  • Sat, 21:14: RT @fuzzlaw: Then, the mid-90's. Anti-retroviral drugs came along. Our men started surviving. We began to flourish, stand up, stand out mor…
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: Here and there, we fought for 'gay' marriage. Folks started coming out. Melissa. K.D. George. Ellen. Each was huge and life-af…
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: Reveling in our newfound life and out-ness, Matthew Shepard's death cut us to the core. It was 18 years ago. 1998.
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: As a community, we threw it down. HELL no. We didn't survive AIDS for this. We mobilized. Flexed our muscles. Change came.
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: With every step of progress came backlash. But we pushed. And we pushed. And there weren't any Upstairs Lounges. No Matthew Sh…
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: We won. We won the right to marry, to have our employment rights protected, to live as fellow citizens. Fights remain, of cour…
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: But we were winning. Then, Pulse. 50 dead. 50 wounded. Babies. Kids. The ones we fought so hard to protect from the backlash.
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: The backlash we knew all too well, but that the post Matthew Shepard generation has never known.
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: We never wanted you to know about this. We never wanted you to experience this. It's why we fought, and fight, so hard.
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: Yes, it's for our generation, but really...it's for you. For us, this violence is...not unexpected. We know it's possible. We…
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: But you all...dammit, you've never had to worry about it, not collectively. We never wanted this for you. We thought we had pr…
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: But...clearly, the past is not even past. Welcome to being GLBTQ* in America. There are people who want us dead. And that's no…
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: And it's not just the nuts with the guns. It's the politicians who sacrifice us on the altar of hateful rhetoric to score poli…
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: It's the churches that won't ordain us, won't celebrate us, who insist on continuing to 'love the sinner and hate the sin".
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: It's the nonsensical fight over who can use which bathrooms. The inability of Congressmen to mention that it was GLBTQ* people…
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: It's the families who turn GLBTQ* teenagers on to the street instead of just fucking loving them. Schools who expel them.
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: It's every bully who teases and effinite boy and harasses a masculine girl. Every man who tells a lesbian she just needs the '…
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: It permeates our society. It is SO much better than it was, yet remains SO awful. It's why our generation kept fighting, and k…
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: But it's time for our generation to teach the next. Welcome to the fight for your lives, kids. We're with you. We'll guide you.
  • Sat, 21:15: RT @fuzzlaw: We'll teach you everything we know. We'll stand on the front lines until you can do it. We'll be the cannonfodder. You're not…
  • Sat, 21:16: RT @fuzzlaw: But the college-environment-creating-change-kumbaya-all-is-well-everyone-has-to-bow-to-what-we-say approach isn't reality.
  • Sat, 21:16: RT @fuzzlaw: The world is not a safe space, and it only gets safer when you fight like hell for it. We weren't given the spaces we have.
  • Sat, 21:16: RT @fuzzlaw: It's a fight. So get prepared. Read your history. Talk to your elders. Listen, and learn. And show up. We need you. Your energ…
  • Sat, 21:16: RT @fuzzlaw: We'd still take a bullet for you, literally, and figuratively. You were just never supposed to have to take a bullet for us.
  • Sat, 21:16: RT @fuzzlaw: RIP, my nieces and nephews and sons and daughters in Orlando. I'm so sorry we didn't protect you.
