Volunteers forming a barrier around anti-gay protestors

"

two bowls, six plates, tupperware, silverware, underwear, a skillet with eggs burnt to its surface, three weeks worth of clothes: something always has to give, and the first thing is usually my floor.

i tell everyone who comes over, this is what my brain would look like if it took up physical space, dead flies included. valuable material objects sacrificed to the tile floors of a center city basement bedroom; i put my bare feet on the same surface every morning and it is cold to the touch. i climb back in to bed.

i keep my secrets in my craigslist dresser but i am too scared to watch these words rot away at the bottom of a drawer.

"anna," footsteps, door closes, more footsteps, quiet, -
“it smells like something is decaying in our walls.”

hi i am not really sure what you mean by read!!

the original post is here
it’s on my website with an artist statement here
if you’re talking about the issue of under the gum tree it’s published in, it’s available for download or as a physical copy here! it’s the same photos and statement from here and there’s also some other great art/writing by others in there too

aaaand if you’re talking about like the actual posts that those phrases come from? i could try and track them down again but some are like years old

i really want to photograph sex workers who self identify as feminists for an upcoming project but i don’t really know where to look - it would have to be someone in the area (philadelphia), who either knows someone that i know or IS someone that i know. it would just be like environmental portraits (daily life, getting ready for work, pictures of the space you live in, etc) and some sort of interview about how u believe that being a sex worker and being a feminist can go hand in hand!

please let me know if you/someone you know might be interested!
