Stonewall Veteran and STAR co-founder. Learn you history folx. If it weren’t for trans women of color like Marsha and Sylvia, we’d still be hiding in dark bars praying the cops don’t raid it.

One of the great opening lines of all time. Also important: pajamas, GRAY LIPS, plaid shirts, and Left-Eye barely appearing bec she supposedly hated this song so much she was going to put black tape over her mouth for the shoot, which so something I would do.

i think it’s important that i reblog this, as a gift to myself, because i love TLC, but even more, i love that TLC post i reblogged a few months ago, which is going to be the funniest thing that ever appears on this tumblr. “every time a bell rings, left eye lopes just burnt another asshole’s house down with her laser vision from heaven.” “he was an abusive jerk and he deserved it. girl power.” i will never not laugh imagining that guy’s horror upon learning of his burnt tennis shoes. 

strangely just last night p-strut was texting me about setting boys on fire and left eye as a role model and it never ceases to please me how much overlap there is in my Feminist Conversations

I love all of this! Webstalking, burning houses (which is also so Bertha and so Emily Valentine), mandatory rectal exams, kissing and telling and giving out numbers.

today.

Frances Wilson, 1961.

Frances, a 23 year old student at Tennessee State University, was expelled for her participation in the Freedom Rides along with 14 other students.  In 2008, the expelled students all received honorary doctorates from Tennessee State University.  Sadly, Frances did not live long enough to receive her degree.
