1/ Here’s a 🧵 of all the endorsements I’ve found for @PeteButtigieg, organized chronologically. If I accidentally omit anyone, I’ll add them at the end. I’ll also add new endorsements as they’re announced.
Thank you, endorsers!
HURRAY FOR #TeamPete!

2/ I believe @SteveGrossmanMA became the first to endorse #Pete2020, on 4/11. He is a former DNC Chair, former Massachusetts State Treasurer, and current CEO of the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City, a non-profit that trains inner-city entrepreneurs.

3/ Grossman called Pete “a Midwestern, down-to-earth, smart, savvy, in-touch candidate” who can flip industrial states. “My concern is the future of the US... I think Pete has the capacity to be the beacon for an awful lot of people who really feel a deep, deep sense of concern.”

(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.

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.

50 years ago today, demonstrators fought back after New York police raided the Stonewall Inn, a refuge for the LGBTQ community.

Known as the #Stonewall uprising, it was led by gay and transgender people of color.

The demonstrations galvanized the modern LGBTQ rights movement.
At the time of the #Stonewall riots:

▪️ No U.S. laws protected gay people from discrimination
▪️ Homosexuality was still classified as a mental disorder
▪️ LGBTQ+ people could be arrested for dancing together, touching or not wearing enough 'gender-appropriate' clothing
It took 50 years for the New York Police Department to apologize for raiding the #Stonewall Inn in 1969 — during which it arrested and beat dozens of patrons and employees — admitting its actions were "discriminatory and oppressive."

Nous sommes en compagnie de Docteur Josselin Tricou, spécialiste des masculinités dans le clergé et tout juste thésard (bravo !) et @DrKpote, travailleur social et chroniqueur chez Causette.
Première question : "pourquoi mettre un décolleté si ce n'est pas pour attirer les hommes ?"

What a stunningly homophobic & utterly out of touch piece. The author wants gay people to stop thinking we deserve equal rights & just be nicer to her fellow bigots. Happy #Pride

I imagine @kathrynlopez in 1965 would be telling MLK and John Lewis that they should just find another lunch counter and there's nothing wrong with sitting in the back of the bus.
Stop acting like it's ok to discriminate against an entire group of people because of your bigotry.
In my latest piece for @damemagazine I wrote about #LGBTQ history since #Stonewall but also about how LGBTQ people are still under threat. Embedded in the piece are a dozen news stories I've reported on discrimination and violence against LGBTQ people. damemagazine.com/2019/06/24/50-…

To celebrate #PrideMonth, we have a special moment of our own to share… The first time a Pride flag has ever flown from our @NewYorkFed offices. 🏳️‍🌈 #MomentsOfPride #Pride #WorldPride #Stonewall50
Hi, I’m Kathi. I grew up a military brat and lived all over, including Tunisia & Bolivia. I’m grateful for the exposure to different cultures and social settings as I grew up. I believe it helped me understand myself and others in more profound ways. #MomentsOfPride #Stonewall50
The basis of the LGBTQ+ community is so fundamentally basic to human nature: equality, self-love, and acceptance. I find it no coincidence that synonyms of the word ‘gay’ are cheerful, jolly, and vivacious. It’s a human right to live an enjoyable life. #MomentsOfPride #PrideMonth

1/ Happy #PrideMonth!

This year, @HRC is celebrating 50 years of #Pride, and two momentous anniversaries in #LGBTQ history: the 50th anniversary of the uprising at #Stonewall in 1969 and the first Pride parade a year later. #Stonewall50 #Pride2019
2/ In the earliest hours of June 28, 1969, a group of LGBTQ people reached their tipping point. They were peacefully enjoying the evening at the #Stonewall Inn in New York City when police raided the bar and started hauling out the patrons.
3/ No longer willing to take the harassment and discrimination, the LGBTQ individuals at #Stonewall fought back. Their protest lasted six days … and sparked a movement that is still building today. #Pride2019

This doesn't work in a crisis. In the Reagan/Bush years I was getting arrested in protests because my friends--men your age and younger--were dying.
My activism and that of other ACT-UP, Queer Nation and Lavender Menace people like me didn' t allow for politeness. So...no.
1/
While I am thrilled that that work we did to save lives & gain rights has allowed you to be married, in the military & run for president, @PeteButtigieg, your not recognizing that many of us do not have white, male or cis privilege is unsettling. #LGBTQ people are still dying.
2/
The trans ban is real. Efforts to roll back healthcare for #LGBTQ people is real. The exponential rise in hate crimes against us--all real. It's essential you recognize that platitudes when black people are being shot, women are having their bodily autonomy revoked won't work.

Bueno, «locas, mariconas», ahora que ya ha empezado el mes del #Orgullo voy a contaros la historia de los #MariconesDeAntaño que montaron la primera manifestación en nuestro país, el 26 de julio de 1977 en Barcelona, y lo que pasó en ella. ¡Hilo va!
Antes de empezar quiero recordaros qué cosas habían pasado desde que nació el «movimiento #LGTB» en España hasta que se produjo esta mani. Para ello es imprescindible conocer a nuestro primer activista: Armand de Fluvià. Ya os hablé una vez sobre él:
En 1975 muere Franco, y el antiguo Movimiento Español de Liberación Homosexual (MELH) decide convertirse en algo diferente: el @fagc_catalunya. El movimiento #LGTB sale de la clandestinidad y quiere ser un movimiento de masas que agrupe a más gente que un concierto de Beyoncé.
