Hello world! It’s @tim_lytc checking in for the morning. I’m a NEW TALENT Fellow on the programme. I’m a Queer dance creative working across theatre, film and creative tech. My work is centred on advocating for gender, health, race and Queer issues.
My #digitalplacemaking research looks at the potentials of combining #Dance & Movement with #CreativeTechnology to create safer spaces for #Queer folks. Check out my page for a little taste of what I've done✨
At the beginning, I was inspired by past work I had done with @LiminaImmersive @SplashAndRipple @lisamaythomas And their approach to bodies and technology - The conscious effort to create comfortable, inclusive spaces, where audiences could escape and connect at the same time.

Hi! Happy #BiVisibilityDay! Every year for the last 5 years I have said a version of the same thing. This year is no exception. Let's talk bisexuality! (short thread👇)
1) I am #bisexual. To me, this means I can be attracted to people who *are not* of my gender identity, as well as being attracted to people who *are* of my gender identity
2) it does not mean I erase non binary gender identities. The '2' implied by my use of 'bi' is 'like me' & 'not like me'

Die #NordStream2 Debatte zeigt exemplarisch, welche Politiker:innen populistisch mediengerecht reagieren, Punkte beim Wahlvolk sammeln wollen. Die Situation ist komplizierter, als es auf den ersten Blick erscheint. Ein Einstampfen des Projektes kurz vor Vollendung: Teuer, falsch.
Es fehlen aktuell rund 100km. Internationale Partner, auch Franzosen, sind stark finanziell beteiligt. Hohe Entschädigungsleistungen sind bei Einstellung zu erwarten. Selbstverständlich geht dies zu Lasten der Steuerzahler:innen.
Die Bundesregierungen der vergangenen Jahrzehnte achten schon seit längerer Zeit auf einen Mix von Energie-Importeuren, um eine zu grosse Abhängigkeit zu vermeiden. Und Russland, ja, auch Putin, ist mit Energie für Deutschland ein zuverlässiger Partner.

"I call the narrator Thomas b/c that’s how he refers to himself in the poem. He says the world makes him 'a strange countenance.' " @MADisability Leah Parker on "My Compleinte" by Thomas Hoccleve (1368-1426) #PoetryTwitter acting like #nondis make best #sick poems #YeahRight
1500 years before #RosemarieGarlandThomson , we #disabled were using the word: unhӕlu, pronounced oooon-HAL-loooo. #DisabilityStudies Lecture: "5 Brief Histories" by Leah Pope Parker. #GoodToKnow #Name #Namer #Metonym
Come for Saint Margaret, who is swallowed by a dragon and bursts out of its belly, and stay for "the interrupted heartbeat in the meter" of Hoccleve's work; "a somatic symptom of emotional distress." #CripLit yes, this is a subtweet of the #JerichoBrown thread/poems for doc appt

"If you're putting something — a part of your body or a toy — into a partner, you're a top." @MattBaume for @them. #sexualhealth #sexeducation…
BTW, although it's not explicitly mentioned. That goes for #pegging, too.…
What is pegging? Glad you asked! Pegging is when "a vagina-owning partner wears a harness, pops on a strap-on dildo ... gives their penis-having partner a lil' butt action." @paisleyrgilmour for @CosmopolitanUK. #queer #sexualhealth #SexEd…

Poet, actor, performing artist, force-to-be-reckoned with, @staceyannchin joins me on the latest episode of @SexOutLoudRadio, and we talk about her breathtaking and brilliant poetry collection Crossfire: A Litany For Survival (published by @haymarketbooks). Image
She talks about #BlackLivesMatter, what it means for women to reclaim their bodies after sexual violation, racism, capitalism, poverty & inequity. Later, we both get very personal as we go deep into queer sex, love & relationships.
Plus, @Stacyannchin reads three of her poems from the book. This is one of my absolute favorite interviews! Listen now at @libsyn @ApplePodcasts @GooglePlay @Stitcher @Spotify, #queer #queerart #queerlove link:…

🌈L’Orgull #LGTBI reivindica la diversitat de les identitats de gènere i orientacions sexuals, qüestionant la divisió en dos gèneres: home i dona. Evitar traslladar al passat presumpcions de gènere i sexe del present és, precisament, un dels objectius de l'#ArqueologiaQueer.
🔎 Aquest corrent, molt lligat a l’arqueologia #feminista, incideix en el gènere i en el sexe com a construccions culturals que han variat al llarg de la història.
Així doncs, a l’hora d’estudiar les societats del passat no podem associar objectes, representacions i rols de manera unívoca als homes o a les dones; encara més, hem de pensar que pogueren existir gèneres diferents als actuals, com demostra l’#antropologia.

THREAD My parent is a #TrumpSupporter . As a #queer genderfree activist on the board of several movements from Justice for Black Lives to DACA protections, my life purpose is dismantling the very things he voted for. Here’s how our relationship has survived this conflict. 1/
/2 It hasn’t.

At least not in the traditional sense. We didn’t even talk for Fathers Day. Because as grateful as I am for my life and the fact that my parent had sex with someone and allowed me to survive thru birth- I know that right isn’t something he wants for all ppl.
/3 However just because we let people go doesn’t mean we let them off the hook or that we give up on them. As long as it is within our capacity, we should work as allies to educate those that want to eradicate others. That’s why every month I send reading materials to him.

Someone slid onto the DMs and asked us how to navigate having sex as a plus sized queer woman. Cause it is our job to make sure ya'll get the info you need we hit the Google streets and found some stuff.
Here is an article on @BuzzFeedLGBT called Having Sex When Your Partner Is The Same Gender, But A Different Size.…

'I’m fat. Like, in a size 22 kind of way. Over the years, my relationship with my body — along with my weight and how I take care of myself — has had its ups and downs.'

The #Reads for the Rest of Us list for Dec is coming soon @MsMagazine! I'm also working on the mother of all "most anticipated" reads (by women, #TGNC, #queer, #fat, #immigrant, #neurodivergent, international, and otherwise underrepresented writers) of 2020 list.
It's a big job! I have over 300 titles that I am sifting thru; so many look fantastic. #Fiction, #nonfiction, #poetry, and more. Some I've already #read, others not yet. I've heard from or reached out to over 65 #publishers and #publicists, they are working hard for you!
Do I know about your #newbook? Message me, email me, Tweet me, if you're not sure. My goal is to help raise visibility of historically marginalized #writers. I'm so lucky to get to learn about and read your amazing work along the way!

Post vom #Finanzamt.

Ich soll einen Fragebogen zu meiner #Sexarbeit ausfüllen. Ich habe Fragen dazu und rufe an.

Habe das Aktenzeichen noch nicht zuende aufgesagt, da bricht am anderen Ende der Leitung schallendes Gelächter aus.

Ich: Darf ich fragen, warum Sie lachen?
Herr X aus dem #Finanzamt: (kichert weiter) Ach, nur so.

Ich: Nur so? Was meinen Sie damit?

Herr X: (beruhigt sich langsam) Na, ich erinnere mich noch an den "Fall".

Ich: Achja? Was ist denn der "Fall"?

Herr X: Uns im Finanzamt XY war bislang nicht bekannt, (...)
Herr X: ...dass Sie einem #Prostitutionsgewerbe nachgehen. Das hat uns soeben erst das Finanzamt YZ aus ihrem vorigen Wohnbezirk mitgeteilt.

Im Laufe des Gesprächs stellt sich heraus, dass der offensichtliche Grund für die Belustigung von Herr X die Tatsache ist, (...)

While I’m on the subject of strangers being weird. Here’s a #thread on a #homophobic #microaggression I experienced, also from this @HiltonHotels hotel I’m in. It includes some thoughts on behavior for #customerservice folks.
So I am in Houston where one of my partners lives. My partner is a white non-binary femme & we had spent the day together before I checked into the hotel yesterday. The person checking us in said “Are you two together?” and I said yes.
The front desk person began checking me in and then said “Do you want a double suite?” I didn’t understand & asked them to repeat. The person said “You’re registered for a king bed, do you want a double suite instead? With two beds?”

I have always felt so out of place in the #queer community because #gay men can be so cruel to each other. I imagine its similar to what women experience every day in the criticism they receive by their peers and the media. I have never been the person who gets hit on at the bar,
...My friends were always chosen over me by romantic prospects. Existing as a gay man can be very isolating if you don’t live up to expectations women are expected to abide by; you have to look a certain way, you have to fit a certain gender role expectation.
Recently, I have been building relationships with other gay men, some I’ve known for years and some I’ve met online in spheres usually meant for hooking up rather than friendships. These relationships have been integral to what I hope to be a pattern of growth I am in.

I’m thrilled to announce that I am now a board member for @AboutFreedomInc, #MadisonWI’s leading queer, feminist racial justice organization. I’m wearing the shirt I got at my first board meeting today!
Freedom Inc. is a #queer & #feminist led #Black and Southeast #Asian organization which focuses on leadership development, community organizing, particularly among youth, elders and survivors of violence.
I have been so impressed with their work in my 2 years in Madison & was thrilled when I was asked to join their board. This is one way I am working to bridge the gap between academia & activism in my life and use the privileges of my position as a tenure track prof.

I am so tired but here is a picture of when I was not yet tired & tossing a glitter ball in the air while wearing fishnets & rainbow booty shorts & fairy boots at #madtownpride19 today! #pride #queer #madisonwi
I was required to wear a volunteer shirt, so I went all out on the bottom half of my body. 😂🤣😂
Closer look at these fairy boots because they are just so great. 😍

Why do monosexual people (in my experience particularly cis het men) ask pan/queer/bi people which gender they prefer? Men keep asking me this on dating sites. I truly don’t understand what they are trying to uncover with this question.
If I say men, does that make them feel more secure? If I say women, does that make them feel like they have to work harder or do they feel special to be a man dating a woman who prefers women? And what if I said I prefer non-binary folks? Would they even get it?
I think this question baffles me too bc I’ve had more sex w/ men, but more sustained intimate relationships w/ women & prefer the company of women & non-binary ppl socially. So are folks asking about a sexual, social, or romantic gender preference? Do they know the difference?

1/ Today is day 2 of our #pride series focusing on #lgbtq+ health, and we’re going to spend today reviewing some important terms. #MedTwitter
2/ Let’s start with what we will affectionately call the alphabet soup. “LGBT” is likely familiar to many, but what people say after the T varies from person to person both in form and meaning.
3/ Terms one might see after LGBT include:
❤️Q: queer, and/or questioning (one’s sexuality, gender identity, etc.)
🧡I: intersex
💚A: asexual, agender and/or ally
💙+: meant to include any and all other identities not already included in the previous letters.

Introducing my #the100dayproject inspired by @QMUNITY and my fellow #ADE @Sharon_Drummond. 100 days, 100 GIFs, 100 queer terms to educate and connect our community and allies. All GIFs created with #AppleKeynote and will be compiled on @GIPHY :… @AppleEDU
Day 1: QUEER - widely used among the community to refer to the spectrum of non-heterosexual +/ non-cisgender ppl as a shorthand. Important - this is RECLAIMED language that was/is still used as a hate term. #pride #education @QMUNITY @sogiUBC Follow along ———> #100daysofQueer
DAY 2: HETERONORMATIVE - social roles & structures that reinforce idea that heterosexuality is the presumed norm and is superior to other sexual orientations. #pride #education #sogi #humanrights @QMUNITY @sogiUBC @HRC

Follow along —-> #100daysofQueer created on #AppleKeynote

This #PrideMonth please remember that if your Pride event isn’t accessible, affordable, & inviting to trans people, non-binary folks & people of color then it’s not for the entire LBGTQIA community.
This means wheelchair accessibility. This means ASL interpreters. This means NO COPS. This means gender neutral restrooms. This means hosts who don’t make racist, sexist, ableist, transphobic, fatphobic or classist jokes.
Vet your venue. Vet your people. Make Pride great for all of us. Except straight people. Pride isn’t for straight people. (I mean, you can come I guess, but I’m not interested in making Pride comfortable for heteros. Don’t @ me on this)

Today I am headed to my local #MadisonWI @PFLAG meeting where I was invited to be their guest speaker this month. It’s an honor to do this bc I know how much it would have meant to me to come out earlier in life & have a supportive parent in that process.
I am the kind of person who gets teary-eyed every year at a Pride when I see young #queer kids looking happy & free AF. For those kids to exist we need orgs like @PFLAG which provide support & resources to educate & create community for parents of queer kids.
As our society changes, perhaps we’ll have a generation of adults fully open & prepared to parent queer & trans youth, but in the meantime we need these resources to help parents learn how to support LBGTQ+ kids. Hell, I wish my mom would go to a PFLAG meeting & I’m 32 years old!

To be clear, to participate you must live in Wisconsin and identify as a person of color (non-white) & a member of the LBGTQIA+ community (not allies). Please tag anyone who know who qualifies!
