Yup, that’s Dana at the Gen Q premiere — our sources on the ground have revealed that Tina and Phyllis were ALSO in attendance.

Janelle’s birthday was two days ago, she shares a birthday with Zoe Kravitz, which I personally think is blessed information!

River Gallo is a person everyone should be following, they wrote, directed and acted in the short film Ponyboi, which was the first film to feature an openly intersex actor playing an intersex person, and hellloooo look at this glitter moment?

“Laverne Cox Dances to a Bop in Some Sickening Outfit” is a category of video that I firmly believe should be in Oscars, this idea is for free!

The journey to understanding Amber Heard is a long one, it will not without sacrifice and it will certainly not come after looking at this image!

Janet Mock is a perfect person, no notes!

It’s 1:06 in the morning and I just got home from the LA premiere of @sho_thelword + reception. I don’t quite have the words to describe the evening, so get ready for a ramble! ⁣ Last night was a dream come true. I’d always wondered what something like this was like, and I can’t believe I got to experience it first hand. Pink carpet, a dozen cameras flashing all at once, various outlets to speak to, a livestream to share… it was (and is) unbelievable. I did my own hair and makeup and I was terrified of how it would look on camera. I think I did an OK job, if I do say so myself.⁣ ⁣ I’m so grateful to my moms for flying all the way out here for this, and to my roommates who‘be helped keep me grounded through this journey. And I’m so glad they got to be there with me!⁣ ⁣ Watching the first episode in a theater, with my moms and my roommates, listening to people laugh and cry and rejoice in our work was everything I could’ve asked for and more. To those that came up to me afterwards, thank you. It means a lot to hear that you enjoyed the show and that Micah resonated with you. Representation matters and I’m beyond grateful to have a role in that. My 12 year-old self would floored if he knew this is where he’d end up.⁣ ⁣ I also had the privilege of meeting some folks I’ve admired for years, as well as artists I’m a new fan of. We took some pictures, but I think I’ll save them for myself for now. I want to hold onto the memory for a bit.⁣ ⁣ To Marja, Ilene, the OG’s, and @showtime: thank you for allowing me to be a small part of such a massive legacy, and for trusting me with Micah. It’s been an honor.⁣ ⁣ Finally, a massive thank you to @sharpesuiting! I fcking love my new suit! | #TheLWord | 📸: Amanda Edwards & Robyn Beck
