Today in American history: Activist Rosa Parks is born in Tuskegee, Alabama, in 1913. In 1955, Parks courageously refused to give up her seat on a municipal bus to a white man, defying the discriminatory laws of the time. Her extraordinary dedication to civil rights continues to inspire. Show your commitment to equality for all with the Rosa Parks Forever® stamp.

this never gets old
I met the creator of this a month ago and he said he got a lot of hate mail from dudebros who thought that he was a woman complaining about these problems.
This is the second time I have tried to repost this after attempting to like it seven times, I think my phone supports the patriarchy.
Haha, this is adorably hilarious.
A photo of two gay fathers has gone viral on the Internet — but maybe not for the reasons that you would expect.

Independent comic book creator and writer Brian Andersen counts down the greatest LGBT moments that unfolded in the pages of mainstream comics in 2013.
I’ve been working on a game for a while called Dead Century. It’s sort of an Indiana-Jonesy adventure Puzzle/RPG concoction. I think it’s clear to everyone at this point that women, people of color, and queer people of all sorts are represented pretty poorly in modern video games. To that end, I’m making an effort to “be the change” I want to see. The biggest example being that the player can choose from three different appearances for each of their characters, each with a different gender and ethnic background. It’s mostly a cosmetic difference but it’s my little contribution to what I hope will soon become a larger thing in the video game world. Oh there are also some gay kisses and badass ladies.
Anyway, if that sounds like a good idea, you can check it out here or just retumbl, which is free!
Dear humans, please help Kickstart my friend’s queer inclusive (among many other things) video game! Be the change and show the world that there is a demand for games that are inclusive!
God damn, I would reblog + support just for the utterly gorgeous artwork, but the inclusive cast is the icing on the cake
This looks VERY cool.

"Kinks Shirt" by Matt Nathanson
What I really appreciate about this video is that the song makes no mention of the woman’s trans* status; they could have easily done something different with this video, and had Matt’s love interest be cis.
But no, she’s trans*, and most importantly, Character!Matt doesn’t care. They meet, they flirt, they sleep together, they talk over breakfast and clearly have a connection. That’s what matters, not the fact that this woman wasn’t born with a vagina.
THIS IS A BIG DEAL YOU GUYS
God, I didn’t think I needed more reasons to love Matt Nathanson but apparently now I have some.
okay wow this is super cute
i don’t think i’ve ever in my life seen any form of media where there is a trans woman as a love interest who isn’t treated like a freak, isn’t made into a weird fetish object, AND LIVES THROUGH THE ENTIRE THING
and suddenly here it is
i mean its not totally perfect in every way (the “unveiling” of her trans status to the viewers made me cringe a little) but the fact that she’s trans, he knows she’s trans, and it has no bearing on whether he’s into her is just
its fucking nice to see something positive for once
I love this so much. The song is so cute and catchy and the video is fantastic! Four for you Matt Nathanson, FOUR FOR YOU.
Matt’s great and everything he does is great.
The song is super cute and catchy and the vid is sweet!!! LOVE
hey whoa a piece of media that treats a trans* person as an actual human being, like, no big deal, that’s cool.
