A busy hoe is a happy hoe
What we've been up to
Sister Fagatha Hardness and Sister Mothra Stewart ran the "Wheel of Trans Trivia" at the Southern Illinois Transgender Resource Fair on Friday, welcoming new members to the community and students back to school. Now, the SOIL Sisters were not responsible for coming up with those questions; they just spun the wheel, looked pretty, and handed out prizes (sticky condom flags!). Those questions were hard, y'all!!! But they had fun, giving clues and changing the rules as needed to keep things upbeat and educational. You know, a trivia game at a trans resource fair should be fluid, right?
(Oh, wait! We are reminded that the prizes were a choice of trans-themed stickers, mini trans flags, or condoms. Silly us! That's not to say sticky condom flags weren't available as the event wore on, though.)
The SI Trans Resource Fair was hosted by Rainbow Café and included most LGBTQ organizations in the area as well as organizations sponsoring food accessibility, community health, physical therapy, housing, etc. Local health clinics providing both reproductive services and gender-affirming care were also prominently present. Any organization acting truly with pride for the Southern Illinois transgender and LGBTQIA+ community was present and having a good time. The music was awesome, the food was great, and the crowds were large--both in the Rainbow Café facilities and across the street in the Carbondale Town Square Pavilion.
Now who wants a sticky condom flag, cuz you know a dirty hoe has extras! Yeet!
