Tumblr: #this fucking donut #can we talk about this fucking donut for a minute #can we #because on this donut #the sprinkles just comfortably melt into the icing #you can tell that they are so perfectly in tune with each other #and they’ve come so far from when the sprinkles just sort of sat on top #barely touching for fear of rejection #just ugh I can’t #otp: comfortably melting

#this donut gives me feels #all the sprinkle feels #donut my mouth OTP

“May we continue to disagree, may we continue to distinguish our movements by their bases of accountability, may we continue to give different accounts of how we got here and where we are, and may we collaborate but never compromise our visions of where we ought to be.”

Why Urban Afro-Futurism?

urbanafrofuturism:

This started out rambling thoughts on my thoughts on Afro-Futurism. What it’s become is a long rambling essay/poem (!) on my worldview, my religious thoughts, and what I think of humanity and existence in general. I think I’ve finally found a framework that fully articulates all my thoughts while leaving so much room for growth and evolution. I’m very very happy with it. :)

Move This Way: Animating Lady Gaga’s Bravery Space

wellesleyunderground:

On leap day 2012, Lady Gaga launched a movement. She announced at Harvard University Sanders Theater, to an audience consisting of educators, researchers, lawyers, lottery-picked college students, and little monsters, that she wanted youth to be kind. But being kind was not the challenge. Being kind is not hard. Understanding what prevents you from being kind can be hard. Moving deliberately in your environments and sticking up for yourself and others, becoming a constant advocate for treating all people fairly, opening up tough spaces for dialogue as a result of your openness - that’s bravery.

Being a trailblazer isn’t new territory for Lady Gaga.

She rocks black gowns and veils in the most rural of places.

In fact, that’s what she wore as took the stage at Harvard on February 29th at 4pm.

But the story starts before that.

Appreciate this. Were there youth present? Does born this way also speak to youth who don’t understand their queerness as biological? And how out of touch am I that I didn’t even know it happend?!
