From the march today (8/23/14) at the Capitol in Atlanta.

I’m not a Christian but still found this prayer very inspiring.

Hortelanos celebrando a Santa Maria Magdalena, Uruapan, Michoacan, Mexico

During the yearly celebration of Mary Magdalena, in Uruapan(Michoacan, Mexico), a large procession is held, leaving from the neighborhood of “La Magdalena” up to the center of town. The most visually striking group, leading the parade is the one of the ”Hortelanos”/”Gardeners”, large group of young men wearing costumes made of gourd masks, animal skins, burlap, vegetables and all sorts of nature’s ephemeral goods. The sacred theme is combined with the profane one, as elements of ostensibly religious nature are melted with, sometimes imperceptibly, sometimes in a  puzzling way (The priest and the altar boy!), with the secular.The term “Hortelanos”is said in the barrio to refer to the divine gardeners who advised Mary Magdalena that Christ had risen from the tomb.  Apart of the ritual expression of their shared belief, the goal of the Hortelanos is to celebrate and transcend the ordinary of reality, creating a large “happening” in interacting  and improvising mischievously with the crowd gathered along the route of the parade. 

Durante la celebración anual de Santa María Magdalena, en Uruapan,(Michoacan, Mexico) se celebró una gran procesión saliendo desde el barrio de “La Magdalena” hasta el centro de la ciudad. El grupo el más atractivo visualmente, lo que lleva el desfile es el de los ”Hortelanos” / “Jardineros”, gran grupo de hombres jóvenes vestidos con trajes hechos de calabazas, pieles de animales, arpillera, verduras y todos tipos de productos efímeros de la naturaleza. El tema sagrado se combina con el profano, como elementos de la naturaleza aparentemente religiosa se ​​funden, a veces de manera imperceptible, a veces bastante chocante (el sacerdote y el monaguillo!!!), con el secular. La palabra  ”Hortelanos” se dice en el bario para referirse a los jardineros divinos que aconsejaron María Magdalena que Cristo había resucitado de la tumba. 

  Aparte de la expresión ritual de su creencia compartida, el objetivo de los Hortelanos es celebrar y trascender lo ordinario de la realidad, creando una gran “happening” en la interacción y improvisación alegre con la multitud reunida al  largo de la ruta del desfile.

I’m not a jealous person by nature, but I almost hate people who can make amazing pancake art. I could never.

Argentina: doing it right. After passing a groundbreaking gender identity law on Wednesday, Argentina, which became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage, now leads the entire world when it comes to trans rights.
The new law, which was passed by 55-0 and is expected to be signed by president Cristina Fernandez, grants trans people the right to legally change their gender identity without having to get approval from doctors or judges–and, importantly, without having to change their bodies at all first. Not having a valid ID that matches your gender identity is a huge barrier to access to education, employment, health care, you name it. As Kalym Sori, an Argentinian trans man said, “This is why the law of identity is so important. It opens the door to the rest of our rights.”
