DH Vancouver Staff Nov 05, 2013 8:59 am

This could be the most ‘East Van’ Craigslist listing ever made. Someone is on the lookout for a rad/queer/trans/punk roommate to move into a musky (no mould) house. 

See other funny Craigslist Vancouver ads:

Here is the ad:

looking for rad/queer/trans*/punk roommate to move in asap.

the room: $500 + utilities. on the main floor. bay window. hardwood floors. high ceiling.

the house:
-3 bedroom house on st. george and 15th
-2 bathrooms
-2 large, covered porches
-front and back yards
-2 floors
-hardwood floors and linoleum in kitchen/bathrooms

con: kitchen smells musky (but no visible sign of mold)

full disclosure: this house is apparently going to be torn down in about a year or so (but who really knows). we are on a month-to-month lease.

we just moved in so we’re still setting everything up.

the roommates:
-a white, lesbian librarian from newfoundland, who won’t shut up about the majesty of newfoundland, likes critical theory, will act like yr mom (if yr into that sort of thing), and has a functioning projector. she’s a taurus.
-a white, queer, non-binary trans* person who likes to talk about accountability, eat hummus, and give weird haircuts. they’re a scorpio.
-a 15 pound, 2 year old dog who likes to eat underwear and cuddle (will only be there part-time). he’s a capricorn.

-solid anti-oppressive politics
-sex/poly/kink positive
-like dogs
-into sharing food (preferably vegan/vegetarian)
-want to be engaged in the space yr living in
-able to keep shared space clean
-committed to open, honest communication
-like dumpstering? resisting? protesting? biking? gardening? fixing things? making things? playing music? cooking? gender bending? stick n’ pokes? documentaries? being supportive? fermenting? liberating retail products?
-hopefully have furniture but if not that’s cool

dogs welcome but no cats (sorry).

if interested, send a message with some info about you ie. why you think you’d be a good fit, what yr into, what you do with yr days, etc.
