duskandshiverrrr: Dear white queer community, There are proper ways to learn from previous equal rights movements, and to expand upon them. Perhaps the first would be to apply the desire for equality within our own community, because there’s a lot of racism and sexism and anti-trans* fuckery within it. But you can learn. You can take these experiences you’ve heard about and you can grow as a...
