Ideally I’d love to surprise her with a bunch of shoes. Because no one wants just one pair of shoes y’all.
Please please please, this would make her so happy. If you’re looking for a way to actively be a good trans ally, this is it. Thanks everyone!
PS- We also need cute socks in a size large enough to be comfortable.
IF TUMBLR CAN HELP SOMEONE GET A FLUFFY CHICKEN, WE CAN GET MICHELLE SOME SHOES!
signal boost ! i wish i could donate ugh i am all about helping trans* people get their shoes.
jabberwockywingnut hey! from what i understand you're looking for people to be committed to writing or just submitting opinions, but do you also accept art/poems etc for submissions? ":)
Yes we do! We’ll accept anything you have to offer. You can apply to be a full time member of CC for each issue, or if you want you can just submit one or two pieces you have in mind. The choice is up to you there :) Thanks for the interest! -Alyssa
Feels like it was just yesterday when I created the preview issue of Camp Climax and sent it to Alyssa. So much has happened and so much has changed in just a few months. (Seriously, just look at the layout change.) It didn’t matter if the zine reached 2 people or 2 million. We started this zine to make our voices heard and that’s just what’s happening. The only thing I’ve ever wanted to do in life was to have some sort of impact on people or teach a lesson that people will remember and use in the future. By the feedback we’ve received, I’d say that I’ve gotten my wish. We went from a staff of two to about ten. I’m glad to have a great bunch of activists that I’m proud to call family. I would’ve never thought Camp Climax would get as big as it has gotten. We’d like to give a HUGE thank you and many virtual hugs to Chantal Claret for being our first guest for CC, Laura Jane Grace from Against Me! for spreading CC, Bunny Bennett for lending her time to chat with us, and to the readers. There’s so much more to come and a ton of things we’re working on at the moment. Can’t wait to share it with you all. - Amber
