When asked if homosexuality was a disease, this was James Baldwin’s response. * James Baldwin was a major queer black literary figure. He wrote several works about the experience of being a black man in America before the Civil Rights Movement. Through moving, influential, and controversial works such as “Giovanni’s Room” and “Just Above My Head,” he used fiction to explore the complexities of racial and sexual marginalization. 📸: James Baldwin at tea in Bebek, 1965 ©️ Sedat Pakay - - - - - #lovewins #lovealwayswins #loveislove #pride #lgbtpride #lgbtqpride #lgbt #queer #lgbtcommunity #lgbteducation #lgbtq #lgbtqcommunity #lgbtqeducation #lgbtactivism #lgbtqactivism #activism #feminism #intersectionalfeminist #intersectionality #writing #lgbtwriting #lgbtpoetry #lgbtqwriting #lgbtqpoetry #queerwriting #queerpoetry

I do, I do and will and will for those who still can’t vow it yet, but know love’s exact reason as much as they know how a sail keeps the wind without breaking, or how roots dig a way into the earth, Or how the stars open their eyes to the night, or how a vine becomes one with the wall it loves, or how, when I hold you, you are rain in my hands. - Richard Blanco, 'Until We Could' #PrideSpeaks #PrideMonth #pridemonth2018 #LGBT #LGBTPride #lgbtpoetry #QueerLove #QueerMarriage #SameSexMarriage #LoveisLove #Pride #RichardBlanco #LovePoem #QueerLovePoem #LovePoetry #Poetry #FreeTheVerse

📸: @liaclay for @them * Pride is the time for queer visibility. Blair Imani is the author of @modernherstory , the founder @equalityforher , and a queer, black, Muslim woman. A queer hero. #Queeroes2018 Here are her words on queer visibility. 💞🌈 “Queer visibility is still important because injustice is still rampant in 2018. For example, the life expectancy of a trans woman of color is 35 years old and conversion therapy is legal in the majority of the United States. Right now, there are people in power who believe that queer people should not exist. Queer visibility means that we can demonstrate to those bigots: We do exist, we deserve to exist, and our realities matter. The month of pride is something that I think of as a time of radical celebration that will give me the inspiration and encouragement to continue to fight injustice throughout the year. Visibility means showcasing our realities, our wins, our struggles, and it means we can join together as a global community in new ways.” • • • SOURCE: “5 Young LGBT Leaders Got Surprised By Their Own Queer Role Models,” where BuzzFeed News asked each of the participants what queer visibility means to them personally and why it continues to be important. - - - - - #lovewins #lovealwayswins #loveislove #pride #lgbtpride #lgbtqpride #lgbt #queer #lgbtcommunity #lgbteducation #lgbtq #lgbtqcommunity #lgbtqeducation #lgbtactivism #lgbtqactivism #activism #feminism #intersectionalfeminist #intersectionality #writing #lgbtwriting #lgbtpoetry #lgbtqwriting #lgbtqpoetry #queerwriting #queerpoetry
I heard a quote once that college makes you thankful for home, but home in turn makes you grateful for college. And I feel that. I like to come home and collapse into bed after a hard day at school, but I'm also trying to earn my financial independence so that no one can silence me. Control me. Tell me what I can do or say. -I've seen the way that money can control a mouth. And that won't be me. Never. #poetsofinstagram #poetsclub #writersofig #writersofinstagram #lgbtart #lgbtpoetry #art #instapoet #poemaday #poemsoninstagram #poet #poetrycommunityofinstagram #poetryisart #gay #poetsofig #prose #spilledink #spilledthoughts #wordporn #poetryisnotdead #poetryofinstagram #LGBT #pride #typewriterpoetry

Warsaw's Rainbow installation, made of artificial flowers and aimed at raising awareness on LGBT rights, was subject to vandalism and burning down by Polish nationalists, leading to it being taken down in 2015. This year, it has returned, made indestructible: the new Rainbow is an installation of water and light, and cannot be destroyed by acts of hate! #lgbt #lgbtpride #gaypride #pridemonth2018 #loveislove #lgbtpridedelhi #lgbtpoetry #queerdelhi #queerart #queermusic #lgbtart #lgbtrainbow #poland #warsaw #warsawrainbow #warsawpride #genderequality #pride2018 #warsawpride2018
I run away when things are good And never really understood The way you laid your eyes on me In ways that no one ever could And so it seems I broke your heart My ignorance has struck again I failed to see it from the start And tore you open til' the end So I'm sorry to my unknown lover Sorry that I can't believe That anybody ever really Starts to fall in love with me -//halsey/sorry// (I love Halsey so much. I have never felt that a musician undertands me the way that her music does. I guess everyone has their answer to that cliche.

“pride (n.) a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one's own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired. pride is something that brings our community together because all LGBTQ folks have something to be proud of.  pride can come from something as light as wearing an rainbow bracelet in public to something as big as coming to terms with your gender and/or sexuality. LGBTQ pride makes us feel at home; it helps us cope with the bad things in our life.  for one month out of the year, our community gets together to remind ourselves of this. however, it’s important to remember to wear pride not only during LGBTQ pride month, but year round.  we have come so far as individuals and as a community, and our achievements deserve to be recognized always. never be disappointed of who you are.  because you’re a star.” - @lvcas._ , former UHS GSA president, on what pride means to him and here with a message to our community 💞🏳️‍🌈⭐️ - - - - - #lovewins #lovealwayswins #loveislove #pride #lgbtpride #lgbtqpride #lgbt #queer #lgbtcommunity #lgbteducation #lgbtq #lgbtqcommunity #lgbtqeducation #lgbtactivism #lgbtqactivism #activism #feminism #intersectionalfeminist #intersectionality #writing #lgbtwriting #lgbtpoetry #lgbtqwriting #lgbtqpoetry #queerwriting #queerpoetry

Wellll.... My current hobbies include unintentionally and accidentally catching feelings for a girl halfway across the US when just trying to casually talk and make internet friends. And hyperrr regretting all of this because of the reality of the situation and also wanting to barricade my heart or maybe just throw my phone away.

Alguna vez fui un inmortal, y senti la maldicion fria al ver eones pasar, era inmune a los estragos del tiempo, pero yo me sentia vacio con una vida eterna.

Since I posted about my medal here is one poem from the 10 I submitted called No Yes Maybe. Alot of my pieces were very hard for me to imagine sharing with my Catholic college professors as they talk about my love life, and you could imagine as a lesbian the nuns don't really support it. This is one reason I'm so shocked I was awarded the medal. Enjoy!

In a recipe for contentment, Cease and desist all operations Of searching Excavating your heart tomb Just as the scab begins to heal Crusty flakes edging up, Desperately aching, Your fingernail- the hoe; The scab, your garden in a state of desperately needing tilled Because it feels good to pain Goddamnit, youre bigger than this, SuperNova; explode! And in your explosion Realize That you were always complete A neverending cup filling itself from a neverending cup filling itself from a neverending cup filling itself. And it can never not be full- Forget about empty. You now and forevermore are full, Of life Of joy Of spirit Of the essence of it all A neverending cup refilled by the universe, for the universe, set on perpetual contentment. Already where you need to Be Already in love with love With life With wife The universe existing and experiencing its own infinity.

(TW: mentions of violence, homophobia, and transphobia) It can be so easy to feel that we are surrounded by hate. Today I was watching the news and saw that Ginger Snap, a drag queen from San Francisco, was attacked last weekend while leaving the well-known gay bar SF Eagle. Anger, sorrow, fear, helplessness... it all churned within me. The worst of it was knowing that this was not an isolated incident. Our right to exist, as we are, is constantly threatened, as hateful people see differences in attraction and gender nonconformity as invitations for spits, slurs, shouts... and, as seen in this case and many more, violence and even death. * We cannot let hate win. Hate is poisonous; it expects us to accept the anger, the sorrow, the fear, the helplessness, to let it consume us. Hate is the force that tries to drown us in this barrel of toxic waste. Hate attacks us, tearing down our bodies, wanting us to conform and hate who we are. * During Pride, we recognize that hate holds a candle to the fiery power of love. Despite it all, we have that power to take the hate expected from us and replace it with the love that grows from ourselves. This love grows in the form of self-care — learning to see ourselves not as invitations for insult, but as the radiant beings we are, worthy of love and care. * It’s okay if learning this takes a while; a sapling does not grow into a tree in a day. It starts with self-care. Drink some water, eat some food, get some sunlight, because if you feel like you’re buried, you need to give yourself the chance to grow. You weren’t buried, friend, but planted. Give yourself care, and you give yourself love. LOVING YOURSELF IS THE GREATEST REVOLUTION. It tells hate that it is powerless. That it cannot and will not tear us down. And when we stand as a community, armed with self-care? We will not let hate win. 🌱🏳️‍🌈💖 - - - - - #lovewins #lovealwayswins #loveislove #pride #lgbtpride #lgbtqpride #lgbt #queer #lgbtcommunity #lgbteducation #lgbtq #lgbtqcommunity #lgbtqeducation #lgbtactivism #lgbtqactivism #activism #intersectionfeminism #writing #lgbtwriting #lgbtpoetry #lgbtqwriting #lgbtqpoetry #queerwriting #queerpoetry #selfcare
. . . I never once claimed superiority. There has never been a time when I believed that my ideals were better than yours. I just don’t think that way. We don’t live for that. We don’t live to walk this earth and brand each other with the burning rod of our thoughts. Our eyes should see more than that. Our hearts should be elsewhere. Our limbs should be dancing across the streets that we’ve grown up in without fear of betrayal. I feel like we’ve all earned that. We don’t need to apologize for the words that I splash across this page, and I won’t apologize, either. I am only sorry that you are sorry, because I’ll never beg forgiveness for loving her just as much as you tell me you love me every day. We’ve come too far for that. We’ve learned too much for that. We’ve weathered too many storms without our raincoats to be afraid of thunder, now. The lightning cannot expose us. We are all living in denial, and you are just as hypocritical as I have been my entire life. So, no, I won’t change any part of me. I am just as human as you are. - Graves - . . .

So go. Deep into the woods, into the forest. Pack your bags. I won't even try to stop you.... Go live in your guys' "remote cabin" that I have heard you endlessly fantasize about. Do it. Because I am tired of your hateful epithets towards me, especially when I have been nothing but patient and loving towards you. And I will not try to understand someone anymore who does not try to understand me anymore; I believe in reciprocation of the respect I give. And our relationship has been a joke for quite some time now. The only real thing is your extreme stubbornness and lack of love--all except for one man... So go. Deep into the woods, into that forest. Into that "remote cabin" that you seek so much. Find the "inner-peace" that you crave from your cursed life--the life with me in it... Go. I won't stop you. I'll even help you pack your bags. And then you guys can gossip all day--your preferred passtime--about how flawed the rest of society is- your friends, siblings, and children. And you two can continue to feed each other's egos by redundantly reassuring one another how perfect you both are, and especially for each other--with your "simple" and "traditional" "man and woman marriage." And at night, you guys can both keep each other company, but your warmth will have to come from places other than your hearts. -why I am in no rush to "fall in love;" I have never seen it manifest romantically in a non-toxic way. #poetsofinstagram #poetsclub #writersofig #writersofinstagram #lgbtart #lgbtpoetry #art #instapoet #poemaday #poemsoninstagram #poet #poetrycommunityofinstagram #poetryisart #gay #poetsofig #prose #spilledink #spilledthoughts #wordporn #poetryisnotdead #poetryofinstagram #LGBT #pride #typewriterpoetry #poemsofinstagram #anxiety #woman #feminism #coffee #photography
