Just reblogging random stuff and things I like and enjoy.
WARNING: Trigger warning posts from time to time.
Tumblr, we need you! A rogue Arizona State representative, John Kavanagh, wants to pass a bill that would thow trans people in jail for using public restrooms. Anyone could be asked for I.D. to “prove” their gender, and if there’s a discrepancy they could face a fine or jailtime.
When asked why the bill targeted trans people, Kavanagh explained that it’s because he thinks “they’re weird.” Outrageous.
We can stop this bill by taking action at www.allout.org/arizona and spreading the word far and wide. Will you help?
You guys please reblog this and spread this like wildfire. This is where I live and I would hate to see the trans people of my state not be abLE TO FUCKING PISS BECAUSE OF THE GENDER THEY IDENTIFY WITH
"I’m sick of how bisexuality is erased in LGBT spaces. I get really nervous before any LGBT event, especially Pride. I feel incredibly sad and hopeless when gay and lesbian people call me insulting names. If gay and lesbian people don’t understand me – Continue reading Prejudice at Pride at Empathize This
Spent some time after the UXLx conference winding down and strolling through Alfama, the historic neighborhood of Lisbon sprawling with Visigothic and Arabic-inspired architecture. Up cobblestone hills are houses, Fado bars, restaurants, museums and shops vibrant with colors and ceramic tile patterns — and a breathtaking view of red-tiled rooftops framing the ocean horizon.
One of my favorite parts of traveling alone and without an itinerary is that everything I encounter feels like a happy discovery. I met up with one of the other conference attendees and we stumbled upon an entire festival within Alfama’s cobbled alleys, brimming with colors and grilled sardines and papier-mâchémanjerico flowers and seafood and sangria and ginjinha. Later we learned, after striking up a conversation with some random travelers, that Lisbon was celebrating Festas dos Santos Populares — its biggest citywide celebration of the year.
The story behind this particular series of festivals, particularly the Festival of San Antonios, goes as follows: San Antonios is known today as the keeper of lost things and the marriage saint. Every year in Lisbon since the 1950s, young men and women have flocked to Lisbon to receive San Antonio’s blessing in one giant citywide wedding ceremony at the Sé Cathedral. Lisbon holds a series of festivals every weekend in early June that culminate into the blessings of hundreds of couples.
Just imagine, she said; an entire city dedicating so much to celebrating your love.
