a multiplicity project
IN THIS HOUSE, WE BELIEVE: IF THE YOUNG ARE NOT INITIATED INTO THE TRIBE THEY WILL BURN DOWN THE VILLAGE JUST TO FEEL ITS WARMTH. BLACK LIVES MATTER, NO HUMAN IS ILLEGAL, WATER IS LIFE ~ MNI WICONI, LOVE IS LOVE, DIFFERENT ISN'T DANGEROUS & IN WALKING IN OTHER'S SHOES, KINDNESS IS EVERYTHING.
I am an Organizer at heart. This is a place for sharing resources, co-conspiring, networking, collaboration, educating & lifting each other up. Carrying the thread of it's origins, the transparency of my own stories- the Queerest Quest (in every sense of the word); a Hero's Journey template for navigating life's challenges. My vocations & how I show up in the world are intrinsically tied together.
Originally created as a vehicle to chart my own journey- consisting of tales & visuals, through personal narratives of discovery. Queer Odyssey tells the story of following a path with heart and finding trust in living authentically.
A Labor of Love to you. If you feel drawn to Rites of Passage as a road-map to navigating change, that something here resonates with you or you are simply curious, come engage with me and Queer Odyssey. See you OUT there.
This page is is open source and evolving. Let's keep defining and redefining...
introducing and offering ROP to Organizations already working in the field with our dynamic community
supporting existing ROP organizations in becoming accessible to Trans & Non-Binary youth, is the vision
Collaborating with Organizations & Individuals committed to educating about and supporting resilience in the intersectionality of our collective
Committed to filling the need for
creating Trans & Non-Binary specific Rites of Passage (ROP)
This may look like, added programming in your organization, consulting, guest speaking, project caretaker +++.
I strongly desire to support youth, again, and specifically youth populations that include: Transgender, LGBTQ2+, POC, First Nations and those within the Foster or homeless shelters. Preferring to coordinate, collaborate and be led by Youth leaders feels really important in these times.
