LGBTQ+ Fundraisers to Support:
-The Toyin Project
We’re at $745/$1k for The Toyin Project #DoSomethingForMe Grant to support 10 Black LGBTQ+ individuals with homelessness, rent, food, transition goals, mental health treatment, escaping abusive/unsafe environments, medical bills, etc. Looking for a few more donors to reach our goal! Im giving $100 to 10 people each so I only need enough to support 3 more people! This grant is named after Oluwatoyin Salau, the Black activist who lost her life tragically and nobody helped her when she needed it.

It’s the way black people can’t be happy for any of our achievements, without someone saying, ‘Why is it important?’ or ‘What does skin color have to do with it? I prefer qualifications.’ Like, I don’t know. After centuries of oppression and mistreatment, do we not deserve to celebrate positivity and representation? Or even worse, us being seen or heard is played off as some sort of identity politics or topical conversation by certain groups. We are not just someone’s identity politics, we are human beings.

These were all murders. They were not accidental. All of these innocent people: men, women AND children. Were murdered because they were black. Not because they were violent. Not because they were threatening, but because they were black. Something has to change. We have to MAKE a change. Black lives matter. Black men. Black women. Black children. Non-Binary blacks. Trans blacks. Every single one of their lives matter. Your friends. Your neighbors. Your teachers. Your brothers. Your sisters. We are the change.

this list isn’t even close to being a quarter of the wrongful African American deaths in America and if there is anyone you’d like to add please reblog and add. never stop adding. reblog and add stories of those you know and those you don’t. we need to hear their stories and their names.

I’m a Black queer artist based in Portland, OR. I’m passionate about Black liberation & representation. I paint to empower myself and others but most of all, I want to show the spiritual experience of Blackness, that we are made of stardust and our power transcends to the heavens. I’ve been struggling the past week trying to hustle as an artist and I’m still trying to achieve something life changing, but I’m reaching for the stars and never giving up!

Hello guys, sorry for long time no art but I’ve been busy on my other platforms sharing resources and news for the Black Lives Matter movement, so art is currently on pause.
Either way, this is a guide I illustrated for user chivrik on Instagram on how to properly blur and de-trace protest photos. Many protesters have gone missing or turned up dead because they were traced through images they appeared on. Don’t help pigs and protect one another. ACAB and Black lives always matter.
If you need tips on protests, what is acab, defunding/reform of police, how to stay safe and links for charities/petitions, my Instagram is @/paperballz and there are saved highlights with the information. Or you can dm me.

Here’s what Anonymous has done so far:

and my favorite:

The Reciepts:
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
spread the word y’all
Edit: Clarification: YourAnonCentral is NOT the “official” Anonymous account. There is none since it defeats the whole purpose of the movement and I thought that went without saying. Furthermore it’s comes to my attention that they are a TERF, and if they’ve changed their viewpoints is something I don’t know. However, from what I’ve seen the info they provided and posted were legitimate. If you want to know what Anonymous is currently doing, the hashtag OPDeathEaters and Anonymous on Twitter can provide insight on that. They’ve done much more since the release of this post and I’m sure you can find other receipts and links in the reblogs.
