Somewhere in an old notebook of mine is a handwritten recipe describing all the components and rituals —and for all I recall, incantations— required to make some downright magical #tamales.
Somewhere in my home is that old notebook, so nondescript that most of the time your eyes involuntarily slide right past it.
Somewhere in my head is a ten-month-old memory of where I put that old notebook “for safekeeping”.
Let the treasure hunt begin...
In case you’re wondering why you need to come out, enough straight people have now met enough of us that the attitudes described in this article are no longer in the majority. They’ve seen differently, with their own eyes.
I only recently learned that this day was picked because it marked the end of the Salem #witch trials.
Kinda puts getting told-off and trash-talked into perspective.
Of course, since “it” often starts with words, it’s a good thing we have days like today to make the point that no, we’re not inherently immoral baby-eaters, thank you very much. ;)
Happy belated National Coming Out Day (https://www.hrc.org/resources/national-coming-out-day )! Thanks to everyone who came out (https://www.rucomingout.com/). The more varied #gay people known by mainstream society, the better it goes for all #queer people, even those who can’t yet come out. We go from people thinking there are no #trans teachers, #lesbian cops, etc... to eventually getting anti-#discrimination ordinances and an #LGBT liaison in the mayor’s office.

The memories of my departed #blood #relatives, #queer #family-of-choice, and 49 others —some represented with photos, most represented in symbols— will be honored this Day of the Dead with some choice hipster #chocolate at their #altar.
I had to set up this altar early because there's no way I'll have time to set it up closer to the actual day.

In my little corner of the universe, it's #Banned #Books Week, so of course I'm going hunting for new reading material in the #American #Library Association's list of last year's most "challenged" titles.

T minus one hour before the #Dallas #Pride parade, and I’m holding down my group’s staging area by myself because —through a series of uncontrollable last-minute events— I find myself playing the role of “responsible adult” today. That’s OK; I’ve brought extra water, sunscreen, and Pride flags; we should be in good shape. We’re due to march between a church and a strip club, which is just #SoDallas.
