the women’s road race world championships, where women from all over the world competed in Richmond, Virgina on Sept 26, 2015 to be the world champion cyclist! I recorded as they crested the top of Libby Hill in slow motion at about mile 50 or 60 or so because #womenscyclingrocks
Why this is important… let me tell you a story. This is a true story. Here’s the scene:
After an amazing weekend of bike racing of people from all over the world, I catch a taxi to head to the airport for my flight home to NYC. The driver and I, a wonderful and sweet person from Africa, we’re talking about how amazing it is that all these people come together to race.
He was rooting for USA, Africa, and Norway (they had bunch of Norwegian friends and they showed me pictures of a kid all dressed up as a Viking). I was rooting for Canada and US and we also rooted for Austria and Japan!
They said, isn’t it wonderful?!?
I said, it’s awesome!
Just then we pulled up behind a pickup truck loaded with anti-immigrant bumper stickers. The driver said, wow, so many bumper stickers. They sounded a little dejected.
I said, you know? Fuck that guy! We are all immigrants, and all of us came out of Africa!!!
We did! They said and then we laughed and laughed and we made our way to the airport.

Well, on our second try (I messed up the first one), Marilyn of Genderqueer Identitiesgenderqueerid.com and I skype it up!! We talk tumblr woes, Lila Perry and unisex bathrooms, and fruitless epic internet battles!
OH! and in the intro, I totally botched the website address for Genderqueer Identities. It’sgenderqueerid.com - not the multitude of things I said in the intro. Ugh. You’d think this would get easier! lol

This time, we met up with Remy and their fiance at Think Coffee on Bleeker St. We talk politics, comicon, binders, and our stories.
