According to the song Seasons of Love from RENT, there are 525,600 minutes a year.

One line later, there are “525,000 Moments so dear”.

So, doing the math, we can glean that there are 600 moments which aren't so dear.

And I think I just used one of them by walking in on my boss who forgot to lock the bathroom stall.

  • someone:stories with queer/trans/PoC protagonists just don't perform as well because they're not relatable to everyone!
  • me:RENT is one of the most successful Broadway musicals ever and ran for 12 years after its debut in 1996, making it the 10th longest-running Broadway show of all time. Its core cast is made up of a Jew, a gay Black man and his transgender partner, a recovering drug addict, a Hispanic teenage sex worker, a lesbian, and a bisexual woman, all of whom are complaining and commiserating about how hard it is to be an oppressed person with no money but plenty of passion.

  • me:also capitalism is terrible and measuring success by monetary value is destructive and demeaning

My sister’s school has a little awards ceremony for the theatre kids and a category is “best villain in a musical” and AIDS from rent won so they had to redo the vote

nobody talks about rent enough

“modern media doesnt diversify gays enough. they’re all white m-”

“yeah but what about lesbia-”

“how about interracial couples-”

“what about non-gender-conforming-”

“what about bisexua-”

(anthony rapp, who plays mark, is bisexual too)

4/7 of the main cast are PoC and 4/7 also have AIDS

not to mention this movie is a MUSICAL I MEAN rip jonathan larson

IN CONCLUSION rent is a very important movie/musical

EDIT: after receiving some asks about it, ive looked it up, angel and collins are gay together! angel is a drag queen but goes by female pronouns. on imdb and other sources, it labels angel and collin’s relationship as gay.
  • other girls:pretty, blonde, well dressed, made up nicely
  • me:clad only in bubble wrap performing my famous lawn chair hand cuff dance to the sounds of ice tea being stirred
