For those of you who may have a short week and are looking for something different to watch over the holiday weekend I wanted to share a great documentary that a very dear friend of mine produced called A Place To Live: The Story of Triangle Square.
Here’s the synopsis:
"A Place to Live" follows the journey of seven individuals as they attempt to secure a home in Triangle Square, the nation’s first affordable housing facility for LGBT seniors. Since demand far exceeded the number of available units, a lottery system was established to select who would live in the complex. Not everyone will be chosen. "A Place to Live" is both a moving portrait of gay and lesbian seniors on the fringe of our community and the triumph of the opening of this historic building.
You can watch it streaming at the above link. Check it out if you get a chance. Even if it doesn’t sound like the type of thing you’d be interested in you might be surprised at how moving these stories are.
Here’s to a great week ahead. I’ll see you guys Monday night for the Sleepy Hollow live-tweet-palooza. Same headless time, same headless station.
There has been a terrible lack of posts recognizing the Philippine Typhoon and that’s why I’m making this post. The Philippines just had the WORST typhoon in history called, Haiyan. Now if you have no idea about the severity, the wind speeds of this typhoon was about 250 mph, which is THREE AND A HALF TIMES THE SPEED OF THE WINDS OF HURRICANE KATRINA. imagine the damage Katrina did to the US, a developed country. The Philippines is a Third world country. Most of the people in this country live in SHACKS MADE OUT OF TRASH. It is estimated that about 10,000 PEOPLE DIED. Dead bodies literally litter the streets and are STUCK IN TREES. IF YOU GIVE ANY SHITS TODAY ABOUT FELLOW HUMANITY YOU BETTER REBLOG THIS. IM NOT ONLY DOING THIS BECAUSE MY FAMILY IS FILIPINO BUT BECAUSE THIS STORM WAS THE WORST IN HISTORY. GOD BLESS THE SOULS LOST THERE. My parents were seriously almost on the verge of tears and almost screaming. We didn’t lose anybody in our family, but it has got to hurt to know that the place you came from is IN SHAMBLES. Pls spread this if you care
I have a lot of Filipino friends and people I cherish a lot! If you could donate to the cause that would be great!
