12:21PM - Femme2012

Just wanted to make sure folks got a chance to see this:

Femme2012: Pulling the Pieces Together is a multi-threaded conference and forum for those who think about, talk about, and create Femme as a queer gender and identity taking place August 17-19 in Baltimore, MD. We are currently seeking proposals for workshops, performances, visual art and films. We are also open for early bird registration. Scholarships and volunteer positions are available.  Please go to www.femme2012.com to learn more, and we hope you’ll join our community of femmes and friends!

We are invested in having Femme2012 continue to reflect the diversity and complexity of femme gender, identity, and contributions. We hope for this conference to be a community-building event, as well as an exploration and celebration of what it means to build and live queer femme identities. In particular, we hope that the intersections of femme with race, region, class, access, dis/ability, privilege, oppression, and marginalization will be talked about, given space, meditated upon, constructed, and deconstructed.

12:47AM - Together Our Dreams Come True!

I'm posting here because this is queer and trans related and I genuine believe it can benefit all glbtq. If it is not in alignment with the essence of this community, please feel free to release it.

I want to introduce a brand-new, result-oriented, glbtq friendly community: “Together Our Dreams Come True!”

More than positive thinking is the Spontaneous Fulfillment of Our Dreams!

Are you seeking a group of like-minded people to support each other in making our dreams come true?

Do you want to tap into the secret of manifestation with the help of a Master Group Mind?

Manifestation is an easy and fun process that everybody can do! The universe is full of infinite possibilities and opportunities so abundant that everybody is included.

Would you like to benefit from being with a group of resourceful, action-oriented and supportive people who love to see your happiness, fulfillment and success? You can now!

Let us support you in manifesting:

The romantic relationship you desire
The ideal weight and self-image you want to reach
The project you want to complete
The skills you want to excel
The excellent grades you want to get
The financial independence and freedom you want to enjoy
The perfect job you're looking for
The dream holiday you've been longing to have
The best university you want to be part of
The contribution you want to make to your school/society
The love you want to express to your family
The health and fitness level you want to reach to live your life to the full
The life purpose you're trying to grasp
The book you want to write
And so much more!

Why do you need to do it all on your own? Come and join our community: “Together Our Dreams Come True!” (glbtq_manifest) -- it has been tailor-made to meet your needs. ^_^

Current mood: grateful

7:14PM - We'd love to have your input!

Hi, I'm taking a risk here. I'm posting here because it is queer and trans related and I feel strongly that your input can really make a difference. However, if it is not in alignment with the essence of this community, please feel free to release this post.

I want to introduce a brand-new homo/bi/t friendly community: happy_gay_life This is a community dedicated to building a positive glbtq image by sharing joyful and constructive experiences of being glbtq.

Ever wonder why there are so few glbtq stories/movies with happy endings? I did.

I figure out that it has to come from us. We've got to count our blessings and share these lovely moments with each other: the special moments that bring smiles to our faces, that make our hearts sing, that tickle us, that move us to tears of joy ... on a daily basis.

Every time you share a line of joy, you're contributing to creating a better life for yourself and building a positive glbtq image.

Come! Join us and have some fun!
