Queer/queer ally twitter is arguably one of the best parts of twitter. Whether it’s declarations of self love, witty takes on everyday life, enlightening social commentary, or political analysis, this section of twitter is a gift that keeps giving.

You can’t actualize your full potentials as a person if your life is criminalized.
You’re not human before gay.
You’re a gay and human. They both coexist. If you put human before gay, it totally means ‘homosexuality’ can be acquired.
So yes! Gay lives are in danger in Nigeria.

Glad Halle Berry dropped out of playing a trans man, but of note, her apology in no way touches on the fact she repeatedly referred to the character with "She/Her" pronouns, and called it "a woman's story".

Sometimes we even forget how triggering everything is.
