Help To Produce, Publish, & Promote SHOW TRANS

About SHOW TRANS

Anonfiction novel about sex addiction, sex work, navigating the MSM scene, a trip West, dissociative identity disorder, and the struggle to find love, connection, and self-actualization as a non-binary trans person. This book will be my most autobiographical (and arguably scandalous) work to date. 

Help me get this book finished and out there! And pre-order your copy, along with other fancy prizes. All donors will be listed on my website and in a thank-you at the introduction of the book. 

Please share and spread the word!

Interview: Elliott DeLine (pt. 2)

Underneath This is pleased to present the second part of the interview with talented writer, Elliot DeLine.

Your novels, “Refuse” and “I Know Very Well How I Got My Name” eloquently describes coming-of-age experiences of queer and trans young adults and youth. What inspired you to write these works?

Thank you. My own experiences inspired these works. I wanted to create something different from was out there already. I wrote the books I wanted to read when I was younger and struggling to find reflections of my own experiences.

Sponsor a Chair for Our Syracuse LGBTQ and Trans* Support Group!

$20 will buy one chair which we can paint, with your name on it!

The Intersections Cafe is a peer support group that was established by CNY for Solidarity in the spring of 2014 in Syracuse, NY. It is a space for LGBTQ people to come together for community support, both emotional and material. Currently, we rent chairs each meeting, on top of the fees to rent the space by the hour. We would like your help to purchase our own chairs. $20 will sponsor one chair. We will be painting and decorating them as a group and if you would like, we can add your name and a dedication on the chair you sponsor. Once we raise enough money, the rest of the funds we raise will go towards rental space.

There are several things that make the Intersections Cafe unique.

  1. LGBTQ people of all ages. We have organizations in Syracuse for LGBTQ youth and seniors, but many of us do not fit those categories. This is a space for all ages, and because of this, we have a lot to offer one another.
  2. The values of intersectionality. Or in other words, we try to emphasize the way that homophobia, transphobia, racism, classism, and other forms of oppression are all interrelated. We realize people are more than just their sexual orientation and gender identity and try to avoid discrimination within our own community.
  3. Transgender leadership. Most groups are gay/lesbian run, and some attempt to be inclusive of trans* and gender nonconforming people. At Intersections, the main demographic we serve is transgender people, but all are welcome to learn, share, and discuss how gender and sexuality affect their lives. We have a diverse group of attendees.
  4. Free food. Coffee plus meals or snacks are provided each time. Volunteers prepare and transport the food. In addition, we make sure there are groceries from our pantry for attendees to take home with them. We realize that the LGBTQ and trans* communitie are much more likely to live in povery.  Mainstream food pantries are often uncomfortable or even unsafe for us. Having food available in safe spaces like Intersections is very important!
  5. Beyond being a support group where people can talk, Intersections provides a point of contact for other supportive resources and services. These include assitance with employment, healthcare, food, and other needs in the LGBTQ and trans* communities.

Please help us maintain this exciting new program! Again, $20 will sponsor a chair, but we are grateful for any donation, no matter how small. Please spread the word and feel free to come to our next meeting!

About Intersections Cafe: “Transgender, genderqueer, gay, queer, crossdresser, lesbian, asexual, bisexual, pansexual, whatever: As long as you are open-minded you belong at the Intersections Cafe! Come vent, share, or just listen… and have a FREE MEAL & COFFEE or TEA! Location is right across from the Centro Transit Hub.”
