"It gets complicated when you bring religion into the equation. Technically, Jews and episcopalians are supposed to be gay-friendly but it's hard to really know how that applies to your own parents. Like, you read about these gay kids with really churchy Catholic parents, and the parents end up doing Pride Parades and everythin. And then you hear about parents who are totally fine with homosexuality, but can't handle it when their own kid comes out. You just never know." #gilbertosreadinglist #lovesimon #gaystories #queerstories #gayromanceswithahappyending

PART 2 IT WAS MY MOTHER @teresita.florendo THAT HELD ME WHILE I WAS IN TEARS, crying about my dismay and experience of that moment. She held me and said your are greater you are stronger you are the best you are my love. Although, we did have our moments...etc. (another chapter) But I didn’t believe that, I went down a rabbit hole of self destructive behavior, abuse of self and by others, drug addiction, self medicating, mental illness #schizoeffective no self esteem or value for myself or my culture. I renounced my culture and I was ashamed. I asked myself, I wish I was white, it would be better. SAD SAD SAD. Realizing that being #Asian #api as well posed it’s difficulties in this community. I don’t like to call it a community. It’s divided #coldhearted #shade #elitist #entitled #homonormative #ciswhitescum with their #poc cronies that pander to their every desire and #fetish #truth #queerstories #pilipinx #queerpilipinx #selfielover #ilive #ilove #ibe #fullheart of #bleeding #blessedintentions #thewickedseek with #daggersout #blessedarethemeekfortheyshallinherittheearth

PART 1 Now you see me.... am I more desirable to you now that I can flex a slimmer version of me with more definition like that cut shoulder flexin but do you really see me tho. See me..... #wallsonfire #walls #isolation and #distance #ostracized by my so called #lgbtqia #community seems like a #delusion to me. It’s real, the moment I came to the #castro as a #queerteen they put up walls and bullied me. The so called youth group that I went to for support and to be a part of something pushed me away. #bullies #bullshit #divas with a #premadonna #attitudeproblem projecting their shit on me. I didn’t realize at that time that coming out would be harder in the lgbtqia community in San Francisco than it would be with my own family. #truth #queerstories #pilipinx #queerpilipinx #selfielover #ilive #ilove #ibe #fullheart of #bleeding #blessedintentions #thewickedseek with #daggersout #blessedarethemeekfortheyshallinherittheearth

So this week my confidence was struck by yet another blow as @bristolprize announced their longlist and my story was nowhere to be seen. Not even as a notable contender. I understand that rejection is a big part of launching a writing career but I was really hoping for a little lift in spirit. It knocked me back but I truly congratulate everybody that did make it through and want to thank my wonderfully patient boyfriend (ever-so-happily pictured here in Amsterdam) for picking me up out of the low and convincing me not to give up. It’s difficult living with a writer sometimes! 😬😬😬 I’m going to take a tiny, little, restorative rest from writing now to focus on building my confidence and come back with full vigour very soon! ❤️❤️❤️ @bisarr_konstpaus

This is me in Berlin on 2013. Being away from home enabled me to let my stubble grow and feel safe in a gender-nonconforming state. I can truly say this was a life-changing experience. The photo here is one out of 150 that will appear in my upcoming artist book. Pre-order it and contribute to its publication.

Look at this little homo! Some people don’t believe me when I say I knew who I was long before I knew what queer even was. I was a child in second grade, Jared Aldridge was the crush of my life (at the moment) and I attempted to share a cookie with him on the playground after he brought puppies for Show’n tell. He TOOK MY COOKIE and didn’t even share it with me!!! That was my first heartbreak, in second grade realizing the other boys weren’t like me and they didn’t want to be. I wanted nail polish, lipstick and bright pink Lisa Frank backpacks. I wanted toys with glitter and tassels, shiny beads on my clothes and purple light up sandals! I’ve been a queer since I was young, and even through hiding it from cishet friends created an internal battle I’m glad I learned to love myself. I wish I had someone like me to look up to when I was young. That’s why I choose to always live my life proud and out loud; you never know when a baby queer is watching and hoping to be as bold as we can. ❤️🧡💛💛💙💜🖤💖 I wouldn’t have been able to do it without @shmil327 and @debbie_millertime supporting me from Elementary school all the way until now. That’s family, that’s love. If your birth family can’t love you, find the family and friends that will, it’s worth it and we all deserve it. #gay #instagay #queer #love #family #Glitter #queerstories #chosenfamily #tbt #throwbackthursday

First draft of #TheBraMitzvah is coming along quite nicely. I found myself blocked for a while (yeah, haven’t been going through a lot lately. Hah) now, I stopped critiquing my formatting skills and just kept writing. It’s freeing to just get these words down and start to see these characters who have been lingering in my head, begin to come to life. #shortfilm #filmmaking #Queerstories

Meet @jistrangeway A film director, author, and poet. Strangeway creates from the margins of gender, orientation, and circumstance. Her stories ride the shoulders of the misunderstood anti-hero, exploring the crash zones between society and self, the physical and the existential. Strangeway embraces the female-centric coming-of-age genre. Her LGBTQ short film Nune draws on the sacred bond of first love. Her unique cinematic style also emerges in her written work, Red as Blue. This hybrid-graphic novel introduces YA readers to a unique cross-genre aesthetic. As noted by AfterEllen, it’s “an addictive, eclectic fusion of styles and identity that blazes a brand-new path for storytelling.” Red as Blue is about two teens struggling to transcend forbidden love in the culture-clash of the 1980s. Strangeway’s portrayal of youth divided between power and love brings relevance and prophecy in this modern-day LGBTQ West Side Story on the verge of Bowling for Columbine. Strangeway’s work is an unconventional call to action. Her words are for the dreamers and idealists. Definitely check out her other work at well @nunethemovie @redasblue (redasblue.com) and if you want to find out more visit jistrangeway.com

Who would have thought that meeting in Miami would years later end in producing a podcast. Who would have thought that a reunited friendship would lead us to the heart and soul of our podcast. When we hear ourselves in stories, regardless of where we are in our journeys, we are connected. Our connections bring us strength and courage, pride and visibility. They empower us with all we need to succeed together. #QueerClearConnected #GetClear #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtpride #lgbtcommunity #lesbian #bisexual #queer #lesbiansofig #bisexualsofig #queerwomen #empoweringwomen #drivenwomen #queerstories #queervoices #🏳️‍🌈 #pride #pridemonth #pridemonth2018

Beyond the larger number of LGBT characters, what really differentiates this season of Dear White People is the normalcy of their queerness: They’re supporting characters, cameos, leads, and antagonists—not punch lines or plot devices. And they all play an important role in adding nuance to a show that’s already breaking ground for diversity in Hollywood and feeding audiences desperate to see themselves fully reflected on the small screen.

On Tuesday, some of the QAF Bindlefam came thru to support Ely’s staged reading of DRIVEN, a play by Fil-Am playwright and East Palo Alto native, Boni Alvarez! It was hosted by the historic Theatre Rhino and featured other Bindlefam (Alan Quismorio, Manny Cabrera, and Aaron Orpilla). Not only do we need to demand and create representation, but it’s also so important for us as a Filipino arts community to show up and support each other when the opportunities arise. I can’t get over how beautifully written this play is and how it touches upon stories that are hardly heard. 🤞🏼 that Theatre Rhino mounts this for their next season! 😉 • • • #stagedreading #sfthtr #bayareatheatre #filamtheatre #filipinosintheatre #bayareafilipinos #pocactors #queerstories #lgbtq #representationmatters #bindlefam #theatrerhinoceros #lbgtqtheatre #queertheatre #latergram #supportyourhomies #bonialvarez #queerasfam #qtpoc

This is @hipstergardener posting for #countryqueers! I live in the small town of Bluffton, GA in the southwest corner of the state—think near Florida and near Alabama. Being born and raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, I never imagined that life would bring me to the rural Deep South. I am proud to say that Bluffton, GA is an incredibly unique place where I’ve found community, support, and good work. Looking forward to giving y’all a glimpse into my experience #queerstories #regenerativeagriculture #yallmeansall

We have a novel idea for Hollywood- cast trans actors for trans roles, perhaps? Scarlett Johansson is under fire for being cast to star in "Rub & Tug" as Dante "Tex" Gill, a trans man known for running a string of massage parlors in Pittsburgh that were fronts for prostitution in the 70s and 80s. Johansson released a flippant response to Bustle : "Tell them that they can be directed to Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto, and Felicity Huffman's reps for comment." Those three cisgender actors played transgender characters in "Transparent," "Dallas Buyers Club" and "Transamerica," respectively. #lgbt #lgbtqia #lgbtq #trans #cis #Transgender #queer #representation #Noneonrecord #Queer #QueerStories

An interesting thing one experiences every now and then while traveling, and at times not even once in a life time is the realization that the door to one's mind should always be open for the present, the new and the positive, irrespective of the situation one is in. Coz many a times the tiny glimpses of the journey we turn our faces from, are more rewarding than the destination. This is a road side glimpse of the enormous Dhauladhar Mountain Range on the way to Mandi from Kangra (NH20). . #dhauladharrange #highwaystories #indianhighways #mountaindiaries #weclimbmountains #kangravalley #journeyphotography #mountainphotography #lensgasm #naturephotography #trip #naturephotographer #travelstories #expeditionphotographer #thegreathimalayas #natgeostudentexpeditions #exploringthehimalayas #queerstories #_travellersofindia #travelindia #travelhimachal #photographersofindia #mobilephotography #motogphotography #trekkingstories #travelenthusiast #traveldiaries #mountainspeak #exploringmountains #explorerkv @natgeotravellerindia @travelbloggeres @travelers.of.india @travellingthroughtheworld @travelandleisure

If you haven't watched @hannah_gadsby 's Netflix special, I highly recommend you do. I've never quite seen someone perfectly execute rising tension, defusing it with humour, then leaving on such a powerful, thought provoking message at the end. I wanted it to go on for another hour. I wanted to hug her, cry with her, salute her, and shout from the rooftops throughout her set. The one quote that honesty, as a parent of a boy and two girls, I had to internalize was this one, I just had to make it into an image. Along with this, the fact that we apologize when we misgender someone so profusely, as if it is a grave sin to merely suggest someone might be ANOTHER TYPE OF HUMAN. Why are we so offended when someone mistakes us for another gender? Especially a man being mistaken for a woman - the horror!! It's almost like we value men higher than women and how dare we suggest a man has features that resemble the "lesser" sex. Anyway. I am left feeling educated, comforted by the laughter, emotional for her story, and emboldened by her message. We must do better. ✊ @emmawise18 #feminismisforeverybody #angryfeminist #oursensitivityisourstrength #connectionistheanswer #netflixmovies #simplyamazed #thankyouforsharingyourstory #inclusivefeminism #intersectionalfeminism #roomforeverybody #queerstories

I am absolutely blown away by this comedian. She made me laugh and cry in the span of an hour. I have always seen comic routines as escapism but she reinvents the form. #hannahgadsby has given me hope, and many things to reflect on. #queerstories are #ourstories

I started this volume because I felt there were things in my community and country that needed to be talked about. This series of photos was suppose to be an example of how our current political climate feels... like everything is blowing up in our faces. Last week was TOUGH. I felt like everyday there was something new going on and I couldn’t keep up. Instead of going to my kitchen, I loafed. I bought things that don’t serve me. Items high in sugar and ready made. I disrespected myself. And this morning I woke up and felt E X H A U S T E D. We must remember to not get lost in the articles or dark corners of our mind. We must continue to fight in ways that works for us, as people - for our own mental stability. Tonight, I will cook for myself because I know when I do that, I feel grateful to be alive. 📸 @geremyc #theaphrodisiackitchen #vegan #queerstories #plantbased

🏳️‍🌈 I read, watched and listened to all the queer things for Pride month and I only made a dent in my list. I appreciate everyone’s suggestions when I asked for recs and that came up in other discussions, and will happily continue to make my way through the list (but might let some straight stories slip in now and then). What great LGBTQIA books, movies, music, etc did you get to this month? This is the list I created for the month, asterisks by things I actually got to. #queer #lgbtqia #pride #lesbian #gay #queerstories #queercontent #queermedia #queercontentchallenge #queerrepresentation #lgbtstories #lesbianstories #30daysofqueer #gaystories #bi #trans #pride2018

I love everything about this article on @the.root . I also grew up knowing other gay folk as “family” and these are people who rode with me hard and were truly an extension of me. I wasn’t ostracized by my blood family, but without this family of queers like me, I honestly don’t know who I’d be or how I would have been able to live my truth. These stories and our presence are vital. Do we use the term “family” enough? Do you use it to describe your queer community? #queer #lgbt #queerstories #family #love #loveislove #theroot #wanderingsoup #blacklesbian #qwoc #lesbiansofcolor #supportqwoc #prideeveryday

I took myself off for a solo cinema date last night to finally see Love, Simon. To be completely honest, I can’t say that it’s a story that I haven’t seen or heard a million times before but I absolutely love the fact that it has made it huge on the mainstream market because that means that some people are seeing these stories for the first time. And for kids to have these stories to refer to is amazing! As hungry as I am for new stories, I can’t deny that steps forward such as this are crucial! ❤️❤️❤️

Yet another bloody fantastic podcast from Will Young and Chris Sweeney, discussing the many many issues that the queer community face every day! It is so candid and so casual and covers topics such as anxiety, mental health, addiction, prostitution, sexual fluidity, gender fluidity, queer stigmas and so much more! Honestly absolutely loving it! Well done guys! One of my favourite episodes was with Ben Roberts, who talks about the need for queer literature that doesn’t simply focus on sexuality but on the other complex issues in our lives. Which is exactly the reason that I write the way I do!! Can’t wait for more and you must all have a listen! @homosapienspodcast ❤️❤️❤️
