Having friends who I can be unapologetically myself around is the most wonderful thing. Especially around the most wonderful time of the year where we can get drunk in ugly sweaters (and really cool homemade gay shirts). This year has been a crazy mess, and ending it with these people I absolutely love is the best thing ever. Cheers to another holiday party! (Even though these pictures don’t have the whole crew) #bigdrunkgays #uglysweater #uglysweaterparty #party #drunk #queer #love #happy #dorks
You probably heard about the announcement Tumblr made. They're banning all adult content. What's really going on? Who's going to be hurt by this?
The latest episode of TGM is in your feeds now, in all the pod places!

If you asked me five years ago if I wanted top surgery the response that you would’ve received would be somewhere along the lines of: “ I think so, but I’m sure not, its a scary and huge decision to make”. Over the next 4 years I contemplated whether I wanted to wear a binder for the rest of my life or if I was ready to fight for my right to feel safe in my body. This past year I learned that I can accomplish anything I put my mind to. No amount of parental shame, or insurance loop holes prohibited me from putting my dreams in the forefront. I share my story so vividly with each of you because for such a long time I thought that I had to be a certain type of trans man to be “real” enough for this surgery. My message to every gender-queer/non-binary/ gender non-confirming person out there is that no matter how you identify, and where you are on the spectrum you are just enough. Your experience is valid, and what you choose for your body is wonderful, there is no ONE way to be trans or non-binary. Your dreams are worth achieving, and I believe in you. #nonbinary #dreams #topsrugery #strength #queer #noshame #breakthrough
We've got some good news and some bad news for ya.
The bad news is that the final date of A Pair of Pantos: Trans-Positive Pantomime at the Marlborough on 20th December has now totally sold out. But the GOOD NEWS is that we've still got a few tickets avaibable for 18th & 19th December, meaning you need to get your skates on if you're planning on catching the coolest, queerest Panto in all the land!

Jonathan says his paintings sometimes speak to him. They tell him what direction they’d like to take, how heavy the line should be, their color and composition. The figures in his most recent paintings asked him for a little more space. “The paintings were kind of like, ‘Hey, Jon, we need to become bigger,’” he explains. So he went for a much grander scale, responding to their call for “more presence and power” by creating compositions that are nearly 10 by 10.5 feet. That opens up a lot more room for his full-bodied, gender-defying figures, floating in ambient blue or engaged in intimate acts in abstracted interior spaces. -@artsy

Journal entry for my gf: Unstable relationships have always been a staple in my mental illness. I’m almost certain that no one but the people I fall in love with know the true me. The one who can smile from ear to ear one second and bang their head on the wall screaming they want to die in the next. I’m almost certain that dating me feels like you’re living on edge, never truly sure when I’ll flip. When I’ll no longer see you like everything right in this world. Spit venom in your eyes and tear down every wall in the home we’ve built. Im sorry this happens, I’m sorry it happens so often. I’m sorry that I can’t be certain of when this will no longer be a reality. But I’m thankful for your patience, love and respect for my journey and pain. That despite my thoughts and actions being totally irrational you still give me space to be vulnerable however it’s defined for me. And despite having the tools to appropriately release emotions. I don’t and I don’t think I’ll ever fully understand how someone can love me so deeply as you do while also seeing my darkest side. I feel like a child, having to learn what I should have learned years ago. Controlling my temper, communication skills, emotional control, allowing others to express themselves emotionally without taking offense. But you never make me feel childish for learning how to do these things and it’s your efforts that motivate me to become someone better for the both of us. 📸: @fractalpaige_

Elizabeth Montgomery on the set of Bewitched, 1960’s.
In an interview with The Advocate, Montgomery commented on the show’s resonance within queer communities:
We talked about it on the set that this was about people not being allowed to be what they really are. If you think about it, Bewitched is about repression in general and all the frustration and trouble it can cause. It was a neat message to get across to people at that time in a subtle way.
