Thanksgiving

After Bonfire night is Thanksgiving! Sorry for my last (now deleted for those who saw it) post saying it was the next holiday up, since Thanksgiving isn’t the next holiday coming up (also tell us if we are missing a holiday, or forget to post about one. We are covered for famous American holidays and British ones, but we might not know about a certain religious holiday or country specific).

So, Thanksgiving! Submit queer related drawings, comics, stories, etc related to Thanksgiving, and/or what you are thankful for (for example my last post with the brides).

Ideas:

  1. (Queer related) what you are thankful for
  2. Queer couple doing Thanksgiving things
  3. Rainbow turkey or other rainbow things
  4. Whatever! Come up with something cool! :D

We’re aware that this holiday has negative connotations relating to Native American history, and we’re not in any way advocating or celebrating what happened to them. However, having a time of year in which we can be thankful for what we have and reflect on that is something to be valued.
We don’t want to skip this one because it’s so important to so many people but neither do we want to ignore its history.

Remember, Remember, The Fifth of November

For those of us who are Brits, the holiday coming up on Saturday is Bonfire Night also known as Firework Night also known as Guy Fawkes night.

It’s a night when we Brits celebrate a group of religious terrorists, who included Guy Fawkes though he wasn’t an important member despite his fame, and how they failed to blow up the Houses of Parliament, the government and the King.

Yeah, we have a holiday that’s lasted centuries that is one great big ‘take that for screwing up at being a terrorist!’ celebration.

Traditionally, it’s been the main holiday of this time of year over here, there are fireworks and sparklers, and bonfires. Lots of fun, lots of light and lots of colour. Usually celebrated with family and friends.

So, in honour of that, any queer artwork or anything else that fits those things are welcome, even if they aren’t related to firework night specifically.

No jokes about Edward Cullen though, please?

Also, an apology to anybody who celebrates Diwali - I just realised that was in October this year. So apologies there, hope you had a good one!

Fun fact:

Searching the terms “thanksgiving” + “*insert queer term here*” on Deviantart gives you some interesting things, most not relating to what you even searched for.

Hello everyone! We are NOT dead. We have just been hibernating.

Here at MyQueerValentine we have realized that we can include the other holidays as well as Valentine’s day. So for the next holiday, Halloween, it would be cool to see what stories, art, or other things you come up with that we can show on this blog that are queer and romance related (but nothing sexually explicit. As in, no pictures of people having sex, but shirtless is fine as are mentions of sex as long as it isn’t graphic).

Ideas for Halloween:
Queer couple costumes
Queer romance related halloween stories/art

Halloween isn’t as easy as other holidays (Kurt/Blaine singing “Baby it’s Cold Onside" anyone?) but I am sure there is stuff out there/ideas.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

To everyone out there, be you single or not, no matter your sexual or romantic orientation, no matter your gender identity or expression or anything else…. have a good day.

This tumblr is still accepting submissions and despite its name will remain open to them through the year.

But yes, have a good day people. And to those out there who, like me, are single and feeling a bit left out - you aren’t the only one feeling like that. Group hug and cake?
