Free & Equal is a United Nations campaign for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender equality.

Wow that’s deep, holy shit

I want to live so densely, lush and slow in the next few years, that a year becomes ten years, and my past becomes only a page in the book of my life.

Journalist 1: I Yo’d you four times yesterday, wasn’t sure if you saw.

Journalist 2: I saw. 

Journalist 1: You didn’t react, so I wasn’t sure. 

Over the past year, eight small towns across Mississippi have passed resolutions meant to create a welcoming atmosphere for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. Most of them passed unanimously.

Though they pack one of the deadliest stings in the ocean, if you can get close enough, you’ll find that the Portuguese Man-of-War jellyfish is also one of the most beautiful creatures alive.

For the past two years, retired U.S. Navy photographer Aaron Ansarov has been capturing stunning photos of man-of-wars along a local Florida beach.
