The Times They Are A Changin

A Flat Above A Little Bookshop In North Beach

Sirius: *discussing the Vietnam War* I’m just sick of it, Remus! Reg basically came back in a body bag! Who knows what could have happened if he was two feet in the wrong direction!

Remus: At least he’s home with us and getting better. 

We can be thankful for that.

Sirius: Pete didn’t.

Sirius: We need to do something! Stage a demonstration, rally together-




Remus: Sirius, we’re a bookshop-

A GAY bookshop.

People don’t come here to protest, they come here to read the stories of Walt Whitman.

Sirius: *loud whine*

Remus: Do you really want to?

Sirius: *muffled* Yes.

Remus: Fine, but not tonight. Let’s find a sitter for Harry first, It’s bad enough to have a bunch of stinky hippies yelling “fascist” and annoying our neighbors. 

Especially not around a toddler.

Sirius: He’s 7.

Remus: Is he?!

Sirius: Yes.

Remus: Damn, we’re old.


Remus: Yeah, we are.

Nickelodeon cartoon introduces channel's first gay married couple
'Time to make history!'

Nickelodeon has introduced its first ever gay married couple in popular animated series The Loud House.

In an attempt to show more LGBTI representation in its shows, this is the first male same-sex couple we’ve seen on the kids TV channel. 

RuPaul recently appeared in an episode of Bubble Guppies last year and it all started with Legend of Korra’s lesbian romance.

In the cartoon, 11-year-old Lincoln Loud is the only boy with 10 sisters trying to cope with the family chaos.

On the 20 July episode, Overnight Success, his best friend Clyde McBride comes over for a sleepover and it’s revealed to audiences he has two gay dads. 

Great to see this. Representation will always matter and make a difference for our community.
