BIRTHDAY BENZ for TOURMALINE

BIRTHDAY BENZ FOR TOURMALINE

It’s our magical loved one Tourmaline’s birthday on July 20th. For her birthday, let’s harness the power of collective dreaming and redistribution and make this dream car real for our bday girl. She deserves everything good + luxurious in the world, and yes, that includes a pink benzzz. You know you want to see her zooming around NYC in this thing.

Many of us are deeply indebted to Tourmaline for her endless contributions to our lives, our trans + queer culture, our magic, our ability to dream. She has reached back into history and helped us to remember our transcestors through her art, her beauty making, her presence. She is the reason so many of us know who Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera are.

Let's continue to fundraise beyond Black trans angels' survival and basic needs - let's continue to support their EASE, PLUSHNESS, PLEASURE, FRIVOLITY, JOY, + LUXURY.

As Tourmaline said in her recent Vogue article: 

"The world that I dream of is filled with ease. ⁣⁣I’m not satisfied with Black trans lives mattering; I want Black trans lives to be easy, to be pleasurable, and to be filled with lush opportunities. I want the abundance we’ve gifted the world—the art, the care, the knowledge, and the beauty—to be offered back to us tenfold."

Let's meet this goal so she can have the car of her dreams. Open your wallets + your hearts. We have 16 days - let's do this!

We are a group of Tourmaline's friends and loved ones based all over the world. 
100% of the funds will be given to Tourmaline to purchase the car of her dreams.
