Links roundup

Posted by Lashings of Ginger Beer

Below are some websites we thought you might enjoy. Some of these sites are not suitable for work and may contain triggers: this should be clear from the descriptions. In fact, even the titles and descriptions of some are NSFW, so they are beneath the cut.

If you have found any interesting sites you would like to share with Lashers, please put a brief description and a link in the comments. As always, please warn for triggers if appropriate.

"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."

"WE'RE TELLING is a new blog whereby anyone can anonymously share their own accounts of attempted or completed sexual assault or rape. Too often rape and sexual assault accusations go unbelieved, or the victims are blamed for their own assault. We challenge this status quo by inviting survivors of sexual assault to tell their story and help to demonstrate that rape happens; that it happens often; that it happens everywhere; that every single person knows someone who has been affected by rape or sexual assault, whether they believe they do or not; and that individual sexual assaults are a symptom of a broader rape culture."

Stop Blame
is a campaign by the Welsh government to challenge the culture of victim blame in cases of rape and sexual assault.

A Queer Black Mobile Homecoming

"Julia Wallace of Queer Renaissance and Alexis Pauline Gumbs of BrokenBeautiful Press have decided to dedicate the next phase of their lives to collecting and amplifying the social organizing herstories of black women, trans men, and gender queer visionaries who have been refusing the limits of heteronormativity and opening the world up by being themselves in the second half of the 20th century..... We are dedicated to amplifying the herstories we learn by creating an experiential archive in which an intergenerational community can relive the brilliance of these visionary warriors, a hands on method for teaching history, a truly live model of community education."
