About 150 people celebrated Pride in Russia this past weekend at the Field of Mars park in St Petersburg — a small number with major significance.
Not only is Russia notoriously homophobic, but its Pride events face huge pushback from officials who mock and degrade them. City authorities denied activists a permit to hold this year’s parade, and instead recommended they hold the event in a landfill.
Yury Gavrikov, the chairman of Ravnopraviye (Equality), said the suggestions made by the authorities are a ‘classic’ example of their attitudes towards gays.
Despite this opposition, the pride event held yesterday went without any major incidents.
Queerussia.com reports the event was secured by police, and there were no violent outbursts or counter-groups protesting.
Bravery and strength in the face of so much hatred. Russia’s LGBT community never ceases to amaze me.

Same for mass shootings which are almost entirely done by white males.
If it was done by, literally, ANYONE ELSE of any other race or gender, I can’t even IMAGINE the shit that would be said by people.
I read somewhere, someone had this theory that the reason shootings are mainly committed by white males is because when women or poc feel alienated, depressed, etc, we are trained to keep it to ourselves, whereas white men are raised with a sense of entitlement that allows them to make their own problems everyone’s problem.
I wonder if it is true for shooting or for road rage or both or neither.

I DO NOT EXPECT TO RECEIVE ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY FOR ALL OF THIS. I just had to say that first. This is some of what I’m trying raise money to get. (24 hr insulin, short lasting insulin, anti depressants, needles for insulin pens and honestly, I can get the needles on Amazon for maybe $10 cheaper but this is just to show the prices.) I’ve managed to raise about $130 (thanks to momentia forumgamer pacificskyrimjob and a couple of others that I didn’t get a URL for!) But as you can see, I’m still pretty far away.
I will be putting some items on Vinted.com today if anyone is interested. I have to turn in my Medi Cal application today so after I do that, I’ll make another post with a link to my Vinted.
Also my best friend camembertlylegal is willing to do art for anyone in exchange for donations to help me get my insulin! She’s super talented and sweet!
I completely understand if you can not donate, but a reblog could really help me out. Thanks so much to everyone that’s like, reblogged, donated, boosted, and tried to help.
If you’d like to donate, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org and it can be sent through PayPal. Thank you!
I’m going away but I will make a charm bracelet for anyone who donates over $15
So i have this giant pencil right
I think we all know where this is going.
the amount of people saying that they were expecting me to shove it up my ass is alarming
