LGBTQ* Appreciation Post

Photographs from the (fantastic!) book, Becoming Visible, by Molly McGarry and Fred Wasserman. 

(McGarry, Molly and Fred Wasserman. Becoming Visible: An Illustrated History of Lesbian and Gay Life in Twentieth-century America. New York: Penguin Studio, 1998.) 

We, the KNOWhomo team, do not assume the gender identity or sexual orientation of any of the individuals in any of the above photographs.

"My mother said I must always be intolerant of ignorance but understanding of illiteracy. That some people, unable to go to school, were more educated and more intelligent than college professors."

So, You’re A Trans Woman Looking For A Bra

For trans women, buying bras is often a new experience, even if we’re adults. If you transition later in life, you probably won’t have much experience picking out bras and the sizing might be confusing. Since most of us didn’t have the typical girl childhood, we’re kind of jumping in feet first and blind. When you add in other factors that are unique to trans women, picking out the right bra can be an arduous task.

Stunning Photographs Of Couples In Love by Braden Summers

Beautiful portraits by photographer Braden Summers for his “All Love Is Equal” series that was funded through Kickstarter.

"My hope is that not only are my images inspiring romance for the queer community, but inspiring the acceptance of our romance on a global scale."

The Kickstarter raised enough money so that Braden can photograph LGBT couples in France, IndianLebanonSouth AfricaBrazil, New York, and California.
