Equality House, the rainbow-colored LGBT nonprofit center built strategically across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church, had its first fundraiser drag show on Saturday. It was appropriately titled “Drag Down Bigotry” and raised money for causes that fight anti-LGBT bullying. Work. (via The Advocate)
Awww! These people are my heroes. This is what I envisioned my future being while I was in high school and imagining all the activism I’d be doing :D
Turns out there is a price to pay for protecting your rainforests.
This is fucking important! Sign and reblog.
wow this is outrageous, why isn’t this going around? from the link:
Infinito Gold, a Canadian mining company, just slapped Costa Rica with a $1 billion lawsuit simply because the country decided its rainforests were more important than an open-pit gold mine.
Lauded as one of the countries with the most beautiful rainforests, it’s no wonder Costa Rica rejected Infinito’s mine. Costa Rica’s rainforest is home to many endangered species such the green macaw. Gold mining also uses toxic chemicals such as cyanide, which often leaks into and pollutes nearby lakes and rivers.
A subsidiary of Infinito Gold has announced that a massive lawsuit is “imminent”, so we need to act now. If thousands of us stand together, we can show Infinito that countries such as Costa Rica should have the right to protect their rainforests without being persecuted by corporations.
please sign and reblog!
It’s bad enough that people believe corporate interests override human rights, but Nation States, difficult as they are to endorse, are the Primary vehicles for protecting human rights, environmental rights, rule of law, and so forth. This company needs to get smacked the heck down.
Too important not to share
Shout out to all the closeted LGBT people who have to return to unsafe family environments this season. Remember that there is nothing wrong with you and that no, you are not a hypocrite for loving the people who raised you despite the things they have done to hurt you. Above all remember that you will always have friends who support you even if your family does not.

I almost forgot…..Nevada State Senator Kelvin Atkinson comes out as a black gay man today
When Francine came out to her very strict mother, it seriously was one of the most inspiring touching things I’ve ever seen. For those of you who are struggling with coming out to your parents, there’s hope.
