I am Muslim and I denounce homophobia and transphobia #jihad4equality
Re-blog to support Jason Collins, who has become the first openly gay male athlete playing in a major American team sport!
Jason says he wears jersey #98 to honor Matthew Shepard and The Trevor Project (we were founded in 1998).

The Rhode Island Senate just voted 26-12 to approve marriage equality, guaranteeing that The Ocean State will be the 10th state to allow same-sex couples to legally marry. Because the Senate made some revisions to the bill, it still requires a final passage in the Rhode Island House, which will likely happen next Thursday. Back in January, it passed easily there by an overwhelming 51-19 vote. Gov. Lincoln Chafee (I) has promised to sign the bill.
manga-nerd asked: Currently I donate monthly to the HRC. Lately, however, I've been hearing that they prioritize "normal" LGBT people, silence the voices of non-conformers, are mainly concerned with marriage equality, etc. Do you have any suggestions for other organizations or charities where my money would be put to better use? Thanks.
Will: there are so many charities its hard to choose. I mean you have the Gay & Lesbian Leadership Institute, Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice, The Point Foundation, The Empowering Spirits Foundation, and so many more. So good luck. You can also help your local charities that support the community. :D
today my friend said that he was going to do an impersonation of a gay man and i got ready for some homophobic high pitched comment about clothes but instead he just said in the exact same tone without expression “i am attracted to men”
This was forwarded to me, so I’m passing it on. There is more info that was in the email but should be available via the people doing the study if you’re curious for more details:
We are doing a research study about transgender men’s’ experiences with pregnancy. We are surveying people who identify as transgender men (assigned female at birth with a transmasculine/ transmale/ female-to-male gender identity) who have been pregnant and delivered a baby. If you self-identify with this population, then we would like to invite you to participate in this study.
If you choose to be in the study, you will complete an online survey. It will take about 20 minutes to complete. The questions will relate to your experience with fertility, conception, pregnancy, and birth. To be eligible for the study you must be over 18 years old and have completed a pregnancy within the past 10 years.
You can skip questions that you do not want to answer or stop the survey at any time. The survey is anonymous, and no one will be able to link your answers back to you. Please do not include your name or other information that could be used to identify you in the survey responses.
Questions? Please contact the study coordinator Lexi Light (415-206-6453, LightA@obgyn.ucsf.edu) or the principal investigator Dr. Jennifer Kerns (415-206-3157, KernsJL@obgyn.ucsf.edu). If you have questions or concerns about your rights as a research participant, you can call the UCSF Committee on Human Research at 415-476-1814.
Being in this study is optional. If you want to participate, click this link to start the survey: https://redcap.ucsfopenresearch.org/surveys/?s=c4SXLP.
This looks incredibly interesting. It’s good that research on this sort of topic is being done, since a lot of medical research completely ignores the existence of trans* people, especially those that use their reproductive systems.
You’d know who she was if you grew up on Degrassi & Canadian tv.
Aliya Jasmine, you will be missed
The price and the feels.
Edit: The live action show needs a gay character….and no not a fandom otp type scenario.
