Heading to Tennesse this week to reconnect with my Faemily and learn some things. It’s been 5 years since I’ve been back. Meeting the Atlanta Fae community was one of the first times in my adult life that I realized there were other people like me. Queer people who were who they were freely. People who let others be who they are without judgement or shame. I’m thankful I have people like this in my life and I can’t wait to see them again!!! Wonder how many names…? . 📸: @erik_carter . . Ps. @j_robot is meeting my Faemily for the first time! I can hardly contain my excitement!!! 💖💖💜😍🦄
