Born in 1946 (and other links)

I have nothing original to say this week, so I’m going to post two links to videos and one link to an article. You will need to select the links to view.

The first video is a reminder of where we would be today if Great Britain had refused to allow refugees from Zanzibar by way of India in the late 1960’s, thanks to Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey giving a huge shout out to my favorite musician of all time.

The second video is as beautiful as it is heartbreaking. Eugene Lee Yang’s “I’m Gay.” Please consider donating to the Trevor Project for Pride month. The link is below/to the side of the image.

There’s also a post going around the internet about picking a fight with someone 31 years older than you are (thanks, Bieber!). Freddie Mercury is second on the list of celebrities who would be 31 years older than me. Guess who’s number one. Donald fucking Trump. Also 31 years older than me: Cher, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Pat Sajak. That’s right. Pat Sajak and Donald Trump are the same age. Let that sink in…

I don’t want to pick a fight with anyone this old, but I would love it if all of the living celebrities born in 1946 ganged up on our current president and gave him hell for being the worst example of humanity born that year.

Also, Sajak wore it better. #sad
