 ACKNOWLEDGEMENT 
I am privileged to live, work and create in Tarndanya, on Kaurna land, and acknowledge that the Kaurna People are the traditional custodians and true owners of this stolen land. I respect that their spiritual connection to this land, and cultural beliefs and practices are still as important to the living Kaurna People today, and acknowledge sovereignty has never been ceded and a treaty has not been signed. I pay my respects to elders past, present and emerging.
Always was, Always will be Aboriginal Land.
It's important for me to acknowledge that in my activism as a queertrans, fat, disabled person, I still hold white privilege, and benefit from structures which are founded in colonisation and which uphold white supremacy. It's important to be mindful of this in my work, and continue to put in the work to learn, unlearn and show up as an ally for my BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) siblings.
I'd like to pay respects to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members of our beautiful and diverse disabled and LGBTQ+ communities, as well as past and present disabled and LGBTQ+ leaders and activists who have fought for our access and inclusion within broader society today. May I learn from them, and may I continue their work.
 
 HELLO! 
Welcome to my Patreon page, thanks for coming to have a look!! My name is Ruby Allegra, and I am a queer, genderfluid, disabled artist, activist, and content-creator.
I'm really excited to be able to bring you more of what I love; art, queerness, intersectionality and advocacy, on a platform which I'm hoping will provide a bit of financial support so I can continue to keep creating, educating and fighting.
Through instagram, I've been privileged to be able to cultivate a diverse, supportive and beautiful community, but I just have so much more that I want to say and do, and I really feel like Patreon will be a great extension to this community to facilitate that.

 COMMUNITY ACCESS 
You'll notice that the first couple of tiers listed here on my page don't vary in terms of the rewards they offer. This is because, while I need to be able to be paid for my work, it's also very important to me that what I create and share is financially accessible to as many people as possible. Given that people from marginalised communities, particularly QTIPOC (Queer, Trans, Intersex People of Colour) and disabled folk, face greater barriers with regards to fair (and safe!) access to housing, employment, healthcare and community, it's important that those who wish to support my work and access this community are able to do so, without money being an additional barrier.
Those wishing to access the rewards and content outlined for 'you're an inspiration!' and 'have you tried yoga?' tiers are therefore able to select the tier which aligns most suitably with their financial capacity. If one tier is more doable than another, thats okay, and thankyou so much for your support!

 WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM ME 
On Patreon, I'm hoping to open up more interactive discussion and conversations around disability, queerness, privilege, body image and intersectionality. I'll use polls, q & a's, collaborations and occasional articles, writing pieces and blog entries, with the intent of using this platform to share and collate resources I have collected, created and been recommended over the years. Eventually, I hope to also create and share video content (vlogs, stories and short film-type pieces) via Patreon.

ART 
For those of you primarily following my creative and visual work, rewards and content may include behind the scenes content from photoshoots, fashion/outfit posts, process videos of art and illustration work, and perhaps the occasional makeup video/tutorial, downloadable content, and zines or other creative work/projects.

I'm so excited to share my work, life and passion with you, and as always, thankyou for your love and support.

Love Ruby xx
