pulse shooting

exactly one year ago today was the shooting at pulse… and i know no one cares anymore and only like 3 people might see this but i’m too scared to voice this anywhere people i know irl will see it
when i found out, i was sitting at my grandma’s breakfast room table. we were looking at places for our next family reunion. i opened the computer to look at cabins… and as google loaded, i saw the news link… “more than 50 injured in mass shooting in orlando.”
my mom asked me what was taking so long, but i couldn’t answer. i was in so much shock because of what had happened… i couldn’t speak, or even move. once i had gotten over the initial shock, i helped to research cabins, but it wasn’t the only thing on my mind. this horrible thing had happened and i knew nothing. i opened articles, read what had happened. it was a gay night club on latinx night. this wasn’t just a mass shooting. it was a mass shooting done with the intent of being a hate crime. we went throughout the rest of the day, the younger ones wondering why some of the flags were being flown at half mast and some weren’t, and the older ones explaining that it was nothing for them to worry about. hell, i was told it was nothing for me to worry about. i was forced to research it and keep myself updated. 34 injured, 26 dead. i asked my grandma what she felt about what had happened. she told me that if she were there, she would have stopped the man or died trying. i asked her husband, he said he would stop the man and protect my grandmother or die trying. 42 injured, 35 dead. I asked my other grandfather what he felt. he said if he would’ve been there, he might not have stopped him. to this day i’m not sure how to feel about that. 48 injured, 38 dead. i lay in bed that evening, trying to make sense of why this event is affecting me at this level. is it because i knew what happened soon after it happened? is it because i’m part of the lgbt+ community? that day was the first time it really seemed like a community to me. as i try to learn more, i find that there was a near-bombing at san francisco pride the day before. my friend was there. she could’ve been… gone. 53 injured, 49 dead. the gunman shot himself after shooting all the others. 53 injured, 49 dead. he could never count in the casualties, the casualties are his fault in the first place. 53 injured, 49 dead. a week later i read a buzzfeed article that gives the audio of his phone call to the police. he claims to worship allah and be part of isis. i’m not muslim, but i’m almost certain there’s something in their holy book about peace. 53 injured, 49 dead.
today i read an article about kaliesha andino, who was injured there. she is still struggling, fighting to recover.
omar mateen, if you’re somehow reading this from hell, are you happy? is this what you wanted to accomplish? was it worth it?
i’m going to end this with the names of those who died. that is the only appropriate way to end it, i think.

VANITY FAIR’s coverage of the Avengers’ OUR TOWN reading in Atlanta:

The Avengers, and friends, assembled in Atlanta on Monday night, though without their usual armor, shields, and superpowers. The event, dreamed up by Scarlett Johansson, brought together some of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s biggest stars—all in town filming Avengers: Infinity War at Atlanta’s Pinewood Studios—for a stage reading of Thornton Wilder’s theater classic Our Town, a benefit for hurricane relief in Puerto Rico.

As he is on screen as Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr. was front and center as the play’s Stage Manager, serving as the audience’s guide to the world of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, in the early 20th century. It was Johansson, though, who introduced the evening, having come up with the idea for the reading in partnership with the John Gore Organization, recruited her co-stars, and persuaded Disney to foot the bill for the minimal set design. “Our Town is almost this kind of warrior cry to remind us of the fragility of life,” Johansson told the crowd. “It reminds us to be present and to live moment to moment with one another and to look at each other, to really see one another. It’s about community, helping other people, being compassionate, reaching across lines to lift somebody out of a tragic situation. It’s all about human connectivity, and theater is all about human connectivity.”

As the play began, the cast, who have been making movies together for nearly a decade now, seemed committed to a straight reading. The antics began quickly, though, with Chris Evans, who played Mr. Webb, the father to Johansson’s Emily. When Evans missed a cue and had to be prompted by the rest of the company, it turned out he was missing page 12 of his script. “As the Stage Manager, I couldn’t have had anything to do with that,” quipped Downey Jr., calling to mind the rivalry of Iron Man and Captain America in the Marvel movies.

There was another dueling dynamic between Jeremy Renner (a.k.a. Hawkeye), reading as young George Gibbs, and Mark Ruffalo (a.k.a. Hulk), as his father, Dr. Gibbs. When asked for his age, Renner answered as scripted, “I’m 16, almost 17,” then mockingly added an impromptu address of “Dad!” to stress the absurdity of a man not knowing how old his son is. Renner then made faces whenever Ruffalo had something to say about George. He also commented on his own character’s line about watching Emily through her window at night, joking, “There’s nothing creepy about that.”

Other dated bits of dialogue from Our Town elicited chuckles from the crowd. If there were many Thornton Wilder fanboys in attendance, they weren’t as evident as the Marvel faithful with their Captain America shield T-shirts and, in at least one case, Iron Man armor.

Brittany Inge received individual cheers for her more sincerely expressive performance as George’s mother. The other M.C.U. players included Frank Grillo and Maximiliano Hernandez, who respectively portray the villain Crossbones and S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Agent Sitwell in the franchise. There were a handful of non-Marvel cast members too, including local Atlanta actress Tess Malis Kincaid, who earned a number of laughs while reading the part of Mrs. Webb.

Renner continued to provide most of the night’s improvisation, regularly ad-libbing and gesturing for the amusement of the audience. He even blurted out “shit” at one point, and during the wedding scene in Act II, when George is asked if he takes Emily to be his bride, he shouted, “Hell yes!” In another moment, when Evans as Mr. Webb asked George how he was doing, Renner replied, teasingly, “Fine, fine, fine … I have page 12.”

George’s part is dialogue-free in the third act, so Renner’s clowning ceased as Johansson took the play into its sentimental conclusion. She appeared to cry her way through Emily’s famous posthumous monologue about the under-appreciated beauty of the world, giving what was truly one of her best performances in years. Those final moments, concluded with Downey Jr.’s final narration, brought a sober reminder of why everyone was there: to provide aid to people affected by a disaster.

The event, which included a post-reading meet-and-greet with the cast, raised $500,000 for the Hurricane Maria Community Relief & Recovery Fund at the Center for Popular Democracy.

CORRECTION: Though Danai Gurira had been scheduled to play George’s mother in the November 7 stage reading, she was unable to attend. The role was played by Brittany Inge. The credit has been updated accordingly.

these are their names. these are the people who were MURDERED just because of who they love.

this horrific incident has shaken many people, and torn apart families. and you know what? this isn’t the only instance. people are murdered for being queer FAR too often. the statistic of people being attacked in a lgbt hate crime has grown immensely just in the last 10 years alone. suicide rates are devastatingly high.
imagine having to live in fear every single day of your life.
please, especially this pride month, show your support to your queer friends. be accepting. be KIND. above all, #lovewins.

Avengers Cast Raises $500,000 for Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief
Earth's mightiest actors came together in Atlanta to raise $500,000 for Hurricane Maria relief efforts.

Earth’s Mightiest Heroes came together to raise an impressive $500,000 for Puerto Rico following the destruction caused by Hurricane Maria back in September. 

Scarlett Johansson, along with fellow Avengers Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Robert Downey Jr. and fellow Marvel Cinematic Universe cast members Frank Grillo and Maximiliano Hernandez partnered with the John Gore Organization for a benefit reading of Thornton Wilder’s classic play Our Town yesterday at Atlanta’s Fox Theater. The star-studded event, which was organized by Johansson, was directed by Kenny Leon and managed to raise $500,000 with over 3,500 tickets sold.

“We are all deeply touched by the outpouring of generosity and support from the local community,” Johansson said. “We knew we could count on you, Atlanta!”

Funds from the benefit will be used for immediate relief, recovery and rebuilding in Puerto Rico for low-income communities hit hardest by the storm. Johansson and her fellow Avengers are currently in Atlanta working on the two-part Avengers: Infinity War.

Debuting in theaters on May 4, 2018, Avengers: Infinity War is a production of Marvel Studios directed by Joe and Anthony Russo starring Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie.

Here you go. You should read these.

1. Give me liberty! by Frank Miller and Dave Gibbons.

2. Love and rockets - Locas by Jamie Hernandez

3. Tank Girl! by Alan Martin and Jamie Hewlett (thanks for the correction @tankxgirl :>)

4. Buffy the vampire slayer by Joss Whedon.

Also, if you happen to know about any other badass lady heroes who’s story does not revolve around some random doode and their awkward love life, please I’d love to know about it. I’m always on the hunt for good comics, but I’m so tired of machomachodudes in tights clothes.
