Here’s a great interview with the editors of a new anthology called Captive Genders. 

An exerpt from the interview:

“Why do you believe there are more LGBT people in prison, per capita, than heterosexual people? 
Smith: Queer people, women-identified people, people of color, poor people, and immigrants are the majority of people who are in prison. We are all in prison because we are the people who are most policed, who in being kept poor, jobless, homeless, and imprisoned ensure the ruling of everyone else and the power of those in control. We are in prison because the LGBT movement is more interested in who can get married, not who is allowed to work, or what kind of work we are allowed to do. We are in prison because we are Other, and Other is not allowed participation, nor are we allowed to challenge the tenets of what participation forces us to do — marriage, the military, policing each other, playing by the rules of the state.”

Fancy Fridays! August 27, 2011

Filed under: thrive updates — jolie & erica @ 12:55 am

 Here at Thrive, we like to make social justice fun! Now, we know most places have “casual Fridays” but  since we tend towards the casual around our office most days, we thought Friday would be a great day to  bring out the snazzy duds and sassy hair accessories. If this goes well, look for more potential alliteration  down the road… perhaps Monday Magic or Witty Wednesdays?

Happy Weekend to you All!
