I’m real tired of seeing skinny white kids painted as THE AVERAGE QUEER. Like please show me a curvy Indian agender kid from Brooklyn, a hispanic lesbian and her black girlfriend. A trans demisexual dude from Korea. GIVE ME SOMETHING OTHER THAN LANKY PALE PEOPLE WITH COLORFUL HAIR PLEASE GOD.
I will never stop linking to this article: Black People Make Up Largest Share of LGBT Community
Let’s stop pretending otherwise, OK Media?
I agree that media should stop representing the average queer as “lanky pale people with colorful hair”, but i disagree that black people make up the largest share of LGBT community. Why? Because math, that is why. So using the USA’s 2010 census and this article we have
3.2% of non-hispanic white people is about 71,537,044
4.6% of black people is about 17,907,486
4.0% of hispanic people is about 2,019,103
4.3% of asian people is about 6,309,928
these number are not exact, but see the difference
"The presenter, who spent Valentine’s Day with Harry, advised fans not to be hateful towards One Direction’s girlfriends and instead to try and be friends with them: ‘I feel sorry for anyone that gets involved with One Direction, it’s the kiss of death. And I feel sorry for them because of the amount of abuse they get even if you’re just photographed with them. When I was interviewing Justin Bieber I got abuse from people.’"
