"brighter than blight" exhibit by ise lyfe

For three decades, the Greenside housing project was the terror of East Oakland, a vortex of drugs, shootings and vermin.

But for two weekends [June 2013], on the eve of its demolition, the complex is being reborn as a three-story art installation intended to celebrate its demise and pay tribute to the hundreds of long-suffering people who live there.
"Brighter Than Blight," by Oakland hip-hop artist and poet Ise Lyfe, includes photographs, poems, an altar, a recreation of "Grandma’s House" and other installations scattered throughout the 16-unit complex, which he painted black for the occasion. - SFGate

NEED COUCH - San Francisco

transhousingnetwork:

Hi!

So I’m currently living in San Francisco in a youth shelter [because omg the rent here]. It’s a stressful enough experience in and of itself, but recently an individual who lives there has been verbally / sexually harassing me for being trans. Just today they assaulted my friend as my friend was trying to defend me. The person is presently in jail but they’re going to get out soon and I don’t want to be found by them when they do. So I’d really really like somewhere to stay, probably just for a few days until I can work some other things out.

I only really need a place to sleep, I can figure out food / shower / whatever else.

About me:

I’m a trans woman of color, and I spend most of my time do working on things. I have an IT job that I’m starting in January but it’s an internship and not enough more to live off of. The majority of my free time right now is spent working on several different programming projects. I’m also pretty well intergrated into local queer and tech (sometimes both) communities, at least given the amount of time I’ve been in San Francisco. I’ve honestly got a lot of very good things going on for me right now - but apparently things can ever be going but so well when you’re trans >_< Anyways, I’m a super low impact individual, quiet, very socially aware, doesn’t smoke / drink, and a neat freak. I promise you won’t have any issues with me except maybe that I might bore you if you’re not into video games / anime.

But anyways, yes. Need a place to stay! You can contact me on tumblr (radicalwizlynn.tumblr.com), look at my twitter if you want (@lynnmagic), or email me (firemagelynn at gmail.com). I hope this works out!!!!

(PS: the friend who defended me needs a place to stay too, if someone has space for that? she’s just more able to deal with stressful environments so she isn’t in panic mode looking for a place to crash right now)

help a sister out y’all
