If you say the “A” in LGBTQIA+ is for “Ally” I will personally paint the word “Asexual” on a baseball bat and beat you with it.
basically gay marriage should be legal but it’s basically the least pressing queer issue there is. coincidentally it’s the one that allies care most about. haha ok come back to me when you care about the rates of homelessness and violence and suicide among queer youth
Fuck the HRC! Fuck their mainstream/assimilated politics. Fuck their whitewashing of queer culture and conforming to the capitalist heteropatriarchal ‘norm’. Fuck their demotion of trans* rights in the queer struggle. Fuck them for dismissing queer POC issues while focusing all their attention to the gay white middle/upper class in return for donations. Fuck them for policing gender roles and identity and attempting to erase transvestism and drag from gay culture to make the community look more attractive to the heterosexual majority. Fuck the HRC for pretending to care for LGBTQ people when in reality, the L and G are the only acronyms they care to ‘help’. Fuck the HRC for refusing to recognize and help LGBTQ sex workers. Fuck the HRC for ignoring pressing LGBTQ issues like (youth) homelessness, high unemployment for transgender folks and unaffordable housing for elderly queers. Fuck the HRC for everything they’ve done to hurt queer liberation in return for the right to serve in the military and live a heteronormative lifestyle. Fuck the HRC!
bringing this back because of the new shirtstorm HRC campaign
File under: reasons to be wary of bandwagon Facebook campaigns without first critically examining the organization you’re supporting. Just saying.

#yeah i think straight ppl sometimes assume the world can be sorted into homophobes and queer allies #which no it isn’t that fucking simple #and it’s a really dangerous assumption to make b/c you can support equal marriage and have queer friends and queer relatives #and yet still perpetuate heteronormative ideals on a daily fucking basis (via electricskeptic)
Hello everyone, this is my good friend Logan. He is a tans male who could really use some help. His dream is to feel comfortable in his own body, and part of that would include getting top surgery. Unfortunately the procedure is not covered by insurance, and he has very little support from his family. He has started a campaign called Freeing Logan, and needs to raise 5,000 dollars in order to get the surgery. Any extra proceeds will be donated to Egale, a Canadian Human Rights Trust towards all LGBT people.
To Donate or learn more about Logan, the procedure or Egale you can go to this link:
Everyone wants to feel comfortable in their body, and you can help someone feel better in their own skin today! Even if you can’t donate it would mean a lot if you help spread the word!
Intersectionality described in 4 minutes.
Utterly brilliant. Just…goosebumps…
Damn. I don’t even have the words.
LGBT and Black oppression y’all….
This will take 4 minutes of your life and make you a better person
and then there are those of us who are both black and queer.
and then we fight for our right to speak for both sides.
Welp, I cried.
Beyond this being really cool, I just gotta say…
