DO YOU CARE ABOUT MEDIA REPRESENTATION?
Our mission is to reach equal media representation for the LGBT community, women, people of color, people with disabilities, and those that live at the intersection of those identities.
There are many ways to fight for equal representation, and one of them is to help diverse folks enter and thrive in the entertainment industry.
We’re launching our Mirror Scholarship & Fellowship to provide monetary awards for diverse and underrepresented youth and independent media makers who are pursuing careers in the media and performing arts.
We’re offering incredible perks from stars who are already helping to make our media more diverse and representative of all of us, including:
- Dan Bucatinsky (Scandal, The Comeback)
- Chris Colfer (Glee)
- Darren Criss (Glee)
- Lea DeLaria (OITNB)
- Amy Fox (The Switch)
- Lisa Kudrow (Friends, Web Therapy, The Comeback)
- Sean Maher (Firefly, Arrow, Son of Batman)
- Dylan Marron (Welcome to Night Vale, Whatever this is)
- Jasika Nicole (Fringe, Scandal, Welcome to Night Vale)
- Crissle West (The Read)
- Julie Vu (The Switch)
- and more!
Because representation matters.

I feel that anyone who believes Romeo & Juliet is about some kind of Great and Timeless Love TM* needs to see this.
WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT THIS TODAY IN MY SHAKESPEARE CLASS.
If you go and actually read what Romeo says to Benvolio in the first scene, you will realize that he is only upset because HE WANTED ROSALINE’S BODY AND SHE SAID NO AND SO ROMEO WAS MOPING AND PITCHING A FIT ABOUT IT. Then, the second he lays eyes on Juliet, he’s basically saying
During the balcony scene, Romeo talks about how he scaled the wall of the garden to see Juliet. That is not romantic. That is disrespectful to her. This is a private area of the Capulet home, and Capulet built the wall around it to protect his daughter. This was a time when a woman’s virtue was the most important thing she owned. If Juliet was found with a man in this very private part of her home, everyone would think she was no longer a virgin, her reputation would be ruined, and it would be much harder, if not impossible, for her father to make a good marriage.
Speaking of good marriages, Count Paris is seen as the bad guy because he “comes between” Romeo and Juliet. Capulet had arranged for Paris to marry Juliet in 2 years time, when she would be 16, in a time when most women were already married and mothers by the time they were Juliet’s age at (almost but not quite) 14. Most fathers would have already had their daughters married by now, but he wants to wait two more years AND PARIS IS OKAY WITH THAT. Not only that, but Paris is young (her father could have had her married to a 60 year old man), titled (he’s a fucking Count), wealthy (again, he’s a count, which means Juliet will have financial stability), and, from what we see of him, he is a very good guy. Capulet could have done a LOT worse in choosing his son-in-law.
Finally, here’s something to consider: Juliet was 13, Romeo was 17. Their relationship lasted 3 days, defied their parents, and ended in the deaths of 6 people.
If I ever hear you say that Romeo and Juliet is the greatest love story ever told, I will bitch slap you.
That is all.
THANK YOU! SOMEBODY FINALLY PUT IT IN WORDS FOR ME
It wasn’t a romance. Shakespeare never wrote romances. It was a fucking tragedy you dumb cunts.

i am so tired of seeing all of these relatable text posts pasted onto tv show screencaps i need summer to end so some of you dont have the free time to be doing stuff like this anymore
Can we talk about how Hairspray is a story where a not-conventionally-attractive girl gets the hot guy in the end without having to Become “Pretty.” Because we need more stories like that.
It’s also story about breaking down the barriers of racism which we also need more of.
And it’s about nice hair and cheesy dance moves, more things we need more of
It’s a movie where John Travolta plays a chic, which we need more of
