my friend is a professional porn model and a girl we used to know walked up to her and REALLY maliciously said she and her boyfriend were disgusted because her boyfriend had stumbled across nude pictures of my friend online and my friend was like “my photos are currently only available for people who pay so there probably wasn’t a lot of stumbling involved” and sashayed out I am so proud
Arizona State Sen. Steve Gallardo came out as gay yesterday, saying the debate over his state’s controversial pro-discrimination bill inspired him to finally be publicly honest about his sexual orientation.
"I am gay, I’m a Latino, I’m a state senator and it’s OK," Gallardo said at a press conference, according to the Arizona Republic. …
"After I stood up on the floor and argued against 1062, as I’ve done on many bills before, I sat down and said, ‘Wow. This bill affects me. It affects me directly,’" Gallardo said at the press conference, according to the Phoenix New Times.
"Seeing the people out there, protesting. I thought, it’s time," he added. "It’s time to let people know about me. And to send people a message. I’m more interested in letting people who struggle with this know that it’s okay."
