“Today marks 4 years since you walked into my life and turned it upside down. When you met me, I was that girl who was too scared to be seen out and about with a tomboy; a public figure who felt she needed to live a lie to please a society that expects a woman to be with a man; a trapped lesbian who had struggled for years to cover up her biggest secret. Weeks later… we were in a secluded restaurant on our first date and I remember every second of that evening because it was magical. In a room filled with so many tourists, it felt like we were the only two dining. It was the night I discovered what butterflies in the tummy really feels like. It was the night I fell in love for the first time in my life.

4 years later… Those butterflies continue to fly around and they’ve taken over my entire body. My heart, mind, body and soul belongs to you and I plan on keeping it that way till we’re six feet under. Basically… You’re stuck with me chick! Happy Anniversary Tammie-Faye Lavann. I love you so much! Scratch that! I’m in love with you now more than ever!” 💖 via @tashekalavann

This country isn't a safe space for women as long as there is a culture of entitlement around their bodies.

Kiss your friends’ faces more / Destroy the belief that intimacy must be reserved for monogamous relationships / Be more loving / Embrace platonic intimacy / Embrace vulnerability / Use emotionality as a radical tactic against a society which teaches you that emotions are a sign of weakness / Tell more people you care about them / Hold their hands / Tell others you are proud of them / Offer support readily / Take care of the people around you. 🌹

It’s not your job to make people like you. It’s your job to just be you. ✨

Rain rain go away 🎵
First hand accounts from #SantaFeHighSchool students demonstrate both the trauma and the normalcy American students live with on a daily basis. Our children go to school every day wondering if it's only a matter of time before the next tragedy is theirs. Then they are expected to walk back into those sites of trauma and go on with their lives as politicians speak empty platitudes to their pain and loss. #ThisIsAmerica 🇺🇸
Proud of you 🧡
Don’t allow your insecurities to create your reality. No one is “too good” for you. Nothing is “too far” and everything you imagined yourself doing as a child is within reach. That’s the secret difference between your adult-self and your child-self; your child-self doesn’t allow insecurities to dictate their day. Everything can happen for you if you work for it. Anyone can be yours if you allow your true love to shine from your heart. The world is here for the experiencing. 🌹
