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.
Look lads, all I’m saying is: if you claim to like both pizza and sushi but we stay catching you ordering pizza week after week, month after month, people are gonna ask questions and wonder about the validity of your bisexuality. I’m not out here saying you’re a ~fake~ or anything like that, I’m just sayin tho
