This #LGBTQEqualityDay we’re celebrating victories that bring justice to LGBTQ+ communities across the nation and in WA state. WA has a long history, including being one of the first states to legalize same-sex marriage, and every year we keep pushing for more equality for all.
This #waleg session, we passed an anti-bullying law for trans students, required nonbinary options for state records, strengthened our laws against hate crimes & established the WA state LGBTQ Commission to address the unique obstacles this community encounters. #LGBTQEqualityDay
In WA, we know the diversity of our people makes us stronger. This #LGBTQEqualityDay we celebrate the steps we have taken to protect that diversity and reaffirm our commitment to fight for equality for all Washingtonians. 🏳️‍🌈 #PrideMonth2019

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

FIFTY YEARS OF PRIDE

Today: Homeless LGBT youth

In this thread, I’m going to do something a little different. I’m going to share a couple of personal stories on LGBT youth, followed by resources for LGBT youth facing homelessness/are homeless

Jack’s story from #NationalComingOutDay 2018—

Jack had a life altering impact on me. As an ally, it wasn’t even a hesitation to NOT take him in.
Jack didn’t have a support system & would’ve been homeless w/out help for coming out to his mother.
#Pride2019
I am happy to report that Jack’s story had a good outcome. Jack has moved to another state into his accepting father’s home. He is in college and currently pursuing his passion in architecture.
I’m proud to this amazing kid’s surrogate, bonus mom.

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
