“Gilman Street was the best education I got. Walking through that door the first thing I saw was a sign saying ‘No Sexism, No Racism, No Homophobia’, and I think that’s had an impact on me for the rest of my life,” he recalls. 

“Now when people come to our shows the main thing is I want them to feel like they’re in a safe space. If you’re gay, straight, white, black, brown, transgender, if there’s one place you feel you can go to it’s a Green Day gig.”

(½) “My mom had breast cancer and she beat it, but then she came down with bone cancer. That’s when she decided to let go. We all had to get on the same page with her. In a weird way, it’s kind of fine though. I was with her the whole time. She was herself up until when she started dying. If anything, she taught me how to die gracefully. She taught me how to transition out. That was her last lesson for me. I told her that I loved her everyday. I miss her all the time, but I don’t regret not being there or not saying anything when I had the chance. After she passed away, the government gave my family all this money. My brother and sisters were trippin’, but I just wanted to come back to DC to finish high school and I did.”

My mom thinks being less racist is a privilege of being educated, and that we can't expect poor people to be anything but stupid hate machines. What the hell do I say to that? "People different from us are still people" is like kindergarten, Sesame Street level education material.

Yeah, the idea that not being a complete piece if shit requires, like, education or something is ducking ridiculous and offensive, especially to the many, many, many poor folks who manage this INCREDIBLY EASY task.

(2/2) “The day I graduated high school was the happiest day of my life. My mom had passed away the summer before my senior year and I was living in Baltimore at the time. Nobody knew I was living by myself. I rented a room in a house in Maryland. I was seventeen years old at the time. I was spending all the government money to pay for rent and go to school. My father was part of the PTA, but no one knew that I wasn’t actually living with him. He had kicked me out. It was the best day when I graduated. I’d finally made it. I don’t believe anyone was there in the crowd for me, but I’d done it for myself. It was really hard getting to that point. Graduating high school was the biggest milestone I’ve reached.”

Also like im getting rly bored & actively upset by the idea that the most mediocre steps toward acceptance & love n stuff is celebrated?? like,, cool u would never call someone a gay slur but also like u don’t wanna see them on television & u don’t wanna see them hold hands on the street & u don’t wanna educate urself abt sexuality & gender & u don’t wanna stop making ur “”“funny”“”“ gay jokes & u think its a huge insult for ppl to think ur gay but sure u don’t hate the gays that’s cool
