WHITE PEOPLE! :D

I was honestly a little baffled by my cloud! I guess I do use the word “mean” a lot, as in, I mean. Weird.

BIG PHOTOSETS FOREVER FOR THEY ARE MUCH HARDER TO IGNORE / a lot of these don’t have hi-res versions available, but i still want to post them

This was not an exaggeration. The government ignored the issue of HIV/AIDS for years before anything was done. Gay and Queer communities had to form their own clinics because no government agencies cared for them. Back then, being diagnosed was equivalent to a death sentence or extreme debt and poor quality of life/a significantly shortened lifespan.

Things got so desperate that people literally had “Die-Ins”— in contemporary usage this refers to masses of people simulating death in order to protest something (like the War in Iraq). In this case, however, fatally sick people would literally lie down in public places and protest with what little energy they had left until they died. There is some footage of a church Die-In in the documentary Beyond Stonewall.  The middle image here of that person’s jacket is not an extreme political statement; it’s what people had to do because they had no other options.

wow.


never forget

Folks also dropped their loved ones cremated ashes on the White House lawn multiple times.  Bash Back also simulated die-ins at churches using chicken blood.  Intense performative and affective tactics.

Everyone should read “Moving Politics” by Debbie Gould.

The struggle of queers at the height of the AIDS crisis was so powerful that I’m disgusted that so many people don’t know about it/forgot about it.

I have a box of HIV/AIDS zines from This Time that I’m giving to Fales. They are amazing—one of them, Diseased Pariah News even had a flexi-disc! Never forget.

Fritz has suddenly become a lap cat and it is making Monster crazy with rage.

But it’s ok because I know spite gives people a reason to live and she needs to live forever.
