Here are some details from my 40th! 🌸 A lot of the design of the party originated from the invitations that @andreaghickey designed for me many months ago. I found Andrea because one of my favorite follows on social meeds @bobbyfinger shouted her out after the Buzzfeed layoffs where she had worked as an illustrator and I thought, “well this is perfect; maybe she would like to illustrate my invites while she finds another big job!” And she did! I had the idea that since it was a wedding to myself, the invites could be wedding like but a little f*cked up, I wanted all my favorite things wrapped up in flowers and vines and Andrea nailed it(scroll to the last pic for the invite)! Then we found @amyabbottevents who is based in Cabo (maybe @itsmeraypadilla found her? Probably he did 💜) and after a five minute call, she totally understood my vibe and made it all happen in the easiest way ever. I basically just wanted it to be an explosion of color, like what I feel like on the inside, I guess? Oh! A huge shout out to DJ Alex from Cabo! He was amazing and even played a Tori Amos remix of Raspberry Swirl for me, (probs against his better judgement😂) No one stopped dancing the whole night.💜 The menu @florafarms put together was incredible (the potatoes❤️😭) and if you haven’t been there I highly recommend it, it’s so insanely magical. And a huge thank you goes to @itsmeraypadilla and Marc, who figured out logistics so I wouldn’t have to. 🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸
Nope, this isn’t a plotline out of #YouNetflix. 😳John Stamos opened his very first art show, featuring works that explore his complicated relationship with teen idolatry and a Tiger Beat editor who later went on to marry serial killer Richard Ramirez, AKA the "Night Stalker." Hear the chilling story at the link in bio.
After this, Costco told me that I wouldn’t “Becoming” back to this store. @MichelleObama
Trailblazing dancer Sono Osato in The Kissing Bandit (1949), with Frank Sinatra. Born in Omaha in 1919 to a Japanese father and an Irish-French Canadian mother who married in Iowa, because their interracial union was illegal in Nebraska at the time. At 14 years old she became the youngest member and the first American to join the famed Ballets Russe de Monte-Carlo, and after returning to the US, she joined the American Ballet Theatre. After Pearl Harbor her father was detained in Chicago under the US government’s Japanese Internment policy, and Sono was banned from performing in California because of her Japanese background. In 1943 she made her Broadway debut in “One Touch of Venus” and in 1944 she originated the role of Ivy Smith in “On the Town.” Sono married Moroccan-born entrepreneur Victor Elmaleh, and their union lasted for over 70 years. In 2006, she founded a scholarship program which offers retraining grants for retired dancers entering second careers. She died in her Manhattan home on December 26, 2018 at the age of 99.
“There is no pride in how LGBTQ immigrants are treated in this country and there can be no celebration with an administration that has the ability to keep us detained and in danger or release us to freedom.” – Jennicet Gutiérrez (@jenctegtz), June 2015 . On June 24, 2015, four years ago today, a number of the most prominent leaders of the LGBT rights movement gathered at the invitation of then-President Barack Obama for a White House Pride celebration. Just days before the Supreme Court announced its decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, striking bans on same-sex marriage, the White House ceremony was meant to be one of good cheer. . Near the beginning of Obama’s remarks, as he mentioned the ongoing violence directed at trans women of color in the U.S., a shout cut through the crowd: “President Obama,” a woman yelled, “release all LGBTQ immigrants from detention and stop all deportations!” . Jennicet Gutiérrez, an undocumented trans activist and founding member of @familiatqlm, hadn’t intended to speak up during the event; once there, however, she realized she had an opportunity to speak for those at greatest risk. . It wasn’t the first time Obama faced interruptions over his immigration policies, but it was the first time he responded with pure dismissiveness. . “You’re in my house. Shame on you,” he snapped, before asking security to remove Gutiérrez, who continued shouting as other activists booed her and chanted “OBAMA!” . "Obama’s argument seems to be that if you’re invited to a party, it’s only polite not to criticize the host,” @1demerith wrote days later. "But when the host is in charge of a system that leads to members of a community he’s supposed to be celebrating being routinely abused and assaulted, and he has so far taken little action to address it, then breaking this rule is justified." . Jennicet Gutiérrez spoke truth to power exactly thirty-two years after Sylvia Rivera famously confronted establishment gays at New York’s Pride festivities. Today, as trans women and queer immigrants remain the most marginalized in our community, maybe we can start listening to those brave enough to speak up. #Resist

This is not a dream but the surreal reality of the relentlessly beautiful terrain of Iceland. Just driving for hours, with my friend Robert, then stopping to visit the grave of Bobby Fischer in the yard of a white clapboard church; a stones throw from an enclosed area where horses grazed, and where a white one suddenly advanced, as if the unicorn had broken through the metallic threads of a Cloisters tapestry. .
Stop what you’re doing and watch @yg’s music video for “Hard Bottoms & White Socks”
Adventure! Block Island!
It all started at Burning Man. @thephluidproject founder Rob Smith attended the free-spirited desert festival in 2017 and promptly went home, quit his corporate job, traveled the world and then returned to New York City to create his vision for a gender-free, nonbinary store. Rob opened @thephluidproject in 2018, and the business now carries multiple brands and collaborations as well as its own label, which has created all of the official merch for World Pride this year 🌈❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 #pride

This week got my head spinning like....
It was March 25, 1934, #BabeRuth was almost 40 years old and in his last spring training in St. Petersburg. #TheBambino was determined to leave his mark on the Sunshine City. - When he stepped up to bat, #TheSultanofSwat hit one out of the ballpark and, on one bounce, it landed on the second floor of the nearby West Coast Inn - 624 feet away. - The legendary slugger never held back when he was on home plate - - "If I'd just tried for them dinky singles I could've batted around six hundred!” - Available now, only at rootsofbaseball.com.

The Fly's Eye • Structure designed in 1965 by Buckminster Fuller and located in @miamidesigndistrict . Inspired by the eye of a fly, the dome was an idea of the an affordable, portable home of the future, with windows and openings in the dome to hold solar panels and systems for water collection, thus allowing the dome to be self sufficient. #Miami #Florida #miamidesigndistrict #miamiphotography shot on @insta360
