Pep-Talk Map: Be Strong, Things Get Better

Imagine a Map as a Hug…

it gets better map

Its a rainy day in Philadelphia. I wanna dedicate this post to my friend kiran who is going through a rough patch right now. “It might be stormy now, but it can’t rain forever”.

I know it has a slight “its gets better” ring to it, and maybe it could be re-purposed for folks who need a glowing light saber in their quest for queer encouragement/ esteem, but the Be Strong map is coming from a much more generalizable place…

As for the ubiquitous & viral It Gets Better campaign, I think Jasbir Puar added the bit I’ve felt lacking in the national conversation giving voice to the silencing power of the tsunami of white, owning class, male homo-normative narratives in circulation. So rather than re-post, I’ll just link to it, and leave you with your cartographic hug of the day…

Be Strong Now,
Sunshine Superboy
