Water permeable nail polish info update - please read!
DON’T ACTUALLY USE INGLOT FOR THE SAKE OF WATER PERMEABILITY. IT’S NOT VERY EFFECTIVE.
It’s only water vapor permeable, and it’s not at all water permeable when you apply multiple coats, a top coat, or a base coat.
You should use the Tuesday In Love water-permeable brands instead! They’re completely water permeable and come in a whole ton of colors!
Here’s a test that a sister did comparing the Inglot brand and the Tuesday In Love brand on a paper towel so you can see for yourself.
please please please spread this around, I would hate for a lot of sisters to have their prayers invalidated because of something like this.
this retailer sells a halal nail polish. this allows for oxygen and water to go through the nail, which makes it acceptable to wear during prayer. spread the word.
Being a relatively modern creation, nail polish remains obviously unaddressed by early Islamic sources. But the general consensus in the Islamic community is that praying with nail polish is impermissible because of the waterproof barrier it creates on nails, which prevents the wudu ritual from being completed five times a day. - source
HELP BRING THE LESBIAN ROMEO AND JULIET TO DVD.
West Philadelphia’s Curio Theater began its 2013-14 season with William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Since the season was oriented on issues of gender, many of the roles in the play were switched from men to women.
Juliet’s only parent was her mother, Lady Capulet. Tybalt was a very different kind of character. And the play was now about a lesbian romance between Juliet and a woman named Romeo.
But there was controversy. Philadelphia magazine’s online article about the production attracted over 1200 responses. People around the country objected to the production’s gay content. They objected to the play being staged in a Methodist church. Some of them objected to doing Shakespeare in modern dress. And there were threats of violence made against Curio Theatre.
Their Kickstarter is less than a thousand dollars from its goal—please help!

FIRST ANNUAL QUEER PUNK FEST
Organized and run exclusively by qpoc!
> first night: DANCE PARTY, MOVIE SCREENING, MINGLING // next day: WORKSHOPS, TABLING, ART INSTALLATIONS, BANDS, DRAG, SPOKEN WORD, PERFORMANCE ART <
Queer Punk Fest is a FREE event taking place in Southern California. It is born out of the need for queer punks and radical queers to carve out a space in a heavily white-macho radical/anarchist-punk scene. Queer Punk Fest will mark the beginning of the end of the heteronormative scene we have all day-dreamed of escaping from. In a scene that has become another costume party for white hipsters and suburban kids, we reclaim the power of punk and DIY culture to create alternative spaces free from oppression and social hierarchies. As a collective run by queer and trans people of color, we recognize that punk was born out of this necessity to create alternative spaces that challenge mainstream ideals. We aim to be the hammer that will drive the final nail into the coffin of a scene that has tokenized, abused, and misunderstood our existence. We see the current punk and anarchist/radical community as a reflection, not a rejection, of the very same ideals that marginalize our everyday existence. It is because of this that Queer Punk Fest will serve as the catalyst towards the coup d’état of this white heteronormative scene. Queer Punk Fest will be an intersectional, trans-inclusive, decolonial extravaganza. As social misfits and agitators, revenge is our first objective. C’mon Southern California, let’s get sickeniiiiiiiing
Queer Punk Fest is currently looking for queer bands & artists, workshoppers, spoken word artists, performance artists, drag queens & kings, organizations to table, a DJ for our dance party, artists to install their work, and ideas and suggestions. We are only taking applications from queer/trans-identified individuals. > If you would like to join us, please send your name, band/org name, identity, contact information, a brief description and example(s) (if possible) of your work to: email@example.com < We will not respond to any applications sent elsewhere. Please include what you’re applying for in the subject line! Okay, sick! Hope to hear from lots of you!
Funny story, we don’t have one yet…. HELP US! We need a big space with rooms for workshops and a common area for tabling and performances. We’re also aiming for parts of L.A. that are accessible by public transport. Aaand because we don’t have a location yet, we don’t have a set date, but we’re aiming for the second weekend of May! We’ll update the tumblr page with info about the location and date when we can finalize them.

Frozen in the hood
how is this the hood. that is clearly a suburbian neighborhood. likeeeeeee can we stop with the casual racism?
For real damn smh
She’s probably studied dance for years and is enjoying the snow, but since she’s black…. yah know she MUST be hood.
God Forbid her name be Rasheeda Jackson. SMH they’ll be making fun all day.
this is how we know “ghetto” and “hood” are synonymous with blackness for white people, no matter what economic class we’re actually in; you will look at us the same way no matter what, so fuck respectability politics and trying to “polite” our way into civil rights
for the fucking comments
By the way, this “ghetto” girl has a name; it’s Allie.
Allie is clearly a talented dancer
Did anyone even check the OP’s blog? The person who made that “frozen in the hood comment” is BLACK.
EDIT: That in no invalidates the above comments but y’all gotta remember that not just white people can think negatively of Black people. Also, check people’s blogs before y’all jump to assumptions. Simple shit
don’t click play.
This scene is really powerful because it shows Elsa, a girl who has been shut in and isolated her whole life, finally accepting herself for who she is. I think the animators and song writers did a really good job at making this a really amazing, memorable piece of art.
