I'm a Black queer genderfluid disabled Jew. I work hard every day to raise awareness, educate the people around me, and support my Black, PoC, queer, trans, and disabled fam (known or unknown). 

This Patreon will help give me some space to write more, broaden my reach and my audience, and perhaps provide some entertainment while I do it. 

It will also help me pay for self-defense lessons, which, in a time that includes white supremacists calling for war, are an absolute necessity for an amputee. 

I will be figuring out reward levels as I go, and am open to suggestions. This is a work in progress and I would love to hear your thoughts. 
Tiers
Spare a buck
$1 or more per month
  • You get a delightfully warm feeling from just handing me a dollar every month, like a good hug or a delicious cup of tea. Thanks, buddy! 
Caffeination
$5 or more per month
  • You get the enormous satisfaction of knowing that because of you, at least one day a month I will be caffeinated enough to write. 
  • Chance of wacky animal photos greater than zero
Buy me a sammich?
$10 or more per month
  • I love a good sammich, so in addition to the halo you will receive for keeping me fed, I would normally provide access to articles here, but due to PTSD and chronic illness, I just don’t have the spoons. Contact me about being friends on FB for more. 
  • All previously mentioned good feelings and potential for wacky animal photos
Food AND Caffeine???
$20 or more per month
  • Oh, friend. Now you've got me. I can't resist both. Check it out. At this level you get exclusive access to advice once a month. You can contact me here or on FB  for advice or help sorting out an issue. 
  • Yes, you read that right. Emotional work just for you. 
  • Also all previously mentioned good feelings and rewards. 
Wow
$50 or more per month
  • You get the unbelievably and deservedly smug joy of knowing you can spare $50 a month to support a queer trans disabled PoC. Especially in this day and age. But you are well off enough that you can substantially support my efforts to make this world a better place. Put this date in your calendar with a monthly alert, and pat yourself on the back. You're a good person. You're a financially successful person. And your hair, if you have any, looks really great. 
  • Also all previously mentioned good feelings and rewards. 
Whoa
$100 or more per month only 9 left
  • I will personally answer a question or discuss a discrete issue (wrt race, gender, and other issues) a month for any person at this level. 
  • Also all previously mentioned good feelings and rewards. 
Goals
$727 of $1,500 per month
Life as a disabled person is expensive and difficult, and I am currently unable to hold a job. This amount would allow me room to function as both a person and an activist/educator as well as help pay for self-defense lessons.
