"Love is a perky elf dancing a merry little jig and then suddenly he turns on you with a miniature machine gun."
So, I'll be back with a post about Orlando soon. Right now it's too raw, and there's still too much we don't know. And every time I think about it I break down. I spent two days a crying, sobbing mess, and right now I'm still a little numb. But I'll get to that another day. For now, here's a distraction (of which I've needed many) of some of the fun, upsetting and crazy things on the Internet.
First up, the teaser for the live action Beauty and the Beast:
Before Orlando, we were fighting over trans* people peeing. 10 states joined Texas in a federal lawsuit because they don't want trans* kids, in schools, to be able to go to the bathroom safely. And people wonder why there's anti-gay animus in this country.
And Texas also voted to keep ex-gay torture in their Republican party platform.
Titus from "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" auditions for "Hamilton:"
A year later, has the Delta Foundation learned anything? Not really, but they're a little better at PR moves.
The teaser for the new Rocky Horror. Which, the guy playing RiffRaff, nails that line perfectly, which made me feel a lot better about the whole thing (and Laverne Cox looks awesome):
This Saturday is the Ball on the Bridge, bringing Ball Culture (predominantly African American drag competitions) out into the open. Looks awesome, but sadly I can't go, had I known about it sooner, I would have cleared my schedule.
The Pens won the Stanley Cup! Which was the most needed distraction Sunday night. Hockey Night Canada did an amazing job with their recap, and the music is so, so fitting, you'll be hearing it a lot I think:
Okay, that's it for now, but I'll be back with more, and an in depth look at Orlando soon.
