WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: AUSTRALIA

Originally located in Arnhem Land, The Australian College of Sorcery and Witchcraft was a sprawling campus of large huts that eventually coalesced into one single structure. The school separated from mainland Australia soon after British settlement in order escape diseases that killed a large portion of the indigenous population. Ever since, the school has been drifting haphazardly along the Australian coast. Every year, a team of witches and wizards must be employed to anchor the floating campus so students don’t have to go on a cat-and-mouse chase at the beginning of the year in order to attend school (a frustrating endeavour which often results in the postponing of classes due to the lack of a present student population). Due to the campus’s exposure to ocean-life, the College of Sorcery and Witchcraft boasts incredibly extensive courses in aquatic creature studies, and is held in high esteem by the international wizarding community for its innovations in water magic.

Please Help a Brother Out:  Come Fund Top Surgery for Bryan
By now practically everyone in the Queer Nation has heard the story of the really unfortunate incidents that occurred in March 2013 on the Washington Mall during the Supreme Court arguments on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).  But do you know the real people who it happened to?  Well meet the guy who was holding the Trans* Flag that day.  
As Bryan Ellicott explains, what started as a happy and exciting day of LGBT Pride & History turned into his ”Supreme Court Marriage Rally Transphobic Experience From Hell” when a staffer and one of the big Gay Inc. groups (ok so it was HRC again) became upset to see other than approved people and symbols cluttering up their photo-op moments and tried to run the riffraff off.  With Bryan his Flag suddenly thrust unwilling into a staring role as "unapproved riffraff".
A political activist for the progressive and LGBT community Bryan describes himself as an ”open and proud bisexual transman”. 
A native of Staten Island NY graduating from College of Staten Island with a BA in Poli Sci, he has interned in the offices of then City Council Speaker Christine Quinn,  and then Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz. During 2012, he went out and worked in the Ohio OFA (Organizing for Action) office helping re-elect Obama to a second term and he was a campaign aid (LGBT Liaison) to Mel Wymore in his run for the New York City Council. Bryan is also a long-time board member of the Stonewall Democrats of New York City. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy Bryan worked with FEMA doing Community Relations work.
In June of 2014 Bryan sued NYC for discrimination after he was ordered to use the wrong public pool locker room.
Says Bryan,




"the bulk of my work is in the LGBT community whether it be advocating for Marriage Equality across the country, calling out the need those who talk ill to me or any of my transgender brothers and sisters as well as my continued work for Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA) in New York State or when it comes to people learning about bisexuality and not thinking those horrible myths are anything but that.”




When trouble came Bryan and his friends were there standing strong representing the the entire LGBT Community.  So while you are cheering the symbolism please also remember the actual person. Says Bryan,




"I wanted to ask you my brothers and sisters to help me in my journey. Top surgery is my next step toward the place I want to be.  Anything you can do to help me would be most appreciated and if you could share this with others that would be amazing as well.”




So what do you says people? He was there for us. Can you be there for him? Please click the link and Help Fund Top Surgery for Bryan.   Thanks

September 2014 (Update)We’re almost there. Less than $1K!! Can you help?
Says Bryan, "Everyday I become more of the man I see myself too be … We have a short period of time but I am super excited too give me my dream. I need just a little more help and we are there”.

Darren Hunt of Utah

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

oh for fucks SAKE

Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58409680-78/family-hunt-moss-police.html.csp

He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.

and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…

Exactly! This is evil.

Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen

Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.

This dude was cosplaying.

He was dressed up in a costume.

Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?

Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back

Get tired. Thats right. Get good and fucking tired. Then act.
