The NYFA released this inforaphic of gender inequality in film. It’s truly eye-opening and this only scratches the surface.
Can’t say I’m surprised.
Just bought “Wood Architecture Now! Vol. 2”.
Merry (early) Christmas to me!
Designed by Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller®
Charles and Ray Eames had ideas about making a better world, one in which things were designed to bring greater pleasure to our lives. Their iconic Eames Lounge Chair (1956) began with a desire to create a chair with “the warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt.” In continuous production since its introduction in 1956, the Eames Lounge Chair is widely considered one of the most significant designs of the 20th century. Pairing soft, inviting leather with the sleek form of molded wood, this set was the culmination of the Eameses’ efforts to create a club chair using the molded plywood technology that they pioneered in the ’40s. Entirely hand-assembled out of parts that are fully replaceable by Herman Miller, the timeless Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman is constructed to last lifetimes. This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of Herman Miller, Inc. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.
My Dream chair. I most definitely entered the Dwell 2013 Holiday Giveaway in hopes of winning one. Hear that universe? I need this chair in my life!
I’m not sure why I took a break from Tumblr, but I’ve found that it wasn’t on purpose. In any case, I think i’m back.
Also, I like that the last thing I reblogged was a picture of Quvenzhané Wallis. Clearly, I’m a winner.
LGBTQ* Children’s Books You May Have Missed:
One Dad, Two Dads, Brown Dad, Blue Dads by Johnny Valentine, illustrated by Melody Sarecky
So this happened: Rebecca went to the children’s section of the library when working on our theses became a bit too much to bear, and this is what she found. Looks like the universe knew we needed something to cheer us up!
Published in 1994 from Alyson Wonderland (an imprint of Alyson Books), One Dad, Two Dads, Brown Dad, Blue Dads is a spectacular example of children’s authors who are doing it right. The book is inclusive of many kinds of diverse family structures and addresses the difficult-to-articulate complications of navigating awkward questions from strangers as a child in a family that might not fit into the cookie-cutter family structure depicted in many mainstream children’s books.
I hope you find time soon to grab a copy and snuggle up with someone you adore to celebrate the love we find in each other from all corners of the queer community.
