Hi fierce friendlies,
I’m the new kid here at the Femme’s Guide, so I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself before diving into my first post. I very much appreciate the precision and premeditation of bios, so I’ll drop mine in here as a start:
Luna Allison is a relentlessly mouthy queer poly femmeinist living in the urban wilds of Canadia with her butch and femme cats. She splits her time between queer journalism, spoken word, yummy D/s and thinking about femme. Luna enjoys glitter, eloquence, flirty summer dresses, fierce femmeinism, fun shoe/bag combinations, pants-free dance parties, inventive cooking, overwhelmingly large houseplants, shy bois, nightswimming and your bare ass. www.lunaallison.com.
I first connected with the lovelies at the Femme’s Guide after publishing this article on femme with Xtra Toronto, which was then cross-posted here.
I’m thrilled to bits to be writing for TFG, and I look forward to much awesomeness and fun. Keep your eye on this space for an upcoming series of femme interviews by yours truly... (so excited to get started on these!) But in the meantime, here’s a little femme visibility action prompt for the month of November.
Femme Visibility Challenge #1:
This month, choose to get into the habit of assuming every feminine, woman-identified person you encounter is queer. i.e.: Look at someone who fits the bill and say to yourself, "Total queer." Putting effort into this simple mental shift can have massive implications in your day-to-day life, so it’s enough to just train your brain on this exercise and see what happens for you. But! If you’re feeling bold, move on up to Level #2: Try flirting heavily with a feminine, woman-identified person that you encounter and admire. If she refuses your attentions on the basis of being straight, you might try a line like, “Oh, wow…it’s just that you look so queer. Your ___________ and your ___________ and the way you walk and everything. My mistake.”
Pretty please, post the results? I’d love to hear all about your adventures!
