After slowly lighting a cigarette and throwing a bit of side-eye, John S. Blake casually throws some required reading materials for the class on the table.

“Because you don’t know the history or choose to ignore it,” Blake, who goes by @blackfluidpoet on the service, says bluntly.

And after running through a concise and sharp recent history of what queer folk has endured, Blake summed it up well.

“You weren’t here for the bashings and the beatings. You wouldn’t even be making a video if it wasn’t for them.”

No word yet on whether or not there will be an exam.
