When your 70 y.o. dad takes you to @thedandelionpub and you eat basically everything on the menu, you drink two martinis, can’t see straight, he somehow manages to pay the bill and drop your a*s off at the train. #goodgenes#philly#dad#portuguese 🇵🇹
I spent some time today thinking about @nasa (no not because of @arianagrande ) and if non-living things have spirits, the way animists and a lot of eastern religions believe. the mars rover #opportunity was projected to last 90 days, but lasted 15 years. they took so many beautiful photographs that will live on forever, like these here. their last message to us here on earth was a heartbreaking: “my battery is almost dead, and it’s getting dark”. are we entering an era where the lines between depth, spirituality, real, and fake are blurred? should we eulogize non-flesh beings? why doesn’t this robot, who’s work will influence our potential to survive on another planet, more famous than our favorite pop stars? i’ve got a lot of questions. 💕 either way, #rip irl wall-e.
#tbt to having mono at age 9 (!!!), being stuck at the hospital for two weeks, but still being g*y enough to tell your mom you need your @spicegirls shirt and a phone to call your friends 🤷🏻♂️💕 so, in conclusion, i’m pretty sure #girlpower saved my life
In light of recent news, it’s important to remember that visibility doesn’t protect #lgbtqia people - it’s stronger, tighter, and more intense laws that keep us safe. only by having this dialogue constantly in the court of law and spending our dollars with brands that also support this (if i see another “ally” eating at @chickfila i’ll die. didn’t @beyonce teach you the best revenge is your paper!?) will we produce change. having said all that, here’s a photo of @speakerpelosi and elizabeth taylor speaking about hiv/aids in 1990 when nobody else would. let’s think more about ways to combine power (fame and money) with action (laws and protections). people know we’re here. it’s not about that. we can wish all we want that perceptions will change; but there will always be racists, bashers, and haters. we just need to find bigger ways to shut them down before they even start. alright. done with my rant. 🎤
