Shameless Self-Promotion Sunday

Promote yourself.

Netiquette reminders:

  • Want to recommend someone else’s writing instead? Try the latest signal-boosting thread.
  • we expect Content Notes as a courtesy to our readers for problematic content in linked posts and/or their comment threads (a habit of posting only triggering/disparaging links may annoy the Giraffe (you really don’t want to annoy the Giraffe)), Content Notes are not needed if your post title is already descriptive of problematic content.
  • extended discussion of self-promotion links on this thread is counter-productive for the intended signal-boosting –  the idea is for the promoted sites to get more traffic.  If it’s a side-discussion that would be off-topic/unwelcome/distressing on the other site, take it to #spillover after leaving a note on this thread redirecting others there.

    Hey everyone! I have a very exciting announcement! My sister and I have started a new feminism advocacy site called FEMVOCATES.

    The focus is feminism around the world. This means that we are a totally inclusive site, and want to make sure that voices from around the world are heard.

    After traveling RTW for over one year, I am currently volunteering in India at a women’s empowerment centre. I realized throughout my travels how important it is for us to work towards equality in every single country. We also provide information on other feminist sites, writers and NGOs.

    I would love for you to check out FEMVOCATES and provide feedback.

    We are also accepting Guest Posts.

    Twitter. Instragram. Pinterest.

    Thank you,
    Happy Sunday!

    The search for Andre Gray enters it’s fifth month. We are struggling to raise funds for a reward fund and also to support his family. Andre is a 34 year gay black man in Pittsburgh.

    I’m a long-time proponent that municipal government should hire and appoint publicly openly LGBTQ people to leadership roles. The Advocate seems to have my back.

    We investigated herbal remedies for menstrual cramps — touted by the manufacturers and promoted by word of mouth, but low on scientific evidence. Unfortunately, herbal medicine and other dietary supplements aren’t evaluated by the FDA for safety or effectiveness, making it difficult to make informed decisions about your health.

    And if you require more links to click, we have a headline roundup for you.
