Nearly a year ago as our community was gearing up to celebrate pride we were stricken with the travesty that occurred at @pulseorlando I remember staying home watching the news wracking my brain trying to understand what would push someone to such a heinous act, and then out of the turmoil I saw something beautiful. I saw my community flaws and all come together, console and reassure one another that we will be alright. We will endure this together and we will stand up to those who hate and demonize us and we will not be intimidated by hate fueled acts of violence. As we approach this years Pride celebration I'm more proud than ever to be playing a part. I would like to take a moment to acknowledge all those we lost at the hands of a coward and remind everyone out there, this is why we have pride. To show commemoration of our liberation from the closet, to appreciate our advancements towards equal rights and to salute those that have fallen in our on going stance against hate and discrimination. I find it only fitting a rainbow is the representation for the LGBT community, every time we weather the storm we turn it to something beautiful. #HappyPride. 📸 @arnodiem #Pride #pulseorlando
L.A. rapper ROB.B recently released his debut EP, Eleven Eleven, and often blesses fans with impressive freestyle rap videos in between scorching selfies.
If you feel like you can't do anything, and that it's not important enough to fight now and why should we care about refugees anyway?, know that it was *already* EXTREMELY difficult to become an immigrant to the US if you are a Syrian refugee. Less than 1% are admitted after being subjected to MONTHS of interviews, tests, paperwork submissions — (yes, each is PLURAL). 65 million people are currently displaced by man made conflicts in the world — there is no point of reference for this in our history (yes, we are long past the scale of the Holocaust). All these people want to do is run from death, from rape, from starvation, from the freezing cold, from the jaws of death and poisoning and dismemberment. This is why they are running to us. As some of you know, MULTIPLE SOURCES CONFIRM not a SINGLE terrorist act since 9/11 has been committed by ANYONE from any of the seven countries trump banned (I have also read reports that no acts have been committed dating back to the 70s). But, terrorists have come from Saudi Arabia, Pakistan (ISIS/ISIL), and others that WERE NOT ON TRUMPS LIST. why? Simple. He has business dealings in those countries. A year ago, I, too, was afraid to speak. Then the fear of meeting my maker, my future children or even my own reflection, and not being to say I had been doing what I could to help make life better for others, became greater than the fear of speaking out. If we all do a little something each week, then none of us need to worry about the days when all we have time to do is read the news and practice self care. We take shifts. Right? But if the responsibilities of many land on the shoulders of few, justice, freedom and hope will fall out of our hands! I need my friends and my network, if you aren't already doing so – to reach out and find out how you can help. I am doing a little and many are doing a lot. Even though we are already loud, we may still be lacking something incredibly necessary: YOU. (Excerpt, read my entire story by following me on my Facebook page) #withrefugees #resist
93.6 percent of the children being killed in Syria are being killed by their own government (over 14,000 CHILDREN SLAUGHTERED to date.) we all spend so much time on the Internet – can't we use it actually research and open our eyes to the grisly and unconscionable truths coming out of the Middle East? Did we not learn from the 1930s? Mainstream news keeps this genocide so compartmentalized. Lets branch out and read the New York Times, listen to the BBC, read the washington post. Years from now movies will be made about Aleppo and Syria and they will win awards and we will wonder why we didn't do more. This week I read the story of a man who stood up to gunmen who invaded a rescue bus that he and his pregnant wife were on. The gunmen spoke impolitely to the mans wife, and they punished him for standing up for her by shooting him on the spot. YOU CAN STAND UP NOW. Link in my bio will take you to short and long term actions you can take to improve this situation – journalists to follow, ways to educate yourself and others, ways to give and volunteer. Just because it isn't happening here, doesn't mean it isn't happening.
