Every year, the Queer & Asian Conference (QACON) brings queer APIs and allies from across the United States to participate in engaging workshops, keynotes from prominent activists, performers, scholars, and politicians, a “Storytime” session in which individuals are invited to share their personal stories with one another in small, intimate groups, performances from our talented community members, and of course, the afterparty!
For our seventh annual QACON, our theme “RefrAction” directs attention to those issues that are not necessarily a priority for mainstream LGBT political agendas. The capitalized “A” signifies how activism can effectively integrate social justice movements into our surroundings through outlets that are not always strictly political, in arenas outside grassroots community organizing.
This conference is free of charge and lunch will also be provided on Saturday. You may also request free housing provided by our volunteers.

Paintbrushes, move over. There’s a cooler way to paint in town. Enter water transfer printing, a hydro-coating process that essentially uses liquid images and ink to coat 3-D objects of any material. If only this sorcery could be used for our nails… new venture?
Actually, you can. It’s called water marbling. I’ve done it many times. It’s hella easy and there are a ton of videos on youtube to watch if you need help getting started.
You can do “hydro dipping” yourself! It’s an excellent option for cosplayers, car owners, or anyone who want to add any kind of pattern to an object.
You can buy pre-made patterns here.
OR buy printable (yes, printable) hydro transfer paper here.
The streets of San Francisco are lined with pear, plum and apple trees thanks to ‘guerilla grafters’ secretly grafting fruit-bearing scions onto ornamental, non-fruit bearing trees making fresh fruit free and available to everyone who wishes to pick some.
'All you have to do is make a slit with a knife in a branch on the host tree, insert a branch from a fruit-bearing tree, and secure it with tape. Once it heals, it connects.” — Tara Hui started the movement and has been grafting fruit branches to city trees for two years now.
How great would it be to see free fruit from guerilla grafters growing in your city? Want to start a trend?
Trees and people are so fucking amazing
