I’m not gonna pass any judgement upon this beautiful flower for sharing her love story with the world via a big fuzzy pink microphone at a Monster Truck rally lobby on a Friday night — because this was basically me last Saturday after one too many glasses of Carlo Rossi Vin Rosé.
Check out her incredibly touching story of how her and her man met (which involves their cousins), below!

!! OMG, RIP: Top AIDS researchers among Malaysia Airlines passengers killed after plane shot down !!

In ‘Reason 1,138,942 the world needs to get its shit together‘ kind of news:

More than 100 delegates and family members of the 20th International AIDS Conference, due to begin Sunday, were on board Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, the Australian, the Star Observer, and the Age reported Friday morning local time.
Those headed to the conference in Melbourne included medical researchers, health workers, and activists. Joep Lange was one of the passengers killed in the jetliner crash in Ukraine on Thursday, the Kirby Institute confirmed in a statement.
Lange was one of several HIV/AIDS researchers and activists on board Flight MH17, according to colleagues on Twitter. They were on their way to the AIDS 2014 conference in Australia which begins on July 20.
“How do we measure how much a person has done for humanity? People like Joep change the course of epidemics.”
Dr. Seema @DoctorYasmin
Lange has been involved in HIV research and treatment since 1983. He worked in particular on pivotal trials in antiretroviral therapy and on the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV.

Also on the flight were Glenn Raymond Thomas, a Geneva-based spokesman for World Health Organization, Pim de Kuijer, an AIDS activist from the Netherlands and a parliamentary lobbyist for Stop AIDS Now!, Martine de Schutter, who worked for organizations associated with the AIDS Fonds foundation and Stop AIDS Now!, and Executive Director Louise van Deth, along with so many others.
While every single life lost is an awful tragedy, one can’t help but feel the weight of losing a group of such prominent voices in the AIDS research field — influences and educators who would have gone on to save so many others. A terrible loss and our thoughts are with their friends and families, along with everyone effected or touched by the crash. RIP Flight MH17!

!! OMG, way to tug on our heart-strings! Archie Andrews will meet his fate while saving his gay friend In ‘ARCHIE’ comic book series !!

Will Archie Andrews die today?! According to Jon Goldwater, co-Ceo of Archie Comics — YES!

The famous freckle-faced comic book icon is meeting his demise in today’s (Wednesday’s) instalment of Life with Archie when he intervenes in an assassination attempt on Kevin Keller, Archie Comics‘ first openly gay character. Andrews’ death, which was first announced in April, will mark the conclusion of the series that focuses on grown-up renditions of Andrews and his Riverdale pals.

Archie Andrews will die taking a bullet for his gay friend Kevin Keller! And the subtext is laid on THICK!

“The way in which Archie dies is everything that you would expect of Archie,” said Jon Goldwater, Archie Comics publisher and co-CEO. “He dies heroically. He dies selflessly. He dies in the manner that epitomizes not only the best of Riverdale but the best of all of us. It’s what Archie has come to represent over the past almost 75 years.”

Keller‘s character first joined Veronica Lodge, Betty Cooper, Jughead Jones and Reggie Mantle in the Archie Comics spin-off Veronica in 2010. He later appeared in his own solo title. In Life with Archie, Keller is a married military veteran and newly elected senator who’s pushing for more gun control in Riverdale after his husband was involved in a shooting.

Archie dies, Riverdale is reborn.”

As sad as we are about the whole dying part — we give a big YES to all of this in terms of the message they’re attempting to send. We think it’s great that not only will the comic tackle gun-control issues (which obviously needs to be heavily addressed at this particular moment in time in the US) but also the camaraderie and strong gay-straight alliance between the friends.

“We wanted to do something that was impactful that would really resonate with the world and bring home just how important Archie is to everyone,” said Goldwater. “That’s how we came up with the story line of saving Kevin. He could have saved Betty. He could have saved Veronica. We get that, but metaphorically, by saving Kevin, a new Riverdale is born.”

RIP Archie!
