Thousands march for LGBTI rights in Warsaw amid rising hostility
Campaigners say LGBTI freedoms are at their lowest point in staunchly Catholic country under nationalist Law and Justice government
By Alex Duval Smith

Thousands of people have marched with rainbow flags through Warsaw in a sign of defiance against a rising tide of extremism under Poland’s nationalist Law and Justice government.

Speeches at the start of the Equality parade – which began at the symbolic Palace of Culture and ended with a “beach party” across the Vistula river – warned of LGBTI freedoms being at their lowest point for two decades in the staunchly Catholic country. […]

Very few homophobic crimes are registered by the authorities – seven in 2014 and five in 2015. One of the reasons given for the low level of reporting is that LGBTI rights are not inscribed in law. A recent survey ranked Poland among countries offering LGBTI people the least legal protection in the EU.

Modder DrLilRobot recently put out a prototype of their Team Fortress 2 story mode. It’s a little rough around the edges, but given that TF2 is meant to be a multiplayer class-based shooter, they’ve contorted it in some damn impressive ways.

i just realized i haven’t seen it anywhere on tumblr so - sophie stone, a deaf actress, has been cast in series 9, playing a character called cass

LOOK! WE’RE GIFS! Someone teach me how to properly do the Tumblr GIF thing. The quality is horrendous.

Let me say this last thing to you: There’s two paths you take when you first put on that guitar or sing that song. And that’s “Do I wanna please the audience?” Or “Do I wanna push that audience’s buttons?” And in alternative music, which Alternative Press has been putting across for how many years now, you have to be able to push those buttons. You understand what those button pushes mean, but most of the world doesn’t. They just see angry people screaming about God knows what. Over 25 years ago, I made that decision that I was gonna push your buttons, or the people that came before you. And I like to think I’m receiving this in humility, because I am willing to push your buttons. Because I am willing to tell you to go fuck yourself. I didn’t start a fucking band to be anybody’s bitch; I started a band to kick your fucking head in. What I love about the bands that are coming up here tonight: That’s what they’re trying to do. They’re trying to kick your head in, and they should. You deserve it. You deserve your bands to push you, to make you question everything about you, because if they don’t do it, nobody else will—and you do understand that. So God bless you. Thank you very much.
