yellow/gold is my favorite thing
Me today at SpringFestNY 13’. ♥
A fearless princess, destined to inherit rule of the Five Kingdoms.
A gifted warrior and a tech savvy teen, to her, formalities have always been in the way of getting things done. Still she has a bit more trouble relating to common people than she’d like to admit, but she hopes to soon be able to see her nation first hand instead of from behind the palace walls.
She’s equipped with an ancient familial magic staff and a multipurpose tool strapped to her wrist that has gotten her in and out of a lot of trouble.
Responsible and brave, she hopes to one day be a great queen, and command the same presence as her mother..
Today, I realized the need to make Spider Stories a reality is stronger, especially after this one Kickstarter story about a stereotypical comic started popping up. I’d rather see positive storytelling rather than more tales of people ignorant of a culture willing to mock it for profit.
Make the Spider Stories animated film a reality. The brothers Agbaje need your support in these last two weeks.

Anderson: On the red carpet for the Oscars last year you changed your look… kind of and it seemed to flip people out. People were writing about this, blogging about this. And Gabby at the Olympics recently, when she did really well I saw people commenting about her hair and stuff. I just thought it really odd that people notice this so much. Do you find it strange that people comment on how you appear so much?

“This is an experiment in sharing a personal experience through game mechanics. It helps communicate daily occurances that happen in my life as a mixed transgender woman. It also explores the difficulty in expressing these feelings in words. As well, it stands as a commentary of how we currently use game design for broad strokes of universal experiences instead of the hyper-personal, and often exclude minority voices.”
“I have gotten so many letters from girls and boys who were so excited and proud to see a Black woman performing one of their favorite characters, “Elphaba”, in the musical Wicked. I was in Wicked for nearly 2 and a half years and I learned so much during that time.. .it wasn’t always easy and I was so busy in my own experience of working at the Gershwin theatre that I didn’t truly imagine so many kids would be inspired.
“Oh, but the letters flew in, the artwork the fan sites, all the love that said “We’re so proud of you!” and “We can do it too!” I found out over the years that these things have meant alot to young people of color. ”
