With the recent passing of Robin Williams, we’ve all been thinking and reflecting on his life and the roles that brought everyone so much joy. But while so much attention is given to some of his more stand-out roles, it’s important to remember his crazy versatility as an actor. This guy was more than just Genie and Mrs. Doubtfire - he did a PERFECT Popeye impression, he’s ridiculously great in the dark and funny World’s Greatest Dad, and is weirdly perfect for an adult Peter Pan.

A colorful new patrol car is roaming the streets of Manchester in honor of Pride, decked out in rainbow stripes, the slogan “Police With Pride,” and a decal reading “Let’s End Hate Crime - Report It.”
Labour Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd said: “I am very proud that Greater Manchester Police takes such a visible role at Manchester Pride.
“It sends an important message to Greater Manchester and the world that the service is committed to equality and supports the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people.
“Decking a police car out in rainbow colours isn’t just a colourful statement – it’s a bold one.
“It shows that GMP is on the side of equality. I also hope it will give confidence to any victim of hate crime to come forward and report it.”

just a few of the signs we made today for our rally on april 24 starting at 8:30AM! thanks to everyone who came out.
ICYMI: Big news! YouTube user OneUpdateataTime has captured a straight pride parade on tape! “It’s called every damn street corner. Every day. Everywhere.”
Get it? Here’s a blurb from his description of the video:
I feel there’s a common criticism of any form of pride events or nationals days or any attempt to bring minorities into the light or be represented and that criticism is from a member of an oppressive majority that selfishly goes “but what about US? Where’s OUR day/parade? That’s not equality! I call reverse-ism/phobia!” thus completely missing the point. Pride parades and other events are to break into the hegemony of a single group being the default, to bring the minority into any tiny space they can try and grab in society to allow discussions and exposure that will benefit them by decreasing stigmas and stereotypes surrounding that minority…It doesn’t take away from the space in society that that majority has, it just creates a new one for the minority so they can try and belong too and create a more harmonious society.
What a majestic sight. (h/t the Huffington Post Gay Voices)
