Imma just let this sit here
Maybe this “cure” will stick *fingers crossed*
I was holding hands with this guy in town at night and we rounded a corner and he let go of my hand, and I just looked at him questioningly and he said to me “I don’t want us to get beaten up”
It sort of breaks my heart every time I remember it
Mine too, friend. Mine too :\
STORY TIME KIDS. Lucas Grabeel who played Ryan Evans was 100% for making Ryan canonically gay, and spoke to Kenny Ortega at length to get Ryan to at least hold hands with a male student in the final scene. Grabeel is straight but thought it was so important for Disney viewers to see gay characters on TV, knowing that the HSM3 viewership was age 11+, when kids may start thinking about who they’re attracted to a bit more. basically Disney gave Lucas a flat out no and as a response wrote in Ryan’s relationship with Kelsi last minute (as speculation was already flying around about Kelsi being a lesbian). so even though disney screwed them over ortega told grabeel that he could do whatever he liked in the blooper reel and they’d include it in the DVD. hence above.
I reblog this every time its on my dashboard and I’m not even approaching embarrassed.

Don’t let the black and white trick you. The Capitol Crawl was in 1990. This is not ancient history.
Meet the faces of the “I’m Sorry” campaign, a group of Christians who go to Chicago’s pride celebrations every year to apologize for their past hateful actions against LGBT people. The group started in 2010 and has since moved to other cities across the world. This is what love looks like. (via the Advocate)

My name is Kate, I’m nineteen, and I’m a student at the University of Pittsburgh. I worked extremely hard in high school and managed to earn a 4.1 GPA. In College, I made the Dean’s List for academic excellence during both the fall and spring semester.
Unfortunately, a week before my first year of college started, my father went through my mail and found out that I am gay. My family, including extended family, is extremely homophobic. After they found out, my parents cut me off financially and I am no longer living with them. They are both unwilling and unable to cosign loans on my behalf. I have searched extensively, but I have been unable to find any loans which don’t require a cosigner.
Due to my inability to cover an entire year of tuition, I have decided to spend the fall semester at a community college in the area I am currently living. I have some money saved up from my summer job and a $6500 school loan which will be used toward the second semester, but I still need about $15,000 on top of that in order to make it through this school year. I’m one of three people renting a house for the year with a monthly rent, and I also need to have money for food. I have asthma and allergies which require several medications monthly in order to maintain my health. Most of the money I make at work is going toward rent for this semester and my classes at the community college.
Going to Pitt is a dream of mine and I couldn’t bear the thought of not being able to stay there. I am majoring in English and History and minoring in German with the hope of becoming a novelist. I will be immensly grateful if your contributions allow me to stay at Pitt. I’m praying every day for a miracle to help make this possible.
If you can offer anything, please do not hesitate. Stay strong, love <3

GOD DANIEL RADCLIFFE IS JUST THE BEST AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN.
Gay sex: it’s been happening for years.
I like this in particular because they bring light to the fact that people are so desensitized to violence and blood and death. All kinds of death, fictional or otherwise, happens on our media screens, but soon as there are queer couples kissing, RUN FOR THE HILLS. /logic
I think this speaks for itself. Accepting a person doesn’t mean you get to put limits on their freedom. You can’t be an ally and want us to stop talking, or labeling, or demanding to be heard.
Acceptance has no exceptions. Period.
All or nothing
