Hey guys! So it’s been a little over a year since I published “Swelter,” my explicit f/f short story featuring a girl hooking up with her older brother’s best friend at said brother’s wedding. To celebrate, “Swelter” will be free on Amazon for four days, 8 November 2017 - 11 November 2017

Please download it, and if you’re feeling kind, leave an honest review on the page! (It’s the nicest thing you can do for a self-published author; reviews have a huge impact on Amazon algorithms.)

SWELTER - by Jules Kelley

A wide, wicked grin below reflective aviators sent a welcome chill like melted ice down her spine, and she faltered, stumbling to a stop right in front of a disgruntled businessman, who stepped around her sharply.

“Maya?”

Her older brother’s best friend stood leaning against a planter, looking as cool as ever, just like she wasn’t wearing a leather jacket, jeans, and leather boots. There wasn’t even a hint of dampness in her casually wind-blown black hair, her gorgeous brown skin smooth and dry. Goddamn it, Grace, close your mouth and stop staring.

“What are you doing here?”

Maya pushed her sunglasses up on top of her head and straightened, gesturing for Grace to give her the carry-on bag. “I’m here to pick you up, princess. Should I have brought a sign with your name on it?”

BREAKING: Andrea Jenkins elected to Minneapolis City Council, making her the first trans woman of color elected to U.S. office

gaywrites:

Another transgender woman made history in today’s election! 

Andrea Jenkins was elected to the Minneapolis City Council. She’s the first trans person elected to a major city’s governing body and the first trans woman of color elected to office in the United States. 

Jenkins won in the city’s Eighth Ward, where she had been a policy aide to departing Council Vice President Elizabeth Glidden. The Minneapolis Star Tribune had endorsed her, saying she was highly qualified and well prepared for the office. She bested three other candidates. Jenkins is a Democrat; the race is officially nonpartisan, but candidates can identify with a party label. She had the endorsement of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, as the Democratic Party is known in Minnesota, and of Victory Fund.

As an aide to Glidden and previous Eighth Ward council member Robert Lilligren, Jenkins worked to revitalize the neighborhood with small businesses and arts venues, and helped organize a Trans* Equity Summit. She emphasized, however, that revitalization must not come at the expense of poor people.

During the campaign, she said her priorities include developing affordable housing, raising the minimum wage, addressing youth violence as a matter of public health, and supporting minority artists. She is a historian with the Transgender Oral History Project at the University of Minnesota as well as a poet, prose author, and performance artist who has received numerous grants for her work.

The other transgender woman who won in this election is Danica Roem in Virginia. Change is coming, y’all, and this is what it looks like. Congrats, ladies.

First openly transgender state legislator elected in Virginia

wats-good-gabby:

Not only did Danica run against a proud and openly anti-LGBTQ politician but she snatched his seat!! 

Robert Marshall, who she ousted, held that seat for 26 years and bragged that he was “Virginia’s chief homophobe” and was determined to pass a bathroom bill into law. Byeeeeee!

Also honestly the “yummy candy coating” to “kinda subpar chocolate filling” ratio is much better.

Transgender Candidate Danica Roem Wins Historic Election to the Virginia State Legislature

likebrightness:

She soundly defeated 25-year incumbent Bob Marshall, a social conservative who frequently tried to use her gender identity against her throughout the campaign, even misgendering her at times. Her win in the 13th district, in northern Virginia, is a significant rebuke to the Trump administration’s hostility toward the transgender community. When she is sworn in, in January, she’ll become the first transgender person elected and seated to a state legislature.

Danica Roem is Va.’s first openly transgender elected official, unseating conservative in State House race
