… because I cut my hair.
Created by my good and super talented friend Alex Colby, whose photography & other creative work hangs out here. Photo by Annie Liebovitz, of course, and Wheaties box by – well, Wheaties. (Yes, that’s Jenner’s original Wheaties box.)
Today’s the Trans Day of Visibility, which I honestly didn’t know was a thing. I’m glad it is. I’ve long been cranky about #tdor being the only/first way people learn about trans issues, so yay! What I’ve already seen is… Continue Reading
My wife took it, of course.
Apparently homophobes are freaked out by the image of Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend when he got the good news, so Michael Signorile started a campaign to make same sex smooching a lot more visible. So we’re in. We’ve been… Continue Reading
An old friend I went to high school with got married in NYC today, and he posted this awesome photo of him & his groom. It made me smile every time it came across my Facebook feed, so I thought… Continue Reading
There’s a project called “We Are the 15 Percent” that collects portraits of interiracial marriages and families, and I came upon this one and decided they were too cute not to post. The project came about because of the ridiculous,… Continue Reading

… and there’s this one, too, of me and my wife.
I was a giant fan of his in the early 90s when “House of Buggin’” was on TV and I was maybe the only white girl living in Washington Heights. No, really. I didn’t see To Wong Foo when it… Continue Reading
They were Brooklyn kids, can you tell? Sweet and tough all at once. (& Yes, we all still miss the big galoot in the photo, & we miss him a lot.) They were in their early 20s when this… Continue Reading
My friend Alex takes really cool photos, like these two of Eli. Find more here.
I kinda love this one: me and my wife listening intently all fancied up.
