I love these collections of selfies with Redefining Realness. They’ve given me such life today.
I hope you reblog and share the stories folks have shared about their experiences of #RedefiningRealness! This storysharing project is so important to me.
BOTTOM RIGHT, Y’ALL! Heyyyyyy Janet Mock
Surreal furniture by Lila Jang
The strange and surreal furniture designer and Korean artist Lila Jang, who in his last series likes to twist and distort the classic French furniture of the 18th century. Lila Jang studied design and Fine Arts in Paris in Seoul, and has already participated in numerous exhibitions worldwide.
Mostly I’m just feeling bad for this furniture. Like, YOU TRIED REALLY HARD TO BE FURNITURE THAT PEOPLE WOULD WANT TO USE, YOU REALLY DID. BUT YOU DIDN’T QUITE GET THERE.
I just want to give all of these a gold star sticker.
Reblogged because awesome design and that comment. You tried really, really hard, chair…
I am so fucking proud of myself.
For those of you who were curious about whether or not I socked my ED in the mouth today by making a meal with my own hands using a stove and knives and things from ingredients that I bought and prepared and whether said meal was delicious, I did, and it was.
Also, I cooked it with another person around - a prospect which was both paralyzing and mortifying until I did it.
"At the ugliest times, the politics of respectability—the idea that individuals can defeat systems of oppression by modifying their behavior and/or presentation to be more “acceptable” or “deserving”—reared its head and diverted our attention from real people’s pain and suffering. Children were being shot dead in the streets, and we were debating whether their pants sagged too low. Their schools were being closed, and we talked about whether they had good father figures in their home. They were stopped, frisked and beaten by police, and we somehow managed to chastise them for littering.
This is the current state of discussion about racism: one that places the onus on those who are oppressed to comport themselves according to the rules that oppress them rather than eliminating the system. The problem is that there is no escape. You can do everything “right,” obey all of the rules, be exemplary in every way, and racism still does its work. Respectability politics are not rooted in fact or reality, only in a false notion of individualism that upholds structural oppression."
More than half of all LGBT related deaths in 2012 were trans women and people on this site are worried about “cisphobia”
i need to reblog this twice
Keep Calm Drag On is a short documentary featuring the incomparable drag duo, Isis Mirage and Coco Ferocha. It details their burgeoning drag careers, the challenges they’ve faced since moving to the UK, and, most importantly, what their drag personas mean to them. This film was directed and edited by yours truly and shot on location in West Sussex and Brighton, UK. It was an honour and a pleasure getting a chance to meet and work with Isis and Coco, when two years ago I was watching their reviews while I cooked dinner.
Stay tuned for the gag reel!
I’m so glad things are going well for them. They are #inspirational.
