I am an 18-year-old studying Applied Computing in the UK. And I have decided to write a book about LGBT+ Equality. I'm addicted to IRN BRU and cupcakes, and like to sleep. A lot.

I will be reblogging things I find interesting, useful, and informative, as well as posting snippets of my book to be reviewed by you guys. And I will be asking for your stories, opinions, thoughts, feelings, anything to add (submit here).

You guys can find me on Facebook (LGBT+ Equality) and Twitter (@LGBTEqualityBk) if you like.

**WARNING** Some material may be triggering or offensive to some, I'll tag what I think I need to but if I miss or get something wrong please let me know and I'll alter it.

I love these so hard.

I picked the genderiest ones to reblog here, but do check out more of Carol Rossetti’s artwork online. I am so smitten. What a beautiful message. Thanks, Carol.

John Legend’s new video with Laverne Cox shows there’s no one way to be beautiful

Legend’s video for his song “You and I” is a bold statement against the conventional beauty standards promoted by the typical R&B narrative — the one in which a ripped man meets an attractive young woman “with a booty" and wins her heart over the course of a couple of key changes. "You and I" subverts that narrow trope by instead featuring women of all ages, shapes, colors and sizes. It reminds everyone that love is about two people and their feelings — not two people and what society says is sexy.

The terrific (and queer!) Tig Notaru is in there too.

What gay men give to the world.  A-yup.

On the second one.

There’s this one gay club I go to that actually has a problem of straight guys going there to dance with girls.  I guess these guys don’t understand that girls can also be gay, because they assume that any girls at the club are there with their gay guy friends.

So one night I was out on the dance floor, and I see this guy.  He’s like over six-foot, at least, all beefed-up, muscle shirt, looks kindof like a douchebag.  And he’s just circling the dance floor, in one continuous loop, looking at the crowd like a predator, and it’s creeping me the fuck out.

It’s creeping me out enough that I don’t immediately realize what’s going on nearby.  Some girl has attracted one of the Assholes, who has proceeded to begin grinding on her.  She’s pushing him away, telling him to get lost.  He’s pulling that whole, “come on, don’t be a bitch” spiel, and generally just not getting the message.

BAM.  Suddenly, the prowling guy swoops in, like some sort of Gay Avenger.  He shoves himself between the girl and the Asshole, grabs the Asshole by the hips, and starts dirty dancing him like a God-damned fuck machine.  Asshole completely flips his shit, like how DARE another man try to dance with him at a GAY BAR???, starts spitting curses, and tears ass off the dance floor and out onto the sidewalk.

The Gay Avenger turns back to the girl, inclines his head in an, “are you okay?” sort of gesture.  She nods, and he returns to his previous position of circling the dance floor, looking for his next target.

Told this story to some guys upstairs.  Apparently Gay Avenger is a regular there.

someone write a comic book about Gay Avenger.

Reblogging for Gay Avenger

Gay Avenger is my favorite story on tumblr

GAY AVENGER

I did my undergrad thesis on Gay Avenger.

Gay Avenger is love. Gay Avenger is life.

halftheskymovement:

This powerful video from Always Feminine Products seeks to reclaim the phrase “Like A Girl.” As one woman in the video asserts, “I am a girl and that is not something that I should be ashamed of.”

How one mom came out to her family after falling in love with her children's au pair
