You saw me covered in blood on a bus. But do you get outraged about all homophobia? | Hate crime | The Guardian

Make the extraordinary reaction to our attack the norm. I beg you to amplify and channel this energy to hold accountable the intersecting web of elected politicians, government agencies and corporations who have reinforced a status quo of clearly delineated inequality long before this single attack in 2019. Redirect your money from rainbow capitalism to people-of-colour-led organisations striving for justice. I donated to the Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice, Trans Women of Color Collective and Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund. Question why the photo of two attractive, white cisgender women compelled you to post about Pride for the first time.

2019 Baseball Tour – Lake County vs. Lansing

I’m a little late, but I got here just in time to see the Captains take the lead! 2-0 in the first!

A traditional baseball meal, made even better because it’s Buck Monday at Classic Park.

Between the 4.4 earthquake and the weather, this is definitely not a typical Ohio June day.

Well, that didn’t take long. Lansing gets three in the top of the second and now leads 3-2.

While I was fighting with my camera’s Bluetooth connection to my phone, the Captains scored five more runs in the second to take a 7-3 lead! Nothing since then and we’re now in the fifth inning.

Lake County scores two more! 9-3 in the sixth!

2019 Lake County Earthquake. We will rebuild.

And now we’re just walking runs in. 10-4 Captains after 7.

15 mile an hour winds without gusts tonight. It’s definitely made defense interesting.


2019 Baseball Tour – Akron Vs. Reading

It’s a beautiful night for baseball at Canal Park!

A couple stadium hot dogs is always a great way to start the game.

Reading draws first blood with a sac fly in the top of the fourth. 1-0 Fightin Phils.

And the RubberDucks tie it back up in the bottom of the fourth with a solo shot to left! 1-1 tie!


Reading gets another run in the top of the sixth, but ends the inning with a whiff. 2-1 Reading.


For as long as I had to wait on the Thirsty Thursday line, you bet I got a 20oz Bud.

Life can be tough for a reliever. One walk and you’re replaced.

Akron ties it up again with an RBI single in the bottom of the 8th! 2-2!

Akron gets the last out in the top of the ninth, but not before Reading scores and takes the lead. 3-2 going to the bottom of the ninth.

And that’s the ball game.
