trigger warning for discussion of suicide and self harm
(please note: this is probably one of the most vulnerable pieces I’ve ever published. It’s a work in progress and I don’t feel like it’s fully done, but after working on it for six months, I wanted to put it out there to the community- especially at a time when many folks are struggling. please take care as you read it, and please keep in mind that, while I am open to feedback, I would appreciate it if folks could temper critique with kindness)
suicidal ideation 2.0, queer community leadership, and staying alive anyway.
