Google's October FEC filing is up, showing us which American politicians the company elected to give money to last month. We start out strong with a $1,500 donation to Mitch McConnell on September 30
There's also a $5,000 donation from Google to Mike Crapo's "Freedom Fund" which also gives to Mitch McConnell, along with a selection of other Republican incumbents
Google made a maximum $5,000 donation to Susan Collins of Maine, beloved by Google employees for her role in the Kavanaugh hearings. I actually find these donations way worse than Google's gifts to the hard right, because control of the Senate hinges on close elections like hers

Live tweeting re-watch of #MainPremKiDiwaniHoon henceforth to be referred to as #MPKDH

First 5 minutes, and this college clearly never had a #POSH training because a student has plopped into a professor's lap and the professor is telling the girls they'll clear the exams
And of course the #electricguitar is connected to

Last year on #NationalComingOutDay, a young man I know had a life altering effect on me when he became a statistic.

25% of youth who come out to their family immediately become homeless. If you’re POC, the statistic is higher.

Here’s Jack’s story from #NationalComingOutDay 2018
Last Sunday— October 6, 1998 was the 21st anniversary of the murder of Matthew Shepherd. He was driven to a remote, rural area in WY, robbed, pistol-whipped, tied to a fence, tortured & left to die all because he was gay.

He would’ve been 42 years old.

Had the world had not known Matthew Shepherd & seen how hate let him be beaten, bruised & forgotten to die on a fence post—or Jack become homeless— days like #NationalComingOutDay or #Pride month wouldn’t need to exist.

I long for the day when there is no need to declare this.

This is really starting to piss me off. #Trudeau literally created the most diverse cabinet in the history of #Canada, giving #POC the highest jobs in the country. He’s welcomed #Syrian refugees, he’s increased funding to #Indigenous people, he’s marched with #LGBTQ in #Pride...
...Parades. He’s supported #women’s rights, stood with #feminists & created the most gender balanced cabinet in the history of this country. His record on #humanrights, #multiculturalism & #diversity speaks a feck of a lot louder than some 20 year old photos. Wake up #canada!...
This is not #racism it is character assassination plain & simple. Don’t believe me? Look at Scheer’s record on #multiculturalism, #diversity & #inclusion. Look at the #whitenationalists, #bigots & #racists running in his campaign & ask yourself why they got a pass & JT doesn’t...

In honor of the #Callisto6 finale this weekend, I am going to be posting something I've been meaning to for the last 3-ish weeks or so.

I am running a vanilla 1.14 Minecraft server for the #SuperPunks (if you're interested give me a yell in the fan discord), and did something...
The something being 20-odd #PRIDE flags in the form of Minecraft Banners. Some disclaimers:

There's only so much detail that can be put into a given banner, and I only have so much skill. As much as I would have loved to have a Philly PRIDE banner, it's beyond my abilities atm.
Right now it's basically me and one other person from the #Superpunks/#AuxCrew Discord on the Minecraft server, but other fans are welcome to join.

The server is Whitelisted, and I will only be handing out the IP on the Discord/via IMs. Dragon is dead, and most pets are tamed

I am so tired but here is a picture of when I was not yet tired & tossing a glitter ball in the air while wearing fishnets & rainbow booty shorts & fairy boots at #madtownpride19 today! #pride #queer #madisonwi
I was required to wear a volunteer shirt, so I went all out on the bottom half of my body. 😂🤣😂
Closer look at these fairy boots because they are just so great. 😍

Mich hat diese #Tönnies Geschichte ziemlich aus der Bahn geworfen, muss ich sagen. Beschäftigt mich sehr. Nach langen Grübeleien bin ich zu dem Entschluss gekommen, dass ich meine #Schalke Mitgliedschaft beende, sollte Tönnies im September noch Teil des Aufsichtsrats sein. #S04
Werte und Ideologien sind mir wichtig. Ich bin bewusst Schalke Mitglied, weil ich das Wertemodell sehr stimmig finde und weil ich mich darin gut wiederfinde. Ganz besonders auch deshalb, weil ich mich schon recht lange nur eher selten in direkter Nähe zu Gelsenkirchen aufhalte.
Auch wenn mich der Traditionsgedanke beim Spiel selbst meist nervt, so gehen mir die gesellschaftlichen Aspekte sehr nahe. Die Nähe zum Bergbau betreffend etwa.

This is important: I hope more male footballers join @EkdalAlbin to make the sport less homophobic and more supportive of male players to come out. #LGBTQ #Pride 🏳️‍🌈 h/t @Kibalcic
t bears remembering that the women’s game has a history of openly gay players that the men’s game has yet to catch up with, as I mention here… #LGBTQ 🏳️‍🌈
And here’s a thread I posted after the women’s World Cup that looks into the stark difference in the # of openly gay/bi players in the women’s game vs the men’s #LGBTQ

Kuss-Verbot durch die Polizei am Tag des #CSD in #Siegen.
Ein Thread.

Finde es immer noch krass, dass es scheinbar in Deutschland öffentliche Orte gibt, an denen man sich nicht küssen darf, die Polizei einem das auch noch untersagt.
#si2707 #CSD2019 #Pride @csdsiegen
Zum Hintergrund und derzeitigen Stand:
Am 27.7.2019 fand der #CSDSiegen mit Demonstration und Straßenfest statt.
Entlang der Demoroute hatten auch die Nazis rund um den 3.(irr)weg eine Versammlung gegen "Homopropaganda" und für "gesunde Familien" etc.
(Siehe u.a. @infozentrale)
In der Stadt gab es verschiedene Stände um sich gegen die faschos zu positionieren.
In direkter Nähe am Kölner Tor auch die SPD, auf der anderen Straßenseite der @AStAUniSiegen.
Während der CSD Demo sollte es am Kölner Tor auch ein "kiss-in" geben.

On parle beaucoup, ces temps-ci, de sexe, de genre, de transsexuel et de transgenres. Le préfixe trans (, qui signifie en latin “de l’autre côté”, indique un changement, un passage d’un sexe à un autre ou d’un genre à un autre.

It is good to see @IlhanMN back home in Minnesota, happy, playing and doing what she does best: existing and in so doing, driving racist shits over the edge h/t @mollyhc
Driving racist, misogynist and Islamophobic shits over the edge!
I feel a thread of @ilhanmn happy, existing and driving racist, misogynist and Islamophobic shits over the edge is a great way to celebrate her. This is from when she took part in #Pride on June 24

Google's FEC filing for political donations made in June (#pride month!) is up. We start off strong with $5,000 to ferocious abortion opponent and self-described "David Duke without the baggage" Steve Scalise, who once spoke at a white supremacist rally, he claims, by accident
Here's a $2,500 donation to Ben Sasse's leadership PAC, which in 2018 gave exclusively to Republican senators. If you love Senate obstruction on DACA, the Equality Act, election security... well, so does Google!
Google gave $5,000 to 'One Georgia PAC', which in 2018 gave $324,600 to Senate Republicans exclusively, and the Lone Star Liberty Fund, which gave only to House Republicans.

Dall'amore per la patata a Sasha Grey. L'egocentrismo dell'uomo cis etero va fatto a pezzi, partendo dal rifiuto di cartelli simili ai pride. Non sono al #Pride per te, insicuro uomo etero, né per il tuo cazzo o le tue preferenze pornografiche. Fattene una ragione e sparisci
Giusto per precisare: il problema non è ovviamente né la pornografia né Sasha Grey. Il problema è l'eteroidiozia e i supposti alleati che pongono sé stessi al centro del discorso anziché supportare gli oppressi.

Keep coming back to the first 2 paragraphs of the 1st leaflet published & distributed by the anti-Nazi White Rose Movement whose members were executed in 1943 for peacefully pointing out the inhumanity of their government's actions…

"Nothing is so unworthy of a civilized nation as allowing itself to be "governed" without opposition by an irresponsible clique that has yielded to base instinct. It is certain that today every honest German is ashamed of his government"

"Who among us has any conception of the dimensions of shame that will befall us and our children when one day the veil has fallen from our eyes and the most horrible of crimes - crimes that infinitely outdistance every human measure - reach the light of day?

(Thread) Hey there: it's the last day of #Pride Month, 50 years after #Stonewall, and there's something I'd like to share. This month has been extremely hard, and today seems appropriate for something I've been scared to do for far too long.
I think a lot about how @BreneBrown defines shame: "the intensely painful feeling or experience of believing that we are flawed and therefore unworthy of love and belonging – something we've experienced, done, or failed to do makes us unworthy of connection."
Hosting @1A has brought me into the lives of millions of people. I've been honored to meet lots of our fans, many of whom praise me and the work we do. I'm grateful for that, but it's had an unintended side effect that's forced me to reexamine how I live my life.

Introducing our #WallForACause installation by Brooklyn based queer artist Shanée Benjamin.

The artwork is both a memorial and a celebration of how far the LGBTQ+ community has come, and serves as a reminder of how much more work there is to do. #SeeUsHearUs
1924 - The Society for Human Rights in Chicago is the first recognized gay rights organization in the US. @HRC, @ILGAWORLD and @glaad are at the forefront of the community today.
1925 - "Ma" Rainey, "Mother of Blues," is arrested in her home in Harlem for organizing a lesbian salon. Bessie Smith bails her out of jail the following day.

Don’t talk about #Stonewall50 if you’re not going to support trans ppl.
Don’t celebrate #Stonewall if you’re not going to fight for queer & trans ppl of color.
Don’t claim OUR history if you don’t intend to continue to struggle for freedom & justice for ALL queer & trans folks.
This means supporting sex workers.
This means fighting for disability justice.
This means condemning the prison industrial complex.
This means recognizing cis privilege.
This means no fucking cops & corporations at #Pride.
This means not being content until ALL OF US can live our lives free from racist, sexist, transphobic, homophobic, ableist, classist, xenophobic, anti-Semitic, Islamaphobic violence in a nation that provides the food, housing, education, & healthcare we need to thrive.

E hoje, no dia 28 de junho, dia do #OrgulhoLGBT, fico sabendo da notícia de que o governo de @jairbolsonaro matou o Conselho Nacional de Combate à Discriminação LGBT (CNCD-LGBT). Segue o fio para entender o que era o CNCD e o que aconteceu com ele. #Pride2019 #Pride #Stonewall50
Para quem não sabe, o CNCD-LGBT foi um mecanismo participativo em que representantes da sociedade civil e do governo se reuniam para discutir as políticas públicas LGBT. Ali se fiscalizava o que existia, mas também propunha novas políticas
O CNCD surgiu em 2001 como um conselhão que agregava diversos temas e populações. O tempo passou, outros conselhos específicos foram sendo criados e o CNCD meio que sobrou pra gente. Aí no final de 2010 ele foi reestruturado e se tornou o CNCD-LGBT…

The Stonewall Riots

Tomorrow, June 28th, we celebrate the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. The birth of the modern LGBTQIA rights movement. Today let’s learn what happened and why.

#Pride #Stonewall50
The Stonewall Inn, located at 51 and 53 Christopher Street, along with several other establishments in the city, was owned by the Genovese crime family.
In 1966, three members of the Mafia invested $3,500 to turn the Stonewall Inn into a gay bar, after it had been a restaurant and a nightclub for heterosexuals. Once a week a police officer would collect envelopes of cash as a payoff, as the Stonewall Inn had no liquor license.
