The thoughts of one Veronica
These are just some of the many ways members of the LGBT community identify themselves in a beautiful photo series from San Francisco-based photographer Sarah Deragon.
Deragon’s “The Identity Project” has taken her around the country as she “seeks to explore the labels we choose to identify with when defining our gender and sexuality.” Her portraits show the amazing diversity and vibance of a queer community that for too long has been defined by outsiders.

This is great and all, but I would love to see some butches who identify as butch.
I honestly have so many questions and critiques of this project. But I also want to know, what is “three spirit”. I’m not really finding anything through the Googles and figured some of y’all might know.
Corvids are the only animals intelligent enough to recognize ‘cool’ behaviour. Here we see a crow working to impress its peers, and largely succeeding. Good for you, crow.

I’m watching the Michio Kaku Daily Show interview, and he’s talking about how eventually we’ll be able to save our personalities as data and upload it and essentially live forever. Which sounds awesome, but that’s literally the origin story of the Cylons, so I’ll be interested to see how that turns out.

I love individuals who relate to to surreal art, to space, to plants, to glitches and static and technology or to the all-powerful landscapes of the organic world, to both, to nothing, who see themselves in abstract places… In scary monsters or delicate flowers… I love you all, I don’t feel like I am alone… I love you all and we are not alone, we are strong. !!

Look, I’m glad ‘12 Years [A Slave]’ got made and it’s wonderful that people are seeing it and there is another view of what happened in America. But I’m not real sure why Steve McQueen wanted to tackle that particular sort of thing.
[‘Fruitvale Station’] explains things like the shooting of Trayvon Martin, the problems with stop and search, and is just more poignant. America is much more willing to acknowledge what happened in the past: ‘We freed the slaves! It’s all good!’ But to say: ‘We are still unnecessarily killing black men’ – let’s have a conversation about that.

I think in light of 12 Years a Slave winning the Oscar for Best Picture, this needs to be remembered. Because it is a very important point in terms of the palatability of 12 Years a Slave and why Fruitvale Station didn’t even get nominated when it has such acclaim outside of the Oscar world.

First Muslim mayor of Canada, urgh, why couldn’t you be the mayor of Toronto?!
Here’s to democracy, may you get the government you deserve.
I love that our mayor is such a celebrity, haha.
