Incredibly powerful imagery.
Of course, everyone interprets art from their own perspective.
The first thing that came to my mind was friends who had lost lovers to AIDS in the 1980s/90s and were turned away from funerals because, even though their relationships were based on love and commitment, they were not married. A lot of that happened.

Good point.

Last week, TWELVE people attacked a gay couple walking down a #Philly street.
The suspects claim that it was a “mutual fight”. Are we expected to believe that two gay men picked a fight with twelve strangers?
So yeah. A straight couple can dry hump in public, but a gay couple can’t walk down the street without fear of being beat nearly to death!

And then I saw that they left a note on the bed, so I went over to take a look at it and

My mum is the best 

Whenever I see this I think well what if you weren’t gay and you came home one day to this

Good point. We like to encourage acceptance, but what if?

Map: Dozens of countries still punish homosexuality with prison and death
Lawmakers in Gambia recently passed a bill that would increase the country’s punishment for some homosexual acts to life imprisonment, reports the Associated Press.
The bill, which reportedly contains language similar to Uganda’s struck-down anti-gay law, now awaits the approval of Gambia President Yahya Jammeh, who’s been openly hostile to the LGBT community in the past. In 2008, he demanded gays and lesbians leave the country or risk having their heads cut off. In February, Jammeh said on state television, “We will fight these vermins called homosexuals or gays the same way we are fighting malaria-causing mosquitoes, if not more aggressively.”
While the actions and comments of Gambia’s leaders are shocking, they are far from alone in

I really fucking hate people right about now!

Up to 12 suspects sought in Center City Philadelphia hate crime

via 6abc.com

This group of cowards beat two gay men nearly to death! Twelve of them ganged up on two!

Philadelphia police say as many as 12 suspects are being sought for an assault in Center City that is being characterized as a hate crime.


The incident happened at 10:45 p.m. on Thursday, September 11th near Rittenhouse Square.

Investigators say the victims, a 28-year-old man and a 27-year-old man, were on the 1600 block of Chancellor Street when they were approached by a group of ‘unknown males and females.’



The group approached and, according to police, ‘made disparaging remarks about their sexual orientation.’

The group then pounced, with some of the suspects holding the victims while others punched them in the face, head and chest.

One of the victims dropped a bag containing a cell phone, wallet and credit cards.



As police approached the scene, investigators say one of the suspects picked up the bag as the group fled.

Both victims were taken to the hospital with multiple injuries. Police say one victim was treated for fractures and deep lacerations to his face requiring surgery and his jaw wired shut.

Philadelphia police described the suspects as “a group of approximately 10-12 white male and females all in their early 20’s “clean cut” and well dressed. One suspect was described as having a husky build, brown hair, wearing a brown shirt and shorts.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Philadelphia Police at 215.686.TIPS (8477), text a tip to PPD TIP or 773847 or visit PhillyPolice.com.

Remember that online fundraiser to build a pro-LGBT billboard in the Westboro Baptist Church’s hometown? It worked. Feast your eyes on the “God Loves Gays” billboard, standing proud in Topeka, Kansas for all to see. If any additional funding comes through, it will be used for bus ads in Topeka, donations to LGBT youth organizations, and possibly a similar billboard in Utah. Bless. (via the Huffington Post)

This is a brilliant idea!

But… I made the mistake of commenting on the "God Loves Gays" Billboard Project youtube video page and oh. my. god. the crazies came out of the woodwork! One tried to change the dialogue to an argument over the existence of God which, in my opinion, is irrelevant to this project.

If you can, please donate to help put up more of these billboards areound the U.S.
