if reincarnation is real, I wonder how many people stare at their own art in museums, listen to music they made in a different life, and read books they don’t remember writing.

Thank you thank you thank you to @mostlyghostie for this beautiful commission! I’ve been wanting a piece of your art for a long time and this is just amazing. I am over the moon to have this in my hands.
I’ll be spending my day finding a frame for it 💚
(Y’all have no idea how long I’ve wanted to do this commission and mostlyghostie made it better than I could have ever dreamed, using my favorite editions and having a wonderful skill)

“Can you understand? Someone, somewhere, can you understand me a little, love me a little? For all my despair, for all my ideals, for all that — I love life. But it is hard, and I have so much — so very much to learn.”
— Sylvia Plath, “The Journals of Sylvia Plath”

Girlfriend: "Oh, a book from Neil Gaiman"
Me: "And it has a cat on the cover"
Girlfriend: "Look, that other edition is a good deal cheaper"
Me: checks the other edition
Me: "But this one has a cat on the cover!"

A rainbow stack of Trans Books
I've rewritten this caption over & over. I've researched & written stats for trans, as well as queer hate crime. I've written about my own experiences. I wanted something with impact, to make people think & hopefully make a tiny difference. Except I won't make a difference, & that's okay
I'm tired of hearing about all the anti LGBTQ+ bills. I'm tired of hearing about trans hate. I'm tired of experiencing hate. I'm tired of my family being scared for me every time I go out. I'm tired of constantly fighting between being a proud queer person or living stealth. Both have their pros & cons, but I shouldn't have to pick, I should be allowed to just be
I was trying to write about how just 1 person supporting us makes a difference, how calling something out for being transphobic, homophobic, ableist, racist, etc, can help. But I've written about it before, other people have said it too. We can keep trying. We will never give up, but right now, I'm tired from it all
This pride month, I'm tired. I know others are too & that's okay
But we have 2 of the most powerful tools, books & social media. There is power in reading banned books. They are banned for reasons. We can have a quiet revolution. Read queer books all year. Read queer books from different countries, read fiction, non-fiction, read poems, & fan fiction. Read & share books. Read about different identities & different experiences. Educate yourself, because right now, that knowledge is power. Don't let them erase us. I've seen how this community can pull together.
So, bookblr, I ask 1 simple thing. Please keep reading & sharing queer books all year, not just pride month
For those reading this, you are never alone 💙
