!! OMG, help support a documentary about Canadian transgender activist and political organizer Susan Gapka !!


2015 has been a huge year for the trans rights movement, but there is still much to be done and still so far to go.

Someone who has done much for this cause is Toronto based transgender activist and political organizer Susan Gapka, and a nds feature-length documentary detailing the life of her is in the works. You can support the film HERE at the official Kickstarter page, but first, a bit about the film:

Susan Gapka is a trans activist and political organizer who is no stranger to adversity. Growing up in a small town in Ontario was not an easy place for a child struggling with their identity. After high school, Susan left her tumultuous childhood home. The chaos of Toronto brought with it a new set of challenges and Susan ended up living on the streets struggling with addiction. For ten years Susan fought to find stable housing and to kick her demons. With the help of housing organizations she found a permanent home where she was finally able to become the woman she had wanted to be for years.

This film tells Susan’s story. It connects her past to who she is today, while focusing on the real changes she has been able to make for the transgender community. Most importantly this film follows Susan as she embarks on one of her greatest challenges, facing the hometown she would rather have forgotten.

!! OMG, the owls are not what they seem… they’re paper, beeeotch! !!

Someone made the entire opening of Twin Peaks out of moving construction paper! YAAASSS. I mean, if anything still deserves a goddamn YAAAASSSSS these days — it’s that someone did this!

Oh and after you check that out, then wander over to this Kickstarter to support a doc about a guy who grew up in the town that Twin Peaks was shot in, became obsessed with Laura Palmer, tried living her life (excuse her single white femaleness!) and went down a rocky road as a result! Fund that shit!

Those willing to spend a bit more can get a shoutout in the album booklet, a video tutorial of TLC dance moves, signed vinyl or a personal voicemail message.

!! OMG, donate to a VERY important cause: Man starts Nickelback Kickstarter campaign to keep band out of playing London !!

Craig Mandell is out there fighting for the greater good of planet Earth (or at least the people of London) and has promised to send an email to Nickelback’s management for every donation received towards his Kickstarter campaign. $1 gets you one email to Nickelback while $5 gets you a “slightly more forceful email” demanding that they not play London, England.

For $50 your donation “will result in an email to Nickleback with an attached mp3 of Nickelback’s music. This way, the band will hear their own music, and likely retire immediately, thereby ensuring the success of our campaign.”
“With your help, we can ensure that the band do not schedule any gigs here, do not attempt to come here – nor even phone here,” he has written.
“Just imagine, thousands – perhaps tens of thousands of music lovers – all not witnessing an exclusive concert by Nickelback in London. It will be glorious. Legendary.”
Mr. Mandell gave his reasons for a Nickelback Kickstarter campaign page in an FAQ section, saying that the band create “unlistenable music”.

The campaign insists that “this campaign is not about personal profit. All proceeds will go to charity. Or perhaps therapy for those who’ve been affected by the band.” Mr. Mandell is my new hero. DONATE TODAY!
