“It is evil to profit from deliberately making people sick, then selling them a ‘cure’ for their illness. This bait and switch has put millions of dollars in the Sackler family’s pockets, and hundreds of thousands of Americans into the ground.” . Photographer Nan Goldin and West Virginia-based collective Queer Appalachia are among the coauthors of a statement denouncing the pharmaceutical patent recently acquired by "opioid billionaire" Richard Sackler. The Sackler Wing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum's Sackler Center for Arts Education are two of many cultural institutions across the country associated with the family, which owns the pharmaceutical company that developed OxyContin. Read our news story on our site. . Images: Goldin’s 1983 photograph “Nan and Brian in Bed,” part of her landmark exhibition “The Ballad of Sexual Dependency.” > Goldin at a protest at the Met’s Sackler Wing in March. . @nangoldinstudio @queerappalachia @ryanjhampton @metmuseum @guggenheim #opiodcrisis #queerappalachia #nangoldin

#Repost @queerappalachia with @get_repost ・・・ We are part of a statement published in @artnet today by @nangoldinstudio’s @sacklerpain Project & @ryanjhampton in regards to the Sackler family patenting opioid treatment drugs. We are grateful to have the opportunity to voice a rural perspective in the opioid epidemic that is devastating our home. The Sackler’s like to clean their money & their name in art. A fundamental part of the Sackler’s business plan is that Appalachia / poor rural addicted people are disposable & no one is paying attention to us. Can you imagine a world where the Sackler name chiseled in marble sits outside of the communities that they have ACTUALLY created? They want their name to be associated with priceless art but it really should be associated with Appalachia & the epidemic they created literally in our backyards. Can you imagine passing that beautiful sign with the Sackler’s name on it every time you entered some burnt out meth holler w/o municipalities anymore? Or outside of a pill mill with a line coming out of it on the 1st & the 15th. If you really want to see how Sackler invests in communities, ignore The Upper West side of Manhattan and look @ Appalachia.

A few years ago we had a long weekend in Bend, Oregon and discovered a salsa I was desperate to recreate. This spinach and cilantro salsa verde recipe from the LA Times is very close! 5-6 oz spinach, one bunch cilantro, a jalapeño, zest and juice of two limes, 2-3 garlic cloves, 1/2 cup EVOO, 1/8 cup water, salt to taste. 😋😋😋😋

It’s hard to watch the news of a huge hurricane creeping towards my entire family. 🌪 I hate that I’m so far away. 🌪 And not because of the Hurricane Parties. 🌪 But, you know, because I love you guys. 🌪 Fortunately, no one back home is even a little bit worried, as this meme from @on1yadam demonstrates. . After y’all get power back and clear the trees off the truck, let me know you’re ok. .

There is no right or wrong way to transition y’all From @raaybees “Do not illegitimize me because I am pre-op everything. Look at this damn body. That’s 20 hours of farm work every week. This body is trans and beautiful. Post-op or not fuck y’alls standards of what it means to be trans because half of y’all post-up folks still live with insecurity and judgment in your heart and you’ll only legitimize white trans folks that are post-op. It’s trans POC that are here to make a difference #Cherokee #FTM #WildQueer#queerappalachia #electricdirt

#harmreduction in #Appalachia please join us in making a donation to @thesteadycollective (link in bio) @firestormcoop “Great news!!! At the 11th hour, The City of Asheville has revoked the Notice of Violation issued to our neighbors at Kairos West Community Center. 12 Baskets Cafe is no longer under threat and the City is acknowledging that Kairos is *not* operating an illegal shelter. This outcome was the direct result of huge public outcry and our ability to mobilize as a community. But the fight isn't over. @TheSteadyCollective -- and syringe access more broadly -- is still in danger. The City continues to claim that our bookstore is operating an illegal shelter by hosting harm reduction outreach. We've spoken to our friends at Kairos and 12 Baskets and we're all committed to defending syringe access in West Asheville. We know that the City may be hoping to divide us by narrowing their focus -- it won't work! The relationships we've built over the last couple months give strength to keep up the struggle. #whenwefightwewin #avlzonesforoverdose (- Libertie) from @firestormcoop Please $upport #TSC #ruralresistance #queerappalachia #electricdirt

We’re going to have a unique #fridaynightinthecountry this week. My friend @highmasc (works in queer public health in NYC) had a #q&a on his stories last week where anyone could ask questions about his #phalloplasty. To be able to get them all in it’s going to take two posts @10 images each, we will post them one right after the next with this identical description. Thank You Gaines for sharing your time, experience & expertise with us! As always remember there is no right or wrong way to transition! I also feel like we have to acknowledge with a post like this many people in our region are po-op (too poor to even consider medically assisted transitioning). #selfmade #ruralresistance #queerappalachia #electricdirt
