So, slowly the whole world enters the 21st century. And even though the Vatican just announced that it will not bless same-sex unions, more and more people and, above all, governments are beginning to realize that there is more to love than just the relationship between a man and a woman. Beginning with the legalization of gay marriage, there are now more and more people and countries that recognize and accept multiple sexual orientations and identities. And that’s a damn good thing! Celebrities such as Emma Watson and Sir Ian McKellan also set a good example and stand for acceptance and successful outings. We brought you 17 wonderful Tweets about LGBTQ+ today! For you! For more diversity!🏳️🌈
Gay marriage has now been around longer than the Confederacy.
Build statues for that you cowards.

I’ve never met a gay person who regretted coming out – including myself. Life at last begins to make sense, when you are open and honest. Today is the 30th anniversary of the BBC radio discussion when I publically said I was gay. So I’m celebrating!

So, my oldest brother isn’t coming to my graduation because I’m gay. He told me, “no matter how many things you accomplish in life, you’ll always be gay man and that’s the biggest sin of them all.”
Boy, boo!!! We getting this degree with or without you. Period!!

Trans people are who they say they are and deserve to live their lives without being constantly questioned or told they aren’t who they say they are.

I dated a girl in college whose mom tried to talk her out of being gay by telling her she'd have to go through life w/out someone to open jars for her. At the time it was upsetting but in hindsight I kind of love that jar opening was the only use for men she could think of.
