Queer people came out in force on Saturday in front of Stonewall Inn to protest members of the Trump administration like Betsy Devos and Mike Pence

Despite Republican arguments that Trump is in favor of gay rights, Trump has expressed support for the First Amendment Defense Act, which lets businesses decline to serve people for religious reasons. The rally also drew attention to Trump’s cabinet as some of “the most anti-LGBT nominees and appointees in modern history.“

Remember that queer history is global. There is not one country in the world that has no queer community and no queer history. No matter what the laws may be queer people have always existed and we have always made history and never let anyone tell you differently.

Since my sister has publicly come out as Ace, let me tell you the best joke she made:

So, last November, I was driving to Denver with my sister, when she told me she identified as Asexual and felt that I should know.  I think she was expecting me to ask a bunch of weird questions because she literally pulled out notes, but I got to be “Nah, it’s all good and I’m glad you feel safe enough to some out.” and since there wasn’t much more to say, we went back to swearing at the shitty drivers on I-25.

Two exits later, it occurred to me that I hadn’t actually seen my sister for a year prior and might have forgotten to come out to her when I was doing it last March.  “Just to be clear- you know I’m Bi, right?”

“OH MY GOD.” she howls, making me almost plow into a pickup in surprise.  “YOU’RE EITHER AND I’M NEITHER.”  

I had to pull over I started laughing to hard.

I bring this up because 1. She just publicly came out and 2. SHE MADE US MATCHING SHIRTS FOR THE NEXT PRIDE.  I LOVE IT.

little kids can be gay!! let little girls be lesbians, let little boys be gay, let kids be bi. if a straight kid knows enough about themself to be straight, then lgbt kids know enough to be lgbt. don’t tell them it’s a phase, or that they’re too young to know, or that they just like the same gender in a friend way. it’s not something that’s pg-13 or taboo. support them. let kids be gay.

life? needs more butch lesbians
