Sorry guys. I know the account has been inactive for a really long time and I hope I don't let this happen again. I'll try to post quality gay content every day so I don't end up forgetting about this again.
I was in DC this week to learn more about working with legislators. The focus then quickly shifted to the #grahamcassidy bill and how it would have a devastating effect on the people with disabilities that we support as well as their families. Please take a moment to call or email your senators and tell them NO to #grahamcassidy. It takes a matter of moments to do either and it is much easier and less intimidating than you think. Get in touch and let your legislators know what matters to you!
Thank you Madeline Stecz for leading the charge! The driving force in defeating Trumpcare has been because of the grassroots strength of our supporters and patient advocates. Continue to call, write, and share your story! Every voice is heard and every voice matters. #IStandWithPP#ProtectOurCare#HearOurVoice "Just spoke to Portman's staff with some fellow Ohioans why this new version of the Trumpcare bill is STILL disastrous. We voiced our concern about how thousands in Ohio and millions of people in our country will lose healthcare and specifically lose healthcare through Planned Parenthood. Portman needs to listen to his constituents and stand up to the party". -Madeline Stecz
How we're feeling today: enough. Enough of denying climate change for profit. Enough of desperate GOP attempts to repeal Obamacare and kick millions off insurance. Enough of Trump's rash reactions putting the entire country, or world, in danger.
Call your reps and tell them, it's enough. We need sustainable energy. We need public healthcare. We need to stop threatening and start thinking. Enough is enough. 🏻

Perfect quote and I feel it's perfect for what I'm about to say. I must let this out for the fact I LIKE TO LET EVERYTHING OUT. Not cool to hold anything in. It wasn't fair. Recently on Snapchat I had written a quote about my life. That day I woke up with hope, positiveness. I had written something like this "I sometimes WISHED I could kill myself (keyword WISHED:Past tense) but 1 look into my children's eyes and I realize I have to always keep fighting/ I live for them #mykidsareworthliving" it somehow got misinterpreted and it somehow seemed suicidal to someone. So I was told I need help and I'm not gonna lie I told them what they wanted to hear because me explaining my post was not HEARD. Went through one ear and out the second ear IN 1 SEC! I'm so happy I just had my newborn and to be thought that I'm feeling the opposite I'm just like NO. I'm now at that age if you don't bring anything positive to my families table or you want to be passing all these judgements assuming you are someone else, forcing wrong feelings on someone and trying to make a grown adult explain themselves you need to seriously keep walking. Filter your mouths if you don't have a clue about the truth or if you always think you're right, guess what? You're not. I'm a woman, a wife l, a mother and there is SO MUCH TO SMILE ABOUT, Dont you ever misinterpret my shit and turn it into a negative. Where the fuck was everyone when I actually wanted to kill myself almost 3 years ago? Where were you as I healed? Where were u when I finally said WOW I don't HAVE THOSE THOUGHTS ANYMORE? Oh I know where, probably not giving a flying fuck. So before you think YOU KNOW SOMETHING OR SOMEONE ASK AND LISTEN BEFORE YOU MISINTERPRET BS IN YOUR MIND. DONT EVER FORCE FEELINGS ON OTHER PEOPLE LIKE "She wants to kill herself" just NO. STOP. #dontjudge#quotes#instaquote#quotestagram#instalife#quotesaboutlife#quotestoliveby#quoteoftheday#stopjudging#dontforcefeelings#listen#hearourvoice#itsnotjustallaboutwhatyouthink#knowthetruthbeforeassuming
"I do face challenges getting the kind of work I would like to be involved in. I would also like to best cast for a beach shoot, but apparently I don't fit the 'beach shoot' look." @alexandramantoura's HEAR OUR VOICE photography and street art campaign is putting young, Sydney-based creatives like @helena.sifa front and centre.

Almost nine months ago, "millions of people marched all over the world, in more than five hundred cities across the United States and on all seven continents. They were marching to support women's rights, civil liberties, and equality. They were marching to show their opinions mattered and their voices could not be ignored. The Women's March was the largest mass mobilization in United States history."
This book is another platform for us as parents to teach our children that they are important, that they matter, and that they have a voice. No matter how small or tall you are, your voice matters. We need to teach our children to stand up not only for themselves, but for others as well. .
I sit here reading through the empowering messages, quotes, and thoughts of these young children and can not feel anything but overwhelmed. This is a book I want my son and daughter to read regularly. They both need to hear the words each child is saying and help leave strength, courage, love, and above all else kindness in their hearts and on their minds. .
I truly hope you find a copy of this book on Sept. 26th and share it with the children in your lives, because everyone's voice matters!
