In a few days, it will be the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, As we remember those who fought and struggled to give us the rights that we enjoy today, we should also remember that many of our LGBTQ+ family members around the world are still struggling.

Here are a few LGBTQ+ non-profit organization to consider donating to this Pride Month.

It seems to be en vogue to make a biopic about a rockstar struggling with identity and fame. (Even more so if the rockstar wore a lot of sequins and took a lot of drugs…but then, what rockstar in the early 70s didn’t?)

Following the success of last year’s Bohemian Rhapsody, director Dexter Fletcher (who took over the Queen biopic after Bryan Singer was fired) helms this film that is part musical, part biography, and part fantasy. It follows John from childhood until the 1980s, through some of the most turbulent moments of his life, and does not shy away from depicting the highs and lows of his career. Behind the glitter and the spectacle is a very honest approach to the storytelling.

Rocketman is more than just the story of a rockstar’s rise to fame; it’s the love story of Elton John. 

Tom Hardy party!!!


Edward Thomas Hardy. A man’s man and a lady’s wet dream. The (sometimes) bearded British sex god who isn’t afraid to show his wang every now and again. I have long obsessed over this man’s ability to grow a thick and gorgeous face blanket, his multitude of tattoos and scandalous body. Oh, and have I mentioned he’s one of the most talented, versatile actors on the silver screen? He’s worked with the best and continues to churn out amazing movies. You probably know him as Bane, the Dark Knight’s back-breaking nemesis in The Dark Knight Rises (2012) or  Eames, the sexy grifter from Inception (2010). Perhaps he caught your eye as the quiet, cardigan-wearing thug in Lawless (2012), or as the adorable Handsome Bob in RocknRolla (2008) but Tom has also been in a slew of English and American films since stepping on the scene with the mini-series Band of Brothers in 2001. Here are my favorites. You’re welcome.
