nobody talks about rent enough
"modern media doesnt diversify gays enough. they’re all white m-"
"yeah but what about lesbia-"
"how about interracial couples-"
"what about transgender-"
(you could also argue that she’s nonbinary, as mimi also quotes her saying that she called herself “more than a man than you’ll ever be, and more a woman than you’ll ever get”)
"what about bisexua-"
(anthony rapp, who plays mark, is bisexual too)
4/7 of the main cast are PoC and 4/7 also have AIDS
not to mention this movie is a MUSICAL I MEAN rip jonathan larson
IN CONCLUSION rent is a very important movie/musical
angel’s gender identity is my favorite thing in the world. is she a trans woman? is he a drag queen? are they genderfluid? bigender? angel would probably answer yes to all of those questions just to fuck with you.
Angel is the best part of Rent
And the best thing about all the things mentioned above, is that it’s not the main story line. The AIDS/HIV is a main point in the way that it forces the characters to think about life, since that’s what it’s really about. Living life to the fullest, no matter how broke you are, how much (or little) time you have left, who you’re dating or not, what society may or may not think.
It’s about living life to the fullest without regret. It’s about moving forwards in life and not living in the past. It’s about not letting your baggage hold you back, but figuring out a way to make that baggage as light as possible and live without making it all about said baggage. It’s about love and friendship and family.
RENT is about living life and loving life without regret.
Email from a video from LeakyCon from youtube.
""LeakyCon Portland is just weeks away and it will be our biggest, nerdiest, most awesome fandom celebration yet! We have special guests lined up from Harry Potter and Hunger Games films, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Glee, Rent, The Lizzie Bennet Diares, and Team StarKid, and many more!""

Guys, I just made the best gif ever.
I know it’s really bad quality, but that happens when you use free gif-creator websites instead of having fancy softwares.
IT’S STILL THE BEST GIF EVER.
I wanna commit a crime
Wanna be the cause of a fight
I wanna put on a tight skirt
And flirt with a stranger
