editors, like librarians, have superpowers, and should be respected and feared in equal measure

The first Pride was a riot.

Trans women of color started the fight for queer liberation fifty years ago.

"Because of the binary the U.S. has created of winners and losers, we often think of Indigenous peoples as on the losing end of history without understanding the miracle of Indigenous life today and the fact that there are elements of a future society premised on justice and sustainable relations between human and nonhuman worlds existing within Indigenous cultures themselves." -- Nick Estes

In 2006, [Chibanda] told the city health department he wanted to start a mental health programme there.

Neither the department nor the clinic staff were enthusiastic. “The clinic told me the nurses were too busy,” Chibanda said. “And there was no space for me to work inside the building.” So he set up a bench in the yard.

Grudgingly, the clinic lent Chibanda the services of its “Grannies” – middle-aged or older women with little education, who earn a small stipend doing community health work.
