GRAND MASTER OF THE JEDI ORDER

Yoda is a master!

He’s a very old and wise being.

He’s an ally. He’s not afraid because he is accepting and all inclusive of differences.

I had to include him here!

Fear leads to anger.

Anger leads to hate.

Hate leads to suffering.”

‘Holy Mother’ for War Child 1996 …. “Luciano Pavarotti & Eric Clapton …. timeless …. “!!


EricPav

~~May 1, 2017~~ 

TIMELESS PERFORMANCE 

In 1996, a star-studded concert was held in Italy.

The children of Bosnia were the focus of this event.

It tears my heart to think that this is still applicable to so many children of this war-torn world.

Eleven years later, it still applies!

~Luciano Pavarotti & Eric Clapton~

A star-studded Pavarotti & Friends for War Child documents a 1996 summer concert for the children of Bosnia, which was hosted by Luciano Pavarotti and featured a lineup designed to bridge the classical/pop divide.

Eclecticism, rendered with more good nature than real accomplishment, is the key characteristic of this mixed bag of performers gathering together in Modena, Italy, Luciano Pavarotti’s hometown, for a benefit concert for Bosnian children.

Pussy Hat Project …. ‘Mine finally arrived …. the summer version …. “!!


~~April 26, 2017~~ 

THE SUMMER VERSION

I followed the Women’s March on Washington, the day after the inauguration.

Who could miss that ‘sea of pink’?

I wanted to get one of those ‘pussy ears’ hats for a long time.

I finally got one.

It came in the mail yesterday.

I now have my very own version.

Perfect for Florida weather!

What is Pussyhat Project?

The Pussyhat Project launched November 23, 2016 in anticipation and commemoration of the Women’s March on Washington.

Pussyhat Project formed with two aims:

Provide the people of the Women’s March on Washington a means to make a unique collective visual statement (a sea of pink hats) which will help activists be better heard and
Provide people who cannot physically march on the National Mall a way to represent themselves and support women’s rights by creating and gifting pussyhats.

Underlying this project is the idea that in the process of making pussyhats, participants would be connecting with each other and laying the groundwork for future political activism. Pussyhat Project is about creating a platform for people to support women’s rights and each other.

GoldSwirl

Why is “pussy” in the name Pussyhat?

We love the clever wordplay of “pussyhat” and “pussycat,” buy yes, “pussy” is also a derogatory term for female genitalia. We chose this loaded word for our project because we want to reclaim the term as a means of empowerment.

In this day and age, if we have pussies we are assigned the gender of “woman.”

Women, whether transgender or cisgender, are mistreated in this society. In order to get fair treatment, the answer is not to deny our femaleness and femininity, the answer is to demand fair treatment. A woman’s body is her own. We are honoring this truth and standing up for our rights.

Happy 420 …. “Celebrate Sky High …. Weed Day …. all together now …. “!!

~~April 20, 2017~~ 

WEED DAY

The term ‘420’ began its sub-rosa linguistic career in 1971 as a bit of slang casually used by a group of high school kids (known as “Waldos”) at San Rafael High School in California.

The term ‘420’ (always pronounced “four-twenty,” never “four hundred and twenty”) came to be an accepted part of the argot within that group of about a dozen pot smokers, beginning as a reminder of the time they planned to meet to light up, 4:20 p.m.

THE ONLY WAY IS FORWARD

Too much work, effort, blood sweat and tears have been invested in LGBTQ equality.

There’s no going back.

This isn’t the time to rest.

The new Republican Administration, lead by Drumpf, is launching an overt attack on the LGBTQ community.

It’s coming!

We won’t go back in the closet!

We are here to stay!

By all measures, 2015 will be remembered as a banner year for LGBT rights in the United States

The Supreme Court gave gays and lesbians the right to wed.

Popular culture and public opinion continued to increasingly accept transgender identities and same-sex relationships. Corporate advocacy beat back state religious-freedom laws that would have provided a defense for discrimination. And there are more than 450 openly gay elected officials currently serving across the country.

But backers don’t expect the good news to continue, at least in the short term.

ACLU telethon …. “Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey, Tom Hanks headliners …. Fundraiser …. “!!

AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION

I must confess that I’d heard about this organization before.

It wasn’t after the November 2016 election that I became a member.

They support all rights of the people who seem to be oppressed during the current American ‘rule’.

They represent me.

I stand with the ACLU! 

I thank the ACLU!

REST IN PRIDE

~Rainbow Flag Creator Gilbert Baker Dead at 65~

Thank you Gilbert for giving our community one of our greatest gifts.

You are a trailblazer for #LGBTQ youth around the world.

You will be missed!

It Gets Better Project

Gilbert Baker (June 2, 1951 – March 31, 2017) was an openly gay American artist and civil rights activist who designed the rainbow flag in 1978. Baker’s flag became widely associated with LGBT rights causes, a symbol of pride that became ubiquitous in the decades since its debut.

The colors on the Rainbow Flag reflect the diversity of the LGBT community.

When Baker raised the first rainbow flags at San Francisco Pride (his group raised two flags at the Civic Center) on June 25, 1978, it had eight colors, each with a symbolic meaning:

Hot Pink: sexuality
Red: life
Orange: healing
Yellow: sunlight
Green: nature
Turquoise: magic/art
Blue: serenity/harmony
Violet: spirit
