Do You Have The Right To Serve?

This is a great, amazing thing that's being done. Reminds me of the civil rights sit-ins of old...THEY REALLY NEED HELP SO GIVE THEM A CALL! Please forward this amazing volunteer opportunity onto as many people that you can. - LOVE YA, FAITH

This fall openly gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender young adults who are willing to serve will attempt to enlist in the military in thirty cities across the country. When their desire to serve is rejected, young adults will sit-in at the recruitment centers. Each city will have its own schedule and demands. In all, over 1000 young adults across the country - LGBT and heterosexual, Christian and non-Christian - will sit down in the fight for equality.

we have no idea what the day will look like, and it may end much
earlier or later, but plan on 4pm and you can decide what to do from

*What to Bring

It is in a plaza in front of the Hollywood Entertainment Museum
and the Knitting Factory Club where we can gather, talk about the day,
prepare, and then move to the Armed Forces Career Center a half block
down around 10:30 or 10:45am.

If you come after 10:30/10:45:
Meet us at the Armed Forces Career Center at: 7080 Hollywood Blvd,

For directions to the recruiting center/ Longs drugs:

**For parking for the day, there is metered parking on the streets and
two parking garages off of sycamore one behind Longs (north on
sycamore off Hollywood) and one half a block down Sycamore Ave. I
recommend Carpooling! If you don't have a ride, let me know and we'll
figure it out. I also recommend public transportation if you are close
to it, the Hollywood/Highland stop off the Red Line Metro is very
close to our recruitment center.

**If you are planning on being arrested please email me with your
contact information, address, drivers license number, emergency

I will continue to keep you updated on any important information you
will need to know for Tuesday.

Peace and peace,

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

The Memorist That's Me!

Just call me the memoirist.
People often say they remember me.
And I can't forget sh**, and just filled out a new HSAM research request UCI had sent me, so...


Reality for me? Just temporarily misplacing, or actively trying to forget, more things than the rest of humanity, and nonetheless it just comes back screaming to life over and over again like Groundhog Day (the movie remains a small personal comfort).


But. Living with hyperthymesia is fine, useful even. I hunt those oppression would use with it some days, on others I work on sharing a new sys with the public featuring my library of screenshots, and those like mine for my various cases in a new and innovative way. Partly book, partly website, all me. A lot of white people need to read themselves NOW I think, what they said THEN, ya know?

For the last year and half, I've also been working with a therapist who's diagnosed me with hyperthymesia. Which has led to realization after realization and I'…

Faith Cheltenham Bio

Faith Cheltenham


There are so many different aspects of Faith Cheltenham’s life and career––writer, community organizer, advocate, activist, lecturer, poet, social media expert, digital strategist––that she is currently working to develop a single unifying “theory of Faith.” (It might be easier if you keep in mind Faith lives with hyperthymesia, or the inability to forget her own memories.) Then you too might be able to “keep thefayth” and learn to live in a future where gender and sexuality quite easily bend and every single Black life matters. 

Faith got her start in LGBT advocacy as a Human Rights Campaign intern on the Gore 2000 campaign, and in 2002, she co-founded UCLA’s BlaQue for LGBT/SGL students of African descent. In 2006, she appeared in the Emmy winning reality series on race in America, “Black. White.” produced by Ice Cube. 

After spending time working in corporate America doing digital strategy for Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York and co-creating …
