Reminder for all my lgbt+ friends

The holidays are coming up (whatever you may celebrate) and I want you to know that if you are out of the closet and not accepted or you are in the closet and uncomfortable with pronouns or homophobic/transphobic/etc. You are valid. Your feelings are valid and you are loved and cared about. If any of you need some distraction or something to get through these times I’m here and you can always message me. I care.

DALLAS <3

Hey Allllllll,

Today the tour stops in Dallas, TX. LGBTQ history runs deep in Dallas, and The Dallas Way keeps great record of it. Founded in 2011, the organization’s mission is to compile the untold stories of local LGBTQ community members. The Dallas Way has partnered with the University of North Texas to create a digital exhibit chronicling the people, issues, and events that were important to the LGBTQ community in this area.

On the #SuburbiaTour we are focusing on LGBTQ-inclusive curriculum in schools. The work that these two organizations are doing is immensely important. If LGBTQ history isn’t made available to the public, it will be like these people never existed. If LGBTQ kids grow up seeing people they identify with making a difference and shaping the world in which they live, they will know that they too, can make an impact in the world.

The organization we are working with tonight is The Resource Center. The Resource Center’s Youth First program is one of the only programs in the area specifically focused on the needs of LGBTQ youth. With approximately 15,000 LGBTQ youth living in North Texas, these services are vital in helping them with issues they face with their family members, peers, and fellow students. Youth First serves those ages 12-18, helping them strengthen healthy relationships, and build the confidence they need to lead an authentic life.

Want a ticket upgrade? We’re taking donations of basic necessities that are often taken for granted. We are asking that you bring a new stick of deodorant to donate at the show. Bring at least one to be entered in a raffle for a ticket upgrade.

Thanks ya’ll and see u tonight!!!

It’s a terrifying time for minorities, and with Donald Trump as president, he has planned to add some terrifying people to his administration. These people are particularly terrifying for LGBTQ+ members and this is why:

As you know, Mike Pence is planning on taking Chris Christie position in office. Mike Pence has said many awful things about LGBTQ members, some stuff along the lines of how conversion therapy should be implemented on the youth, he thinks marriage equality would lead to societal collapse, and he called homosexuality a choice, and also he also said that stopping gays isn’t biased, it’s him compelling Gods idea. He’s also a murder for the people of Indiana, and has killed many people who had AIDS by taking away fundings for their healthcare.

Another one trump wants to bring into his administration is Ben Carson as we all know is fucking insane. He compared homosexuality to pedophilia and incest.

Another monster is Newt Gingrich and he has called being gay fascist.

Then we have Ken Blackwell who has compared homosexuality to arson and kleptomania. He’s said, and I quote, “well, the fact is, you can choose to restrain that compulsion and so I think in fact you don’t have to give into the compulsion to be homosexual. I think that’s been proven in case after case after case. I believe homosexuality is a compulsion that can be contained, repressed, or changed. That is what I’m saying in the clearest of terms.”

ALSO let’s point out the fact that the fucking president has met with religious extremists and made promises to them like putting justice on the Supreme Court to overturn marriage equality. He has 20 candidates that he wants in the Supreme Court that agree with his ideas like this. He promised that he would sign the FADA which would allow for discrimination against LGBTQ people by government employees and others. And the anti-LGBTQ organization for marriage has sent him a plan to overturn marriage equality.

This is a scary time. I can only hope that the electoral college reconsider this nomination and vote Hillary into office. Until then, we protest. Keep protesting. Let’s show our government that we won’t stand by this. Fight back. Stand up. Stay educated.

And for us minorities, this is all our fight. We stick together.

This blog retains its zero-tolerance stance on homophobia and transphobia. You get to control what kind of content you see on this website, and as long as you are following me I will never knowingly feature content from homophobic and/or transphobic creators. 

My fellow LGBTQ community members deserve that much.

Election Aftermath

Hi, I just wanted to take a quick moment and talk to all my followers and lgbtq+ as well as people of color. Yes I understand this election couldn’t have gone worse. Yes I understand that you are very scared. You have the right to be scared. I’m scared. Trump will try to take our rights away, make it illegal to marry, fund conversion therapy, and strip the rights of transgender people. We have done it before. We will fight back. Peacefully. Stick together, and unless you are 100% sure about the thoughts of those around you, it may not be the best time to come out. Although the congress may not allow the re-illegalization of gay marriage, trump is going to push. We got to push back. I love you all, please stay safe, and know that my inbox is always open if you want to talk. 💞

Nearly every celeb bromance at least one idol says “isn’t that a place for couples?” “Is it okay just the two of us?” “Isn’t this a little strange?” BUT WHEN JAEBUM SAYS IT IT’S A GOD DAMN UPROAR. Shut. Up. We all know how shy he is and how embarrassed he gets, we could have all guessed he’d respond that way, not because he’s homophobic but because his friend is making him go on a date while being recorded!!!!

He literally went on a date with our own Youngjae, walked around the park holding hands, laid in a tent together, and was cute as heck. He isn’t super touchy all the time like Jackson, but when you do see skinships with the members it’s so meaningful and heartfelt, he’s hung out with known lgbtq+ members and had no problem with it. He isn’t homophobic, had he been on ‘So We Got Married’ the whole time he would have been just as embarrassed and asking if it was really okay for them to do these things so sit down and shut up about this.

I keep telling myself that while the president does have power, he does not have enough to reverse everything. But that is not why I’m scared.

I’m scared of the majority that elected a racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, misogynistic, orange blob of hate to be the president. I’m scared because that means that those people either are those same things, or they are okay with someone like that running our government, representing us to the world. I’m scared because the majority will now think it’s okay to turn on the minority. I’m scared for females, for lgbtq+ members, muslims, african americans, latina’s… anyone who is not a cis, white, heterosexual male. Respect for human beings that fall into those categories are already at all time lows, and now I’m scared it’s going to be worse.

It’s the people who voted this predator into office that are the biggest threat.

my brother has always been ace AND aro and my dad has always given him shit for it, and he’s always gotten looks for it. it’s mainly “you’ll like girls one day” and “im just worried you’re gay” from my father. call that what you will, but it sounds like ace/aro people get shit too. and i havent come out yet, but when i do, im sure it won’t be much worse then what my brother is dealing with.

A shout out

This is a shout out to all those LGBTQ+ POC members who are not only suffering from bullying of their sexual preference and race, but are also suffering from mental illnesses. You matter, you will get there where you want to be soon enough. We will get through this together.

FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT ACE PEOPLE ARE IN THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY

FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT ARO PEOPLE ARE IN THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY

FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT CISGENDER ACES ARE IN THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY

FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT HETEROSEXUAL AROS ARE IN THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY

FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT YOU CAN BE CISGENDER AND HETEROSEXUAL AND STILL BE AROMANTIC

FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT YOU CAN BE CISGENDER AND HETERO-ROMANTIC AND BE ASEXUAL

FRIENDLY FUCKING REMINDER THAT THE A IN LGBTQIA COMMUNITY, SINCE WE ALL WANT TO BE POLITICALLY CORRECT, STANDS FOR ASEXUAL, AROMANTIC AND AGENDER

FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT ASEXUAL AND AROMANTIC ARE VALID, AND YOU’RE A SHITTY ALLY/LGBTQ MEMBER IF YOU DON’T ACCEPT THEM 

I am alone in a sea of trump supporters. My piece of shit father is a Trump fan. Two of my closest ‘friends’ are trump fans. Most of my school is filled with trump fans. He won my states vote.

How the hell don’t they get it? Until you have been physically or sexually abused, until you have felt this fear and uncertainty and pain, until you have been to the utter hell that this hefty bag of Cheeto dust wants to send all women and immigrants and LGBTQ+ members, do not for one fucking second think you have the authority to tell me Trump is a good man. Do not tell me to accept this. I didn’t choose Hillary because i was 100% on board with her and her policies, or because she was even a good person. I chose her because I cannot live in a country where people continue to choose abusers over victims, men’s power over women’s lives, xenophobia and racism over a family’s hope, war over peace.

I cannot fucking breathe.

I’m so scared, I’m so sorry. All muslims, immigrants, women, disabled, all people of color and members of LGBTQ+ please be safe. I love you. 

please look after all poc these days, all members of lgbtq+, hijabi girls, all muslim people, please be safe, please help keep them safe, don’t leave them alone in this, this is so incredibly scary, im so sorry this happened, you all matter, don’t forget this, try to distract yourselves, my messages are open and l be as active as possible today, please talk to me if you need to vent, i love you, you are so important, so valuable, i’m so sorry you have to be afraid to be who you are because he won, please do not let a disgusting pig like him define your worth, you are gold, you are so incredibly important, for now, please try to stay safe darling
