(92//365) I just learned from Adam that our kitty Frodo has passed away. He was only a little over than 12 years old. It looks like the cause was suffocation due to choking sometime in the night. We adopted Frodo in the Spring of 2002 from the Doña Ana Humane Society, where I was working at the time. He was the first and only kitten to be picked up by animal control for the season and he was alone, scared, sitting in a ball at the back of the cage and extremely timid. I still remember calling Adam and convincing him that we absolutely needed a kitty and Adam reluctant but eventually agreeing. Baggins, as we more often called him, was the coolest cat. I have so many funny and heartwarming stories about this cat. Please send your love, positive vibes and condolences to Adam.

Old Work — ALYSSA MINAHAN lesbian a la mode. Happy birthday to my most favorite girl! She’s my complete opposite and I’d be completely lost without her. Favorite, I love you beyond words. Someday, you will find someone, who won’t sigh at words like commitment, and whose jaw won’t clench, when you ask them to stay. Someday, you will spit out the word ‘love’ so often, that it will follow water down the drain and into the earth, and you’ll see your work shining on the pavement. Someday, you will be able to make your rent, and still have a few bucks left over to waste on this month’s boyfriend; waste it on yourself. Someday, you will believe in something so deeply, that it alone will be enough to make your feet touch the hardwood floor every morning. Someday, you’ll laugh at all the moments, which at the time, made you feel as if there was nothing to live for, the moments where tomorrow’s chances of occurring, seemed slim to none. Someday, the thoughts that lied in between your hair and the pillow sheets will finally reach your reality.

radar FOTOGRAFIA En el extenso marco que ofrece el 25º Festival de la Luz se inaugura este martes Asylum of the birds, de Roger Ballen. A poco de llegar a Buenos Aires para presentar su última serie, basada en el cielo y los pájaros, la tierra y un grupo de refugiados en un psiquiátrico, Radar recorre su trayectoria y dialoga con este fotógrafo universal radicado en Sudáfrica, que sostiene que su obra no busca capturar la realidad sino transformarla. Desde que comenzó a hacer fotos, en su adolescencia, Roger Ballen se pregunta qué es el arte, qué es ser fotógrafo, qué es ser humano. Sin definirse más que como alguien viviendo una experiencia humana, dedicó años a formarse y a desarrollar carrera como geólogo. Cierta popularidad de Ballen surgió de su alianza creativa con los músicos sudafricanos de Die Antwoord. El video de “I fink u freeky” posicionó mundialmente tanto a la banda como al director gracias a la combinación exacta de sus imaginarios. Blinded. 2005 Nació en Nueva York, en 1950.

OLIVIA BEE Epic Gallery: 150 Years Of Lesbians And Other Lady-Loving-Ladies click here for more posts from “the herstory issue” // “the way we were” I really threw myself into Herstory Month, in June, eating every accessible herstory archive on the internet and spending hours in the library, accumulating massive stacks of borrowed books which I stored at the foot of my bed. My girlfriend was not a big fan of the stacks of books at the foot of the bed. I was looking for words but eventually, also, for pictures. Honestly before tumblr it was difficult to find very much lesbian imagery at all online — it was always the same ten or twelve stock photos — let alone pictures of lesbians taken prior to 2000. I wanted to see an evolution of our community, how we’d grown and changed over the years — and not just in a montage of famous out actresses and models, but pictures of actual people, pictures of women who were active in the community — regular human beings, writers and social activists. So I started collecting them. 150 Years of Lady-Loving-Ladies In The U.S. 1850s
