i got to hang out with these two lovely gents yesterday. johncagz and his boyfriend are the sweetest hunksacks you’ll ever meet.
So I have this sister named Tani Ikeda.
Tani and I met while on the same dance team in college and both, similarly, were doing social justice work on campus. Naturally we clicked and hung out and now, 8 years later, we’re both doing our own things and only see each other once in a while, but catch up like we never stopped.
Tani co-founded this amazing organization called imMEDIAte Justice which seeks to equip girls with media skills so they have the power to hold conversations about sex, gender, love and relationships in their own lives. Now 5 (6?) years old, the org has held summer camps here in LA/around the country and also in Beijing, China and Kampala, Uganda. It’s really transformative stuff, and trust that Tani and her work have been a huge inspiration in my own development.
They need support to keep going, so if you are able please throw a coffee or a lighting rig their way in the form of a donation.

I unsuccesfully spent a long time trying to convince the state of California that travelers just see it as northern or southern and maybe if they have done their research you can toss in a central. They however see the state broken up into twelve regions and since they are the client here is a map of California broken up into those twelve sections with the highlights of each region.
