Laquisha originates in ‘Lakeisha’, a Swahili name meaning ‘favourite’. The popularity of Laquisha originates in the French influence on black people in America, where the ‘La-’ naming prefix became popularized among freed black slaves.

I don’t care about your wedding.

I don’t care about your wedding. I don’t care about your wedding. I don’t care about your wedding. I don’t care about your wedding.

gaymish:

People aren’t gay to spite you,
They aren’t lesbian to make you feel uncomfortable,
They don’t tell you about their sexuality because they want to sleep with you,
They don’t dress up as the opposite gender to attention seek,
They’re not transgendered for your own fascination,
We don’t hold LGBTQ Pride to make us more integrated with non-LGBTQ people.

The LGBTQ community owe nothing to the straight institution, and we do nothing for you.
Stop making it about you.
