As a queer person of color, I have been told all my life that I will never play the romantic lead, and that’s fucked up. When they say that, what they’re actually telling you is that your love story doesn’t exist.
These two guys are honestly so cool. They are great inspirations and just amazing people in general. Thank you @dylanmarron and @CecilBaldwinIII for starting this hashtag. Your two truly are amazing people. I love you!
But here’s a little secret for you: no one is ever the same thing again after anything. You are never the same twice and much of your unhappiness comes from trying to pretend that you are. Accept that you are different each day and do so joyfully, recognizing it for the gift it is.
Welcome to Night Vale, Episode 75 - Through the Narrow Place
Do you have questions about Every Single Word, my tumblr/video series that edits popular films down to only the words spoken by People of Color? Do you want to know what it’s like behind the scenes of Welcome to Night Vale? Are you curious about the New York Neo-Futurists? Wanna know what it’s like to be ½ of Cecilos? Growing up queer? Biracial? What I eat for breakfast? How I feel about One Direction taking a break? (SPOILER: working through it).
Join me tomorrow and we’ll talk about all this stuff and more.
When I first listened to Condos I fell in love with this monologue. I loved the words, the delivery, everything. It’s perfectly imperfect. So I made a door poster thingy - obviously not for sale or anything, just an experiment in designing something fueled by my love of Carlos the Scientist and this podcast.
