I HAVE 24HRS TO PAY MY OVERDUE RENT!!!
**URGENT: PLEASE READ/SIGNAL BOOST**
Thursday, September 29th: Hi everyone, I’m Gemma, a bi, mentally ill, and disabled woman, who is in desperate need of help, as I recently received a letter stating that my rent is in arrears, and needs to be paid by Friday 30th!!
Since my last post, things have gone from bad, to worse, as I recently received a letter from my council, telling me that I am £168.46 in debt with my rent. And as many of you are already aware from my previous posts, I have been struggling financially for the past few years due to covid-19, and my welfare benefit (Universal Credit) being under review, which is due to my worsening mental/physical health and the UK’s controversial changes to how benefits are assessed and assigned. And at the moment, I'm currently struggling to get by, as my application for Disability (PIP) was declined, despite recently being diagnosed with PCOS, MDD & CFS.
And due to awaiting DWP assessments, my debt from overdue bills, accounts and creditors, is piling up to over +£1k, and this has made it incredibly difficult for me to get by on a day-to-day basis, and I've been getting away with just paying the bare minimum to keep things on (gas/electricity/internet) but I'm now in serious trouble and need urgent help to survive!!
I know this is a difficult time for everyone, and I'm completely heartbroken to be asking for help again, but I still desperately need some as I'm not due to receive my welfare until the 30th, which will be taken by my overdue debt leaving me with nothing to pay my rent. To make matters worse, my utilities are also on emergency credit, (my electricity meter is £90 p/m) so my goal at the moment is £250, but anything helps right now!!
If anyone could spare any amount to help me, even if it’s just £1/$1/€1, it would literally save my life, and sharing defiantly helps just as much. Thank you so much for all your help!! ❤

"There is a large gap between bisexual visibility and bisexual community. Since I don’t think scientists are on the brink of discovering the key to human teleportation, we’re going to have to create and attend bi spaces ourselves in order to feel less alone. We, the bi people of the world, are going to have to build bi communities."
From the Spring 1997 issue of bisexual magazine "Anything That Moves" (plain text under the cut)
Not A Traitor, Not Weird, Just Happy
Greetings! Just when I was afraid that there was no intelligent life out there, I find Anything That Moves. What luck!
I adored "Bi Femme" by Leah Lilith Albrecht-Samarasinha; I think she and I are sisters under the skin! I am currently embroiled in a passionate relationship with a glorious drag queen, and I was really starting to feel as if I were the only bi-babe who got all sweaty over a guy in a frock.
I, too, have been called a traitor by my gay friends, and just plain weird by my straight friends, but how can you label "happy"? I steal his clothes, he steals mine... and we wear the same size skirt. What more is there?
Thanks again. I shall return regularly.

I can’t believe people seriously think pan is biphobic… and they never have any actual evidence backing up these claims… plenty of bi people still exist- there’s no “bisexual erasure”. And why are panphobes using pan tags??
And ya ever notice how a great deal of panphobic people aren’t even bi-

I dont really care if you use the term bisexual or pansexual, but what i DO care about is that you understand that bisexuality at NO stage in history was EVER trans-exclusionary. Bisexuality has always included trans folks, and non-binary folks, and the entire spectrum of gender between male and female, as well as Definitively Gender and agender. It has ALWAYS meant "attraction to more than one gender." It has NEVER meant "attraction to cis men and women only."
So, pan, bi, use whichever label you will. But do NOT buy into the recent-years innacurate concept that bisexuality is attraction to cis men and women only, because thats literally never been the case.
“Bisexual women and their boring boyfriends” I know this is hard for y’all to hear, but I actually don’t give a fuck if you think my boyfriend is boring; “they want us to roll out the red carpet for their ugly boyfriends” I actually don’t give a fuck what you think about my relationships and who I date; I don’t know how to explain to y’all that NOTHING WE DO IS FOR YOU!!! Our relationships aren’t not for you, we dont do ANYTHING for you! We’re not gnc for you (for those of you saying it’ll make you like us more), our relationships aren’t for you (you can have your hurt feelings about our ugly/boring boyfriends or us being poly, I do not fucking care), and we are certainly not bi for you or your attention. Nothing bi people do is for or about you, and you can cry to your Twitter followers about whatever it is we’re doing that you don’t like, because I do not care.
