Category: signal boost

shimamom:

Yesterday, September 6th and today, September 7th 2019, a act of censorship is going down in Brazil. 

The Rio De Janeiro mayor, Crivella, attempted to recoil a Marvel Avenger’s comic from Bienal, an important book event on Rio, for containing a gay kiss between two of the characters, under the defense that it was ‘innapropriate for children’ and ‘pornographic’

As a response to this, Brazilian Youtuber Felipe Neto, has bought over 10K books with LGBT themes and distributed them for free on the Bienal.

However, the current tribunal justice president of Brazil allowed the recoil of the books, and troops were sent to recoil all of them.

They failed.

At the moment I am making this post, THEY FAILED. EVERY SINGLE LAST BOOK WAS GIVEN AWAY. The people present at the event cursed President Jair Bolsonaro with ‘ei, Bolsonaro, vai tomar no cú!’ (Hey, Bolsonaro, go fuck yourself!). We won this time.

But this isn’t the end. 

PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST THIS. THE WORLD AND THE MEDIA NEEDS TO KNOW WHAT IS CURRENTLY HAPPENING. WE ARE GETTING CENSORED, WE ARE GETTING SHUT OFF! AND WE NEED HELP!

Hello all!

I’m still taking a short break from the site to work on my sixth novel (and I’ve got a very busy schedule for the next few months). However, I’m still going to try posting the occasional signal boost.

A phenomenal visual artist, Beth, has reached out to ask for a signal boost for her fantastic graphic novel Lanterns of Arcadia. She’s currently running a Kickstarter to get chapters one and two printed as a single volume. Beth’s work is gorgeous and this is a truly fascinating book, one which I highly recommend.

Here’s what she says about the project:

“Lanterns of Arcadia is now live on Kickstarter!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/spaceturtleart/lanterns-of-arcadia-volume-1

www.lanternsofarcadia.com is a fantasy mystery in which a scientist and a dragon team up to stop demons from destroying a magical library.

The book will contain all of Chapters 1 + 2 as well as an exclusive epilogue (180 pages). I’m also offering art prints, signed books w/ a sketch, watercolor commissions, and a few cameo slots so you can get you or your character in future pages of the comic! Early Bird copies of the book are just $20, so pledge early to get in on the discounted rate.”

She has included some truly stunning artwork of the project:

I really want to see this project come to fruition. It is beautiful and a really stunning work by an amazing ace artist. Please, show Beth some love. Donate if you can and signal boost the heck out of this project.

Thanks, everyone!

srhunt:

I’m gonna give this a try.

(As an artist I have the right to refuse any request I am not comfortable with)

Please reblog to get the word out

Thanks!

Hello all!

I have a special signal boost today from a pair of academic aces in London. They’re running a fascinating session about gaming for an upcoming conference. Here’s what they have to say:

‘My
friend and I really want to include papers with a queer perspective in
our conference session. I’m aro ace and I feel like the ace and aro
spectrums tend to get left out of queer theory a lot of the time. I’d
love to be able to boost our voices in this corner of academia so if you
have an idea for a paper please send it our way! All the details are
below’

‘My
friend and I are running a session at the 2019 TAG Archaeology
conference in London! The topic is the archaeology and history of gaming

Confused? Fair enough If you’re wondering how the archaeology of games (otherwise known as Archaeogaming!) works, we made a zine about it:

https://florencesmithnicholls.itch.io/archaeogaming-zine

We
welcome papers from ANYONE. If you have a good idea, send it our way!
If you’ve never done this before and need help or have questions let us
know You can find all the details here:

https://powerplaytag2019.home.blog/

If you can’t come to London but still want to get involved we will also have a Twitter conference running alongside our session ’

Hello all!

Once again, I’m low on interviewees. Since I don’t have the time to constantly post calls every single time I’m running low, I’m hoping to use this post as a kind of a reminder:

ASEXUAL ARTISTS IS OPEN FOR INTERVIEWS YEAR-ROUND!

I’m always looking for artists who are on the spectrum to interview. Any and all kinds of artists are welcome.

This is including but not limited to:

WRITERS: all genres and forms are welcome (novelists, short stories, poetry, flash fiction, etc). It doesn’t matter if you’re unpublished, just starting out, a student, a hobbyist, or established. Traditionally published, self-published, small press, etc. You’re all welcome and you all have something to offer.

VISUAL ARTISTS: Self explanatory, any kind of visual art you can imagine (photography, painting, sketching, drawing, sculpture, installation, etc.).

FANARTISTS: Another self-explanatory category. Cosplay, visual, fanfiction, etc. Whatever you do in your fandom (any and all fandoms welcome), you’re an artist.

FILMMAKERS: YouTubers, directors, cinematographers, anything that has to do with making films (short, features, documentaries, etc).

PERFORMANCE ARTS: actors, theater arts, singers, mimes, any sort of performers.

DANCERS: Any kind of dance style you can imagine is welcome here (ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, burlesque, belly-dancing, ballroom, etc.)

MUSICIANS: playing instruments, composing, singing, anything involving music

CULINARY: maybe your medium of choice is food. If so, you’re welcome here.

CRAFTS: any sort of craft you can think of (sewing, knitting, crocheting, candle making, jewelry making, etc.)

All levels of artists are welcome: whether you’re a student or a professional, just starting out or already established. If you create, you have something to offer and therefore I want to interview you 🙂

If you’re still unsure whether or not your art qualifies (there’s a 97.9% chance it will), and your question isn’t answered in the F.A.Q., please contact me at laurenjankowski27@gmail.com

If you want to be interviewed, please email me at the same address (laurenjankowski27@gmail.com)

This site continues because I get requests for interviews. If the interviews run out, this site will remain as a resource 🙂 Updates will continue as long as there are aces out there willing to be interviewed.

Thank you, everybody.

Hey everyone!

Still open for interviews. And I just want all you amazing, talented, wonderful artists who have already been interviewed: you are making such a difference. Giving an interview may seem like a small thing, perhaps even insignificant, but believe me when I say that so many aces have found comfort and inspiration in your words. I have received numerous messages about how much this blog means to people, especially to aces still coming to terms with their identity. That’s a truly wonderful thing 😃

So please, keep those interview requests coming!

Hey everyone!

Still need more interviews, but just a reminder: I don’t respond to interview requests via reblogs or comments. If you are interested in being featured on this blog, please email me: laurenjankowski27@gmail.com

All ages, races, religions, genders are welcome. If you’re on the ace spectrum and you create, I would love to interview you for this blog.

ALL aces are welcome on this blog! It doesn’t matter if you’re a hobbyist, a professional, a dabbler, a student, aspiring or experienced. Your art is important. Your voice is important.

So please, keep those interview requests coming 😀 <3

Still on a break from posting interviews, but just wanted to let aces know you can still request an interview. I’m collecting interviews and will post them in July.

Thanks everybody!

Hi all!

I know this is short notice, but I’ve been swamped with work. I still have interviews that need to be scheduled and posted, apologies for that.

One thing that has been occupying the majority of my time has been the Asexual Conference in Vancouver, which I’m co-curating an art show for. I’m hoping some followers of the site might be interested in attending (more information about the conference can be found at the following link: https://asexuality.wixsite.com/conference)

We’ve recently gotten a flyer for the art exhibit:

Aside from co-curating the art exhibit, I shall also be speaking on a panel about being an asexual author. I will probably speak on what it’s like to be an asexual fiction author who also happens to be from a non-traditional family. Copies of my books will be available for sale and I will be more than happy to personalize them for anyone who is interested.

Here’s the flyer for that event:

I’m hoping to get back in the swing of things soon, but traveling kind of eats up all my time. I’ll figure out a balancing act eventually.

Anyhow, I hope to see some followers of the site at the show!

Thanks everyone!

Help an asexual model and kids with cancer

So apparently making second in my group qualifies me for the wildcard round. If I make it to first in my wildcard group i get to move on to the semi finals. So far the groups are not ranked and voting starts in a little over an hour so it looks like everyone may start at zero. Just get your votes ready and donate if you can. This is it.

https://jetsetmag.com/model-search/2019/abby-2

Please don’t forget to vote. I’m trying to beat some trump ppl too. Not in my group but if I make it to the finals I will be running against them.
