FIRST SAME-SEX MARRIAGE IN THE FRENCH CARIBBEAN in the small town of Le Carbet in MARTINIQUE
Tilda Swinton risked arrest waving a rainbow flag in front of the Kremlin in violation of Russia’s new homosexual propaganda bill. And she wants everyone who can to share it in solidarity. (x)
Stonewall Riots, June 28, 1969 (and following days)
What I can’t think stop thinking about is how brave it was to be part of this movement, because — on top of all the other brave things — they were outing themselves to the police and the media and maybe their families at a time when it was even more frightening to be out.
Also, struck by the fact that I’ve never seen these photos before. This is a part of the American civil rights movement that we didn’t study in school.
Today is a day that will go down in history as a monumental one in the battle for equal rights. Brad and I are thrilled at the huge step the SCOTUS has taken, though there is still far to go.
Scenes of celebration following today’s rulings on Prop. 8, DOMA
The Supreme Court handed two major victories to the gay marriage movement this morning, ruling a key part of the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional, and effectively ending Proposition 8 in California.
You can read the full opinions of the court here, or just keep looking at the joy over the rulings captured above.

Today is one of the most remarkable days. Finally. Making history, seeing change.
I actually immediately started crying when I saw this post
Yesterday, my 8 year old brother asked me why I don’t have a boyfriend. I simply told him I didn’t like boys, because boys have cooties. He wasn’t convinced, though. He looked me straight in the eye and asked if I had a girlfriend. I was shocked. I thought I did a pretty good job of keeping my sexuality to myself after coming out to my mom had backfired, but apparently not. I didn’t want to lie to him, so I just smiled and said I wish, but I don’t. He thought for a few minutes and then asked if that was why I didn’t dress like a girly girl, like my little sister. I told him yes, that’s part of it. And that was that. No further questions, he accepted it and went back to playing with his legos.
Today, I came home to a bag from Kohl’s laying on my bed with this blue shirt in it. I took it to my brother to have him hang it up, but he said it wasn’t his. He said he bought it with his birthday money for me while he was out with my stepdad, because it’s my favorite color. I told him I love it and gave him a hug. Before he ran off again, he made sure to whisper to me that it came from the boy’s section.
I’ve never felt more loved or accepted than I do today. I have the best brother in the whole world. (:
(Excuse my face, he insisted I made my “grr” face when I took this.)
Reblogging because that is just too cute.
