Tamala Jones comes out… (x)
okay my understanding of this after watching the video is that this person is straight and the campaign is aimed at straight people (encouraging them to “come out in support” of the lgbt community)
no no no no no nO NO NO
coming out is OURS
coming out, as a phrase and an action, BELONGS TO QUEER PEOPLE
and to equate an ongoing struggle (bc as i like to say, coming out is a process, not an event) like this that hold so much meaning and pain and joy for us to an ALLY fucking admitting that they don’t hate us???????? is wrong and gross and appropriative and it makes me angry and uncomfortable
you don’t fucking “come out of the closet” as an ally
WE COME OUT OF THE CLOSET AND WE LOSE OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS, OUR JOBS, OUR LIVES
cishets do not know what “coming out” is and they will never, ever understand
this campaign is shit
I stand with the commentary. Don’t take shit from communities that you are not a part of.
There was an Ally on the Coming Out day panel last year and that was pretty much the day I decided I can’t stand people who ID as allies.
not gonna lie that is really gross
please please please for the love of god do not ~*~*come out*~*~ as an ally
that shit is not cute
……not a corporation-sponsored street closing where people buy Absolut and impose Doryphoros-like standards of muscularity on everyone.
and the riot was started by gender-transgressing poor folks of color (many were sex workers too).. not rich white boys appropriating the language/bodies of femmes of color while spending half their day on their smartphones (checking Grindr)
THAT MOTHERFUCKING BOLDED
as much as i had fun at NYC’s pride march the two times i’ve gone, holy shit does it ever have Issues
The Gay Agenda
who stole my day planner
Gay rights activists: known universally for their awesome signs
STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND WATCH THIS VIDEO
That was 3 of the most fucking amazing minutes in my life ever. Fuck.
only tears now
Man, someday I want to dye my hair rainbow for this or something. :I Hoping to try and make an appropriately prideful shirt to wear.
… NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2011 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United States to eliminate prejudice everywhere it exists, and to celebrate the great diversity of the American people. …
“No one should be harmed because of who they are or who they love…”
So not only have I been alive to experience the first black president but I have also been alive when they made June LGBT Pride Month. Holy fucking shit. This is incredible.
THIS IS WHY BEING BORN IN JUNE IS THE BEST?????
thank you obama.
This made the end of a tough day a lot better for me.
