Take a Penny, Leave a Penny!

Close to three years ago, karnythia hosted an LJ post where she asked people to leave a comment if they had something they wanted or needed, or if they had something they were willing to give or offer.

I got two things: yarn and friends.

This is how I met rosefox, who has since become one of the people in my life whom I value most.

So I've been thinking a lot lately about that and what a big impact it had on my life over the past three years. And it made me want to do it for other people.

Quoting karnythia's post from all those years ago:

What do you want?
What do you need?
What do you have?

Feel free to answer any or all of them. They do not need to be realistic things (I put world peace on mine last time) If you don't have a LiveJournal, or would prefer to answer anonymously, give us a way to contact you.

Feel free to share this on LJ, DW, and other social media if you like.

My aunt and uncle, yeeeeears ago, used to go to the park slope Jewish center. It's conservative, not reform, but it's brooklyn and I had a decent vibe from them. Definitely egalitarian. I remember a Purim shpiel 20+ years ago where my uncle played Ester, in my mom's clothes. I can't imagine either my aunt or uncle putting up with anything less than strict egalitarianism. Also, it's park slope, aka dyke slope. I would think it should be queer friendly.

As to coming out... I can't think of any resources offhand, mostly because I've been so immersed in queer culture for so long that the whole coming out thing is 15+ years ago for me... but honey, like who you want to like and fuck who you want to fuck and to hell with cat callers who don't know jack shit. If the label feels right, use it. If it doesn't, don't. Sexuality is fluid and changes over time. I knew a girl who was pretty straight most of the time but would be attracted to women consistently when she was ovulating and not the rest of the month. You're okay however and whoever and whenever you love. (Sorry, tripped and fell onto a soapbox there for a minute...)
