So last time we talked was in September and as you know I lost my sister and that sucked.
Since then We debuted my band Telepathic Children and that was amazing and I thank you for that love and support world. Ya'll showed up to our rave debut and danced and sang along and we were all shocked at how ya'll knew our songs. Must be our Telepathic connection. #TotallyTelepathic.
We have a Rave we will be closing out the year with. Just waiting for Retrograde to end so we can share all the fun deets. Follow our page on Instagram. @TELEPATHICCHILDREN.
Ok so November 26th was my birthday and it was amazing. We partied at the Stud and brought my birthday in beautifully.

Happy Birthday to Maya Songbird. I just want to say last year this time I had got out of a very toxic situation with someone who never deserved my trust. I felt broken but mostly upset that I lost so much in one day putting my faith in someone unfaithful. Please leave abusive relationships so you can continue to enjoy birthdays. Someone who loves you does not hit you. I have left so many men and will continue to as many times as it takes to end it all. I have survived so much and am committed to exclusive self love. I’m commencing on a 26 day journey of self discovery alone. Scared but open to the freedom and growth that has chosen me. I am thankful for the light despite the dark days that still shines in me. But most importantly great friendship and sincere birthday wishes. And an amazing rhinestone birthday cake from @aliend0g. And a family of freaks who always comes out to my shows around the globe and dances with me. Sincerely 36 yr old tits. Also @mayasmagicshop launches online today and @creepyjoni and I drop our song “Chocolate Cherry”

This birthday for me was a chapter closing on a level for me. Just a realization of where I have been appreciating. Where I am going...forgiving people who tried to stop or harm me in my past. Moving on.
I launched my online merch store. For years I have vended Maya's Magic Shop at shows and on the road and I have attempted many times and failed with going online with the storefront and this year the match finally lit. I am glad to have opened a physical storefront and Online Storefront and of course you can catch Maya's Magic Shop in stores nationwide. I have an option to blog from the storefront site and will also update where you can shop restocked items nationwide for 2019.
This has been a blessing. A true testament to hard work and never giving up. Shop our inventory here at www.mayasmagicshop.com

"Did she Just come for my gig...Look at her she's trying to be meeeee"
Also collaborated with Zedgar Infinitii for a cute little song called "The Blame Game" in a true lovers quarrel.

On Sunday I am excited to return to my neighborhood that I grew up in to play an awesome fundraiser for a special organization near and dear to me and that is Lyric! So come out to Cafe Flore to raise money to keep Lyric thriving. The best thing about Lyric is when I was a teen and we went to the dances for queer teens and also they hired all the queer teens. Lyric is an awesome organization so come out and donate and if you can't make it donate to them online!
Thank you for having me this is literally legendary considering I grew up dancing on the Dancefloor at all the Lyric Dances now I am commanding the dancefloor to raise funds for Lyric. This is like totally full circle!

So its on 8/19 from 3pm-8pm at Oakland Secret...So don't you do it don't you dare be late.
Last but not least I have a real life announcement to make. Dorsey and I started a band. I met Dorsey a while back when she was in Spray tan and we went on tour and we clicked so tough and decided we wanted to make music together on the one. We share a love for the funk, oldies and disco so we did it we started our band! And after jamming with two other band members we found our match in Lindsay and the rest is history. We are a three part band called Telepathic children and we rock. Check us out on the gram @Telepathicchildren! But most importantly come to our very first show together at @MassmanGallery in Oakland on 8/24! We are debuting a 4 song set and we are dope....
Nothing but good times. All the time. We were meant to be the power of three! Ok so going to close out this post with some photos from Rebecca Heikkila aka @dalmation.dimension on instagram from the Party at Granny's Oakland where everyone came out and danced all night long to raise money for the families legal fees and the families that are stuck at the border and I want to let ya'll know that $1500 was raised and donated. All that matters is serving each other in the name of liberation. Love still rules here!
Thank you for eight years of unlimited unconditional love and support on the dance floor. Can't wait to dance with you....I've got a rainbow in my pants and can't wait to see you dance. It is way past my bedtime. XO

Keep the love flowing. I hope this helps everyone who might feel insecure about their bodies because you are perfect.
Please keep your negative thoughts or comments to yourself especially when approaching someone in fat skin who loves themself. You should take inspiration from that daring act of self love to love your self. There is no weight, height, skin tone, or gender requirement for bold self love. All are allowed and deserve to be loved and love themselves. #cheers!
