in 7 years its going to be the 20s again so we can bring back swing music and the aesthetics of that era but keep modern values who’s with me
I never get tired of this photo.
Ella Fitzgerald was not allowed to play at Mocambo because of her race. Then, one of Ella’s biggest fans made a telephone call that quite possibly changed the path of her career for good. Here, Ella tells the story of how Marilyn Monroe changed her life:
“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt… she personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front table every night. She told him – and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status – that the press would go wild. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. The press went overboard. After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.”
jesus christ this is so much better than all of the “you don’t have to be size zero!!!!!” and “i don’t mind living in a man’s world if i can be a woman!!!!!!!” bullshit related to marilyn monroe i see.
this is the actual best!!!!!!!!!!!
and pretty much every famous “marilyn monroe” quote isn’t even hers and i’m pretty sure no one even knows she did cool shit like this??
If I was brave.. I would possibly get this tattooed on me.

This is important to see and understand for everyone. Please, if you see someone in a public restroom that you think might not belong there because they don’t look like you, don’t scream or yell at them, have some compassion and go about your business.
^^ 90% of trans* kids don’t feel safe at school, and one part of the problem is that they have no safe access to bathrooms. kids have been expelled for using the “wrong” bathroom, others are bullied or beat up, trans adults are chased out by security, harassed, and humiliated. something as simple as going to the bathroom becomes a daunting, scary, and even dangerous endeavor and its got to stop. we all deserve privacy, dignity, and safety in the restroom.
“But if you forget to reblog Madame Zeroni, you and your family will be cursed for always and eternity.”
