1,500 rally for Mark Carson in NYC - It was New York City’s largest LGBT rally in years, according to organizers. On Monday at least 1,500 people showed up to honor the life of Mark Carson and make a stand against the hate that led to his death. Carson was an openly gay 32-year-old black man who was shot and killed over the weekend in what authorities are investigating as an anti-gay hate crime.
The randomness of Carson’s death has shocked the city’s LGBT community. “Mark is not going to die in vain. We are not going to get beat up in vain,” one rally participant told Mother Jones. “Gay rights, we’re still fighting for them, and the fight is not over. We need to protect each other.”
So, I have promised myself that I would buy shoes with this paycheck since I have ran through my flats, and I am down to just my converse (and one pair of loafers that I’m still breaking in). I have a $20 giftcard sitting in my amazon acct, so that will offset some of the cost. Help me choose!

(Fun fact! I was actually torn between this loafer and another loafer from the same brand, but with a cap toe).
Okay, if any of you care: Send me a message or reply here. Thanks!
I think that tumblr quote, “you can pretend like i dont exist but i still made you whimper like a little bitch when you were about to cum” is really tacky and disgusting.
I would like to go to Provincetown around Pride at least once, but that’s definitely not going to happen this year.
Ah well, I still have the rest of Pride in Greater Boston to attend. Currently thinking of attending this costume party next Thursday as Slash since he’s easy to dress as. Except for the leather jacket part…
Random Access Memories needs to be on Spotify like right this second.
Holy shit, Miley Cyrus is so annoyingly try-hard and basic. How do you all stand her.
I’ve seen a lot of this on Tumblr lately, so this is for all of you (including me) who want to run around in jean shorts all summer but feel like you can’t because of some intangible socially conscribed idea of what bare legs are ‘supposed’ to look like.
(Of course, some people have their own perfectly good reasons for wanting to cover up, and that’s just as fine).
Rocking shorts and skirts this summer.
Showing off my tattoos and stubble and scars.
I’m struggling with this so hard right now. I can’t even bring myself to walk down the stairs in shorts in my own damn apartment.
she wants the d(ecent representation of queer characters within mainstream media without their plot being reduced to said sexuality)
I got all ready to get up and go out and explore a neighborhood because why not. Took my phone off the charger and watched the battery drop from 100% to 62% in 11 minutes. Mind you, it’s been plugged in for over twelve hours.
Welp, 5 minute walk to the pond it is.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about having hairy legs and pits and dermatilliomania ravaged skin is that when someone really wants you, they won’t give a shit about what you look like. If they like you; then they like you.
