Ezra Miller is not the first LGBTQ actor to be cast in a major superhero franchise. Alan Cumming and Anna Paquin are both bisexual and were in the XMen franchise as Nightcrawler and Rogue.
Update: AND Ian McKellen AND Ellen Page. So clearly the XMen franchise is not very straight.
M: Ok, let's look at these utilities....Pepco....huh. This month, $96. Last month, $260. That doesn't seem right...
Em: Dude, we turned off the fucking AC finally, that makes perfect sense.
M: What? Is Pepco the air conditioning?
Em: ....that's our electricity provider. That's YOUR electricity provider for this HOUSE that you OWN.
M: Is it really?
Em: Are you fucking serious.
M: I dunno, man, I just pay the bills.
M: So why's it so cheap this month?
Em: We used significantly less electricity, so they're charging us less.
As marriage equality comes to more states, don’t forget:
You can be fired or denied housing for being gay in 29 states, including 10 that have marriage equality.
LGBTQ students are not protected by anti-bullying laws in 33 states, including 14 with marriage equality. They are not protected by nondiscrimination laws in 36 states, including 16 with marriage equality.
20-40% of homeless youth in America are LGBTQ. 1 in 3 trans people facing homelessness have been turned away from shelters that are supposed to help them due to their trans status.
LGBTQ people of color are almost twice as likely to experience physical violence as white LGBTQ people. More than 70% of anti-LGBTQ homicide victims in 2012 were people of color.
Marriage equality is great, and I’m happy to be getting married next year. But it is neither the only nor the most pressing issue facing the queer community.
