Making our own definitions

First, I want to thank everyone who considered doing a vlog for VQ’s first Vlog-a-thon.  Multiple people emailed to say they had planned to but ran out of time or were just nervous about getting online.  I get it.  I totally do. Maybe next time and if not, let’s enjoy […]

Truth time

Hmmm.  On day five of Week of Blogs, I may be running out of intro words.  Plus, I hate the thought that you spend any time reading my ramblings instead of checking out the blogs below.  On the other hand, perhaps if I don’t write a compelling enough intro, you […]

Poke around a little!

People have asked how I am ordering all the newly listed blogs that I announce.  The simple truth is: I don’t.  I have a huge list of new blogs and I open pages at random.  Once I have 6-8 pages open, I poke around, read a bit, sometimes comment, and […]

More Blogs. More Love. Bigger Village.

One of the reasons I love VillageQ is that I do believe that it takes a village to raise a child.  In part, I believe this because my two-year-old has more energy than anyone ever.  No. Really.  And in part, I believe this because while everyone takes their own path […]

Identity: A #VQvlogs Vlog-a-thon

Several months ago, we held our first vlog-off where we asked people to talk about similarities and differences.  In my humble opinion, the results were phenomenal.  In the end, five people submitted videos, 3 Contributors and 2 Readers.  I was thrilled that readers participated (Side note: If you like the videos […]

Linguistic Relativity and (Queer) Identity

Language, in fact, defines the way we think. Stop. Think about that sentence. The idea really blows my mind… although it seems so simple at first.   But it is really hard to grapple with an issue when you can’t name it.  In fact, often, naming something is seen as […]
