femme flaggin’, represent.
So, for those of you following the latest news, Philadelphia lost a lovely young femme, Kyra Kruz, about a week idea. As we’re all busy planning vigils and organizing ways to remember her, I thought of having a femme flagging color and/or symbol to remember our fellow femmes (and all other trans*, gender-variant, and queer people) who are no longer with us.
I started with this: (Pardon the bad quality, it was the best I could do.)
I choose bright pink because Kyra’s facebook page has a photo of a tree covered in pink flowers captioned “This is my dream world.” I added a heart.
This was just sort of spur of the moment, and I’d love to here if anybody had any better ideas.

The first femme flagger
Way back it 1985 Atwood predicted both femme flagging and the one dangly earring fad, ‘cause she’s rad that way.
“Moira, sitting on the edge of my bed, legs crossed, ankle on knee, in her purple overalls, one dangly earring, the gold fingernail she wore to be eccentric, a cigarette between her stubby yellow-ended fingers.”
