And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when Earth’s mightiest heroes and heroines found themselves united against a common threat. On that day, the Avengers were born.
Uhhhhm so @ingridmichaelson is basically one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. She high fived me for working at home in my pajamas and thanked me for putting #GirlsChaseBoys on @Upworthy. And her show/new album are amazing. Def check it out. #lightsout #ingridmichaelson (at The Green-Wood Chapel)

A fitting “lights out” on my time in New York, at #IngridMichaelson’s #LightsOut show drinking “Lights Out” wine. w/@megsokay of course. (at The Green-Wood Chapel)
"The ways in which Jones’ identity as a black trans woman and sex workers’ activist inform her arrest can’t be ignored. Much like CeCe McDonald’s arrest was impacted by racism and transmisogyny, Jones’ arrest is impossible to separate from her race, gender, trans status, and public activism around sex work. TransAdvocate points out that trans women are already disproportionate recipients of police scrutiny, and trans status can intersect with racial profiling to make police interactions particularly fraught and dangerous. What research there is on the interactions between trans women of color and police tells us that police intimidation is a constant reality, even without a legitimate basis for arrest. If anything about the situation can be interpreted to relate to sex work, the odds are that much worse."
