For the thousands of you who look forward to my weekly Sunday Funday post (I rounded up to the nearest few thousand), my apologies for not only being late this week, but for missing last week. I was at an education conference (for www.uwc.org) in Budapest and wasn’t able to serve you all.
But fear not, your weekly dose of fun, informative and downright random photos is back.
1) As I’m sure most of you know, Saturday saw World Pride take over London. Rather than bore you with my snaps of naughty Philippinos changing the letters of Philippines to spell various cheeky words, boys in bondage or drag queen imitations of Madge and Gaga, I’ll simply share this image.
As Will already reported, it wasn’t quite the grand scale WorldPride that we all would’ve liked it to have been. But it was certainly a great day, and I can say that as someone who isn’t necessarily in favour of all the imagery that comes with Pride celebrations, there were definitely moments during the parade where I actually felt proud. My only regret from the day is that my friend managed to get a photo with Ben Cohen and I didn’t…!
Well I don’t know about you guys across the pond, but England is less than happy right now, following the football result (here’s me assuming that some of you gays actually care) – so here are some photos to brighten the mood!
2) Let’s address gay marriage, or…
3) The way it should be:
4) After all…
5) And just in case you’re worried that the extremist religious folk are the ones making sense
6) But before I end up ironically stereotyping all religious people, let’s remember that they don’t all discriminate and hate
7) So…On a completely differen not, here’s the cutest photo you’ll see all week
It’s never too late to post some happiness, right?
1) This week I’m excited to share with you some of these old adverts from back in the day, before people were scared to say gay (ooh that rhymed). Oh and in case you’re confused – “gay” originally meant “happy”.
If you insist!
I’m pretty sure whoever made this one KNEW about the double meaning.
How many people passed the Queen’s jubilee weekend:Too much gay fun: I knew I should never have tried Ovaltine that one time…! Or maybe I just ate too much Jell-o as a kid…
2) If you’re not already smiling – stick this on and get to it!
3) And while you dance around, ponder this… (because it’s something that has confused me for a long time!)
4) The debate over equal marriage is rife in the UK at the moment, with the Church of England claiming it to be the worst thing to happen to the church in over 500 years.
Here in the UK there’s been plenty to smile about today, lease of the two bank holidays that follow! But here’s a quick post to hopefully put a smile on your faces too; give you something to think about; and remind you of
1) First, a lesson from a friend of Dorothy
2) Hilariously, this genuinely seems to be some people’s reaction:
3) A tragic reminder of why fighting for gay rights is still so important, to ALL of us (Source: Post Secret)
4) And here, the very reason why tyranny of the majority perpetuates inequality:
5) Because, after all, we are a huge danger to all of course!
6) And lastly, because it’s too funny not to: the best photo of a surprised building you’ll see all day
