10 TWITTER MOMENTS: KIM PETRAS STANDS UP FOR TRANS RIGHTS

6/17/20
10 Twitter Moments

So I was reading an article the other day that claimed Twitter recently experienced its “saddest fortnight ever.” But although it's been an emotionally draining couple of weeks, I think we can agree this month has proven what a galvanizing force social media can be. It's been genuinely inspiring watching allies and activists around the world taking to their online platforms to push for real change. And while timelines may be slowly starting to return to “normal,” remember this isn't over. Black lives still matter – today and every day. So “stay loud,” use your voice, and keep up the pressure. Our work, after all, is far from done. Check out this week's edition of We Are: The Guard's 10 Twitter Moments, featuring Kim Petras, Lil Nas X, Kacey Musgraves, and more.

KIM PETRAS STANDS UP FOR TRANS RIGHTS

Erm, ended Harry Potter, much? Jokes aside – we officially have no choice but to stan the unapologetic trans pop legend that is Kim Petras! #TransRightsAreHumanRights #JKRowlingIsOverParty

 

THIS TWEET FROM LIL NAS X HAS AGED TERRIBLY

When it comes to tweets that have aged terribly, I have to say this one from Lil Nas X is most definitely up there. Clearly, the “Old Town Road” rapper isn't the positive-energy-manifesting king we hoped he was back in December *sigh*.

 

KACEY MUSGRAVES IS VISITED BY A FAWN

The world is turning to sh*t, so here's a couple of photos of an adorable fawn that recently visited the Kacey Musgraves and Ruston Kelly residence in Nashville to make you smile. YOU'RE SO VERY WELCOME!

HAPPY PRIDE MONTH TO HALSEY

Happy Pride Month to the queer icon herself, Halsey! Oh, and while we're here, can we take a moment to talk about how freaking sweet those curls are? Drop the hair routine ASAP, Ashley!

 

NICKI MINAJ IS TWEETING LIKE A BOOMER

Nicki Minaj tweeting like a boomer is honestly my new aesthetic.

 

JAMES BLAKE AND JAMEELA JAMIL'S PUPPY IS PRECIOUS

James Blake and Jameela Jamil see your adorable fawn, Kacey Musgraves, and raise you THIS! Is anyone else feeling fuzzy from looking at this photo? WE MUST PROTECT PRECIOUS BAROLD AT ALL COSTS!

 

DUA LIPA HAS CHANGED HER HAIR COLOR AGAIN

Dua Lipa's ever-changing hair color has quite frankly been the highlight of my whole entire quarantine. Not to mention I'm getting some serious Gerard Way circa Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys vibes from this particular shade, so I obviously approve.

 

KEHLANI'S DAUGHTER CONTINUES TO BE THE CUTEST

A fawn? Barold? Adeya Nomi? THIS IS TOO MUCH CUTE FOR ONE COLUMN!
