Air

Daniel Forero's series 'Air' has a lot of uncomfortable moments where you are just waiiiiiiting for that balloon to pop.


Fan Ho's 1950's Hong Kong

Fan Ho's street photography of Hong Kong in the 1950's is so evocative, I could look at it for a while.

Self-Care

"Self-care is also not arguing with those who are committed to misunderstanding you."
-Ayishat A. Akanbi

Oh yes. I am going to take this one to heart.

Relaxing Animation

Looking at Alex Moy's simple animations made me feel more relaxed.


Imagining a Feminist Future

Vice had some feminist thought leaders get together and discuss what they would see as a future feminist utopia, their hopes and dreams for the next generation, and other things about the future of feminism. It's largely a hopeful, beautiful read.

bell hooks' feminist utopia: " It’s really very simple. Our stewardship would be both to the earth and to gender. It wouldn’t be to some high tech anything—it would be to the complete embodiment of simple living."

Jacob Tobia on hopes for the next generation's gender experience: "I don’t want a gender-less world. I want a gender-full world. I want a world where gender identity matters to people, but it matters as a form of creative expression and not some determination of your self-worth or ability to survive."
