Homeless transwoman needing urgent help:

Having to move out of current housing ASAP.
Was due to move start of week, but arrangements have fallen through.

Looking for any leads for trans friendly rooms/sofas/corners of rooms in Washington; need somewhere to live for 4-5 weeks while I get some freelance gigs through for somewhere permanent.

Pretty broke right now, but can cover food, internet contributions, maybe rent if it's not too much.

(boosts appreciated)

Everyone: Hey Cordelia, you have unique skills, experiences, and research for making communities of action more inclusive. Do you want to speak at our conference on {diaspora|tech|content|journalism|democracy|activism|sustainability|social justice}‽

My life: huge social value, little direct economic value.

@socrates haven’t experienced it yet. are you experiencing when viewing local folks or on other instances?

@sydneyfalk yup! asking her in case she passes by a university book shop.

@socrates oooh good decision, didn’t realize federated timeline controls were that fine-grain

Would it be weird if I asked my mom to bring back South Korean and Taiwanese high school civics textbooks from her vacation?

That’d be weird, right?
