It just got so much better!

Someone wrote me an essay on Grindr.
All in response to my headline being “Gaaaay” and my self description as follows : ” Fag, retail, coffee and books, into out guys only. Not thin or masc.”
Am I oppressing a faceless man by being myself? If so, I’m okay with it.

Another thing that I love about “The Fosters” is their including a femme preteen boy.

I HATE STRAIGHTS flyer
Queer Nation New York, 1991
This summarizes my thoughts often.

The Black queer community certainly has a lot to be proud of these days.

Good day off.
I had my last class of my ASL 201 course at Deaf Alberta’s Calgary office tonight. We had a little story telling then we went across the street to a pub to eat and drink and chat. We received certificates to say we had completed the course and all agreed we would take the next class when it is offered in the Fall.
I just talked to one of the hottest guys I’ve ever seen (online and in-person at the bar) on Scruff. He’s funny and attractive and has a job. I’m in.
Now I’m watching a ridiculous movie I found on a torrenting site. It stars Keanu Reeves (also already a good idea) and it’s about feudal Japan (what?) and Keanu plays a wild child who was found in the forest then adopted by a feudal lord. He’s in love with the lord’s daughter who he was raised to be friends with, and all the samurai in his kingdom hate him. Oh, and there’s an evil rival lord who hates the Keanu’s lord and has a witch concubine.
I’m only twenty minutes in and it’s so complicated and ridiculous. I love it.

[text reads: “You’re hurting your cause by not wanting straight people to speak on behalf of LGBTQ+ people.” <3]

Transsexual acting coach Calpernia Addams on trans roles in Hollywood
In part she writes:
Sure, I’d love to get these roles as an actress with a history of transition, or see them go to other trans actors. (Heck, I’d love to play nontrans roles!) But I’m not so shortsighted that I’ll destroy allies and advocates — even less-than-perfect allies — if I think the overall contribution is beneficial. My beliefs in this area come from actual experience and familiarity with the film industry. Some small but vocal groups will disagree, and that’s just the nature of contentious issues. They can do their thing, and I’ll do mine, because in the end, there are many ways to contribute.
