My bookstore, Barinfood, is hosting an event a week from today (Saturday, May 11th, at 3pm) for trans* individuals, and their family, friends, and significant others. It is a book reception and meet-and-greet for Eleanor Hubbard and Cameron Whitley’s recent book Trans Kin, a compilation of resources and anthology of experiences of the family, friends, and significant others of trans* individuals.
Eleanor and Cameron’s hope, in publishing the book, was to reach out to the family, friends, and significant others of trans* individuals and to help them understand what their loved one is going through and that they are not alone. By assisting the loved ones of trans* individuals, they hope that the loved ones will be more supportive, and that trans* individuals will benefit from increased support systems.
If you’re in the Boulder or Longmont area, I really hope you will be able to make it out! Even if you are not trans* or the family or friend of a trans* individual, I hope you’ll be interested in showing your support.
More info is one the Facebook event, and please, even if you don’t reblog this post, please RSVP and invite your friends. By doing so, you really help us reach a greater number of people. If I can reach just one unaccepting mother, father, significant other, sibling, whatever… If I can reach just one person and help them to accept their loved one(s) just the way they are, I will consider this event a success. Thank you so much for your help.
I’m looking to move from KCMO. I’ve really only driven through Colorado, the only reason I picked there was because I want to be in cleaner air, closer to mountains and I want to be outdoorsie.
Do you like living in Boulder? What’s it like there? Where are some good places to look for apartments? Obviously I know that I might not be living IN Boulder, so what surrounding communities are good?
Other Colorado people in general, do you like where you live?
Any input would be great.
bakersaysrun asked: do you guys know your a bunch of white rich brats?
There certainly are a few rich white brats here in Boulder, but you’re generalizing a little too much… I know plenty of non-rich, non-white and/or non-brats who live here, too.
A+ spelling though, nice work.
Do you guys really care if I tag posts? I’ve become a really lazy tumblr-er so if I were to stop tagging I’d reblog more often; what do you think?
aupairincolorado asked: Great blog, Boulder is amazing :D
fire-onthe-mountain asked: i'm so happy your blog exists.
Why thank you! I’m happy followers like yourself exist :)
