The drag queen from this photo has spoken up about the photo.
I won’t speak for all liberals, but I’d like to see a future where it isn’t a big deal for a woman in full modesty garb to sit next to a drag queen in NYC. It’s become a bit of a sensation, but her and I were just existing. The freedom to simply be yourself in a sea of people who aren’t like you is a freedom we all deserve.
The central irony is that this isn’t some hypothetical future–it’s just present day reality. This is a picture of two ordinary people going about their normal lives despite how haters want to politicize it lmao. So the underlying message is not “future liberals want” it’s “people conservatives want to eradicate”

shainblumphotography Moments right before totality. This morning was absolutely amazing. The total eclipse was by far one of the most incredible things I have ever witnessed. Huge thanks to @thistommysmith @tedhesser @martinatib and @andrew.studer. This is one single photo.
Because most of us spend the majority of our time indoors, NASA conducted a Clean Air Study to determine which common houseplants are the best for filtering harmful toxins like ammonia
and formaldehyde from the air.
**Please note: Several of these plants are known to be toxic to cats, dogs and other pets. If you are a pet owner, please do check the toxicity of plants before introducing them to your home.**

Federal action on gun laws is unlikely. President Obama has again called for state and local governments to tighten them.
Here’s Where Gun Laws Stand In Your State
“The absolute best thing in the world that can happen to me is telling a parent that their child’s tumor is benign. I live for those moments. And the worst thing that can happen to me is telling a parent that I’ve lost their kid. It’s only happened to me five times in thirty years. And I’ve wanted to kill myself every single time. Those parents trusted me with their child. It’s a sacred trust and the ultimate responsibility is always mine. I lose sleep for days. I second-guess every decision I made. And every time I lose a child, I tell the parents: ‘I’d rather be dead than her.’ And I mean it. But I go to church every single day. And I think that I’m going to see those kids in a better place. And I’m going to tell them that I’m sorry. And hopefully they’ll say, ‘Forget it. Come on in.’”
As we learn these stories, we are trying to raise $1,000,000 to help the team at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in their fight against pediatric cancer. Thanks to the 15,000 people who have contributed so far. We’re almost 60% of the way there. Please consider donating:http://bit.ly/1TpFcdy

Here’s an excerpt of his 2002 Fresh Air interview:
On why he never wore T-shirts and jeans onstage
“I never believed it. It always felt like you were trying too hard to look like the audience or something. That whole thing about the artistic integrity, which of course I’ve never bought into, with any artist, it’s just not a real thing. … I didn’t say that wearing a glamorization of the rock artist was any truer. … It’s all artifice. I think my main point is that the T-shirt and denims thing, in my mind, was also an artifice. I didn’t feel comfortable in that, because I didn’t feel like one of the working men. I mean, I could never be a blue collar-y kind of Springsteen-y type artist because I don’t believe I am that, and I don’t believe I could ever represent that, and it is merely representation.”
