    The thread title...I'm sorry, but I wanted to be stereotypical gay for a minute. Okay!? >.>
    And I happen to think rainbows and unicorns are pretty bad ass. Moving on.

    I thought it would be nice to have a thread where everyone can come to do one of three things:

    1- Post a picture.
    2- Look at pictures.
    3- Both.

    But we're not talking just any sort of picture here. There is a catch.

    See, I was inspired to make this thread because I have this very particular folder in my bookmarks. It's a sub folder in my LGBT folder, and it's where I keep all the pictures of anything pertaining to the LGBT world that I find inspirational.

    There are pictures are couples, same-sex parents with their children, people fighting for equality, pride parade pictures, random signs of support, etc. Some of them aren't even photographs, they are drawings and sketches.

    I always enjoy flipping through this folder when I'm feeling particularly down about things in our LGBT world. Like when I have to hear all kinds of anti-gay crap being slung around. I mean...seeing how happy and cute and wonderful...and just like hetero couples we are...it never fails to make me feel better.

    So I figured...why not? Why not have a place for everyone on EC to come and toss in those images that put a smile on their face? Why not have a place for people to come and take a look and remember that it's all worth it? So here we are. I hope you all enjoy.



    Disclaimer: These are images I've seen on my Tumblr, Facebook, random browsing. I don't own them. If you come across something that just happens to be yours...first off, I'm going to gawk at the odds, second I'm going to do whatever you want me to with it. Label it, take it away, etc. Yeah. So I hope this is all good. >_<

    I really love this picture. I actually just recently came across it. The boys shown are the sons of Jennifer Tyrrell, the BSA den mother who was ousted as her position due to her sexual orientation.

    And another non-picture, but I wanted to share it anyway. :slight_smile:

    I have posted this before, but I thought I'd post it again. It's a German father wearing a skirt in support of his gender non-conforming son who you see in a dress to the left.
