more lesbian jily!!!!! listen to this: butch quidditch lesbians

  • “evans, you and potter are on the same team, please refrain from aiming bludgers at her”
  • lily to herself: “but she’s so hot what am i supposed to do” lily out loud: “she asked me to beat it, so i did :)”
  • the locker room is. tense
  • james to herself: “if we shower together ppl are gonna know and i’d rather die” james out loud: “can’t shower with anyone, i don’t wanna cause injuries with my hot body ;)”
  • lily honestly thinks that’s a fair argument but she rolls her eyes with the rest of the team 
  • when they win the quidditch cup the tension finally breaks
  • the team all slap each other’s backs in congratulations and when james and lily do they just don’t separate again
  • everyone cheers and james lets go of lily’s waist to give them the finger
  • lily doesn’t know if she’s more high on quidditch or on warm gay feelings but she just laughs against james’ mouth
  • they go on to be an iconic quidditch power couple and get tons of mail from young lesbians who look up to them
  • they devote every sunday to responding to all of them
  • “gotta nurture the baby gays so they grow up to be strong, sapphic and self-confident” james nods importantly, her glasses way down her nose like a caricature of a sexy librarian
  • lily, looking up from drawing nipples on the bludgers their quidditch stationery has: “don’t forget sassy”
  • a toy broomstick is the obvious gift for their baby’s first birthday
  • naturally, their adopted child inherits the sass

in conclusion, sometimes a family is three sass monsters who love quidditch and being gay. the end

The list of demands read aloud by Bamby Salcedo at the Creating Change conference. Written text below.

Trans People of Color: State of Emergency

Purpose: To bring awareness and attention to the issues of structural violence that continues to kill trans people, particularly trans women of color.

Statement: Brothers and sisters in our community continue to lose their lives to structural, institutional, physical, and relationship violence. We, the trans community, invite the LGBQ and allied institutions at this conference to join us in putting an end to the violence that our community has experienced for many years. We are demanding intentional, meaningful investment in our community’s efforts to eradicate this epidemic.

We demand:

  • Funders and organizations, especially LGBT foundations and grantors to intentionally invest in the Trans Community
  • Support and acknowledge trans leadership to build and foster strength in our power.
  • Meaningful equity of resources in order to eradicate the economic and health crisis that our brothers and sisters face.
  • LGBT and ally organizations to hire trans people in leadership positions. We demand for these organizations to be intentionally inclusive and truly provide leadership opportunities for the trans community. If you serve us, you need to include us.
  • Investments in new and up & coming trans specific organizations and support their work in underserved areas.
  • Big-tent and anchor organizations to leverage their access to policy makers and funders and use their privilege to support trans-led efforts in eradicating the ongoing structural violence that our community faces

He is half-way through the automatic gesture—taking the cup—when the phrasing dawns on both of them and John freezes, his fingertips touching Sherlock’s around the ceramic circumference that is suddenly, maddeningly, too small. John doesn’t ever think of this; the uncanny ability they usually have, despite years of occupying the same cramped spaces, to avoid touching. John doesn’t ever think of this; his own uncanny ability to remember, acutely and without trying, every single time that they actually have: The average human memory is only sixty-two percent accurate on recall are you alright punch me in the face we’re going to need to cooperate let me by he’s my friend.

There’s nothing for it; you’ll need to learn how to dance.

To the best of times, John.

“It seemed they had always been, and would always be, friends. Time could change much but not that. They were two halves of a whole, sharing a single spirit. It was the spirit of friendship and it was alive and well.”
