Pizza for dinner! And whatever I know its small — but I cannot wait.
Queer as in F*ck You
Cherelle Griner Encourages People to Write Brittney Griner Letters: “Be Her Strength” I will be doing this immediately. Here’s where you can, too. I feel like so many of the news updates that we get about Brittney Griner can feel overwhelming and action-less, but this is something tangible. We know — because it’s been reported multiple times now — that BG feels alone, that she worries about having been forgotten in Russia. She doesn’t have to. You can send her a quick note, a letter, some love. It will make a difference, that I promise you. (And while you have out your stamps, you can send some quick notes to our incarcerated queer fam in the United States who could also use the love and reminders that they aren’t alone. It also sends a reminder to the guards in charge in those prisons that there’s people outside watching, which provides safety. So do that, too!)
And here’s some more Brittney Griner Updates:
- US Embassy Officials Visit Detained Basketball Star Brittney Griner in Russia. “State Department spokesperson Ned Price said in a tweet Thursday that embassy officials ‘saw firsthand her tenacity and perseverance despite her present circumstances.'”
- If you’ve been following BG’s case, you know that former ambassador to the UN Bill Richardson has been a reoccurring player over the last few months, let’s talk about that: Can Bill Richardson Free Brittney Griner and Paul Whelan?
I assume it goes without saying, but in this house we listen to trans kids when they tell us who they are, and we protect and give love to Zaya Wade.
Dwyane Wade Responds To Ex-Wife’s Objection To Zaya’s Name And Gender Change, a hearing for the case is set for December 12.
