Legacy Counseling Housing Services in #Dallas has gone from being the place where people with #AIDS could go to die with dignity, to the place where people with #HIV/AIDS get help, get better, and usually get to walk back out.
Join your friendly neighborhood #queers on Feb 24, 10:00-12:30am, in prepping new Legacy housing for more patients. We'll be giving them whatever help they need: cleaning, moving/arranging furniture, etc. #Gay101
In 1926, Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, Wallace Thurman, Aaron Douglas, Richard Bruce Nugent, Gwendolyn Bennett and John P. Davis created "FIRE!! Devoted To Younger Negro Artists".
Only one issue was ever made. FIRE!! is in the public domain. You can read it here: https://issuu.com/poczineproject/docs/poczp_fire_1926_readview
It’s impossible not to wonder who’s next.
Happy 30th Coming Out Anniversary to Sir Ian McKellen. 🏳️🌈
“I’ve never met a gay person who regretted coming out – including myself.”
“I wish I’d felt able to come out earlier.”
Happy Thomas Paine Day, Fediverse.

Something that was right in front of my face but I’d never really considered: Doctor Who as #trans allegory.
Does anyone know the best way to watch the upcoming Winter #Olympics —
1) without broadcast TV access
2) without cable TV access
3) with internet access
4) from the US
I’m aware of some not-so-great ways to do this, but I’m hoping the wisdom of the crowd might suggest something I’d not considered.

Consider psycho-homo-assassin “Cobbs Pond”. I know I’m supposed to hate him for reinforcing the #queer = deviant cliché; but he’s balanced out by his straight-laced closeted boyfriend; & in his literally cut-throat world, he’s easily the 3rd most dangerous man. Plus, as the story progresses, he’s getting more #fey, #fabulous, #DGAF, & deadly. So I’m rooting for this killer queen.
Don't miss the “#LGBT+ Mix & Mingle” on Tuesday, January 16, 2018 from 5-7 pm in the #Gender Center (SSB 4.300). This is a good opportunity for students to connect with the LGBT+ faculty and staff at #UTD.
@darkmirror I just wanted to repeat this for anyone in #Dallas who may have forgotten / missed it amid all the holiday partying. Just imagine a cute little puppy or kitten looking up at you wistfully, saying “Please, kind #queer person, make me look fabulous and adoptable, so some little child will take me home”. Plus we’re all going out for lunch afterwards. Details in the original toot.

Angela Bassett, in the role of Denise’s mother, masterfully portrayed the often complex and conflicting reactions that some working-class families of #color have towards their #queer children —even when they love them dearly— and how their attitudes can evolve over time.
Sometimes it felt almost *too* real.
So yes: five stars, two thumbs up, worth watching.

Having just seen it, I now know why the Community is embracing this movie. The wise, warm, beautiful monologue delivered by Elio’s father (played by Micheal Stuhlbarg) is what every #queer person of a certain age wishes they’d been given, but few ever received. If the opportunity comes your way, be the accepting older person that a young #lgbt person needs.
