Twitter reacts to the Michael Dunn sentence today. Dunn was sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.
my hair is a constant change in my life.
It’s one of the few things I have control over.
Its color changes with the seasons because I can never
stay the same for too long.
It records my life, taking down daily experiences as its growth
mimics my personal blossoming.
It’s an extension of my creativity, stemming from the very root
of where my ideas and inspiration come from.
my hair is my own and a part of who I am.
This past week, I was happy to be a part of “QTPOC Perceptions,” which is a four-part series of events hosted jointly by the Multicultural Community Center (MCC) and the Gender Equity Resource Center (GenEq). The particular theme for this event was centered around hair—how queer/trans* people of color use hair as a form of gender expression, resistance, and etc.
This theme really resonated with me since I’ve been growing out my hair for more than a year and a half now. I’ve dyed it, cut it, put it in a ponytail, and a bunch of other things. My long hair coincides with my association of long hair and femininity, allowing me to express my identity in my own way. And after the event, it has really made me appreciative of spaces like the MCC and GenEq to be able to express myself openly.
I can’t wait for the other three parts to come out. I met and got to listen the perspectives of a lot of great people about how they navigate spaces with their hair.
