I’m trying to live for my gay superheroes and there happy lives but Y'ALL KEEP FUCKING WITH ME!!! I Just read X-Men Blue #2 and surprise-fucking-surprise, Iceman’s boyfriend, who has appeared in only 4 comics, just ghosted Bobby. I assume we’re never gonna see him again. Y'ALL DO THIS EVERY FUCKING TIME!! America #1, she broke up with her girlfriend. The Ray, the new gay JLA member, had a boyfriend for ONE PAGE! 📢LET📢GAYS📢BE📢HAPPY📢Why is every single happy gay couple pushed to the sidelines? Midnighter and Apollo? Done. Wiccan and Hulkling? Gone. Rictor and Shatterstar? Blocked. Are Harvey and Ivy even still together or did you fuck with them too? And while we’re at it let bi and pan characters like Hellblazer and Deadpool actually have relationships with men. Mild flirting or using a man’s attraction to another man as a joke does not representation make. Just let queer people BE QUEER!!


VERY RARE: Boxing Legend, Sugar Ray Robinson tap dancing with dance legend, Gene Kelly!

In 1952, Robinson ditched his boxing gloves for a chance at entertainment. He toured with the Count Basie Orchestra and performed at the Apollo. In 1955, he traded the tap shoes in for another round of boxing.

Apollo of the golden rays
His arrows shooting down to Gaia
To bring us warmth and light
Growing our crops
And settling our fears of the dark
He is truly a wonderful god
For he is almost life itself 
He is the joy in a dancer’s step
The calming lullaby to sing an infant to sleep
Every breath we take
Every choice we make
He is there
Pulling us back
And shooting us forward
Guiding us to greatness
