Look Like Yourself: Rien

posted by Look Like Yourself Project on Dec 12 at 10:30am

I've always been a tomboy. From elementary school on, any time I picked my own clothes they were always oversized and typically from the boys department. At some point during college I realized my attraction to women and identified as a lesbian until recently. The label never quite felt right, but I couldn't put my finger on why that was.

This helped ease the dysphoria a bit, but only temporarily.

Look Like Yourself: Ollie

posted by Look Like Yourself Project on Dec 5 at 10:30am

I think it was 5 or so, and knowing I wasn't a 'girl' in the way that the other girls in kindergarten were. I didn't know what the alternative was though, so I just went along with it.

Phantom, Paul Taylor, and Janis: The Arts provide reasons to give thanks

posted by Ralph Malachowski on Nov 30 at 10:30am

There is no better time to give thanks for all that technicians, stagehands, producers, actors, dancers, singers and musicians do for us. The Arts, at their best, provide us with the means to feel and know in a totally different way, and to realize that we are neither powerless nor dumb, and that we have the potential to be great. Find love and joy in the Arts since the Arts bring out the finest qualities within each of us. This holiday season share your joy with your loved ones by taking them to a show, concert, or performance, or by buying them tickets of their own.
