How do you document real life?

Hi, I'm Lauren!
(or rdm, if you prefer the shorter name with the longer story)

I'm 23, a university student and a self-confessed music nerd.

Here you'll find Glee, Disney, Sherlock, fic, musicals, pretty people, pretty things and my ramblings.
Oh and I have a tendency to overshare. Don't say I didn't warn you.


Seriously though, if you don’t think asexual representation is important, you need to get educated, because it is really hard to live in a sex-centric culture and not be interested in sex. 

I have seen so many posts about finding out about asexuality after joining tumblr and you know what word almost all over them have in common? Broken. 

And that’s fucked up.

body talk II: the sum of all my (private) parts 


So I wrote a terrifying, sort of TMI post about medicalising trans narratives and asking people to justify their bodies?



(**Constantly tbh.)

New Documentary Highlights Discrimination Within the Black Lesbian/(and Bisexual) Community

The Same Difference is an hour-long documentary about lesbians who discriminate against other lesbians and bisexual women by Nneka Onuorah, an associate producer for BET.

“It’s almost like a gang,” Onuorah tells ELIXHER. “This is the criteria. This is what you have to do or you’re not a part of it, you’re not in it, or you’re not real. I thought that was ridiculous” … she wanted to start the conversation and shed some light on those issues …

So far, the teaser has been well received. The LGBT community wants to see it because they are living this every day…

Her fundraising goal is $15,000 and the money raised will go to production costs for her to complete the film. Onuorah does not want to only get the major city perspectives that are always seen. She wants to talk to people in states like Utah, Arkansas, and Washington … she also wants to make sure the message is heard by everyone, not just the lesbian community.

“It’s the same difference,” she says. “It’s not like we [lesbians] just face discrimination or we discriminate against each other and have stereotypes. This happens in the African American [heterosexual] community. From culture to culture, we’re doing this to each other. You can take the ‘lesbian’ out of the film and it will still be as powerful”The Same Difference is sure to spark a national dialogue around identity and the way we police one another. Give what you can to help make this important film happen. Donate here.

Cameron Esposito on homophobic heckles

posted 1 week ago with 2,023 notes - via goddammitstacey © lgbtlaughs


Feelings, feelings everywhere: Meet Cameron. He’s 7 years old and in the second grade, and recently, he got in big trouble for making fun of a boy who brought a Barbie to school for show-and-tell. When he realized how much he had hurt the boy’s feelings, he wrote a letter to apologize to him, but that wasn’t enough. Cameron started an anti-bullying club at his elementary school, and more than 75 students showed up to learn how to be kinder to others. Check him out in the news, and join me in sobbing all over the place, won’t you?

Here is a slam poem I wrote in response to some dumbass questions/statements/comments made about a certain aspect of my inherent make-up. Because goddamn, no one says these things about my eye-colour.

This poem is called The Answer

This is actually a shortened version of the original poem but I think all the essentials are present.

Please don’t remove my text!

Hey Bibabies!

This is me slammin’ down some words about how sick I am about people questioning the legitimacy of my feelings for people. Pride gave me the courage to post this, and I hope you enjoy listening to it! I certainly enjoyed slamming it down. xxx
