#introductions hi i'm georgia, a 20-something cis woman from NCL.
i'm a part-time retail assistant, 'artist' and arts facilitator involved in community arts, heritage and DIY publishing (also occasionally DIY cinema and music). i'm a disabled, fat, queer, autistic commie and i love r&b, pop, 80s & 90s house. i'm also incredibly into the history of art, architecture, fashion and make up.
No fash, SWERFs, TERFs, abuse apologists or ableists pls; mine and my friends' safety is a priority. 💖

Sisters Uncut are putting on a workshop with Sister not Cister on filling in the gender recognition act consultation, this is the resource pack for it and its extremely helpful in forming answers if anyone hasn't yet filled it in. I would quite like to put on a workshop here in Newcastle with these resources because we are seeing a number of TERF organisations having their hateful meetings here and trying to spread their misinformation
hey pals! my friend Phosile is a young black single mother with chronic mental illnesses. please donate, boost and share on your social medias to help her raise money to fund a rare opportunity on a part time acting course 💜
2) I'm not absolving her from or denying any things she's done or said in the past that I disagree with. I just think it's huge that she's doing so much, both in raising awareness and with her money in public, private (bail, scholarships, charity, relief funds) and behind the scenes (the overwhelming majority of her band, dancers, crew, hair and makeup and official photographers are black and consistently booked and busy, employed year-round)
that concludes my thread for now.
1) I'm not projecting anything onto my fave - the reciepts are there if you look for them re: finding inspiration in black radical histories, feminism, prison reform and abolition and black intergenerational wealth (her parents established their own businesses and were comfortable financially by the time she reached schooling age, though she has given back to neighbourhoods in houston & ny and established organisations and housing projects since her DC days)
you could write a thesis on the imagery in lemonade and formation (some already have done), but i would just like to mention that on her 25th b'day, ms knowles released an album that she would go on to shoot (& co-direct) videos for every song. it also featured a song heavily inspired by new orleans bounce (like formation) and the lead single's music vidro was shot on a former plantation (unlike 'lemonade' it also had a josephine baker-inspired dance break).
For the VMAs in 2016, Beyoncé invited the mothers of Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant & Eric Garner (Lesley McSpadden-Head, Sybrina Fulton, Wanda Johnson & Gwen Carr) as her guests, and to walk the red carpet - all had featured in 'Lemonade' (she also brought along some of the other women and girls featured in the film)
