In a victory activists were unsure they’d get, Uganda’s Constitutional Court overturned the country’s draconian Anti-Homosexuality Act today, declaring the anti-LGBT law “null and void” because of a parliamentary technicality in how it was passed.
The court determined that when members of Parliament passed the law in December 2013, Speaker Rebecca Kadaga had not established quorum — a required minimum number of members present to vote — effectively invalidating the law.

I’m may regret getting involved with this.
All of these anonymous quidditch blogs that operate similar to “Gossip Girl” need to think about what they are doing. Really think about it. You are allowing others to single out members of our community and say whatever they want about them. When those comments are negative and unnecessary, that is called cyber-bullying. Most of us are in college or have graduated. Shouldn’t we have let bullying go in elementary school? All of these anonymous posts are cold hearted and actually hurt others. And the owners of the blogs who are saying “Well, I’m just posting what people are telling me,” need to stop. You are just as bad for allowing these things to be said, and you disgust me for being such enablers. And while I’m at it, the admirers posts that are sexual and graphic aren’t any better. I know I would feel very uncomfortable if someone anonymously said something about me similar to what I’ve seen posted that has been considered “admiration.”
I know this post won’t make a difference. These blogs won’t go away because of me alone. This post is for others who are upset, disturbed and tired of the cyber-bullying in the quidditch community. Most importantly, this post is for the victims of those posts. Most of the people in our community do not agree with the negativity, and if you ever need help, you know you have a friend in me. No, I’m not a perfect person. I have definitely expressed more than my fair share of opinions in regards to people and this community but never on the Internet and never anonymously. This is not me being #butthurt. This is me trying to be a decent human being.
Some of the most badass photos I could find from this year’s Quidditch World Cup.
y’all make sure you reblog this version with the photographer credits in the actual body of the post!!!
Interested in learning a bit more about our World Cup champs, U of Texas? Jay Hubert put together a phenomenal mini-doc featuring the top team during their 2013 Fall season. Check it out and pass it along!
"Texas Quidditch, the (TWO-TIME) world champion varsity quidditch team of the University of Texas, won Quidditch World Cup VI in April 2013. However, they lost almost half of their team to graduation the following month, and faced a number of hurdles in rebuilding their team the following semester. Led by returning co-captain Augustine Monroe, Texas Quidditch reemerged with new faces and a new personality in Fall 2013, but with the same commitment to winning and hitting opponents hard that made them an unstoppable force at the previous World Cup. This film documents the ups and downs of their Fall 2013 season, and lends proof to the argument that quidditch is a real sport for real athletes."
