Two brides have become two of the most kickass women in the world by marrying to protest against homophobia in Russia.
Alina Davis, a 23-year-old trans woman, and Allison Brooks, her 19-year-old partner, donned matching white floor-length bridal gowns and married at a civil registry office earlier this month.
As Davis is still legally regarded as male, the office had no choice but to hand them a marriage certificate.
The couple said officials chided them, and appeared to be violent.
‘She called us the shame of the family and said we need medical treatment … I was afraid my pussycat [an affectionate pet name in Russian] would beat the fuck out of her,’ Davis said on her VK page.
But the couple were allowed to sign the papers, meaning a gay couple in Russia are legally recognized as married – even if it’s through a loophole. ‘This is an important precedent for Russia,’ Davis said.
Russia banned same-sex marriage and outlawed ‘gay propaganda’ in 2013.


holy jesus look at these two warrior princesses
they are my heroes
YOU GO GIRLS

"Oh, you don’t wanna recognize my gender? Okay then lol guess you have to recognize my marriage"
that is amazing

TRANS EXCELLENCE

Okay but other reports state that Alina identifies as androgyne but feels more comfortable as a woman, it definitely is trans excellence but the label she uses is not reported correctly here.

Thanks for the info! (This means it’s not only trans excellence but also NONBINARY EXCELLENCE YEAH!)

If they can raise 17k for Dashcon, we can raise 17k for homeless LGBTQ youth.

17000dollars:

Recently, the admins of a fan-based Tumblr convention, Dashcon 2014, ran into some trouble.  Allegedly, the staff of the hotel that was hosting their convention demanded to be paid 17,000 dollars, or else they would shut down Dashcon.  The Dashcon admins responded by asking the community to raise 17,000 dollars by the end of the night — and so they did.  The convention went on.  

This has upset quite a few people, many of whom have pointed out that Tumblr users united to fundraise for a convention, but not to raise money for other causes.  A lot of these posts have specifically referenced poverty, homelessness, and disadvantaged members of the queer community; in particular, many people have talked about homeless LGBTQ youth.  Why couldn’t we have raised 17,000 dollars for them?  

Well, we can.  So let’s do it.  

The Ali Forney Center in NYC is an organization for homeless LGBTQ youth that provides housing, food, showers, clothing, primary medical care, mental health care, HIV/STI screening and treatment, substance abuse support, street outreach, employment/education assistance programs, training for adult care providers, and more.  They’ve been doing great work for about 12 years now, and though they were hit pretty hard by Hurricane Sandy a few years back (x), they’ve never stopped working to do everything they can to directly help the most vulnerable members of the queer community.  

I’ve created an online fundraising page directly through the Ali Forney Center, so no sketchy private individuals will be handling donation money.  

Let’s prove that we can come together for more than bad conventions and potato salad Kickstarters.  Homeless LGBTQ youth deserve better than being used as props in arguments, so here’s our chance to show that we do care enough to raise money for people who desperately need support. 

(Plus, if you donate, you can have an extra hour in the ball pit.  We promise.)  

Our goal is 17,000 dollars.  Click here to visit the page and donate!

I might look into this place…

I went to church with my family tonight and the pastor said something that I think every Christian should hear

  • Pastor: Now, according to a few passages in the bible, homosexuality is a sin.
  • Couple of older males in the audience: Amen!
  • Pastor: Now, wait, I'm not finished.
  • Pastor: You know what else the bible defines as a sin? Divorce.
  • -uncomfortable silence-
  • Pastor: There are countless passages that talk about how divorce is wrong, and that there are consequences to getting a divorce, such as the wife should be stoned.
  • Pastor: Yet, I witnessed a divorce just this morning. And I gotta tell you, it was heartbreaking, but I definitely didn't attempt to throw rocks at the wife, even though she was the one who filed for divorce.
  • Pastor: We choose to overlook the consequences of divorce because time has proven that they're inhumane and cruel.
  • Pastor: The bible doesn't say anything about the consequences of a homosexual lifestyle. Yet, we seem to be spearheading a campaign to ruin the lives of people we don't even know.
  • -the pastor shifts a few notes around-
  • Pastor: The bible states to love thy neighbor. That's it. There are no other rules or restrictions to that passage.
  • Pastor: So, we as a church family have to support equality with a smile on our face. THAT is the true Christian way.

(Just a Few of) The Federal Benefits of Marriage Equality

What we didn’t have yesterday.

Reblogged from Shameless Secrets
The human person, made in the image and likeness of God, can hardly be adequately described by a reductionist reference to his or her sexual orientation. Every one living on the face of the earth has personal problems and difficulties, but challenges to growth, strengths, talents and gifts as well. Today, the Church provides a badly needed context for the care of the human person when she refuses to consider the person as a “heterosexual” or a “homosexual” and insists that every person has a fundamental Identity: the creature of God, and by grace, his child and heir to eternal life.
— Pope John Paul II
