    Truth! That’s why it’s so important to know yourself, to choose your friends wisely, and to never let the world get you down. If I stayed down every time an “enemy” tried to make me fall or a “friend” turned out not to be a friend at all, I surely would not be here typing this for you today and that is the damn truth. Blessings and light spiritual family! :)

    It’s so infuriating how Michael Brown, a seventeen year old boy who was brutally murdered, gets “he was no angel” in his fucking obituary but joan rivers who literally wished an entire group of people death gets a week of mourning and footage of her working at soup kitchens a billion years ago

    Let’s stop HIV in New York City

    • If you are HIV-negative, PEP and PrEP can help you stay that way.
    • If you are HIV-positive, PEP and PrEP can help protect your partners.

     

    Daily PrEP

    PrEP is a daily pill that can help keep you HIV-negative as long as you take it every day.

    • Ask your doctor if PrEP (Pre-exposure Prophylaxis) may be right for you.
    • Condoms give you additional protection against HIV, other sexually transmitted infections, and unintended pregnancy.

     

    Emergency PEP

    If you are HIV-negative and think you were exposed to HIV, immediately go to a clinic or emergency room and ask for PEP (Post-exposure  Prophylaxis).

    • PEP can stop HIV if started within 36 hours of exposure.
    • You continue taking PEP for 28 days.

    Many insurance plans including Medicaid cover PEP and PrEP. Assistance may be available if you are uninsured. Visit NYC Health’s website to find out where to get PrEP or PEP in New York City.

    Tunisian Island Becomes Street Art Hub, Raises Questions of Politics in Graffiti.

    Whether cave paintings or hieroglyphics, Africans have been painting on walls for centuries. However, the idea of turning open streets into an open outdoor gallery and exhibit is something relatively new to North Africa’s largest island and Tunisia’s most popular tourist destination Djerba.

    The initiative, curated by Tunisian-French artist Mehdi Ben Cheikh in collaboration with Paris-based art gallery Galerie Itinerance, is called Djerbahood features works from around 150 artists spanning 30 different countries, including Sweden’s ROA, Alexis Diaz from Puerto Rico, Stinkfish out of Colombia, Brazilian muralist Claudio Ethos, French artist Brusk, Moroccan calligraphist Abdellatif Moustad, and Tunisian street artists eL Seed and The Inkman.

    Dealing with issues ranging from history and politics, to spirituality and tradition, Djerbahood, is a collaboration of epic proportions. Whether intentional or not (and I think not), the name calls to mind the racism that exists in the world of street art and graffiti culture that has, in recent years, both omitted and excluded the contributions made by black and brown artists in the popularization of this art form. Were in not for movies like Wild Style and Style Wars, the origins of resistance graffiti might all be forgotten from popular memory.

    However, with the growing number of street artists and street art emerging from this area of the world in recent times, it would’ve been more interesting had they featured a selection of artists from around the African continent. Countries like South Africa and Senegal are home to some of the continent’s growing local street art scenes. Due to its size, it somewhat eclipses the grassroots graffiti movements across North Africa made headlines when #ArabSpring was a trending topic, and seemed to fade as quickly as it was noticed by the west. Then again, the politics behind this open art affair, due to unveil September 20th, aren’t rooted in Pan-African sentimentality, being sponsored by parties from France and Tunisia.

    This project forms part of a growing trend of foreign street artists descending on Africa, from the likes of French artist JR’s “Women Are Heroes" series that stopped in Sierra Leone, Kenya, Sudan and Liberia, to ROA’s "Wide Open Walls" in The Gambia.

    Similarly to the reactions from people in the aforementioned countries, locals in the area have had mixed responses to the art works, from some labeling it as vandalism to others welcoming the diversity and finding inspiration in the larger-than-life paintings.

    "

    We had a lot of trouble with western mental health workers who came here immediately after the genocide and we had to ask some of them to leave.

    They came and their practice did not involve being outside in the sun where you begin to feel better. There was no music or drumming to get your blood flowing again. There was no sense that everyone had taken the day off so that the entire community could come together to try to lift you up and bring you back to joy. There was no acknowledgement of the depression as something invasive and external that could actually be cast out again.

    Instead they would take people one at a time into these dingy little rooms and have them sit around for an hour or so and talk about bad things that had happened to them. We had to ask them to leave.

    "

    weepingreaper-x asked: It makes me really angry that 1 out of 3 aboriginal women are likely to get raped and that most of it is caused by white men. It's 2014 yet this shit still happens and some people still have colonial mindsets. After coming across your blog I began to understand a lot of things that I didn't before. I want to help people who are effected by this and make people aware of what is going on but I don't know how to...

    How you can help:

    You can also help by educating others on how the sexy native/pocahottie Halloween costumes are detrimental to the image of Native women and how it leads to sexual violence. -G
