The lovely ladies [info]tanyad and [info]whereisjoy  are spearheading an amazing campaign entitled The We Got Your Back Project.

In light of recent events, it's clear these projects are needed more than ever. Case in point:

So… Joy E. came up with a nifty idea. A project where LGBTQIA youth, straight allies, adults and others could share their stories to encourage and strengthen youth who may be getting bullied, harassed and otherwise mistreated for being who they are. This project will make sure that lgbtqia of color, bisexual and transgendered folks will not be left out of the work of telling their stories and having their voices heard.

Yes, I know some of you are thinking… but there’s already a similar project out there! Well, yes there is but whereisjoy and I wanted to be sure everyone’s voice is heard, that everyone is able to share their story in the hopes it would give strength to others who are dealing with coming out, being out and bullied as well just for being who they are.

This idea is just a wee idea, barely out of the box and we need your help to make sure it thrives. What we need help with is:

Contributors; anyone who falls within the LGTBTQI & A spectrum, allies, anyone who has been touched by the injustice of having their voices silenced or drowned out by the masses.

A couple people to be editors; to help with reviewing content, posting and maintaining the site (which is now a WordPress site). Please note that the site is pretty bare at the moment, and we are adding content, submission guidelines and such over the next couple of weeks.

As the project grows, we hope to have someone who is media savvy, who can talk to the local LGBTQIA media, and deal with the issues that will arise from creating a project similar to one that already exists. Please note that we are not doing this to be in direct competition with the It Gets Better Project, but rather to supplement and give everyone a voice who may not feel as if they will be heard otherwise.

For now, please spread the word about this project, what we hope to do and most importantly the soft launch date of mid-October 2010. In the interim, please leave questions here, if you want your question discussed off site want to have a longer chat, email us at: wegotyourbackproject@gmail.com

So there’s the great idea, let’s make sure it not only learns to crawl but learns to soar.

on a non period note.....
I also head over to sally beauty supply I wanted to check out their nail art stuff. I want to try doing some of this. I bought a kiss 3 pack of nail art polish black white and a silver glitter yesterday at walgreens. I saw that the sinful nail polish now has some nail art polish for 1.99 I didn't get any but I should have the other walgreens i went to today didnt have many colors. My walgreens had a lot of the colors. the walgreens i went to today only had halloween colors. orange black white neon green.
sally beauty supply had tons of different colors for 3.99
I am wanting to try some of their polishes that I've never bought before. i've been using a lot of opi the past few years but in all honesty some of their colors need as many coats as the cheapos to get to the color on the bottle.... I have used lots of sally hansen stuff for years and I do have a few sinful colors from walgreen and that nail polish is not bad at all.
I want to try the china glaze and fingerpaints polishes. they have lots of nice colors.
I am really trying to not be such a nail polish snob lol since i do have quite a few opi polishes. I guess now in my opinion it's the base coat and the topcoat that keeps the polish nice and chip proof not the actual polish. Ever since I started using orly's bonder base and noticed how much longer polish held using that over any other base coat i used. It really opened my eyes.
After having acrylics for so long and having polish last that really spoiled me. I hated polishing my natural nails. I hated the chips and all that. I wanted my polish to last a long time on my real nails. On my toes polish lasts forever. fingers not so much. BUT now even using that instant artificials polish lasts longer. I do wash my hands a whole bunch when I have Evan since I am changing diapers and if it can hold up to hand washing a million times a day it's pretty darn good.
I am still working on trying to get my mom to try it.
I bought another topcoat..... Until i get my UV light I need to find a HG substitute lol I got the brucci acrylic top coat. I want something super shiney. I did see a heat cured top coat I could try that one too and cure that with a hair dryer lol
I bought a crystal nail file too. I wanted to get a glass file but that was a bit spendy for this week so I got the cheaper crystal one. I also got some non acetone nail polish remover since I do have a few nails with silk wraps on them.
Ok I think I am done babbling for the afternoon lol gonna finish watching reruns of ally mcbeal on reelz channel  man I need to save up to the series boxed set. I missed this show
