Actress Patricia Arquette warns transgender people are 'under attack' in US

Actress Patricia Arquette warned transgender people were “under attack” in America as she was honoured by a leading gay-rights group.

The Oscar winner, whose transgender sister Alexis died in September, accepted GLAAD’s vanguard award in Beverly Hills, California, in recognition of her activist work.

On stage, Patricia said calls for a federal hate crime investigation into the “vicious” murders of eight transgender women of colour in 2017 had been met by “silence” from Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

“You don’t need to have transgender family members or a gay friend or a questioning kid for this to affect you,” she said.

“It doesn’t matter what colour or gender or faith you are, there’s so many marginalised groups right now under attack.

“When one of us is vulnerable, all of us are vulnerable.”

Patricia, 48, paid a tearful tribute to her sister Alexis, who she said knew she “couldn’t live a life that was a lie”.

“Whatever mark I have made in this life in activism will always pale in the light of Alexis’s bravery and in the light of the bravery of every trans-kid growing up in America,” she said.

“She wanted to move the world forward to a future where every trans-kid can live up to their full potential.

“When it wouldn’t be uncommon to have in your everyday life a doctor or a nurse or a cop or a real estate agent or a public official who is a transgender person.

“She wanted to help move the world forward to a time where trans-people were not fetishised but to a better tomorrow when they could be seen as complete, whole and equal human beings.”

Fighting back tears, Patricia praised the work of GLAAD for helping transgender children “see that they belong, that they are loved and that there is nothing wrong with them”.

Patricia won the Oscar for best supporting actress for her role in 2014 film Boyhood.

Her sister Alexis died from a heart attack in September, aged 47, having lived with HIV for 29 years.

The actress and activist, whose siblings also include actors David and Rosanna Arquette, transitioned to being a woman in 2006.

With the announcement that Senators Collins and Murkowski have flipped on DeVos, we’re now only ONE VOTE short of thwarting her nomination. But Republicans in the Senate know we’re close to scuttling DeVos, so they’re trying to rush her through today today or tomorrow. If you can’t get through tonight, please call tomorrow!

Police Throw Back Stones Hurled During Anti-Maduro Protests

Protesters in Caracas blocked off roads and clashed with security forces on Tuesday, April 5, during a demonstration against the Venezuelan Supreme Court’s decision on March 30 to strip power from the opposition-controlled National Assembly.

The move drew criticism and condemnation from Venezuelan opposition politicians and international governments alike and the Supreme Court has since withdrawn the ruling, but protests have continued.

You've been wishing really hard for your service dog. I hope you get one! Got a name picked out yet?

Thank you!! I may not get to pick the name depending on the training the dog will already have gone through (idk if it’s advised to change your dogs name after such intense training). But, if I do get to pick, I really like the names Amber and Sage! For whatever gender the dog is. :)

I need to raise another $3895 by the end of June to get a service dog! Could you help me out and donate even just a bit here? Literally even a dollar is a great contribution!

Hello! I'm asking this off anon so you don't think I'm that nazi person trying to ask it again! How would you go about becoming more sensitive to energy and how to see and detect it easier?

Thanks for asking off anon! I did block the person, so I don’t think they can send asks, but given that I’ve never blocked anyone but my abuser here, idk if blocked people can get through it somehow. 

Becoming sensitive to energy is all about developing your intuition! It’s one of our strongest senses, but it takes a sense of delicate patient and deeper awareness to clearly listen to. Fortunately, I have a blog right here that talks about 15 ways you can develop your intuition! Working on this will help you develop sensitivity to energy as a whole. :)

I actually don’t actively practice astral projection, so unfortunately I don’t have any good tips. What I do know is here at this post, though, so maybe something there will help! :)
