2013 was a shitty year for a queer person to be in any fandom
so it was probably more of a result of multiple things happening in a short span of time. for me it was kicked off by SPN in the first half of 2013, following by Moffat - getting on my nerves for a long time with the final nail in coffin of Capaldi announcement and dismissal of non-cis-male doctor, OUAT breaking up Mulan and Aurora (yesthankyousomuchforanothertragiclesbianstorylikeIneedthatshit) and the final nail was s3 of bbc Sherlock (and again more what Moffat said behind scenes) that made me decide to retire from any fandom world as such, (Finale of Faking it just justifying my decision, and some other shows as well), but damn world is a sad and blank place and without fandoms even more. (so with phandom it seems relaxing cause I don't have to worry about things that I would worry with TV like representation in characters and such and getting pissed off because as Dan said (I wasn't there for his 2012 thing, but yeah) 'on tumblr people accept, but real life is shit and has tons of judgment' (not exact words, but can't find the ls now) and then have a tv show where the runners treat me as a viewer as shit - well who needs that, not me )
I suspected SPN would be the answer, but yeah I forgot about a lot of the Moffatt stuff ugh. I've been watching The 100 and it was going pretty well and then of course they had to fall into the (yesthankyousomuchforanothertragiclesbianstorylikeIneedthatshit) trap and I'm close to rage-quitting based on some other dumb character choices. Decent queer-friendly fandoms are hard to come by in any year..

It's based on the true story of a queer group in London who supported the UK miner's strike in the 80s, and while not 100% happy - the presence of HIV/AIDs is unavoidable - is a wonderful uplifting tale of solidarity and unity at its core! (though it is also 100% white, and entirely focussed on the G and the L... but still my favourite film!)

I may have dabbled in that fandom.
Mostly for the bassist. I just really liked his style.
You mean Tommy?
