Please watch this

Dirk Strider
If you’re out there
If you’re listening
I love you so so so much
And I hope you’re the happiest you can be

no offense but i judge the entirety of a les miserables production on how hot the actor playing enjolras is

Matthew Daddario characters you may ship with girls:

Gabriel ‘I’m not a doctor, I’m a doorman’ the doorman - sweet, kind and wise. Cute man. Quoted to say ‘princesses don’t know how to cook anyway’ when his girlfriend’s food is bad’. Took Naomi on a picnic. In a band. Into girls. Likes good music. Is respectful of Naomi’s privacy. Does sports. Sweats a lot. Over all very beautiful. Loved his mother and took over her job when she got sick. Possibly bi. I refuse to believe otherwise, Gabriel is 1000% bi. I’m convinced. Either way, he still likes girls so there you go!

Jeff 'I fucking made it’ the now very dead - College guy. Doesn’t like blood. Miserable looking but loves sex, especially when the five second sex scenes aren’t necessary. Swears like a bitch. Talks about girls masturbating. Likes to sit alone in sheds whilst his friends die and his girlfriend fucks his best friend. Also loves his car. Also dead. But hey, if it’s an au, that didn’t have to happen. Straight White College Boy tbh.

Possibly several others but I haven’t watched all the film’s he’s in yet.

Matthew Daddario characters you may not ship with girls:

Alec 'I can’t breathe’ Lightwood - gay. Kind of dating Magnus Bane a beautiful warlock. Gay. Didn’t marry Lydia because he realised just how gay he was. Literally walks away from his wedding to make out with a pretty warlock. Gay. Wants to fight Clary Fray for ruining his life. Gay. Gay AF. Super gay. Good archer. Jace Wayland’s brother. Gay. Struggles a lot. Has a lot going on. Gay.

Channing 'next to the grill’ (that was the only thing I remember him saying) no-last-name but let’s say Wozniak because that’s David’s last name - Kissed five guys in one day, all whilst being watched by his biological father. Ran up to a girl so I thought he was bi but then it turns out they were at a meeting for the Starbucks kids so yeah don’t thinks he’s bi. I mean he could be bi but if he were, we’d have seen him kiss a girl in that montage so like…  he’s probably gay. First one to hug his biological dad. Gay. Not monotonous and his dad was a little bit surprised. Wants to find his dad. Gay. Probably rich. Gay. Wears cute sweaters and cardigans. Gay. Super gay. Really cute reactions to babies.

I will bet actual real money that Jack ‘0% to 110%’ Zimmermann said “I love you” first. I bet he said it when he was in Madison. I bet it was in Bitty’s childhood kitchen. I bet Bitty was baking, singing along quietly to his iPod, hips swaying and Jack saw him. Gold and warm and like a dream, but better because he was there and real and Jack could reach out and touch him, could run his thumbs down Bittys cheeks and cup his hips and rub his cheek into Bitty’s hair.

I bet Jack was looking at bitty and thought 'god i love you’ and it’s not until bitty stares at him, silent, red faced that he realises that he said it out loud. I bet he didn’t even care that it was so early. That it was probably too soon. Because it’s true and he does. He loves bitty so fucking much.

I bet Suzanne was in the next room or maybe outside hanging laundry out so bitty couldn’t scream or throw himself at Jack or even yell at him because his hands are COVERED in pie filling and he can’t even kiss Jack now

I bet bitty wanted to cry. Hearing that Jack, his Boyfriend, loved him there. In that place where he’d spent so long thinking he’d never get to have this. Never have a boy that he loved who loved HIM and yet. There’s Jack smiling at him, his eyes so warm and soft saying 'I love you’ like it’s not the most important thing anyone’s ever said to him.

I bet that didn’t even kiss after. I bet they just looked at each other, blushing, and thought about how lucky they are.

People are people.
Hug them.

I hate when people take advantage of the lowest common denominator. So many people were scammed by the viral video “First Gay Hug” by The Gay Women Channel. So many people thought it was genuine. It wasn’t. I’ve been informed anonymously by someone who works with them that the entire video was a set up. They informed me just how terrible the people involved are.

I wish I could say more. Soon I’ll be able to. But there is a lot of darkness behind the intention of that video. They played everyone for fools. And it just about worked.

So my problem with the people bitching about the “First Gay Hug” video and its “soft gay politics” is that they’re assuming it’s meant to be some grand political statement, when it’s clearly intended to simply show how communication and letting one’s self get to know others can be an amazing, eye-opening experience which can help to change someone’s perceptions and misconceptions. Nowhere does the video say that it’s meant to end the “institution” of “straightness” or to downplay the hurt that homophobia can cause. I think our community needs to calm its proverbial tits and remember the homophobes in our lives who have been humbled and enlightened simply by our existence in their lives. That is the the point of this video.
