As we travel through the various time zones, looks have to be adjusted.
This is what the cast of a Stonewall movie should look like, not what’s being cast.
These are just a few of the beautiful, incredible, unbelievably brave people who made our movement possible. Pay respect to the people who were involved in the Stonewall Riots by boycotting this planned whitewashed film about cis gay men and drag queens because it’s false and disrespectful to the trans women of color and the other extremely important marginalized groups that sparked the movement we have and benefit from today. Don’t allow this movie to further perpetuate the whitewashing of history and lies about who really was fighting in the Stonewall Riots.
If you’re looking for an awesome rainy day or ‘It’s way too hot to go outside today’ activity, why not have a go at Barbie doll mummification? It’s all kinds of morbid, geeky fun. Heather and her daughter Izzy started with a trip to the library and some research to create an adorably macabre step-by-step “How to Make a Mummy” list. Then the gathered and/or made all the necessary materials. Barbie’s internal organs and ceremonial death mask are paper cutouts. They used a seam ripper in place of the special tool that ancient Egyptians used to pull the brain out through the nose and a shoebox for the sarcophagus and burial chamber. They also included a tiny toy kitty, because they were sacred to the Egyptians and sometimes part of the burial process.

“I still recall the yellow-white flash of queasiness, the mortification: a sense of powerlessness and an utter lack of recourse.”
What is it like to be fictionalized in a novel? Michelle Huneven on her first experience.
Having had this experience as well, I continue to vacillate between mortification and feeling incredibly awkward, with perhaps a scintilla of gratification lurking therein.This particular fictional portrait of myself was remarkably flattering and idealized beyond almost all recognition, were it not for some telling details (such as naming the character after his nickname for me). Being so abashed, I’ve never told him about having read it, because I’ve absolutely no idea what to say. Given that this is a former work supervisor, I’m uncomfortable with how vaguely inappropriate it feels, but I do remain somewhat flattered, which was presumably his motivation when repeatedly asking me to read it..
