Written on this city

Following on from yesterday’s post here’s a Tumblr, Written on this city.

"I’ve lived in Wellington for seven years now and while I love this city there are places which are indelibly linked with instances of harassment, unwanted contact and assault for me. My experiences are not unusual, and in fact I am likely to be a lesser target because I am not a WOC, a trans* or nonbinary person, disabled, fat or homeless. This is not a list of all the harassment I’ve experienced. Just an indicator of the ways in which a palimpsest of constant awareness overlays my experiences of the place I live."
