These glorious times, as we enjoy yet another brief sparkle of LGBT rights (obviously not in Russia), one can wonder how our world could be, if the vast human sexuality was free from pseudo moralities and archaic superstitions.
In this spirit American photographer Lindsay Morris has been documenting over the past three years, a four-day camp for gender nonconforming boys and their parents.
Morris on her project:
Camp You Are You (whose name has been changed to protect the privacy of the participants) offers a temporary safe haven where gender-variant boys can freely express their interpretations of femininity alongside their parents and siblings. These images represent the spirit of the children as they shine in an atmoshpere of support. Here they can be true to their inner nature without feeling the need to look over their shoulders…This experience can be very emotional for the parents, especially the families who are new to camp and are experiencing this kind of group acceptance for the very first time.
I would really love to follow the kids into adulthood and see what kind of relationships they develop, I want to witness the evolution, knowing from where they started and see how life is going to play out for them—hopefully happily—and I think they’re going to have a better transition into adulthood than the generation proceeding them.
“Welcome To Sochi 2014” poster series by artist Vasily Slonov (visit full collection here), is cencored in Russia for ridiculing the 2014 Olympic games in Sochi and exposing Vladimir Putin’s continuous violations of human rights.
Putin’s most recent laws include the criminalization of the “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations” as well as the “provision permitting the government to arrest and detain gay or pro-gay tourists for up to 14 days, before deportation“.

Today is the 101 birthday of Alan Turing (23 June 1912 – 7 June 1954), a mathematician best-known for helping decipher the code created by German Enigma machines in the Second World War, and for being one of the founders of computer science and artificial intelligence. He was a visionary (a hero to Google), a long distance-runner (capable of world-class marathon standards), and a gay man before his time.
A lot can be said about this great man, nevertheless this woman has chosen to draw on his name in order to object to gay marriage. Last week, in the midst of the nationwide protests, the Brazilian congressional human rights committee approved Feliciano’s “gay cure” law that would allow psychologists to treat homosexuality as a disorder or pathology.
War above culture, religion above politics, spectacle above education… Über Alles # Fuck Off
