    Happy Pride, everyone!
    We compiled this list of tips to help Pride event organizers make their Pride events more inclusive for attendees with disabilities.

    1. Ensure physical and cognitive accessibility from the start. Let’s go beyond just wheelchair ramps, raised viewing areas, and ASL…

    Enough said.

    I fucking hate ISIS. I wrote a tweet blasting ISIS yesterday on my twitter, and it only got one RT, but I have over 1,000 followers. That’s right.. keep ignoring us.

    This. ISI is killing EVERYONE. If you don’t follow their rules they don’t give a shit that you are a muslim. I mean even al quaïda is at war against Isi saying those guys are too dangerous and crazy for them.

    What’s happening in Iraq and Syria is not an ideological battle.

    It is not a battle of wits between civilizations, it is not a state of lawlessness gone to an elevated degree.

    When a militant group solely targets the weak and fragile, destroy the crops of their own country,…

    All I can say is…wow. Not a good feeling. 

    Officer Darren Wilson’s gofundme has more money donated than Michael Brown’s memorial fund. White privilege at it’s finest. 

    I don’t usually post about stuff like this, but please share this in hopes of more people donating to Michael Brown’s family. You can find the gofundme page: here.

    It really warms my heart to see the library looking out for its community in the light of everything happening in Ferguson.

    The community in Ferguson is struggling to come up with the money to keep their kids fed, since school has been cancelled all this time, yet people have donated over $12,000 to the murderer who started all of this in the last 24 hours alone. Think about that. And then donate to the right cause.

    Violence continues to erupt in Ferguson, Mo., more than a week after the fatal shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown by policeman Darren Wilson. The 18-year-old’s family demands justice be brought to their son with the arrest…

    I never realized this until seeing the detail, but this painting is most likely about the flu pandemic.

    Most people give the homeless change or leftovers, Mark Bustos is cutting their hair

    For the past few months, New York City hairstylist Mark Bustos — who normally spends his days working at an upscale salon — has been volunteering on his days off to offer haircuts to homeless people he sees on the street. With a simple phrase, “I want to do something nice for you today,” he has been helping people get a fresh, uplifting makeover.

    For people who have been trapped in a cycle of poverty, unemployment and homelessness, the makeover can also serve a useful function: looking presentable for a job.

    Inspiring thanks he received from one man | Follow micdotcom

    The things people do NOT think about.

    Here’s another one. There are several charities that will accept donations of used suits in good condition. These suits are then given or loaned out to homeless people for job interviews.

    Dress For Success - accepts women’s suits, shoes, overshoes, purses, shirts/blouses.

    Career Gear - accepts new or gently used business professional gear for men including ties, NEW socks, briefcases, belts, etc. Local New York area only.

    Bridge To Success in Chicago accepts business professional and business casual clothing, with a special need for clothes for larger individuals.

    There are tons more. If you have a suit you don’t like any more, consider donating it…so that not just one but SEVERAL poor people have a better chance of landing a job.
