creative freelancers, get involved with the IWW & clydeside IWW creative freelancers organising committee

our board member jo is taking action against their ex-employer tobias slater / the summer house weekend, who owe them nearly £2k in stolen wages

the union makes us strong!

public health is a collective responsibility, and we need to show solidarity with those more vulnerable than us

as queers, it's our inheritance/burden/privilege to creatively make public health fun and sexy. when we open, we intend to do just that x

we understand the financial and social pressure for small organizations to host events right now

if that's you, please get in touch and we'll brainstorm how to fundraise for you, and/or how to host fun, safe, social outdoor events

if you're sick or need time off to self-isolate but your boss is being difficult, talk to your union!

if you don't have a union yet, you can't do better than the IWW; they have branches across the world and they'll help you out immediately

if you're self-isolating and need help with things like grocery runs, dog walks, or other errands, get in touch with mutual aid groups like glasgow mutual aid or mutual aid trans edinburgh (MATE)

if you're sad or lonely because of the pandemic,
mutual aid groups are a great first contact. many of them offer social support, and if they don't, they'll know where to point you

if you need mutual aid recommendations in your area, get in touch!

if you go to a large outdoor event, or any indoor event outside of your household, we strongly advise that you self-isolate for 4 days after, wait to see if symptoms develop, and take lateral flow tests

if you develop symptoms or test positive, you should inform everyone you've been in contact with so they know to isolate and get tested

getting tested regularly is quick and easy way to know your status — you could be asymptomatic, so it's good to test yourself even if you feel fine

here's the link again for at-home test kits:

if you have any covid symptoms (fever, loss/change of taste or smell, or coughing), get tested right away

getting vaccinated is key: it greatly reduces your chance of infection, and of hospitalization and death if you do get covid, but doesn't mean you can't get covid, or long covid

if you're gathering indoors:

- wear your mask
- keep as much physical distance as possible from others
- ventilate the space as much as possible
- limit your alcohol/substance consumption so you can make cognizant decisions

it's murderously irresponsible of the indoor mask restrictions to have been lifted in england, and now positive cases across the uk are spiking (data: coronavirus.data.gov.uk)

if you're going to do one thing to make your indoor socializing safer: wear a mask

Show thread

if you're going to take a health risk, we hope that you do everything you can to mitigate it, for yourself and others

- get vaccinated asap
- wash/sanitize your hands regularly
- take weekly lateral flow tests

shaming doesn't work; it only stigmatizes illness and drives people to more risky practices, and less disclosure

we're here to help you make the best choices you can for your health and public safety, not give you the evil eye if you've taken risks

Show thread

the safest way to gather is outdoors, and in small groups (less than 10 people)

in larger outdoor gatherings, you should be wearing your mask, or keeping a physical distance of at least 2 meters from everyone outside your household

✨ a long post about covid safety ✨

given the data and the guidance from medical experts, we don't believe that it's safe to attend indoor events in the uk

if we want the pandemic to end, we need to keep being careful to reduce covid transmission and keep each other safe

loophole: tell glasgow council that the overflowing bins and bulk uplifts they ignore in govanhill are actually community pantries ✨

Show thread

glasgow city council removed the Food Not Bombs community pantry from queers park, but they've done nothing to address the systemic food insecurity people in our neighborhood face: in fact, they've sabotaged community efforts to help feed people

like others have said, they'll ignore a bulk uplift request for rubbish like an old fridge on the street, but as soon as that fridge is repurposed as a pantry to actually feed people they show up in 2 days to remove it
