Okay, Tumblr, let’s make this go viral. You all know that representation in the media is desperately needed, and this game is delivering what many of the big-name games haven’t. Pumpkin Online is made by a development team headed by an African-American woman and they’re aiming to make this game as inclusive and friendly as possible. This is a farming/romance sim mixed up with an adventure MMORPG and made incredibly diverse.

You want to play a non-binary character? You got it! You want a range of races in your NPC neighbors? Done! Clothing choices and body features not restricted by gender? It’s in there! Relationships in no way affected by gender or lack of gender? Yes, that too!

Let’s get this thing going viral and help promote the Kickstarter (link in the article) so that everyone gets the chance to play the character they want to play. Reblog buttons, do your thing!

During World War II, Josephine Baker served with the French Red Cross and was an active member of the French resistance movement. Using her career as a cover Baker became an intelligence agent, carrying secret messages written in invisible ink on her sheet music. She was awarded the Croix de Guerre, and received a Medal of the Resistance in 1946. In 1961 she received the highest French honor, the Legion d’Honneur awarded by then President Charles de Gaulle.

Our loss, U.S.A….

If you don’t admire the shit out of J. Baker, who was also pretty openly bisexual and adopted NINETEEN children in addition to the badassery mentioned above, I want you to go sit in the corner and think about your life choices.

um she was also a huge civil rights activist and her refusal to perform for segregated audiences at major clubs that were fallin over themselves to book her helped de-segregate vegas performance venues

aaaand she had a pet cheetah

[Washington Post]: Is Anna Paquin’s bisexuality ‘past tense’ now that she is married to Stephen Moyer?

are you actually kidding me right now

(it’s worth saying that the rest of the article was spent explaining bisexuality in an educated and respectful manner)

Being bisexual is what you are, not what you do.

You can be monogamously married to your one and only sweetheart (of whatever sex/gender), a celibate cloistered nun, a swinging single playing the field, happily biromantically asexual, a tween who has never been kissed (yet!), or living in poly paradise and still be bisexual

How does feel to be queer in India?

"I am more than just a physical body. I am more than the labels. I am just like you."

The Indian LGBT community is horriblyt marginalised. Not just by cultural prejudices, but because the recent upholding of of a law that criminalises homosexual behaviour. This has set the LGBT movement back by decades.

In this strong, short video, some brave people share what it is like to be gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender in India today.
