I am leaving this website behind. I am committing to growing, learning and healing beyond what once was for me. Maintaining a public artist persona through social media is not a space I want to give energy to anymore. The forever mood is fluidity, queer joy and decolonial impermanence shifting us into a better time (and if you know, well you know!).- Gabby Loo

Notes on Diversity by Lee Lai
A comic published in The Lifted Brow #39
"Finding your value outside of an algorithm designed to dismantle our imagination is the gift that keeps giving. My friends who aren’t here, have gifted themselves with time and space that I often wonder why I haven’t been more protective of in the past. There’s no amount of world suffering that we can’t find the capacity for, however when you are in your own imagination battle to see a better world, where you too can exist, protecting what you absorb is a necessary action to keep you alive."
- Bhenji Ra
"Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we are being brainwashed to believe. The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling – their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability.
Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them. Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing."
- Arundhati Roy
“All that you touch,
You Change.
All that you Change,
Changes you.
The only lasting truth Is Change.
God is Change”
