After a bike ride face, at the pond behind my house, watching sunset. I am so deeply appreciative of the stillness. I’ve been thinking a lot about why I write about outdoor shit, why make a point to live somewhere far away from the communities that I am most a part of. Part of it is mental health. It is too much stimulation for me to be in a place where the air feels like it’s buzzing with machines, traffic, humans. I find that when I live somewhere where there’s a lot of people I care about, I lose my sense of self. The last time I lived like that was when I lived with my two best friends in San Francisco. That year I ended up in a weird funk, I’d spend hours googling orgs I wanted to get involved with but never actually going to their events. Instead, I spent my free time biking alone across the Golden Gate Bridge, tracing the curves of Marin County, climbing up hills till I couldn’t breathe. The more social shit is around me, the more I protect myself by hiding from it. But now that I live out here, I feel very able to let people into my life. Because in the end I’m actually a pretty socially anxious person. Living in the mere presence of millions of other humans is draining. There’s also probably something about nursing here, about how fitting other humans into a nursing schedule is actually hard to do. It’s hard to make friends when the stressful things that happen at work can involve getting hit or kicked or bit by your patients, or having human life in your hands and syringes. In this way, it’s nice to not have many people around me here. I can decompress the ways I need to. I can reach out to my friends and family when I’m lonely. I can be challenged and learn through podcasts. The air is clear. There are chickens and turkeys and dogs and horses and this cat. My roommates are chill. I’m not afraid of the dark or the silence and I’ve gotten used to keeping all the doors unlocked. #browngirl #queer #ruralqueers #travelnurselife #browngirlgoeshome #bicyclist #rural #haudenausoneeterritory #socialanxiety #amwriting #travelwriterofcolor #travel #notafraid #butsoafraid #catstalking

Hella cute. I just organized and purged TONS of makeup (HMU if you’re #tpoc ill even cover your shipping) #ruralqueers need makeup too. Priority given. Y’all. I was hella cuuute. And then I was itchy af. I’m prioritizing clean food, chemical-free cleaning products and soaps and supplements. But can I be honest? This makeup purging is an identity shift. #highfemme forevs, y’all, but I’m making and sourcing my beauty routine much more carefully. Starting with wiping all this itch off with a baby wipe that’s safe for your face and your baby’s bum! And going #bareskin the rest of the day. Or week. Not bare lips. Always 💄. I’m allergic to chemicals, not 💀. #mcsmakeupaddict #savvyminerals #seedlingsbabywipes #imasavvygirlnow

Afternoon sun, with bird conversations. And it smells amazing. It’s nice to be able to be gone enough lately to actually feel relief getting back to the woods. #countryqueers #rural #ruralqueers #ruralqueer

🥀Next Wednesday ! Queer Comedy in the Chapel & a Benefit/Meetup for @radicalinclusionwnc in the shop/bar area 🥀 come for one or both and SUPPORT QUEERZ 🌈... Radical Inclusion began in Haywood County circa 2015 as a free day camp to teach marginalized youth in western North Carolina outdoor survival skills+environmental stewardship+social justice. Since then, Radical Inclusion has transformed into a full-service nonprofit, addressing the needs of all marginalized folks in Haywood County. Think of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, and that is how we go about things. First things first: making sure folks are fed. 15.9% of folks in Haywood County are living in poverty. We established an on-site give+take pantry that requires zero paperwork for food insecure folks to utilize. The pantry is supplied by members of the community. We also hand-deliver boxed meals to homeless folks when shelters+kitchens are closed. We offer a micro shelter for folks who would not fit into a conventional shelter operation. This offers a safe space for folks to get back on their feet and reintegrate into the community. Workshops: consent+autonomy so that folks can advocate for others as well as themselves, meditation so that folks have a free+beneficial means to handling anxiety in a world where mental health care is frequently inaccessible In the future, we plan to offer a private unschool for underserved kids in our community. #queercomedyparty #ruralqueers #radincwnc #theswitchavl #fleetwoodsavl @radicalinclusionwnc

Ok, so FYI, world: rural queers are a thing. We may not be as visible as our city kin, but not everyone wants to run away to the city. Some of us like the quiet of the country. Some of us appreciate the cost of living out in the sticks. Some of us can’t afford a move, or can’t afford the cost of city living. Some of us are living in the sticks because we have to. Some of us are living in the sticks because we want to. The city is not the ultimate destination for every single queer person. #ruralqueers #pride #queer #rural #willits #ukiah #lowgap #latergram

8. When you live 3 hours from the closest #pride fest, make your own! . . The sweetest crew rallied in full costume to help celebrate WV’s 155th birthday & my 33rd. . . Thank you SO to all who have donated! If you’d still like to support #countryqueers the fundraiser runs till July 1st! Asking for as many who can to give $3 towards getting the 60 oral histories with rural & small town queers out to the world! . Happy WV Day y’all!!! #inauguralKnottCountyPride !

7. All I want for my birthday is for everyone who reads this to give $3 to Country Queers! . Today is a day of celebration in my world!  It’s West Virginia Day! (The day we seceded from Virginia in 1863 in a sneaky & illegal move which was approved by President Lincoln in an attempt to gain more soldiers for the Union Army). Somehow, I was blessed to share my birthday with the great state. Today I turn 33! . And so, I’m asking you to please donate $3 or $33 to Country Queers today (if you are able) to support this ongoing, volunteer-run, community based, multi-media oral history project.  I’m trying to raise $3,000 by July 1, 2018 to help make the oral histories gathered so far accessible to country queers everywhere.  I’ve had the true honor of interviewing 60 incredible country queers in 15 states since 2013.  Aside from $7,000 raised in 2014 that funded a month long, 7,000 mile, 30 interview-gathering trip – this project has been scraped together in free time and on spare change. . If everyone following this page gave $1 we’d have reached our goal plus! If 100 of you give $3 we’ll have reached our goal!  Please give if you can/as you can! Link in bio!!!! . . P.S. I picked this birthday bouquet for myself cause working on #selflove & also #singlelife. But, I really seriously want to know who’s gonna start the dating app for #countryqueers ?

6. Somehow, all of these pasts seem present in Country Queers.  Silenced histories, a deep love of place, the way history lingers in the land and old barns of my West Virginia home, and a personal need to find rural queer community, to find proof that we can survive and thrive in our country homes. . I had no idea what I was doing when I started this project in the winter of 2012-2013.  I lived in a sweet and very cold old house on the farm next to where I was raised. I had no media training, no media equipment, no experience, no spare $, but a lot of passion.  At that time, there really was almost NO rural queer visibility, and I was intensely frustrated, and super isolated.  I saved up and bought a Zoom H4N and started interviewing friends I’d made through the STAY Project @stayproject (a rad Central Appalachian youth network that turns 10 this summer!). STAY is how I found other young queer people who loved these mountains, and were determined to scout a path future for young folks, especially lgbtq and youth of color, in a region deep in economic crisis. . In the summer of 2013 at @ignitekindred SONG’s gaycation in east TN I sat in a rural and small town convening (facilitated by the brilliant @sapogonia) with queer, trans, and gnc folks from across the South, and listened to stories about what we all loved about the places that raised us, about challenges of living in those spaces across other intersecting layers of our identities. . This project isn’t now, and has never been, “my work.” It wouldn’t exist without hours of conversation with friends and mentors, without the 60 fierce and generous folks who’ve welcomed me into their home & shared their stories, without everyone who has donated so far (please donate now if you’re able!  Link in bio!), without the volunteer transcriptionists who’ve helped get some of these stories out so far.  And without rural and small town queers, near and far, who’ve reached out to say, “we need this, this is important, how can I help?” . Tomorrow is my birthday & I’ll be switching gears to a big fundraising push asking all who can to give $3!
