Bless you, lindsay jennifer!

Just the words my artist’s soul needed right now.

I’ve only been to Vancouver briefly, but what you’re describing could jsut as well apply to my own formative year’s in Manhattan’s queer ghettos. I knew all these people so well.

I’ve left that cocoon far behind in my own process of integration and normalization, but I’ll always remember.

I saw lots of ugliness, but also tons of love.
