My family and I need to get out of Oklahoma. The amount of transphobia here is frightening, and the laws for trans people seem to get worse and worse.
Help a trans family escape to somewhere safe with a support network?
transphobia, us politics, abortion, suicide mentioned
Gentle reminder that abortion access is DEFINITELY an LGBTQ+ issue. This moment has a lot of cis-het female voices, and it should, but the immediate ramifications are going to hit anyone with a uterus -- lesbian and bi cis women, trans men, nonbinary people.
It's also going to affect all femme people, with and without uteruses. It will change the way they are treated and looked at by others, consciously or subconsciously.
That is part of the point of this judicial regression.
Include the concerns of all trans and nonbinary people in your activism for abortion rights, please. Especially those of pre-transition trans men. This group needs to be vocally and specifically included in calls for activism.
Forcing those guys to go through with pregnancies isn't just cruel, it's going to be an actual suicide trigger for some. Believe me.
They are more at risk from this legislation than the average person is. And they will have exponentially fewer resources, and exponentially fewer people to help them -- as usual.

I'm moving to the Seattle area soon to escape anti-trans laws in Oklahoma (they're considering banning all gender-affirming care, and my wife has had actual trans harassment). I have a roommate from Pullman also moving to Seattle.
Does anyone know where I should look to find reasonable (in cost, safety, etc.) housing for 3-4 people?

i have to work from home because i have asthma and catching covid is a major health risk for me. in addition, my ADHD is untreatable due to schizophrenia so i need to work at my own pace. i've been doing freelance video editing (portfolio and contact info below) but that alone isn't enough to keep me afloat. i've also opened up my own etsy shop at http://jette.black
if you're interested in hiring me to video edit, my portfolio and contact info can be found at https://verticallyalignedcarbonnano.tube

I have the opportunity to develop a digital lit curriculum for people being released from incarceration, some of whom have done over 20 years in prison.
This has the potential to have huge positive impacts on their lives; they need to know how to attach a resumé to an email, and how to avoid scammers, among many many other basic skills we all take for granted.
Please if you have any input I would appreciate it because I am not omnipotent and can't think of everything.
Please boost this!

I didn't want to interrupt the thread I was looking at. For anyone who lives in PR or any other territories. I'm very in favor of having them join the us BUT I really want to have an informed opinion about it. Would it help yall if you became a state or would you rather you became fully independent?
