Tomorrow is the official start of Pride Month, or as I call it, Taco Bell appreciation month:

It’s a time to remember how far we’ve come in this community, and also how far corporations have come in realizing that there’s money to be made off of us:
as a gay teenager, i never felt like i had the proper tools to succeed. that’s why, for this pride month, i’ve partnered with home depot,

I’m not gonna say where these are from because I work for the company that sells them but there’s some stiff competition for most homophobic pride merch this year pic.twitter.com/l107hf3iHu

It’s also a time to get pissed, loud, and angry!
any pride month celebration that does not love, protect, and celebrate our trans siblings is nothing but a wells fargo parade float covered in cops. the discourse this year is going to be unbearable. don’t be distracted. stand up for & with trans people.

The first pride was a riot, and this pride? Well, it’s mainly just confusing.

And remember: just being gay and visible and making art means that you’re doing your part. The world needs us.
as pride inches closer, I just thought I’d offer some perspective ; the world is still heteronormative, cis-centric, and hard to navigate as an lgbtq person. no matter how prevalent lgbtq art seems in online art spaces, remember that you are doing a great work by making it!

That said, if you’re like me, you’ll be spending much of the month of June in your room watching movies while your roommate/friends/randos on the street get absolutely reamed:
I’m watching The Secrets of Dumbledore and my roommate is plowing the shit out of someone in the other room, a thread

And that’s fine, too. Pride comes in many varieties!
