An AU where young Keith, a Filipino-Korean, moves to the USA; on his first day at school, he refuses to talk, partly because he’s not exactly very sociable but mostly because he’s incredibly embarrassed about his English and lack of proficiency in it. O and shiro walks in

We can’t ever forget about Sylvia and Marsha.

When we talk about The Stonewall Uprising (aka The Stonewall Riots) many of us clamor to stake our claim on who started it all. Why bother? Prejudice started that uprising. In response, our community rose up and fought back against what was, until that night, an unstoppable force. People were beaten, glass broken, doors shattered, and to this day we are still fighting.

Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P Johnson  were described as “saints” by the people who knew them. Both struggled with homelessness, abuse, mental breakdowns, powerlessness, and exclusion.

To this day many disregard their role in history. Regardless, both worked tirelessly to improve the lives around them - whether it was housing homeless Trans youth, or simply cheering up friends in need.

We all struggle with things, especially now that events have taken, what looks like, turns for the worse.

But we don’t give up. We don’t retreat. We push forward.

There’s so much going on this month, this Pride. A lot to cry over, be thankful for, and celebrate. But this one is for you, ladies. <3
