PLEASE REBLOG IF YOU’RE AN ACTIVE BOOKLR SO I CAN FOLLOW YOU

I feel like I’m failing at booklr right now I’ve been like semi-inactive for more than a month because I haven’t had time, so i need more content to keep my queue filled for when I’m gone

also, I just love awesome booklrs

and potential friends

so please reblog!!

it really seems like (especially younger) lgbtq+ folks don’t quite understand the impact that aids had and continues to have on lgbtq+ communities.  i’ve seen a lot of posts out there trivializing the aids crisis, from the zombie apocalypse fantasy to comments like “a few gays died of aids.”  please please please read about this extremely important part of our collective history.  please please please educate yourself about how it is still a huge problem today.  please do all that before making flippant remarks about one of the most horrific tragedies in lgbtq+ history.

a good place to start doing this would be the film “how to survive a plague” which documents the beginnings of the aids crisis from the perspective of the lgbtq+ folks affected.

another excellent source of info (extremely extensive, but also very very long) is randy shilts’ book and the band played on.  it’s a chronicle of the aids crisis, focusing on the effects in communities across the us, as well as the deliberate ignorance of the epidemic shown by homophobic and racist officials in washington.

A few months ago, I was asked about creating a TWD Appreciation Week to go along with all the others. I decided I’d go ahead and do it, but wait until appreciation weeks died down and we were on hiatus.

We’re on hiatus, appreciation weeks have died down, and most of us in the fandom are out of school for the summer, so I thought this was a good time to do it.

TWD Apprecation Week is going to be from June 21 - June 27, the last full week of June. The themes are:

Day One (June 21) - Favorite Male Character(s)
Day Two (June 22) - Favorite Female Character(s)
Day Three (June 23) - Favorite Friendship(s)
Day Four (June 24) - Character(s) You Wish Were Still Alive
Day Five (June 25) - Favorite Villain(s)
Day Six (June 26) - Favorite Season(s)
Day Seven (June 27) - Anythang goes. (if you want, you can view the themes we didn’t use here and use one of those or do whatever you can come up with!!)

Please tag all your posts #twdweek and remember to only post your own original content!

Any questions can be directed to atlantafive.

Berkeley, has looked at the way the term is used by those who try to portray gays and lesbians as deviant. What is most telling about substituting it for gay or lesbian are the images that homosexual tends to activate in the brain, he said.

“Gay doesn’t use the word sex,” he said. “Lesbian doesn’t use the word sex. Homosexual does.”

“It also contains ‘homo,’ which is an old derogatory,” he added. “They want to have that idea there. They want to say this is not normal sex, this is not normal family, it’s going against God.”

The Decline and Fall of the ‘H’ Word

Why saying “Homosexual” only refers to sexual attraction is incredibly homophobic.
