I’m having a lot of body-comp feels over this.
I would put this on my wall.
My jaw literally just dropped. THIS IS THE BEST FUCKING THING I HAVE EVER SEEN.
I will always reblog this <333

In 1973 an arsonist firebombed a gay bar in New Orleans where a Metropolitan Community Church fundraiser was being held.
32 men and women died in the fire.
It remains the deadliest crime against an LGBT population in US history. 40 years later, at long last, the victims’ stories are finally being told.
The Up Stairs Lounge fire is as much a part of the LGBTQ rights story as Stonewall, Harvey Milk, the AIDS Quilt, and Prop 8. It is a story that needs to be told, and it needs to be remembered.
Playwright Wayne Self has written a compelling dramatic musical with a modern score steeped in the jazz and blues of New Orleans to tell the story. A workshop production in San Francisco in February paves the way for a full production this summer.
You can help make that production a reality, and bring Upstairs to New Orleans for the 40th anniversary of the fire this June.
Please signal boost!
no one asked me to do this one i just felt like it WATCH THIS SERIES AND CRY WITH ME
O H M Y GOD
THIS IS THE BEST GUIDELINE I’VE EVER READ
remember no jutsu
Let me clear up a little misconception that’s been going around.
Peter Jackson (and his screenwriters, Phillipa Boyens and Fran Walsh) did not invent much of anything. Thorin’s story comes from Return of the King, Appendix A. The story of the Necromancer comes from the last chapter of The Silmarillion. Radagast also appears in The Silmarillion. Stories of Gondolin appear throughout the Silmarillion, as well as in the Lost Tales and various others of Tolkien’s extensive collected writing.
If you’d like to know more about even the tiniest detail in Tolkien’s world, it’s all there for the reading.
THANK YOU FOR THIS!! This has been such a pet peeve of mine lately. Even though Elrond and Gandalf make a brief reference to Gondolin, it’s still there. And yes, almost everything is featured on the ROTK Appendices, The Unfinished Tales (more specifically at “The Quest of Erebor” chapter) and in some extent on the Silmarillion (“Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age” part). So all of you complaining about PJ ‘making up stuff’ get your facts right once and for all.
I love that they incorporated all of the history into the movie! He can make all the books into movies and I would WATCH THEM ALL!!! He can take all my money! Make The Silmarillion next! Please!
“Could we get beyond the legal and political debates and actually do the work of making guns uncool? They did it to cigarettes. Could we “stamp out” our national fascination with semi-automatic weapons? Could SimCity ever outsell Grand Theft Auto? Do movies have to glorify handsome young men shooting at their problems even in peactime? Are we even allowed to talk about this?
On FOX News and elsewhere, religious political and entertainment entities Bryan Fischer and Mike Huckabee each laid this horror at the feet of secularism, declaring that God didn’t protect the innocent victims of this shooting because we’ve taken God out of schools and “God doesn’t go where he’s not wanted.”
I’ve always known Bryan Fischer was a ghoul, but I didn’t know he thought God needed an invitation, like a vampire waiting on Sookie’s stoop. Since when has God been so small? What is the Bible but the story of God and God’s messengers going precisely where they weren’t wanted?”
