Before we get to our regularly scheduled blog post, we just want to share a few resources with people who support the protestors and Black Lives Matter: Ways to Help, Educate Yourself, 43 Bail Funds You Can Absolutely Support Right Now, and Understanding and Dismantling Racism: A Booklist for White Readers (Remember, you can borrow these books from your library for free!). And for those who feel overwhelmed by everything and all the different calls to action, Erika found this quote especially helpful:
|Resistance is NOT a one lane highway. Maybe your lane is protesting, maybe your lane is organizing, maybe your lane is counseling, maybe your lane is art activism, maybe your lane is surviving the day.
Do NOT feel guilty for not occupying every lane. We need all of them.
And now, on to our post to go with today’s comic…
We’re super honored to have Naomi Rubin share this vulnerable and personal slice of life with us today! She hit it out of the park with this comic that’s both educational and personal, while standing on its own as just a beautiful piece of art. It is such an honor to showcase her work!
Go say hi to Naomi or even better yet, be awesome and drop her a dollar or two on Patreon! Although, Naomi’s requested that if your feeling generous, to consider putting your money elsewhere: Black Visions Collective & Bail Fund Sites.
The world is on fire and there are plenty of links above that deserve your money, but also if you are on the lookout for a book about sexual health, well, our Kickstarter is half-way through. Drawn to Sex Book 2: Our Bodies and Health. These pre-orders keep Oh Joy Sex Toy running and able to hire guest artists like Naomi ♥️
Again – stay safe out there. Look after yourselves and those around you <3
