Russian embassy wrapped in rainbow flag to protest Chechnya's anti-gay purge
Around 100 people rallied outside the Russian embassy in London to call for an end to the persecution of the LGBTQ community in Chechnya.
The UNforgotten - Under this leitmotif, the Belgian-American artist Nils Westergard created a new One Wall at Bülowstrasse 94, Berlin-Schöneberg. Together with URBAN NATION director Yasha Young, and with the support of the important project Faces of Auschwitz, they developed a memorial wall for the victims of the Nazi regime who were persecuted, abducted, imprisoned and murdered because of their homosexuality.
The person portrayed shows the Auschwitz prisoner Walter Degen in his concentration camp prisoner uniform, with his prisoner number 20285, and the pink triangle ("Der Rosa Winkel") on his left chest, which was used during the Nazi era to identify homosexual prisoners in the concentration camps. The triangle itself is formed by more than 200 metal origami birds, a work of art by Mademoiselle Maurice, who created this centerpiece of the wall in summer 2017.
The whole impressive and frightening story behind this new One Wall by Nils Westergard can be found here: https://urban-nation.com/2019/01/urban-nation-x-nils-westergard-the-unforgotten-edition-1/

Hello Luminosity Family!!
Apologies for the long time silence , and the lack of any events in 2018 ...
Last year, in 2017, we were met with unprecedented rising costs to produce the event, while still wanting to keep the intimate family vibe everyone has come to love about Luminosity. When all was said and done we lost a significant amount of money producing the event last year, and being a completely grassroots event created by artists, we did not ever have backend investors to support the project. As of today, we are still owing upwards to $10,000 from producing Luminosity 2017 and so we were unable to make the initial investments to produce any events this year.
. We are now asking for your support ! We set up an Indegogo to reach our goals to clear previous debt to artists and crew from previous years. [https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/support-luminosity-gathering--2] 💫Once our debts have been cleared, we look forward to organizing a reunion in 2019 at a beautiful new piece of land back on Vancouver Island! (Pics included)
We have many great rewards on our Indiegogo campaign including Third Eye Tapestries, Luminosity T-Shirts & Tanks, Luminosity Stickers and Discounted tickets to our next event!
We are infinitely grateful for your continued support over the years and we hope keep this vision and community alive, and gather together again in 2019 for a Luminosity reunion!

As an effeminate gay man, Corey Camperchioli was once teased for his feminine traits. Now he wears his femininity as a badge of honor.
This man was jailed for raising the rainbow flag in Egypt, but he says he doesn’t regret a thing.

I’m all about that #LGBTQ 🌈🔮💜🦋🌟✨. I made this painting in celebration of #PrideMonth and the strength, diversity and beauty of our global #QueerCommunity. We are the artists, mystics, misfits, healers, sages, drag queens and so much more. When we come together to celebrate our diversity there is healing and hope for a better world. My friend reminded me this morning that it is about choosing love 💕over fear. Only love can overcome all the hatred in this world, so stay strong and keep your head up. Know that you are beautiful and loved, chase your dreams and never loose hope! Thank you to everyone who has supported me in my journey this far. To all my fellow queers and allies, you make me feel safe to be exactly who I am, and that is a gift that is priceless✨
Spread the love and live fierce and free!👄🌹💗😘✨

A bomb dropped by a queer or trans soldier still kills.
For a long time, mainstream media, in support of lesbian and gay inclusion in the US military, have pushed a narrative of proud LGBT military service. These stories, often profiling LGBT people who are happy to be serving in the military, celebrate US service as a great job and a way to “protect our country.” This pro-military discourse has only ramped up following Trump’s transphobic tweets in fall 2017.
Here’s the truth:
--The US military is the largest source of violence in the world.
--The US military is currently embroiled in horrible, long, unjust wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; is supporting a brutal assault on Yemen; and maintains almost 800 bases in over 70 nations and territories across the world, inflicting environmental destruction, sexual assault, and other forms of violence on the local populations.
--The US military is GROWING exponentially as Trump expands the defense budget.
--The US military is the world’s largest polluter.
--Working for the US military is a terrible job. Sexual violence is endemic in the military. Veterans do not get the services they need from the VA. Recruiters lie about military benefits in order to recruit vulnerable poor people and people of color.
--22 veterans commit suicide every day.
Doesn’t military service enable trans people to get health care who otherwise wouldn’t have access to it?
You shouldn’t have to join the military to get health care. Right now, we can all be fighting for low- and no-cost trans health care in our communities. We can be raising money to help trans people practice self-determination about their bodies and well-being. Together, we can fight a military budget that takes vital resources away from health, education, and housing.
Isn’t military service a way for people of color and poor people to get ahead in the US?
Many people who are made vulnerable by an unjust economy and who live in communities with under-resourced schools are recruited to join the military by the promise of a free college education. No one should have to risk their lives and undergo the horrific trauma of imperialist warfare, in order to go to college. The fact that the US military exploits people who are desperate to get an education is one of the many reasons that we should come together to dismantle US militarism and to fight for wealth redistribution and economic justice.
Aren’t you blaming people who join the military?
We are part of international anti-war, anti-militarism, and anti-imperialism movements, which include veterans of the US military and people targeted by the US military, as well as currently enlisted people who oppose war and militarism. Rather than focusing on judging people’s individual choices, we come together as queer and trans people to uplift our communities’ histories of opposing war and to build shared solutions for real peace, security, and justice.
