“In a world that is hard to live in, one often questions the use of the word ‘optimism.’ On the one hand, optimism references a possibility for hope in the future – a hope in part thanks to all the incredible work that queer, trans, people of color, womxn, activists, culture makers, artists, and educators are doing. On the other hand, the confidence of optimism, like when people say ‘why can’t you just be optimistic about the future?’ can make some feel uncomfortable. It feels like optimism doesn’t always hold the complexities of what it means to look towards the future or a successful outcome.”
