Jasper Jordan is important representation for metal illness

Clarke Griffin is important representation, because she learned she had to overcome her pain, not run from it, and because she is also a bisexual female leader 

Raven Reyes is important representation of a physically disabled woman, who never let a heart murmur or a leg brace stop her from saving the freaking world.

Bellamy Blake is important representation because he shows that you can try to do the right thing after realizing your mistakes

Monty Green is important representation for not letting someone emotionally abuse you just because you care deeply about them

Octavia Blake is important representation for learning how to grow from your past to embrace you future with strength and courage, never letting anything keep you down and out

Emori is important representation of a person with a defect, who hid it all her life, before coming to accept and love her body for what it is

Bryan and Nathan Miller are important representations of a monogamous, interracial relationship

Luna is important representation for not doing something you don’t believe in, even though everyone is pressuring you to

Marcus Kane is important representation for trying to get two different cultures to coexist peacefully, while also respecting that culture’s traditions and beliefs

John Murphy is important representation of a male rape victim, and of never giving up, even if it means leaving your familiar surroundings to find where you belong.

I’m not saying this show doesn’t play with your emotions, because it does, and good TV shows always do, but that doesn’t mean the characters don’t mean something

You wanna talk about a good show? Let's talk about Dance Academy.

It’s an Australian teen-centric show that’s on Netflix. It’s also the most true to life and honest show I’ve seen. Throughout it, it addresses issues such as body issues, eating disorders, rape/consent, underage alcohol consumption, being prepared for sex, relationships, cheating, sexuality crises, family expectations, family issues, religious obligation, cancer, injuries, death of friends and the subsequent grief, and so much more. I went into watching this program thinking it would be a shallow, average teenage program about dancing, but it’s so much more than that. I have learnt so much and I encourage you to watch it if you haven’t, it’s awesome! (Plus the cast is really hot)

Beautiful drum circle! Everything about this is beautiful. See, people want to act like our protests aren’t peaceful but this looks pretty peaceful to me.

Happy #SpiritDay.  

This past weekend, on #NationalComingOutDay, I released this video in hopes it would spread a message that yes, we’re all different, but at the end of the day, we are all humans.  Whether you’re lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, or an ally, be proud of who you are.
