POME is located in Austin, Texas, and while most of us here dealt with rains, winds, and mild flooding and damage, it’s minor compared to what those living near the Texas coast are suffering. If you’d like to help people in Houston or the Gulf Coast right now, here is a good list to get you started. Take care of each other, y’all.

Look, gossip can be good and it often is the only way that marginalized voices can build networks together.

What’s more often overlooked, though, is how, even in a world where organizing and community-building are facilitated by technological tools like social networking platforms and communication apps, gossip, whether online or in real life, is still, and will forever be, the main resource many communities have for regulating, protecting, and preserving themselves.



It’s a brief Afternoon Snack, but here’s that link again for helping the victims of hurricane Harvey. Stay together, and stay safe, y’all.


Pomegranate Magazine

POMEmag is the internet’s premier pastel, macabre feminist dork publication. Or at least, a very pastel, macabre feminist dork publication that is leaning into that identity pretty hard.
