I feel like some of this [taking down statues] again was inevitable, with the Black Lives Matter. And we need to figure out a solution. Again I don't know what that is. I've always wanted to, and I need to find out who to communicate this to, but we need to erect memorials — and we're in a time of destroying the symbols of white supremacist thinking and our ugly past. I enjoyed in Germany how in Berlin they had evolved there. Some — I mean a lot of their you know, it's very symbolic, you know, when a regime is changing, you know to pull down Stalin and Lenin and all those kind of things and to tear those down or take the heads off or whatever. But if the point is to learn and remember things from our history even that they're ugly, you know, I think I think it's an interesting concept to change, keep the monument there and add some art to it to indicate that we've evolved from this other old way of thinking and that's what I would like to see some creative art person erect some kind of statue or monument to recognize our ugly past and recognize those who have died as a result of slavery as a result of the genocide against the Native Americans against and other cultures that we've so badly treated yet tried to take from their culture.
As somebody who identifies as nonbinary and asexual — and my fiancé does as well — We both normally celebrate Pride, whether that means like going to some of the events that are usually like usually happening because of it. Going to a friend's drag show or something like that, or even attending whatever pride festival that we're able to. We haven't been able to do that this year, but something that has been really really heartwarming to see is the queer community online being supportive of each other not being able to do things and also talking about how important it is to follow social distance guidelines and things like that. One thing that I can think of less related to Pride, but still about the queer community, is with all of the racial Injustice in the protests going on lately with the most vocal and at least internet active groups that I've seen out there, is the queer community talking about Marsha P. Johnson, the plight of trans people of color, the plight of trans people in general in 2020 and just bringing up all these valid points of intersectionality and the ways that the culture of people of color and queer culture intersect and have always intersected since like 90's gay drag ball culture to Marsha P. Johnson's activism back in the seventies with the Stonewall riots. So that's just been really nice to see.
I'm excited for school again. I'm a little bit nervous though cause I don't know how it's going to be or if it's even going to be like -- how just like how they're going to set it up. I'm most excited to see my friends again and even people I'm not super close friends with I'm excited to be able to talk to. I'm starting to spend some more time with people outside my house my friends by social distancing. We're like being six feet away. We hammock a lot together or face masks and stuff. I don't have a specific term for people that I’m not isolating with.
Tell me about some things that you did outside this week. Well, I played… We played Adventure Girls and singing and we pretended Grandpa was Zeus and Grandma was Hera. And then what did you what were you guys doing? We were singers slash Secret — slash Secret Adventure Girls, slash singers. So we go on adventures when we need to or when somebody finds something.
So the question is “what did I do outside this week?” Well today I've been playing outside with my brother doing Bubbles and also going on with the bike rides and have going on long walks with my family. And then yesterday I went on a Pokemon go walk with one of my friends."
