f1rstperson: weavemama: weavemama: so the president joked about committing genocide towards gay people……NO ONE should excuse a comment like this, america is such a backwards nation and there shouldn’t be any denial about it Proof that he actually said this. ANYONE. WHO. VOTED. FOR. THIS. SHOULD. BE. ASHAMED. “Trump thinks Pence is great,” Bannon told me. But, according to a longtime associate, Trump also likes to “let Pence know who’s boss.” A staff member from Trump’s campaign recalls him mocking Pence’s religiosity. He said that, when people met with Trump after stopping by Pence’s office, Trump would ask them, “Did Mike make you pray?” Two sources also recalled Trump needling Pence about his views on abortion and homosexuality. During a meeting with a legal scholar, Trump belittled Pence’s determination to overturn Roe v. Wade. The legal scholar had said that, if the Supreme Court did so, many states would likely legalize abortion on their own. “You see?” Trump asked Pence. “You’ve wasted all this time and energy on it, and it’s not going to end abortion anyway.” When the conversation turned to gay rights, Trump motioned toward Pence and joked, “Don’t ask that guy—he wants to hang them all!” Since this is a really long article here’s the part referencing it for anyone who needs that. : The New Yorker @NewYorker When the conversation in a meeting turned to gay rights, Donald Trump motioned toward Mike Pence and joked: nyer.cm/dultLH7 NEW YORKER "Don't ask that guy-he wants to hang them all" -Donald Trump, President of the United States 10/16/17, 11:30 AM 4,333 Retweets 3,677 Likes f1rstperson: weavemama: weavemama: so the president joked about committing genocide towards gay people……NO ONE should excuse a comment like this, america is such a backwards nation and there shouldn’t be any denial about it Proof that he actually said this.

lgbt-history-archive: Freddie Mercury (September 5, 1946 – November 24, 1991), 1978. Photo © Neal Preston. Freddie Mercury, who would turn seventy today, was born Farrokh Bulsura in Zanzibar, though he and his family fled to Britain during the Zanzibar Revolution of 1964. From a young age, Mercury (who began calling himself “Freddie” at boarding school) displayed the characteristics that came to define his public persona: intense kindness and shyness mixed with an uncanny musical ability that, when engaged, would bring out an enormous personality. By 1971, Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon had formed the band that Mercury dubbed “Queen”; around the same time, he changed his last name to Mercury. For the next twenty years, Queen blended prog, glam, and arena rock, disco, opera, gospel, heavy metal, and countless other styles to create an extraordinary sound and to produce hits as varied as “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Somebody to Love,” “I Want to Break Free,” “These Are The Days Of Our Lives,” and the ubiquitous “We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions.” And, of Queen’s legendary live performances, one writer summarized as follows: “Freddie Mercury on stage…is the summit of rock n’ roll.” As with many queer pioneers, debates persist over how Mercury “defined” his sexuality and whether he was “sufficiently open.” In 1992, one writer noted that Mercury “was a ‘scene-queen,’ not afraid to publicly express his [sexuality], but unwilling to analyze or justify his ‘lifestyle’…It was as if Freddie Mercury was saying to the world, ‘I am what I am. So what?’ And that in itself for some was a statement.” Mercury was diagnosed with AIDS in the spring of 1987, a fact he did not publicly confirm until the day before his death. Freddie Mercury died on November 24, 1991; he was forty-five. Mercury was survived by his partner, Jim Hutton, and his longtime companion, Mary Austin. #lgbthistory #lgbtherstory #lgbttheirstory #lgbtpride #QueerHistoryMatters #HavePrideInHistory #FreddieMercury: lgbt-history-archive: Freddie Mercury (September 5, 1946 – November 24, 1991), 1978.
