Welcome to Hell by Brandon Minieri

hey, my name is tori
i’m 21 years old & bisexual
i was born with a condition called Lymphatic Malformations
it does not stop me from doing anything a “normal” person does
i see myself as funny, compassionate, and interesting
i enjoy photography, writing, and drawing/painting
here to make new friends and see where that takes me :)

my story:
my first kiss was a girl
i’ve always been equally curious about men and women
it wasn’t until 3 or 4 years ago that i started to identify as “bi” because i hate slapping on a label, but i’ve come to terms with it and am now comfortable with telling people
the label has actually helped me come out and made me feel like i had a place in the world after all
when my parents first found out they treated it like it was a phase
but now they are 100% supportive :)


get to know me, i’m different

The ‘Eternal Hope’ of Photography and Fatherhood with Rob Yaskovic

To see more of Rob’s portraits, follow @robyaskovic on Instagram.

As the dad of four children ranging in age from 15 to 5, photographer Rob Yaskovic (@robyaskovic) enjoys untold opportunities for capturing informal family portraits — with “enjoys” being the operative word. “Every day, I’m taking photos,” Rob says. “Every day, I’m thinking about photos, and my children end up in my pictures because I’m around them so often. When you have four kids with crazy schedules, that’s your life. Fortunately for me, it also happens to be pretty exciting.”

At 38 years old, Rob has been a working photographer — five years at a New Jersey newspaper, then freelancing for magazines, shooting weddings and other gigs — for almost half his life. Explaining his passion for the craft of picture-taking, Rob cites another longtime pastime that has given him pleasure through the years: fly fishing. “It’s about the decisive moment. When you’re trout fishing, drifting a dry fly, you hold your breath, waiting for the strike. It’s like that with photography, too. It’s about eternal hope. You’re always hoping something amazing is going to happen on the river, or in front of your camera. And sometimes, if you’re lucky, it does.”

This is a video of two of my good friends that are probably the best couple I have ever encountered - Natalie (blonde) moved to South Korea for a year to pursue her passion/job and Alex (dark hair) lives in NJ. Alex wanted to celebrate every holiday they’d be missing before Natalie moves away, and this is the end result (just a little faster) 😜🌹(Natalie had no idea this would be happening - Alex: genius.)

Found this video @catherinedlish made of me learning to spin my #rhinestonecowgirl guns. I think we were in Antwerp, one of the first places we debuted this #burlesque act when I was @maccosmetics #vivaglam spokesperson. I’m standing on the bed because I’d drop the guns on the floor and break them. At one point I also had a trick roper giving me lessons because I thought it would be fun to spin a lasso too. I imagined jumping in and out if it topless, but alas, it’s hard enough as it is to boot-scoot in @swarovski crystallized @louboutinworld boots with big janglin’ star spurs. This act in its new incarnation is part of The Art of the Teese, and the show with its all-star cast is headed to #SanAntonio #Miami #Atlanta #Charlotte #Toronto #Montreal #NewJersey #Philadelphia in just two weeks.
