Find everything you need for the submission process here: http://writebloody.com/submissions/ Thank you for writing!!

Without loving-kindness for ourselves it is difficult, if not impossible, to genuinely feel it for others.

Kansas City! WBC Counter Protest!

Hey Everyone, Tonight, along with a number of other artists, I will be performing at the Midwest Bisexual Lesbian Gay Transgender Ally College Conference (MBLGTACC). Unfortunately, the Westboro Baptist Church will be protesting.

 So in order to turn a negative situation positive: For every person that shows up to counter protest today (4:15-5pm), The Ally Coalition will be making a donating to LIKEME Lighthouse, a Kansas City LGBT community center.
 In addition, a donation will be made for every WBC member that shows up, so they can also support such a worthy cause ;)

 We ask that you protest the hate, but do not engage those who hate at this event. More details go here: http://allycoalition.tumblr.com/ Thank you!
