There's a special place in my heart for moths. I admire them so much. I think they are one of the cutest & sweetest animals on Earth. They are also nocturnal 💖 This moth has such a pretty face. Did you know moths have a very good sense of smell? they are also really good pollinators.. but we don't really see moths as pollinators but they are : ) Also did you know we shared an ancestor over half a billion years ago?

Flooded with emotions. Thinking of how grateful I am thinking of indigenous folk who may be grieving today and sending them so much love. Thinking of those I am grateful to know, both alive and whom are no longer here.. Thinking of my family.. and those I got to see on my mom's video chat they looked so joyful and happy.. Titi Rosa is the glue. thinking of my grandma. I love you Mama. see you soon. thinking of my cousin Arianna, so grateful for her survival and existence. she is so resilient. thinking of my sister. My dear sweet sister.. Of whom I love so much and miss terribly.. my brother thinking of him. Thinking of my baby.. my partner this beautiful being who came into my life and expanded my capacity in ways that allow me to grow more fully into myself in healthier ways. Thinking of my mommy and my dad.. So grateful for the ways they've committed to our family and loved me and positioned me on a morally grounded path. Grateful for my mom teaching me not to litter... And how divine the earth & all the animals are. Thinking of my life.. I've survived so much. I'm so so happy to be alive, thinking of Ryan Murphy & Steven Canals. The way they completely changed my life and life quality. Thinking of Jose X. The man who sent me out on an audition to Saturday church that would change my life forever & Damon for making that movie and letting me be part of it. Thank you for believing in me like I believed in me. Thinking of my Pose fam I miss you all.. Thinking my agents I love you so much- Benji, Josh, Christian Thinking of my friends. So happy to know a little more than a hand full of folks I can trust. . Thinking of Lisa, I'm so grateful to have a manager that loves me, and is protective of me & has stood by & supported me during turbulence & tension, & through joy and celebration.. I am in South Africa alone but accompanied by gratitude for those who love me & that I love too. So much love to all the trans and queer folk out there who don't really have a place to go. It hurts my heart to think about how isolating this day must be for so many folks. PLEASE reach out to your queer and trans friends and acquaintances and welcome them into your lovemost spaces..
#standwithGabU don't let this get swept under the rug or it will continue to happen. Gabrielle Union was fired from @nbc x @AGT for holding Jay Leno Accountable to a racist Joke.. One incident upon countless that have made the environment toxic to work at. While His joke was edited out, Gabrielle was punished for pointing out it's harm. I am so proud of Gabrielle union for refusing to be bought out of her dignity & integrity. This is a culture in entertainment & Hollywood that noone wants to talk about.. but when you allow yourself to be bought out of integrity you give away so much power for harm to be caused to others in many different ways. Everyone will make mistakes everyone will work with and love people who have made mistakes no matter what, but when you refuse to take accountability, when you punish people for holding you accountable, when you choose not to work with people out of fear of being held accountable for your mistakes you fail in safety, solidarity, professionalism & you fail as a cultural influence In world of sustained gender & sexual violence, racism & sexism. Media & entertainment must allow itself to be accountable to the work environments they create & the influence they have on society. @nbc @Agt Punishing people for holding you accountable to harm & toxicity is abusive & toxic as hell!!! I will not be supporting @NBC x @AGT Simon or Jay until the networks & these particular men take accountability for the the harm caused to @gabunion & anyone else having to endure the roxic environment they helped to create and have neglected to make safe and healthy with their own power. The Micro & Macro Aggressive Anti blackness & sexism of The TV show, it's production and working environment needs to be addressed and accounted for immediately. This is disgusting and I'm deeply disappointed in the network. Gabrielle Union is a black woman and a mother to a Queer/Trans Child. It is important that networks lean into her standards for safe and healthy working environment and programming because of her awareness & experience as opposed to punishing her for it. I stand with Gabrielle Union.

Don't be intimidated lil baby😵 Be inspired.
Trigger warning. . Thinking of Akiirah, my foster care roommate & foster sibling. I was updated that Akiirah, went into the tracks to retrieve something and didn't make it out on time.. Even though the information doesn't piece together in my head quite right this is all I have. There's something about the departure from our families and not having family infrastructure that influences trans & queer people's life longevity directly, more often than not.. I believe every human being's chances of survival are greatly reduced without the support and solidarity of our families- especially queer & trans people. The way Chosen family has helped us to survive is proof of that- but often times chosen family isn't enough. It's rare to find people we didn't grow with from infantry sincerely care about the principles we have, our behavior & interpersonal relationships, safety, discipline health.. It's a labor many people will not take on, not even our foster parents, not even group home staff... I don't blame them, being a parent or a sibling is a 24/7 job.. and it doesn't end because something broke or someone went to jail or someone had a fight. Akiirah is the second foster sibling we lost, during this time I'm keeping Jay in my thoughts as well. There are many reasons kids end up in fostercare.. when they are trans and queer it is often because of of unacceptance, but the reasons our parents simply aren't equipped to have us in their care are economical, psychological, social.. etc. But I just can't help but imagine what our lives would be like if we had the presence of our families. Right now the conversation is how will get her funeral paid for.. This shouldn't be happening. Peace be upon you Akiirah.
Trigger Warning... . . An incredibly unconscionable time. Akiirah Allen was always so grounded. she always seemed to have this peace and grounding.. We used to smoke our herbals together.. She checked on me every now and then. I had her back whenever I could.. we lived together for while in foster care but We grew apart- Never keeping in touch since I left the foster care agency. Akiirah was kind, and mad gentle gave good advice, and generally just wise.. I can't remember ever fighting with her and I faught a lot in foster care. She was just always doing her own thing, but we supported each other wherever we could, from a light up to a couple dollars, to standing up to staff when they got messy with us. Last I heard she was proud of me.. During the times I thought of her I wish so bad I just looked for her and reached out. Akiirah's earthly life was lost at a NYC mta subway station two days ago where the train collided with her. at this time we don't know if she was pushed or she jumped.... We don't believe she would have killed herself- but it's not my place to speculate because I haven't been around.. she may be the 23 known trans woman to have been killed this year.. This is a shocking, and heart wrenching time. I hope this is a bad joke or a nightmare that will end soon... My thoughts are with our foster care family community and her loved ones.. I don't know what else to say. I just wish this could stop. This can't keep happening. It has to stop. To Sco fam.. I'm not in NY at this time but please let me know how I can be supportive...... Thank you Justice @keeping_up_with_unique for reaching out to me & providing me updates on Akiirah..
I don't even think I was boxing right.. But this song was so popping when I was working out.. 😭 Mary thank you for giving me so much life while I was boxing... Day 2
