Only a couple of days prior to the Oscars, Nyong’o took home the Essence magazine Black Woman in Hollywood Breakthrough Award to far less pomp and circumstance. In front of a much smaller audience at the Beverly Hills Hotel, a nervous Nyong’o a spoke about a controversial topic rarely discussed in Hollywood.
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.
The person depicted in "Three Spirit" is actually good friend and tumblr user, stormantic!
Stuart Immonen 2014: All-New X-Men #18 (Ink: Wade Von Grawbadger / Color: Marte Gracia) + costume designs
When the original five joined up with Cyclops’ crew in the aftermath of Battle of the Atom, the new chapter of their story was punctuated with new costumes designed by Immonen. As related in this Newsarama article by Chris Arrant, it appears that Marvel largely left Immonen to his own devices and relied on him to deliver something great.
The designs are some of the most contemporary in comics today and balance team cohesiveness with with individual customization. While they appear to abandon the traditional themes these characters have traditionally worn, it’s interesting to note that they hew fairly closely to the color schemes their older counterparts wore as the original incarnation of X-Factor.
