Birthday, Community, and Lesbians: maireddog: Mark Ashton died on this day, the 11th of February, in 1987. Mark was born on the 19th of May, 1960 in Oldham, but grew up in Portrush, Northern Ireland. He moved to London in 1978, where he worked in a bar in King’s Cross, in drag as a barmaid with a blonde beehive. In the 1980s, he volunteered for London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard, campaigned for CND and joined the Communist Party, becoming the first gay secretary of the Young Communist League. Though Mark transformed the Party’s approach to LGBT rights, he and Mike Jackson, who he’d met through Switchboard, wanted to be active as openly gay people. They formed Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM) when they collected donations for miners on strike at 1984 Gay Pride. In the evening of 1984 Pride, a miner spoke at a rally, and they were struck by the similarities between the two struggle, of LGBT rights and the Miners’ Strike. Having collected about £150, they advertised a meeting in Capital Gay. 11 people turned up and from the meeting they made a leaflet to launch LGSM - the leaflet was accepted except with an amendment to ‘one in ten miners is gay.’ As LGSM, they supported the miners as lesbian and gay people. At the second meeting, they decided to focus on one community, of the Dulais Valley, as one of the members, Hugh Williams, was from there. They then met David (Dai) Donovan, who also had thought through the similarities of their struggles and how LGSM could help. A month later, 27 lesbians and gay men, arrived at Onllwyn village in Dulais Valley. Other than some hostility (and confusion towards vegetarianism), they experienced warmth, friendship and solidarity. LGSM raised £20,000 for families of miners on strike, and based on The Sun writing that “a group of perverts” were “supporting the pits,” they organised the Pits and Perverts concert in December, 1984, headlined by Bronski Beat. The miners marched with LGSM at Gay Pride in 1985. Mark was admitted to hospital on 30th January, 1987, and died 12 days later from pneumonia, aged 26. At his memorial, there were banners from the Communist Party, Anti-Apartheid, anti-nuclear, Caribbean and community groups, as well as from LGSM. The Mark Ashton Trust was created to support individuals diagnosed with Aids; Mark is also remembered on the UK Aids Memorial Quilt and by Terrence Higgins Trust, with the Mark Ashton Red Ribbon Fund and a plaque at their London headquarters. In 2017, on what would have been his 57th birthday, he was honoured with a blue plaque above Gay’s The Word bookshop. [Images: 1. Mark Ashton at Gay Pride 1981. 2.

Advice, Books, and Fail: Sylvia J. @justviasyl On 10/24, I had 12 days remaining on my monthly MetroCard when it read "invalid" Just 30 minutes ago, it read invalid again, and it doesn't expire until 12/6. How much more time and money do I have to waste, #MTA? Your best advice is for me to mail it in. You must be jokin 8:04 PM-12 Nov 2018 2 Likes 2 li 2 NYCT Subway@NYCTSubway-8h wReplying to @justviasyl Hi Sylvia - -we know how frustrating this can be. Unfortunately, yes, a malfunctioning Unlimited Ride MetroCard must be mailed into us for investigation. Please do so right away as the reimbursement is based on the postmark date. (12) ABD NYCT Subway@NYCTSubway 8h Replying to @justviasyl The good news is that we are working on a new fare payment system that will include contactless and mobile payment options and, we believe, will be far more reliable and efficient. See mtainfo/press-release/ for more details. (2/2) л BD a J. @justviasyl 1h Replying to @NYCTSubway 1/3: 1) Visited the MetroCard Customer Service Centre-expecting reimbursement within 2 weeks like I was told. 2) Can you please clarify whether we get a new card/money is deposited baclk into the acc. we purchased the MetroCard with? 3) Still haven't heard about 10/24's incident Sylvia J. @justviasyl 60m Replying to @NYCTSubway 2/3: and I'm supposed to consistently waste more money when these issues occur and play the waiting game. My mom also sent in a claim form on 9/23 and has received nothing. Worst service ever. Don't make promises and fail to deliver, please Syia J. @justviasyl 59m Replying to @NYCTSubway 3/3: What are the statistics like for issues like this? This happens a lot in my neighborhood and I know a lot of people who would not come forward and chase after these happenings because of the lengthy process and/or language arrier Sylia J. @justviasyl 43m Replying to @NYCTSubway Great, it really is about time for contactless and mobile payment options to be available. More time should be spent on implementing more efficient processes. justforsmiles: justforsmiles: justforsmiles: justforsmiles: My friend said: “You’re such a millennial - taking the fight to social media.” Yep. That I did. I’m just livid.  I’ll stop sharing this when the MTA stops taking all my hard-earned money I could be using for tuition, stickers, books, food, and other expenses. (Oh wait, that’s never…) Reblogging one week later…nope, I still have not heard anything regarding my 10/24 incident. I WILL NOT LET THE MTA get away with any of this so easily  The MTA has been even more upsetting this week. It has been taking two hours to get to work and get home…four hours of my life being stuck on trains that constantly seem to be experiencing extensive delays. OH AND STILL NOTHING from the MTA…I WANT MY REIMBURSEMENTS. Two weeks. It has been over a month since my first incident. The funny thing is that I’ve noticed MTA workers seated by the train station stairs and guys in uniform looking over the turnstiles. Let me just flatter myself for a moment and pretend they’ve seen posts like this going around and they sense more people will try to get through without paying. I have not done that but that just gets me even more frustrated. I am NOT at all well off to be in this position right now. MTA, you are absolutely dead in my books.

Advice, Animals, and Best Friend: HOW TO FIND A LOST DOG On day 12 of searching for my dog in a heavily wooded area, distraught and hopeless, I ran into a couple of hunters. They said they lost the occasional dog on a hunt but always got them back. What they told me has helped many dogs and families be reunited DOG LOST The dog ownerls) should take an article of clothing that has been worn at least all day, the longer the better, so the lost dog can pick up the scent. Bring the article of clothing to the location where the dog was last seen and leave it there. Also, if the dog has a crate & familiar toy, you can bring those too (unless location undesirable for crate). You might also want to leave a note requesting item(s) not to be moved Leave a bowl of water there too, as the dog probably hasn't had access to any. Do not bring food as this could attract other animals that the dog might avoid. Come back the next day, or check intermittently if possible. Hopefully the dog will be waiting there. I was skeptical and doubted my dog would be able to detect an article of clothing if he didn't hear me calling his name as loud as possible all day for 12 days. But I returned the next day and sure enough found him sitting there! I hope this helps someone out there who's missing a best friend. Good luck :) LifeHackable.com vastderp: adorably-confused-fallen-angel: sparklesmccheesy: ittygittydiddynator: iheichouguys: lifehackable: This is potentially life saving information everyone should know. No you guys this post helped me find my cat. He was missing for almost a month and I’ve had him for over 12 years. After seeing this I put his favorite blanket he always slept on outside hoping he would smell mine or his scent and he was back the next fucking day asleep on it. When my cat got out, we called and called for him, and then, later that night, I remembered similar advice to this, and so put his little scratching pad, which he adores, on the front porch. Not even half an hour later, I heard a thump, opened the door, and there was his big butt, meowing at me. Important and vital I don’t care that I reblogged this today I’m reblogging it again awwwww babies ;_; i hope everyone’s pets come home safe.

Anaconda, Books, and Fake: 2 points 12 days ago When will people wake up and real ice that space doesnt exist, look up and see any stars/galaxy that Nasa is claming. No its just pitch black. There is also a large amount of research by independant scientists showing the earth has to be 100% flat, yet Nasa hides them. Ancient books also show this, yet people still bleieve whatever is spoon fed to them.NASA is there for profit people, they create the illusion of Space so that we spend our tax dollars to fund there fake trips and landings on moon/mars. Why is it that we have pictures of supposed galaxies but no pictures of the Frozen area? or the deep Oceans. They don't show us pics of the frozen area because its actually a wall surrounding the earth. Do some research for gods sake and you can find tons of proof for this. Space is an creation of Nasa, most images are low quality and easily photoshoped or whatever thing they use. Those live cams have been exposed to be using an green screen. Space is a lie just like medication and surgery is.
