It’s 2am and the only thing I can think about is your hands and how each ones make me weak to the knees. I’m thinking about how lucky I would be if I could take one of them right now, but the only thing I can do is seeing them through a screen.
It’s 3am and I’m thinking about your room, yeah the room I saw you most of the time in. I’m thinking about your bed and how I would love to spend a night in it beside you. But the only thing I can do right now is seeing it through a screen.
It’s 4 in the morning and the only thing I can think about is your voice. Your gorgeous voice. I would give anything just to hear it, I mean really hear it, but that damn screen is the only thing I have right now.
It’s 5am and your eyes are the only things going through my mind. I think about how much I would love to see myself in those beautiful brown eyes, not your screen. But it’s the only thing I can do right now, seeing the black reflection of a simple screen in them.
It’s 6am and the only thing I can think about is how the curves of your lips make my heart beat faster and how much I want to kiss them. But the only thing I can do right now is seeing them through a screen.
It’s 7 in the morning and I miss you so fucking much. But I’m sure of one thing, I don’t miss the screen at all.
It’s early in the morning and I miss you. I don’t know what else to do, or what else to say. I just want you here in my arms.
My girlfriend is great. We’re always doing silly things and laughing in public places. We’re either getting smiles from people, or rude stares. If my girlfriend wants to see if she can throw the bread into our cart from halfway down the aisle, you’re damn right I’m gonna be her cheerleader. A couple of older people moved out of the way and watched her, with smiles on their faces, telling her to go for it. It’s refreshing seeing someone enjoying themselves while doing what we call a ‘chore’. I’m sick of watching humans like they’re robots. The world is your playground.
Last week we were replacing her car door window because it got smashed. We were listening to music and singing along. Our downstairs neighbor came outside and said 'I gotta ask this, but how the hell are you two so happy all the time? All I hear from you two is giggling’ and I just smiled like an idiot. Of course I have bad days and I’m not always happy, but she doesn’t see that. That’s how I want to be remembered.
Don’t forget you’re allowed to have fun. If people judge you, that’s their problem. And please, marry the girl that makes you feel like you’re alive.
I told you I missed you. You smiled at my words. What you didn’t know is it took me a lot to tell you that. I don’t want you to think I am weak without you. But reality is… I am weak without you. What you didn’t know is that I miss everything about you when you’re gone. I miss the way I always wake up before you and watch you sleep. I miss the way you wrap your arms around me and push me onto the bed. I miss the way you crack stupid jokes when we make out. I miss the way the light shines on your face and your eyes light up when you smile. I told you I missed you because it was true. I told you I missed you so you knew I loved you.
I read the stupidest anti-Stucky post ever. The whole premise was to try and convince everyone that Steve and Bucky are canonically straight. No shit, Sherlock. Most characters are canonically straight until otherwise proven, but that doesn’t mean we cannot ship them anyway.
Hello, my name is Madeline. I am a 5'6" female. I’m putting this out there because I am brutally single and am tired of being so. If you are a taller female also looking for a relationship that would be great. Also I am a young teenager so please no one over 16. Someone who is fairly mentally stable and I don’t have to reassure all the time would be great but I am not picky. Just a little more about me is I have a fairly sarcastic and dirty sense of humor. I’m a complete nerd and huge fan girl so if you don’t know the difference between Star Wars and Star Trek then get out. So yeah, thank you!
at the beginning of my job i totally would just say ‘i work in retail’ but i like go home with dirt perpetually under my hands from repotting and making miniature gardens and pricing plants and i strip and water and cut flowers and help design the shop and clean it and take orders in person and on the phone so when my boss called me a florist i got very excited because it made me feel important and i immediately adopted it as my title
The YouTube sensation and pop performer makes it his mission to change the musical landscape.
BY JASE PEEPLES SEPTEMBER 11 2015 6:00 AM EDT
Troye Sivan’s highly anticipated EP Wild is only hours away from its U.S. release when I meet with him on a balmy Thursday afternoon at a Beverly Hills coffee shop. With more than 3.5 million followers on YouTube, the singer’s latest effort had no trouble claiming the top spot on iTunes moments after it became available for preorder, but the success of his previous album, 2014’s TRXYE, set a high standard for the artist to surpass. Upon its debut, it was the number 1 album in 66 countries on iTunes and debuted at number 5 on the Billboard 200, and the music video for album’s lead single, “Happy Little Pill,” went on to rack up more than 17.5 million views.
These are statistics that might make any emerging artist antsy on the eve of a follow-up release, but the 20-year-old Australian-raised singer is quite at ease as he saunters into the shop, dressed in a plain maroon T-shirt and skinny jeans, with a satisfied smile splashed across his face. Moments after he joins me at a quiet corner table, he explains why competing with prior success is the furthest thing from his mind.
“Chart positions are very cool and awesome, but my biggest worry between the last EP and this one was that my music would change and grow, and I feel like that’s happened,” he says. “However, when I first set out to work on Wild, it was nerve-racking because I wasn’t sure what I was capable of — I’m still not sure — but as soon as I had that moment where I thought, That’s better than anything I’ve written before, the pressure got better and better because I felt at ease about writing something I was really proud of.”
He cocks his head thoughtfully to one side before adding, “I think the most important thing to me at this point in my career is being able to be honest in my songwriting — and these songs are about boys.”
It’s this kind of fearless honesty that has earned Sivan his legions of loyal followers and placed him on a short list of young out artists like Sam Smith, Shamir, and Years & Years front man Olly Alexander — LGBT trailblazers who refuse to believe the myth that a successful career can only be had by staying in the closet. In fact, Sivan says he feels it’s his responsibility to break new ground for the next generation.
“I have a platform and I should be using it to spread good if I can,” he says. “I know being able to see a gay artist who was living a happy, successful, and healthy life is something I would’ve appreciated seeing when I was 13 years old. The thought of being that for someone else is really awesome to me, and it motivates me to keep living my truth openly, honestly, and proudly.” For Sivan, living that truth means embracing subjects in his art that others have been afraid to tackle in the past. Writing love songs with male pronouns for his previous EP was the first step, but Sivan says he wanted to help move the needle for LGBT visibility even further this time around.
In his latest music video, for the title song “Wild,” he presents a story of first love between two very young boys.
“I feel like gay relationships are sexualized in the media and I just wanted to show a romantic, adorable, puppy love situation between two little boys because that’s something we never ever see,” he says. “We usually see stories when the teen is grown up, they’re 18, they’re going out, and maybe they’re promiscuous. That’s a part of gay culture — and it’s a fun part of gay culture — but there’s also those little baby crushes you have when you’re younger. I wanted to show that naïveté, that innocence, and that joy before someone tells you there’s something wrong with you.”
He stops and turns his gaze toward the steady stream of traffic rolling by on Melrose Avenue a few feet away and his voice softens before he continues.
“Unfortunately for me, I always felt in the back of my mind that there was something wrong with me. Even when I was a little kid, I remember suppressing any feelings I had towards other boys,” he says. “I was just aware I wasn’t supposed to be having those feelings from a very young age. And the boys in the music video, I only wish that I could’ve had that kind…”
He stops again, this time taking a deep breath before meeting my gaze with a warm smile. “Well, let’s just say I guess I’m a little jealous of the kids in the music video because they get to experience that — if only for a brief second, but they get to experience that relationship without any baggage.”
The subject is obviously one close to his heart, and Sivan says the video is the first installment of his “Blue Neighborhood Trilogy,” which will follow the story of these fictional boys as their relationship develops over years.
“To me the old ways of thinking about sexuality, these are all inevitable things that are going to change and my attitude is, let’s pretend as if they are changed,” he says. “Let’s pretend it’s not an issue to have two boys kissing in a music video or whatever it is. Let’s just do it and do it unapologetically because that is our honest experience. That is our truth.”
He adds, “Hopefully these videos will be the most viewed thing I’ve ever done in my life.”
With his latest music video garnering more than 2.5 million views in its first week and ringing endorsements of his new EP from famous fans like Taylor Swift, the singer appears to be well on his way to achieving that goal. Furthermore, his growing popularity is proof that young LGBT artists making music about their experiences can be power players in the same field as their straight counterparts.
Sivan teases that “a lot more music” from him will drop before the end of the year and he’ll be kicking off a tour “very soon” as well. Nevertheless, throughout it all he plans to stay focused on his primary mission: Creating a more inclusive music landscape for LGBT people.
“Over the years I’ve met a lot of fans who will whisper things in my ear like, ‘I’m bisexual and no one knows except for you now.’ Those are always awesome moments and I love that people feel like they can confide in me…but I’m fighting for a day when that won’t be necessary,” he says. “It’s my hope that somewhere, a young gay person who is struggling with who they are will see something like ‘Wild’ and say, ‘Maybe I do like boys, and that’s completely fine because there’s those kids in that music video — so I think I’m going to be just fine.’”
This Spring Break was absolutely incredible. Words cannot describe how amazing it was to be able to walk around holding Chris’s hand, and only get 1 or 2 weird looks. Everyone else was so incredibly indifferent and that’s so new. To be able to hold the hand of the man I love in Disneyworld was absolutely incredible. And the fact that it was Chris made it so much better. I love him so much. He’s the love of my life, and I couldn’t have asked for a better ride buddy. He encouraged me to go on some crazy rollercoasters at Universal! It was so much fun :)
When I get the pictures of us on the rides, I’ll post them :) boredpoetsociety
She believes everyone should have the right to say “I do.”
“White’s status as a gay icon dates to the mid-80’s popularity of The Golden Girls. “Gays love old ladies,” she says of the phenomenon, which saw fans from West Hollywood to New York City turn on their TVs between 9 and 9:30 on Saturday nights to watch the exploits of Rose & Co. “I don’t care who anybody sleeps with. If a couple has been together all that time—and there are gay relationships that are more solid than some heterosexual ones—I think it’s fine if they want to get married. I don’t know how people can get so anti-something. Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don’t worry about other people so much.”
