Every year I see the same Facebook statuses and tweets around MLK weekend or Atlanta pride. “You can’t afford to go. Why you worried about what they doing with their money?”
This is the only subject I find that we can’t discuss on any social media platform without the girls getting upset. Say one wrong word about anybody going to Atlanta this weekend and they will crucify you.
To be honest some of y’all asses really can’t afford to go but still go and it’s the truth. Some of them can’t afford to go that’s why they’re mad and going in on social media and staying at home. So who’s right? Well if you look at like this. If you had to set up a payment arrangement and have just enough to get there then you should stay your ass at home but you won’t.
“Why are you worried where they wanna go?” – twitter gay subtweets

Looking at some of the people I’ve seen talk about going could use the money for other things but I honestly don’t care. I’m one of the few who gets no life from being around gays that much. I’ll pooch around for a second but I have to be tipsy. Once the alcohol wears off I realize where I’m at. I’m ready to go. I might be weird but that’s just me.
Can you afford to go is a legitimate question not just for this event but for every other weekend trip as well. Ask yourself if something happens and you have to stay a little longer can you afford to? Do I have any emergency money in case something happens? Will I be able to pay my rent on TIME in 2 weeks? These questions are important if you wanna take the trip or already here.
If you caught a bus here….. Bless. I just don’t want you to get back home Monday and trying to figure out how you gone get all your stuff out that apartment in the next 30 days.
If you’re one of the ones who wait every year to throw shade from your bed cause you don’t have the social skills to bond shut your ass up too. Let these folks do whatever they want. I know me and others are tired of seeing this debate on social media from the same people every year. Shit getting old.
Anyway, let me get back to shading the girls on Twitter about being in the city and sleeping in a hotel room with 5 other queens with 2 beds 38 miles from the festivities. I’ll holla!
Are you here for MLK Weekend and have enough money to pooch around the city and still pay your bills?
‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race’ Star Chi Chi DeVayne Passes Away at 34-Years-Old
Zavion Davenport, better known as RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Chi Chi DeVayne has died at the young age of 34, fellow alum Trinity K. Bonet confirmed on Instagram today.
The Drag Race contestant had been diagnosed with scleroderma, also called crest syndrome, back in 2018.
Fans and other contestants of the show had been sharing the DeVayne’s payment information to assist with the overwhelming cost of hospital bills. Shea Coulee and Priyanka had been especially involved in raising funds for their fellow alum.
‘Real Housewives of Potomac’ star Candiace Dillard Makes Fatphobic Comment Towards Blogger and Suggest That He “Drop Dead”
*deep negro spiritual sigh* There are very few things that truly anger me. Somehow, Candiace, a woman whose mouth seems to get her beat up often, has found one of those few buttons with her latest statement.
So, here I am, minding my fat ass business when I see this:
Rumor has it that she was talking about Kyle from The Black Socialites. It really doesn’t matter who she was talking about, but I guess we’ll never know because she didn’t have the courage to say a name. She did have the courage, however, to talk about her involvement with “plots” against other cast members. She was able to talk for two hours, under the glow of her pale husband’s flickering TV screen, about absolutely nothing of substance.
There are uprisings happening, a pandemic happening, but she’s worried about “plotting” in the DMV. We just passed the 6th anniversary of Michael Brown’s death. That’s in her backyard. That’s a pain that she should be deconstructing. Instead she chooses to attack a fat Black man who is working hard to bring her show press.
I’ll end with the victim’s words, and we can all go back to not knowing Candiace exists:
Trump Administration Cuts Protections for Transgender Americans
On Friday, the Trump administration announced it would be rolling back an Obama-era rule protecting transgender Americans from discrimination in health care.
Under the Obama administration, Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act expanded the definition of sex discrimination to include discrimination based on one’s gender identity. Under a revised version of the rule, the Department of Health and Human Services will enforce Section 1557 “by returning to the government’s interpretation of sex discrimination according to the plain meaning of the word ‘sex’ as male or female and as determined by biology” beginning in mid-August. In other words, doctors and insurance companies receiving funding from the Fed can legally refuse any patient needing transition-related medical care.
Of course, as quickly as the rule was finalized, many LGBTQ+ organizations including the ACLU,announced intentions to sue the Trump administration over this new language. “The Trump admin has issued a rule that will embolden health care discrimination against transgender people.. All while a global pandemic is occurring.” said the ACLU in a tweet.
Forget a global pandemic, ACLU. Friday’s announcement came on the fourth anniversary of the Pulse nightclub tragedy, a mass shooting at a popular Florida gay nightclub that left 49 people and the shooter dead.
President Trump has made it clear how he feels about the nearly 1.4 million transgender people in this country, his fellow Americans – he doesn’t feel anything.
