In cooperation with Black and Pink, we are providing free copies of THE COLLECTION to transgender and queer prisoners who request it. Black and Pink maintains a penpal service and other support to LGBTQ people impacted by the , with over 2200 people on their newsletter mailing list alone. They also survive completely via donations of cash, technology and time and operate as an all-volunteer group. Books are in high demand for all prisoners, and as we started work on our first title, we knew that one priority would always be making our books available to LGBTQ people in prison, who are disproportionately affected by the prison industrial complex.

Stop talking about Self-Care
In the last 3 years as I talk about the Healing Justice (HJ) work I am involved in I am met with dueling responses of either deep yearning and curiosity about sustainability or a look that says “how sweet” and “call me when you’re ready to do some real work.”
Each response often leads to the introduction conversations that get stuck on the idea that HJ is only about the practice of “self-care.” Self-care is important and essential but lets not get stuck here.

My friend Mira Bellwether has started an incredible new project called “Fully Functional (Formerly known as “Fucking Trans Women”). Read below to find out about this AMAZING project and how you can become a part of it.
“Fully Functional: A Zine About Fucking Trans Women”
…is a collaborative DIY (Doin’ It Yourself) zine about the sex lives of trans women. It is designed to help trans women and our lovers share information about how we have good sex and what we do when we have sex that works.
The project of Fully Functional is to create an open-ended community resource for trans women and our lovers interested in sharing information about sex and our sex lives. Published as a digital zine and, beginning with issue #1, a print zine, “Fully Functional” is designed to be an accessible medium for communicating and sharing information with each other. It is the first and only sex zine dedicated exclusively to the sex lives of trans women and our lovers, and most basically begins with the question “How?”, as in, “how do I have amazing, fulfilling, passionate, hot, toe-curling sex?” Contributors are invited to discuss the ins and outs of their own sex lives, with no one answer privileged over another. There are as many answers to the question “how do I have good sex?” as there are contributors, and with that in mind “Fully Functional” has been designed as a sort of community cookbook . Our zine is a community resource for sharing our knowledge, discoveries, and practices with one another and our lovers.
