Queer Streamers & Queer Writer Affirmations

Queer Streamers & Queer Writer Affirmations
queer streamer recs! agender frogs! short story excerpt! boyfriend concepts! queer writer affirmations!

Before we get into the good people and things, I just want to let everyone know that I was recently contacted by twitter user @outliersgeorg. I detail my experiences in the google doc linked here.
The short version is, outliersgeorg accused fellow trans streamer and my good friend Hachikoexe of harassing trans women… while refusing to provide any evidence of said harassment.
Now, since the initial release of this document, I’ve added some addendums that I made in response to outliersgeorg subtweeting me; as well as some clarifications.
Like I said in one of the addendums later in the doc, Hachiko’s not a CEO or a politician or anyone with power to avoid the consequences of his actions, he’s an intersex trans man living in poverty. Any real evidence of harassment would end him professionally. This whole farce disgusts me not only as his friend, but as a professional and a person.
Please stay safe everyone. Again, this was @outliersgeorg on Twitter. They also go by Alastair.
Queer Streamer Shout-Outs!!
First up is the fantastic Miktastic (they/ze)! Ze is a Black ace gaming streamer who provides a fun, chill atmosphere. I highly recommend them for people who have low audio sensory thresholds. I originally caught one of zir Mario Sunshine streams; although they’re currently streaming Dead by Daylight to raise money for St. Jude! Miktastic also makes colorful kiln art!
Next up is Stellecraft (she/they)! Stelle’s a good, old friend of mine who streams Minecraft, The Witcher 3, and other games. Nursing school kept her super busy, but since they’re done with it for now, they should be able to stream more often in the coming weeks. They’ve yet to hit affiliate, so I would greatly appreciate y'all helping her out with that.
Last but not least, FloppyDiskMaster (they/them) is another queer gaming streamer who’s yet to hit affiliate. They’re a trans person whose streams have kickstarted a new chapter of their life, so they need as much support as possible! They’re Flopy (with one P) DiskMaster on twitter.
Agender Frogs!!

Mini Queer Streamer Shout Outs!!
I’d also like to shout out ProtoGilly (he/him). ProtoGilly did a weekend marathon of horrible games to raise money for a homeless trans person. He and his team ended up raising $1000.
Short Story Excerpt!
This is an excerpt from my short story: A Bloody Tale. It was written on stream, and features three queer characters escaping a supernatural church together.
~ begin excerpt ~
“Pleasure to meet you both… That’s an agender pin,” Razorthorn pointed happily at Shadow’s accessory. “Alright!”
They bumped fists.
“We have a spare, if you like,” Shadow was about to reach into Shiver’s messenger bag to grab it when Razorthorn empathically shook deir head.
“Nothing’s stabbing my baby,” dey said, grinning proudly as dey tugged the lapels of deir coat. “But thanks.”
“Hi,” Shiver said, lacking any idea what one said to a vampire they just fed.
“Hi,” Razorthorn gave faer a smile and a cute lil wave. “Let’s get the fuck outta here.”
~ end excerpt ~
You can read the rest of A Bloody Tale at the link here. Content notes include: offering blood to heal a vampire. Christianity-fueled bigotry. Hallucinations. Mentioned medical trauma. Food scarcity.
