Is everyone clear on what’s going on in Russia with LGBTQ peoples. CAUSE YOU SHOULD BE. What’s going on is absolutely horrifically disgusting and it turns my stomach. Russia is home to people just like you and me except their government is telling them how they can and cannot live and who they can and cannot LOVE. This is heartbreaking. Ask yourself how you can help our Russian brothers and sisters. Lets not be quiet about this. We can all help.
Ways you can help:

BOYCOTT STOLI VODKA!!
LETS DO THIS BY THE MILLIONS.
It is just appalling to see how Russian youth are being brainwashed into a doctrine of hatred! Our gay Tumblr community must know what is happening to our brothers and sisters in Russia. Russia wants to be seen as a progressive country by hosting the Olympics, but with human rights being violated this way, Russia only appears barbaric to the free world and any right thinking person. PLEASE, AT LEAST RE-BLOG THIS.
Portia Degeneres appreciation post
Portia Degeneres (formally Portia de Rossi) is an Australian turned American actress and model. She is well known for her role in Arrested Development, Ally McBeal and of course, her famous relationship to tv show host, Ellen Degeneres.
Portia Degeneres has suffered through anorexia and bulimia and published a book titled “Unbearable Lightness” that details the hard times she has had. The book goes into great detail about how much she struggled to accept and be open about her sexual orientation. As a young, lesbian actress she remained in the closet, convinced it was the only way to keep her career.
She was engaged to a man and dated lots of guys so the media did not suspect her sexual orientation. She lived a very secret life that even she struggled to accept. When the media first posted images of her and her then girlfriend, she denied that reports and told everyone that she was straight.
She is a wonderful example for young girls who are struggling with mental illness, as well as their sexual identity. She has come through the other end a well rounded, healthy, happy person who has a wonderful relationship and is no longer fearful of how she is perceived by others.
This woman struggled greatly with her sexual orientation, just like we all do, and came out the other end as such a positive, strong role model. It’s a shame that there are people in the public eye who are still scared to be out and open. It is because of so many of these people that LGBT youth feel they are not alone.
Portia de Rossi/Portia Degeneres is someone I admire greatly. Her book changed my perspective on so many things.

There is an overemphasis on coming out
and not enough on what happens when you do.
Some people who aren’t fortunate enough to come from loving families or have enough money to sustain themselves deal with very harsh realities not depicted in the media.
Ellen Page came out, Jodie Foster is…
And we deserve to experience love fully, equally, without shame and without compromise. (x)
People be calling cars and ships and America “she” but when a trans women asks for female pronouns people be like no
