63 years ago today, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to an unjust, cruel, racist system in the Jim Crow South. By sitting, she stood tall. We’re grateful for her and for all who so courageously stood and stand on the side of justice, freedom and peace.

The drag queen from this photo has spoken up about the photo.
I won’t speak for all liberals, but I’d like to see a future where it isn’t a big deal for a woman in full modesty garb to sit next to a drag queen in NYC. It’s become a bit of a sensation, but her and I were just existing. The freedom to simply be yourself in a sea of people who aren’t like you is a freedom we all deserve.
The central irony is that this isn’t some hypothetical future–it’s just present day reality. This is a picture of two ordinary people going about their normal lives despite how haters want to politicize it lmao. So the underlying message is not “future liberals want” it’s “people conservatives want to eradicate”

This future is my present and I love it, even the publicly owned transportation.
