Why I commit: Zahra

Zahra, monthly donor

Zahra, monthly donor

“I commit because what Head & Hands achieves for the youth of NDG and beyond with so few resources is incredible to witness. If I can give them just a little bit more to work with, how many more youth can they help?”– Zahra

In 2010, Zahra came to Head & Hands as a six month videography intern, and we felt so lucky to have this multi-talented lady on board! She left her mark with a series of rad videos including the Do my Ladies Run This?! mini documentary, the Ask me about my Faggity Ass profile, and Since 1970, our 40th anniversary video. Zahra had been rooting for us during last fall’s Aviva competition, and when she found out we didn’t make the cut, she signed up as a monthly donor to ‘do her part’ to bring Street Work services back to NDG.

 Name: Zahra B.

Monthly since: February 2013

I fill my days with: I work as an administrator and communications coordinator for a non-profit, and I am also a classically trained singer.

As a teenager I was: Hermione Granger (an insufferable know-it-all)

 If I won a trip anywhere in the world I would: Take all my friends with me.

Is there a particular Head & Hands program that you are passionate about? I think each one of them is great. But the two I connect with most deeply are the counseling and Street Work. I know how hard it is as a young person to access affordable, non-judgmental counseling services. I know some friends who could have used it. And as for Street Work, there are too many youth who are given up on, who really just need someone to support them in practical and uplifting ways. We need this program.

Song I have stuck in my head right now: Whatever we’re working on in choir or my voice lessons.

If I could change one thing at Head & Hands: Maybe a bigger building 😉

Signing up as a monthly is safe and easy, and makes a big impact! Click here to find out more! 

Special Edition Faggity Ass Saturday: Hanky Code!

on

Reviving an old Faggity tradition, this weekend’s theme is hanky code! What is hanky code?

“IT’S HOW YOU EXPRESS YOURSELF! WEAR HANKYS TO TELL PEOPLE WHAT TURNS YOU ON, WHAT GETS YOU OFF, AND WHAT CAN MAKE YOU SCREAM! THE HANKY SYSTEM IS EASILY AVAILABLE BY GOOGLING IT (SO READ IT CAREFULLY! YOU WANNA MAKE SURE YOU’RE SENDING THE RIGHT VIBES TO THE RIGHT PPL) BUT YOU CAN ALSO MAKE UP YOUR OWN! ALL HANKYS ARE GOOD AND GAY HANKYS!”

Bring your favorite hanky or buy one at the door to cruise for someone whose (wet) dreams match yours! Wear it to the left if you wanna do it to someone (dom/top), to the right if you want it done to you (sub/bottom), and in the middle if you’re flex. Traditionally you flag from your back pocket, but you can also put your hanky around your wrist, around your neck, in your hair, in your boot, or anywhere else it’ll grab someone’s attention. Says your host for the evening, Princess Johnston Newfield, “It’s approachable and dirty to be able to express your (perhaps sometimes hidden) sexual desires through clothing – especially when everyone’s doing it! It’s a bonafide free-for-all of sexy cravings!”

Fall is back-to-school, which means the Sense Project is gearing up for a year of queer-positive, trans-positive, empowering sex ed! Featuring a performance by Vincent Chevalier and DJs Tamika and Sam behind the decks at the Royal Phoenix, this FAS is a perfect start to your September.

Faggity Ass Fridays – Posters of Parties Past!!

on

We recently celebrated the 2nd anniversary of our dear queer dance party, Faggity Ass Fridays. This monthly fundraiser provides a steady flow of income for the Sense Project (yay!) and a sexy space for queers to get down (double yay!)!!

The party would not be nearly as much fun (or as lucrative!) without the help of many, many fabulous volunteers. These people pull door shifts until 3:30 am, dance around in panties and prosthetics for screaming crowds, and distribute condoms like it is going out of style. One of our most beloved volunteers is Xavier Tolentino, who has used his creative genius and dirty mind to produce almost every single poster for every single Faggity. Thank you Xavs – we love you!!

Check out some of Xavier’s amazing work here:
