please tell me which one is a trans soldier?
because of indescribable hatred and violence towards gay people in 1985, i was 19 before i came out to one friend and my mom. mom said “well…it’s going to be a sad an lonely life” and didn’t speak to me for around 3 weeks.
i said hi to him in the grocery aisle. he said hi back. there was that brief stare of “ok, what’s next?”
i was in awe of his beauty.
then he asked me if i’d ever heard about having my own amway business.
michael was a character on the show “good times”. over time, michael kept trying to teach black history, culture, etc. it was brilliant when he replaced with black jesus. basically, he stopped giving a fuk and educating black (and white) people about his knowledge or feelings. thankfully, he balanced out jj’s goofy ass. 🙂
why don’t we, the lgtbq community, have our own “michael”?
i feel sorry for my mom, in that she didn’t get a “stereotypically gay” son. i didn’t know i was gay yet (til 19) and all i cared about was playing sports and watching tv. she’d ask me which outfit looked best and i just didn’t know. poor thing never got the benefits package.
religious zealots always say that gay people cause hurricanes, floods, disasters of all kinds…but that doesn’t make sense to me. i can’t even get my cat to stay off the kitchen counters.
a fairly unknown, yet extremely famous, gay/black icon. read about her heroic activism here.
people actually thought this would harm their kids:
on world’s aids day, today, i say fuk bush.
“They say to only speak good of the dead. He’s dead? Good.”
walk a mile in my shoes for a second: do you know what it’s like to walk into your local bar and 43% aren’t there? and not because they were at a concert, but because they were all sick, dying, or dead? 43% of my close friends and acquaintances gone forever. most didn’t even get an obituary because the family was so embarrassed. this is not hyperbole, btw.
that pos was responsible for killing millions of lgbtq (and straight) people. about 43% killed, due to him and his minions (basically) saying that we “deserved it” and would not fund research or even publicly say the words hiv or aids. it was a “gay disease”. instead he’d turn over the “issue” to religious people and we’d have to hear 24/7 about god and god’s punishment..blah, blah, blah. that was his decree of cowardice.
so, yes…fuk bush. i don’t mourn his death, i celebrate it.
(feel free to leave a comment whether you agree/understand or not)
because he's gay, his parents disowned him at age 18. and, in the true fashion of loving christians and asshole parenting, they did it on his birthday. "happy birthday, son! now get the fuck out because we hate you and never want to see you ever again!" they haven't talked to him for almost 3 years, at the time of this post.
con te partiro is one of my favorite songs.
I replaced every instance of the word "God" in the Bible with the words "Gay People".
