So. I had no idea about this app until I went into my doctor and he told me about it. 

LISTEN UP. THIS APP. THIS SHIT RIGHT HERE IS SERIOUSLY A BLESSING. ESPECIALLY TO ANYONE WITH FINANCIAL PROBLEMS (which is kind of everyone now). THIS IS NOT INSURANCE THOUGH. BUT IT WILL HELP YOU OUT. DOWNLOAD THIS APP RIGHT NOW. NO. STOP READING. DOWNLOAD IT

This app allows you to input the prescription you have, select your dose, and then find a place near you (or your own pharmacy) with the cheapest price. Then you click “get code/coupon/discount card,” show that to the pharmacist, and THERE YOU GO. SAVING YOU SOME CASH TO GET YOURSELF A WELL DESERVED DRINK, CANDY BAR, DATE MONEY, SEX TOY CASH, OR GO BUY YOURSELF A HAMSTER AND NAME HIM STARLORD WITH THE EXTRA MONEY

No, but in all seriousness. This app is saving my ass right now. 

I’m Trans* and have Fibromyalgia, and this is really making a difference already. I hope this helps out other people. We all know it fucking sucks to have to pay this much for the medication we need to function in life. 

!!!

this app literally saved my life though this last year of unemployment.

This is my temporary tupperware tropical terrarium. Since I’m unable to move my 55 gallon tank down here with me at the moment, I took a cutting of my Selaginella martensii ‘Jori’ (bottom in the top photo) from it when I visited home a couple of weeks ago and brought that with me instead. It’s one of my favorite plants and it propagates very easily. I have it growing with some sheetmoss and the liverwort I found on a walk last weekend. In the bottom photo you can see the liverwort is putting out lots of new rhizoids.

White folks on tumblr be like, “Please be kind to moths. They are doing their best and deserve respect and kindness. Never step on a flower because they are sensitive and have feelings. Also, why can’t I say the n word?”

you forgot

I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.

1. I am glorious above all things
2. Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3. Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4. Show displeasure clearly.
5. NO
6. Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7. If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.

Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility.

Indiegogo campaign: Help relaunch QTIPOC.com, a safer space for Queer, Trans and Intersex People of Colour worldwide

Why QTIPOC.com? 

I’m 23 but I only started coming out about being queer and trans relatively recently. My hometown was not a safe place for me to be out, ever, especially after I was victim of a queerphobic attack. Just over two years ago I moved to Brighton, England, partially due to its reputation as the UK’s ‘gay capital’. At the time I just wanted to feel safe. The white queer scene felt incredibly hostile and I started searching for a community of other queer and trans people of colour.
On the 21st of January this year we had our first meeting as QTIPOC Brighton. For the first time I felt empowered and safe and for the first time I felt like being queer, trans and a person of colour were not in conflict. Coming out to myself is and has been a long and difficult process but I know that I would not have come this far in terms of self-acceptance without the community I have around me.

I do not currently have any form of stable income and I am not entitled to state support. Without a support network I don’t know what my living situation would be. I have several mental health problems that impact my life on a daily basis but I no longer feel alone. I literally feel like the community I have around me has saved my life.

As amazing as the community of people I have around me is, it isn’t accessible to many people. People in small towns with no visible community, people who cannot travel to meetups, people that cannot join Facebook groups without outing themselves in potentially dangerous situations. If I had had the sense of community and belonging that I have now at 15 I don’t think I would have grown up feeling so alienated and alone.

I have some experience in web development and a few months ago I started QTIPOC.com with that in mind. Within two weeks we had over 150 signups but the site has been held back since due to limited resources. Although I can set up a forum and moderate it I am not skilled enough to create a cohesive and user-friendly website.

I want to relaunch QTIPOC.com. I envisage a site with a main news blog, an active user-friendly forum, a collection of resources and event listings as well as IRC-based chatrooms providing 24/7 support- including at least one operator with training in mental health and suicide prevention online at all times.

I want to create a safer space where we can talk among ourselves, support each other and organise. If we can help one kid grow up feeling less alone then it will be worth it.

Without your support QTIPOC.com may cease to exist. With your support we can thrive.

What do you need funding for?

  • A complete redesign of the site
  • An initial fundraising event in the UK
  • Infographics and physical publicity materials for fundraising at events 
  • Funding for suicide prevention courses for chatroom operators

I can’t afford to donate but it sounds like a great idea. How else can I help?

If you aren’t able to help QTIPOC.com financially you can still help make the project a success- whether you are a QTIPOC or not! Share the campaign on Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter. Please get in contact if you are interested in helping with fundraising or administration!

Thank you so much to everyone that has shared and donated so far! In the last day we have raised £130.

Please keep sharing and keeping the momentum going. Reminder that people raised $55000 for potato salad and more recently £270000 to get Foo Fighters to play in Cornwall. That’s both sad and motivating.
