West Philly housemate required!

 Timothy sent this to me. Timothy is a muffin/muffin/horse, if you know what I mean. He is not joking about having a gentle pitbull, and he is really a delight. I first met him related to radical cheerleading (which maybe we both were and maybe neither), but we had the same friends in high school despite being separated by the Jersey wasteland. (Sorry, you know it's all love with me and Jersey but I am from Philly and we have to rib.)

I don't know about the others, but Timothy has been living in shared housing for, like, ever and I would think his house would be on the High-Functioning Communal Housing list. Hey we should have that list too!


David Bowie's Cousin's House is looking for a new housemate starting November 1. The open room is medium-sized, with two windows and a large closet. Rent is around $250 a month.
We're a seven-bedroom semi-collective house in West Philly. We often cook together, share veggies and order bulk food staples as a house. Our home includes six awesome people (seven with you!) and one very sweet and gentle pit bull. We are mostly queer, and we range in age from 23 to 34. We're a friendly, low-key house - not a party house! - and we like to keep our home clean and tidy. We also like to hang out in the kitchen, have house dinners and dinner parties, and do fun projects together.

The house is a large, clean and spacious three-story row house with lots of shared space, including a big kitchen, dining room, living room and a backyard with a small porch and a mulberry tree. There is also a large attic with a crafting area, and a basement with a washer/dryer, carpentry and bike tools, a work bench, and storage space. We're across the street from the Kingsessing Public Library, and conveniently located a block from the 13 trolley stop and two blocks from the 11 trolley.

You might be a good fit for our house if:
- you're queer friendly and trans friendly
- you're excited about collective living and a tidy house
- you don't come with any cats or dogs
- you're looking for a place to call home, not just a room to rent

If you're interested, please email davidbowiescousin [at] gmail [dot] com and tell us a bit about yourself, what you are looking for in a house, and why you're excited about joining our home!
