I want lgbt book stores, lgbt coffee houses, and lgbt theaters to replace lgbt bars as centers of community, places to meet people, and lgbt rights of passage.
YES. i am so fucking TIRED of every queer event being at a bar or another 21+ venue, especially when alcoholism is a thing for so many, esp. queer youth, and community isolation is such a major factor in so many suicides.
Well I was just talking to someone about this

-whispers- “She wrinkles her nose at the charm Laura produces from under the mattress to show her, refuses to touch it, muttering God only knows where that thing’s been. But that’s not the reason, of course; clever little undead thing wove silver through the bat wing. She scoffs, quips what a weirdo but she really means what a bitch, as if I’d ever let myself hurt you. Wolves are pack animals, after all. No matter how red, no matter how tall.”
clgdoublelifts replied to your post “if u compare lady gaga to macklemore irt appropriating the queer…”can u elaborate bc im relatively unaware of gaga’s whole .. thing
well she’s bi, so treating her interaction with the queer community the same way one would treat macklemore is treating her as if she’s straight. that’s bisexual erasure, which is problematic for obvious reasons. people compare “born this way” (a queer woman celebrating her own and others’ queerness) to “same love” (a straight man co-opting that struggle to make money for himself), and say that Gaga is a “shitty ally” when she’s not even an ally to begin with. in general it’s just people saying she’s straight when she isn’t at all. ofc she does have a whole host of other problems, most of them racism or cultural appropriation related, but she’s often accused of the same things macklemore is, which is wholly unreasonable.
