2018 Golden Globe Hollywood Queers say #TIMESUP

2017 was the year we all finally start to see more and more LGBTQ+ representation in the mainstream media (Although most of us would wish for more). The 2018 Golden Globes were a big year for women in the entertainment industry. With all the news coming out about Harvey Weinstein and other notorious abusers within Hollywood, women across the world have said “Time’s Up”. Women throughout Hollywood have come together to start the Time’s Up movement, and they all agreed to wear black in solidarity. The Times Up movement was established to create a legal defense fund, “for individuals who have experienced sexual harassment or related retaliation in the workplace.” So far, they have raised over $15 million dollars. Many of these celebrities brought gender and racial justice activists as their guests. Some of our favorite LGBTQ+ celebrities joined in the movement and dressed in all black to show their support.

“The rights of women have always — since the beginning of time, men in general have been threatened by the power of women, and have always tried to find a way to regulate, control, or figure us out in some way.”

Lena Waithe

 “Grateful for this night. Grateful to everyone wearing black. Grateful for this sisterhood of @timesupnow”

“…Never before have we come together in this manner to strategize and implement concrete methods that will change the fabric of our industry and ensure the toppling of a power imbalance we have endured for far too long. Honored to have a part in this monumental change and to join all women across Hollywood in saying: #TIMESUP! #whywewearblack”
