no but like sit down and imagine with me
laurent and gerome do rounds of the camp and get comfortable with each other and have a firm understanding of each other’s lonliness though they never directly talk about it
laurent and gerome often mothering people from the sidelines, laurent being more direct while gerome adds to the background
laurent and gerome being most comfortable in silence around each other because they get each other, but can hold up a conversation
inigo being like ‘laurent how do you get gerome to talk to you like a normal person’ and laurent being like ‘he always talks to everyone like a ‘normal’ person, I’m not quite sure what you mean’ because they totally don’t see how nice they are to each other

hello! i am doing a thing!
as some of you might know, may day (may 1st) and the month of may in general is the celebration of Mary in catholic tradition (likely because of her conflation with Flora, the roman goddess of flowers and spring. floralia, the festival in Flora’s honor, usually happened in may).
so in honor of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, i’d like to do a money give away thing for trans women and amab trans folk.
if you would like to be entered into a drawing to receive $1,000 for help with life or transition or health stuff or whatever, please send me an ask so i can have your URL. i will enter all names into a virtual hat and the person whose name i pick on may day will get the monies. you must have a pay pal set up bc i am bad at mailing things!
i was thinking about doing a thing where if you are a woc, or disabled, etc etc, you could get your name into the hat more times? but i also don’t want to be the one to judge other people’s oppressions, so feedback on whether or not i should do that is desired.
pls spread the word by reblogging.
Monica Jones is one of 350 arrests carried out by a group called Project ROSE (Reaching Out to the Sexually Exploited) since Phoenix police teamed up with the University of Arizona social work program to start the anti-prostitution initiative in 2011. Over two weekends each year, more than 100 police officers detain people whom they suspect are sex workers. Those people are then brought handcuffed to a church, where Project ROSE workers then offer them a choice: if they qualify, they can enroll in a diversion program offered by Catholic Charities. Or they can be prosecuted for prostitution-related charges and face jail time. They’re not allowed to consult with a lawyer before they decide to enroll in the program because, even though they’re in handcuffs and being threatened with prosecution, the detained individuals aren’t technically under arrest.
Project ROSE is a classic example of how efforts that claim to promote the welfare of women, particularly low-income women and others on the margins, serve to further criminalize them. In a piece originally written for Al-Jazeera America, investigative reporter Jordan Flaherty noted that Arizona dictates mandatory minimums and felony upgrades for sex work: People convicted for the first time serve 15 days in jail with no possibility of parole. On their fourth conviction, they’re hit an automatic felony and a minimum of 180 days in jail.
