Are you a tumblr?

Check out these Tumblr pages recommended to us by youth activist Calen Valencia of Tulare Union High School’s Gay Straight Alliance and Central Valley GSA Network Board Member! Thanks Calen for showing us these pages:

Agender Earthworm – Agender Earthworm is a blog to help non-binary gendered youth and is used as a support system by being kind to people. The purpose of Agender Earthworm is to fight the oppression forced upon non-binary gendered people with humor/expression of feelings.

Genderqueer (beyond the binaries) - This blog was created to post images of gender-bending, trans and queer people of all sorts, meant to empower and celebrate the beauty within all gender expressions. Also posted are quotes and text that reflect different views on gender and links of interest. We do try to avoid placing labels on people if they don’t use them themselves; for instance, we only tag a picture as “lesbian” or “trans woman” if we know how that person identifies.

Hell Yeah, Agender! - The purpose of this Tumblr is to educate people about what being agender means, what agender people are like, to share news stories and other relevant information that relate to agender people, and to also create a hub of sorts where agender people can go and share their stories, along with other information that they’d like other agender people to have.

Laura’s Playground - Laura’s Playground is a free support site for MTF, FTM Transsexual , Transgendered, Crossdressers, Intersex, Androgynous and their Significant Others and Friends. There are 23 message forums for support without combat for all Trans-folk and their families.

Practical Androgyny - The tumblog sibling of PracticalAndrogyny.com a site devoted to the practicalities of ambiguous gender presentation within a binary gendered society.

The Levamentum Project - The Levamentum Project is run by Alex, a 17 year old trans male from San Diego, California. Alex is the President of his Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) club and uses The Levanmentum Tumblr to help with his personal transition. This Tumblr page is dedicated to help other transgender youth by selling products.
