The need for trans separatistic spiritual spaces

TW: transphobia, transmisogyny, castration I’ve been thinking a lot about the galli lately. Partly because I’ve read this book about the Mother Goddess Cybele and partly because I’ve had a few run-ins with transphobes in Pagan spaces. The galli, if you’ve never heard of them, were a class of priest/priestesses who worshipped Cybele. They wereFortsätt läsa ”The need for trans separatistic spiritual spaces”

Cold anger and inspiration

I’ve been experiencing a strange sort of anger lately. It’s not like the one I’ve had in the past. Anger before had always been like this red hot feeling pulsating beneath my skin. Like a bomb waiting to go off. Something I’ve spent most of my life trying not to feel. This new anger isFortsätt läsa ”Cold anger and inspiration”

This week, the city feels like ours too (almost)

The city feels more colourful and brighter and gayer than usual. There are LGBTQ+ workshops, lectures, plays and fun family activities happening everywhere in town. It feels like Gothenburg belongs to us queers too this week. But I also see people scoff and complain about the rainbow flags. And I and many people like meFortsätt läsa ”This week, the city feels like ours too (almost)”

Celebration Time

Rainbow flags all over the city. Here at the Nordstan shopping mall. The local Pride festival is happening next week and it’s the first non-socially distanced one since the pandemic. So looking forward to it! In other news, I just finished the first chapter of the second novel of the series I’m writing. I’m aimingFortsätt läsa ”Celebration Time”

This Pride Month, remember those who fought for your rights

It’s finally Pride Month! For those of us lucky enough to live in a place where we are allowed to openly be ourselves, this mean we’ll get to party, parade and celebrate. And that’s awesome. But we cannot forget all the millions of people worldwide who are still living under violent cishet oppression. So, soFortsätt läsa ”This Pride Month, remember those who fought for your rights”

A retrospective and some advice for newly out and younger trans people

//Content warning: transphobia, depression, suicidal ideation// When I look back at my life, I have one major regret: that I didn’t transition earlier. I learned what trans meant at 15, back in 2005. I didn’t come out before 2014 and, because my country’s trans health care is slow as all hell, I didn’t start myFortsätt läsa ”A retrospective and some advice for newly out and younger trans people”

The unhelpful common trans narrative – and why it’s hindering further acceptance

I’d like to start this post with a thought experiment. If you are right-handed (or the opposite if you are left-handed), imagine that you lived in a world where less than 1% of the world was. Your whole life you were scolded every time you used the hand that felt natural to you. People toldFortsätt läsa ”The unhelpful common trans narrative – and why it’s hindering further acceptance”

Important to know if you want to help the Ukrainian people

People all over the world have come together to help the people of Ukraine after the Russian invasion. And while that’s heartwarming, donations of too much supplies have created a logistical nightmare for the organisations helping the refugees. The NGOs are now asking for monetary donations rather than material things which are difficult to storeFortsätt läsa ”Important to know if you want to help the Ukrainian people”

How to help Ukraine in these difficult times

This morning, in the early hours of Thursday the 24th February, Russia invaded Ukraine. Many civilians have already been killed by bombings that have happened all over the country; once again in history, innocent people have to pay with their lives for the power-hunger of a megalomaniac. It is the duty now of every personFortsätt läsa ”How to help Ukraine in these difficult times”

A great book about an important subject

If you ask a Swedish person to name a gay writer, the first name that will almost always pop up in their mind is ‘Jonas Gardell’. This famous author published Passionspelen, a gay love novel, in 1985 and has since written many highly popular books and screenplays, becoming a household name. He is also aFortsätt läsa ”A great book about an important subject”
