I want lgbt book stores, lgbt coffee houses, and lgbt theaters to replace lgbt bars as centers of community, places to meet people, and lgbt rights of passage.
YES. i am so fucking TIRED of every queer event being at a bar or another 21+ venue, especially when alcoholism is a thing for so many, esp. queer youth, and community isolation is such a major factor in so many suicides.
#non-heterosexuality is viewed by default as perverse and thus automatically sexualized#that’s why there’s no queer knitting clubs#our only options are ones that align with the mandate that we must be depraved and hyper-sexual#and most importantly#invisible and underground
plus bars can really crappy places to be if you aren’t a cis-gay. I know trans lesbians get regularly treated crappily at lesbian bars, and I can tell you that being a gay trans man at gay bars sucks.
ive had experiences where ive been told i dont belong or denied entry to gay centric clubs because i obviously didnt fit the stereotype of a queer woman l o l im just glad i eventually found a lovely lil queer family to call my own in london <3
today is bi visibility day. as such, bisexual people will be completely visible for the next 24 hours. this is a bad day to engage in bank heists, ghost impersonations, covert operations for vague yet menacing government agencies, and other common bisexual hobbies that rely upon our powers of invisibility.
