June 28, 1969 - The Stonewall Rebellion begins as queer street youth fight back against police in New York’s Greenwich Village.
Why have I never seen this? Margaret Cho is my new favorite <3

dying right now
Bye bye now

Straight people apparently aren’t invited to the party.
Even Google fucking gets it.
White Supremacists out here killing our kids, raping our women, imprisoning our men en masse
And racist White queer bitches like Dan Savage thinks I’m supposed to be worrying my queer Black ass off about “marriage equality” and the lingering effects of DADT? Oh, honey no. My people need me. We need each other. I will protect my own.
Number of times I’ve gotten this off some trans ally who’s decided they speak for me…
The Catholic church really does have fucked-up prioroties
Protecting paedophiles and blaming the victims = totally okay.
Letting same-sex couples exchange vows and express their love for one another = disgusting, vile.
Even though she has been the Minister for Equality for a while now it’s still relevant.
I understand that you recently put five Muslim men on trial and convicted three for passing out “homophobic leaflets.” They were tired under a new law that was passed in March of 2010 that intended to curb “hate-speech”, including homophobia, while protecting “Freedom of Speech.”
While I am, in no way, going to give value for or against the issues, I do find it interesting that this law has been applied to this group of men - who were calling for a change in law and not vigilantism - versus the English Defense League (EDL). Not only is the EDL filled with white-supremacists, but it seems that it is allowed to continue its racist, xenophobic, and Islamophobic diatribes publicly, but it looks as though the UK government is paying an estimate £800,000 out of its pocket to protect their planned March (along with the group Unite Against Fascism) in Leicestershire next week.
At the sentencing, the judge said to the men“You have been convicted of intending to stir up hatred. It follows that your intention was to do great harm in a peaceful community.”
These words would have carried more weight were they applied equally, and to everyone who “intends to stir up hatred.” From these (in)actions, I guess it’s not hatred when it’s directed towards ‘brown-immigrants’, huh? Only when it’s directed towards (presumably white) gays…

This is seriously the most annoying thing I hear people say, “oh well gays shove their sexuality all up in my face.” (next to “oh, when did you choose to be gay?”) Okay, see your boy/girlfriend over there? What if every time you walked out in public with them and showed even the tiniest bit of affection you get sneers and stares at the least, killed at the most?
What if you were surrounded by only gay couples? Movies. Tv. Music. And your stuck having to keep your relationship behind closed doors because every couple of minutes some asshole tells you to keep your “gross hetero” shit in the bedroom? How the fuck would you feel?
