Human Rights Watch says the men were charged with “lewd or unnatural acts with an individual of the same sex”. Ugh.

…and you can add more than one! Amazing! Now if you switched to US English to get the options, you can switch back.

Some of the options are weird (‘asexual’ as a gender identity??) but mainly a Good Thing.

I wrote a thing that’s in a thing. that’s scary.

Amazing piece by CN Lester, about why they avoid cis queer spaces, the #NoUnexpectedPenises hashtag, and trans-exclusionary feminists’ shite views on science.

the only proof they’ll accept is your own fucking sex tapes you’ve made for your own private fucking viewing. ugh.

This is what the cast of a Stonewall movie should look like, not what’s being cast.

These are just a few of the beautiful, incredible, unbelievably brave people who made our movement possible. Pay respect to the people who were involved in the Stonewall Riots by boycotting this planned whitewashed film about cis gay men and drag queens because it’s false and disrespectful to the trans women of color and the other extremely important marginalized groups that sparked the movement we have and benefit from today. Don’t allow this movie to further perpetuate the whitewashing of history and lies about who really was fighting in the Stonewall Riots.

TRANS WOMEN OF COLOR SUCH AS MARSHA P. JOHNSON AND SYLVIA RIVERA PLAYED A CRUCIAL ROLE IN THE STONEWALL RIOT AND TO DENY THAT IS TO DENY HISTORY.

did not know that there was gonna be a Stonewall film. ewwwwwwwwwwww

Never forget: When the concentration camps were liberated in WW2, the Queer people who had survived the camps were put in prison, and forced to carry out their sentences for being queer.

The UK TV channel E4 are looking for a TRANS ACTRESS for a roll. Like a real trans person!

Just sharing this in case any of my followers would be interested in applying.

Please signal boost, this could be a fantastic opportunity for someone.

Reblogging again with a link because the link above doesn’t seem to work. They’re looking for a trans woman between around 20-40 (non-actors with the confidence to audition welcome, as well as those with acting experience), and it’s one episode of a new 8 part series by Russell T Davies, to be filmed between 9th June and 8th July in Manchester, England.

Rarely has a truer word been spoken.

Statement from QTIPOC Brighton on the use of racial slurs at Brighton IDAHOBIT event 2014

qtipocbrighton:

QTIPOC Brighton are deeply unhappy to hear that the racial slur ‘n*****’ was used in a speech by a member of The Clare Project at this year’s IDAHOBIT event. We are disturbed that the violence of racist language was deemed appropriate while challenging the violence of homophobia, biphobia and transphobia. For people of colour and others in attendance this would have created a deeply unsafe environment, and sends the message that the Brighton LGBT community are not particularly concerned about the inclusion or safety of people of colour who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or trans*.

QTIPOC Brighton feels a public apology from both The Clare Project and the organisers of IDAHOBIT is needed, along with a commitment to ensuring future IDAHOBIT events are anti-racist and inclusive in their organisation and delivery.
