Businesses That Offer at Least One Transgender-Inclusive Health Care Coverage Plan
So I know the HRC is pretty damn shitty to us trans folk. But this is still the best comprehensive thing I have seen with employers that offer trans* inclusive benefits. 
I set a click through link to a high resolution.
A lot of these are worth a Google to find out what they really are. Like Darden Restaurants, that’s Olive Garden and Red Lobster. 
If you can get a full-time job at one of these places, they will (most likely) offer GRS/SRS in the insurance plan. If you take a look here, you can see what companies have what restrictions about it. Eg, age, time on hormones, ‘real life experience’, all that bs.
Hopefully this will help some of you get jobs at places that will actually do you some good.
For the rest of the Corporate Equality Index, look here.
Please reblog this at the least, even if you don’t care, your friends or fellow trans people might.

To the anon mentioning concerns that their parents will pull support when they come out: Obviously we all hope that won’t happen, but if you do come here, Moho has some great resources to help students in this type of situation. The Jolene Fund is a loan fund that helps students who’ve lost financial support from their parents, http://www.mhlp.org/page-583592? it’s administered by the Dean, but it was put together by Lyon’s Pride, the LGBTQ alum organization and True Colors, one of the LGBTQ student orgs, runs a big fund-raiser for it every year (or at least, they did when I was there).

Yes, True Colors still fund raises for the Jolene Fund through Drag Ball each year. -M.

A Multi-Function Clip That Hides a Toolbox In Your Hair

Um yes!

I still want to bulk buy these and adonize  batch pink.

And it would still get stuck in my hair…

now THIS is what I’m fucking talking about
EDIT: IT FUNCTIONS AS A FUCKING ORANGE PEELER, AND EVEN A LAMP IF YOU HAVE A STRING AND SOME OIL. SERIOUSLY???

JUST IN CASE YOU APPARENTLY NEED AN EMERGENCY ONE FOR RELIGIOUS SERVICES?

POC ZINE PROJECT REVIEWS BROS FALL BACK
By Suzy X, POCZP touring member
Hi zinesters! Last month I had the pleasure of reading at Ladyfest Philly, where I read/performed from my middle school diaries. I was in great company, and many laughs (and tears) were shared.
But being the only author of color at the reading left me a little confused; there are actually plenty of POC doing radical, D.I.Y work in Philadelphia alone, and not enough of them were at this event! Hopefully next year’s zine reading can be a better reflection of that.So on that note, a new zine that I’m absolutely enamored with is BROS FALL BACK, a zine recently written by some QPOC based in Philly known as “The Secret Society of Femmes.”
Rather than resorting to the classic declaration of “girls to the front!” BROS FALL BACK takes a more intersectional approach to combating hetero-patriarchy in D.I.Y. and punk spaces. This shift in focus allows more room for those who are not “girls” nor “bros,” but are still fair game under white male supremacy.
The zine also delves into the racist and capitalist dynamics within punk culture, illustrating the slippery slope that starts with a new DIY space and ends with gentrification.
