Commentary on Beatitudes 5:3-10
The Beatitudes are eight blessings in the Sermon on the
Mount in the Gospel of Matthew. Each is a proverb-like proclamation, without
narrative, "cryptic, precise, and full of meaning. Each one includes a
topic that forms a major biblical theme". The words o...

I am asking for your financial support so I can finish my book, Authenticity and Imagination in the Face of Oppression.  I am a woman who is transgender and a writer.  My goal is to publish this book so that the transgender community, allies, academics and communities' of faith can gain knowledge and healing.  Your financial support is appreciated.  Thank you!
 
Support an up and coming writer. I am raising funds for living expenses so I can finish "Authenticity and Imagination in the Face of Oppression". Somewhat autobiographical it is about my Journey as a Black Transgender Woman through gender, sexuality, race and religion in a quest for authenticity in the face of Oppression. It is offered as a tool for those who long for freedom and liberation of heart and soul.

Here's a very hard reality: If it's good enough, you can sell the manuscript to an established publisher.  They'll buy it from you, IF it's saleable - and the translation of that is IF enough people will care enough about the message (and the way you present it) to purchase your book on that subject.  That is a hard fact of being a writer.  http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=len+mcdougall

This doesn't surprise me. Disappointing indeed. The Price of Nice Nails http://nyti.ms/1KOuiMq
Manicurists are routinely underpaid and exploited, and endure ethnic bias and other abuse, The New York Times has found.

The Great Struggle of White Supremacy and Privilege to Remain Relevant
This piece is on the struggle for relevance by white supremacy and privilege as exhibited by the Republican party and a conservative almost repressive agenda.  Some readers may believe that white supremacy and privilege may never recede but I beg to differ....

Introduction
I am Monica Joy.  I am a Black transgender woman who identifies as queer who lives out her faith without apology.  This has been costly yet the question is, "what have you actually lost", yea, go figure.  I am highly educated and gifted so that God would be glorified in all things.  Like, none of this is easy, yet it is worthy of the faith professed.
