Black Lives Matter

Hey friends,

I hope you all are well. As you have seen these past weeks have been very important in the world and change is coming -finally, one might add. Here´s links to help you read up, follow and maybe (if you are able) to donate as well. There are many more but to get you started... Follow the black & POC people posting, give space, listen and learn. Support. 
I will do my best to be a good ally, I´ll  fail at times but please tell me about it. White priviledge is real and we need to educate ourselves. 
Also, happy Pride-month everyone <3 Keep being queer and to all my friends in the protests: be safe.

Oh and while I have your attettion..."Not being political" is a very privileged attitude. Also, burlesque is, and has always been, political. 

The University of Eastern Finland offers a course about anti-racism, even if you can´t take the course the material is free and availeable for all (just log in as a guest). The material is in Finnish.

Itä-Suomen yliopisto tarjoaa kurssin anti-rasismista, voit lukea materiaalin ilmaiseksi (kirjautumalla vieraana) vaikket voi suorittaa varsinaista kurssia: 

Ruskeat Tytöt  (in English: ) media is working in Finland to bring attention and knowledge to people here, please consider donating if you can.
Ruskeat Tytöt media tekee tärkeää työtä laajentaakseen representaatiota Suomessa. Voit myös tukea toimintaa ryhtymällä lahjoittajaksi.
