Conversation with my very religious mother
  • Me:did you know that it is a sin to where that shirt and you could go to hell?
  • Mom:
  • Me:I mean it has mixed fabrics.
  • Me:According to the bible, that's a sin.
  • Mom:show me where it says that
  • Me:levictus 19:19
  • "'Keep my decrees.
  • “‘Do not mate different kinds of animals.
  • “‘Do not plant your field with two kinds of seed.
  • “‘Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.
  • Mom:
  • Mom:
  • Mom:well just because it says that doesn't mean you can say its a sin and we'll go to hell
  • Me:so why are people doing that with homosexuality

I was watching the Stonewall Uprising documentary and the name Marsha P. Johnson was not mentioned once considering she was a leader of the 1969 Stonewall Riots. So I felt like posting these Polaroids of her taken by Andy Warhol to show remembrance of her as the significant trailblazer that she was in making the Stonewall Riots happen. It’ll be 46 years since the riots on June the 28th and 45 years since the first gay pride march took place in New York City as a result of the Stonewall Riots. Thank you Marsha. RIP. 

Repeat after me:

You can be gay and christian.
You can be gay and Christian. 
You can be gay and Christian. 

TEHRAN, IRAN - Gay Iranian youth drink and smoke marijuana during an illegal party inside a house in Tehran, Iran. Homosexuality is illegal in the Islamic Republic, punishable by lashing or death. In 2006, two gay teenagers were executed in a high profile hanging in the northeastern city of Mashad, which sparked international condemnation. When the photojournalist working on this story asked his subjects if revealing their identities would endanger them, he was told that they “were already at the mercy of the government, and it was better for the outside world to know who we are”.

A historic nuclear deal has caused much speculation about what changes it may bring to Iran. As revealed in these photos, how Iran appears on the surface is often in striking contrast to what happens at the boundaries of official sanction.  See more from ‘Inside Iran.’ Photos by Getty Images Reportage.

My dad wanted me to Photoshop a Confederate flag with the Gay Pride flag colors as a kind of “screw you” to the Confederates, and I got a little carried away and created the “Joke’s on the Confederates” Series of flags.

First, the Gay Pride Flag

Then Bi Pride:

Then Ace Pride:

And finally, Pan Pride:
