“I think at this point in our world, we’ve got a really confused idea of the way gender and sexuality works. I think we’ve created this really superfluous sort of like binary in the way we think about gender. And I guess I identify as queer because I don’t identify with that. I think that makes us less whole as people. I don’t need to be assigned to what it is I can do or who I can love. And it seems like we keep drawing these battle lines which are completely unnecessary. So that’s what I basically mean. When I say I’m queer, I’m saying that I think human beings are amazing. And love is an honor and an opportunity. And a fragile thing. A fragile process in which there’s no room for doubt, or shame, or hatred.” — Ezra Miller
This is my new favourite euphemism. I aim to use it in casual conversation before the week is out.
“A friend of mine found this old photograph in a shoe box in his Grandmother’s attic. On the back was written… Aunty Mary and her “friend” Ruth, 1910. I wonder if those quotation marks imply what I think they do, by the look on their faces, I would say they do”
Eu Não Quero Voltar Sozinho (I Don’t Want to Go Back Alone)
The life of Leonardo, a blind teenager, completely changes with the arrival of a new student at his school. At the same time, he has to deal with his jealous friend, Giovana, and understand the feelings aroused by new friend Gabriel.
This is such a beautiful film. And you can just go and watch it for free! I thoroughly recommend it.
“I’m queer,” he says, simply. “I have a lot of really wonderful friends who are of very different sexes and genders. I am very much in love with no one in particular. I’ve been trying to figure out relationships, you know? I don’t know if it’s responsible for kids of my age to be so aggressively pursuing monogamous binds, because I don’t think we’re ready for them. The romanticism within our culture dictates that that’s what you’re supposed to be looking for. Then [when] we find what we think is love — even if it is love — we do not yet have the tools. I do feel that it’s possible to be at this age unintentionally hurtful, just by being irresponsible — which is fine. I’m super down with being irresponsible. I’m just trying to make sure my lack of responsibility no longer hurts people. That’s where I’m at in the boyfriend/girlfriend/zefriend type of question.”

Does anyone have any information on this? When was this made? In which context? Is that woman Anne Hathaway or am I wrong?
It is Anne Hathaway! These are promo shots from when she, Audra McDonald and Raul Esparza did Twelfth Night. Here’s a source
Wow - that was less than 2 minutes! Thank you very much for this!
Why Viola is one of my very favorites reason four thousand and ten: that blue coat.
And. Uh. Well. Everything else. What a distressingly sexy situation!
#so i thought this was a delightfully queer textual moment #(ST. SEBASTIAN!)
Absolutely THIS. I actually got a really queer vibe off Richard the whole way through. And the whole St. Sebastian thing just screams gay.
Drag Kings and Hickies, 2011
I loved the photos of Anne Hathaway from her part in Twelfth Night, so dashing. So I wanted to draw a dashing prince crossdresser being ravished. I tend to draw really…beefy girls? Also, hooray windowpane cast shadows.
