What It Means To Identify As Non-Binary
"I’m very adamant about making sure people understand that I am somewhere on the spectrum, but I’m not a man and I’m not a woman.”

As the queer community demands room for more nuanced identities beyond the binaries of gay and straight, man and woman, we at The Huffington Post want to let those living such experiences speak for themselves. So we spoke with Jaz Joyner, a person who identifies as non-binary. Joyner, a programming manager at AOL who uses the they/them pronouns, spoke with HuffPost’s Noah Michelson on our most recent episode of “The Spectrum,” a bi-weekly series where we explore diverse identities within the LGBTQ community. 

Joyner explained that being non-binary means not identifying as either male or female. They said they often refer to themselves as “pretty boy,” “femme boy,” “non-binary guy” or “trans person.”


In Leonard Nimoy’s honor, and in conjunction with the many 50th anniversary celebrations of Star Trek, we have decided to display 50 previously printed and signed, but never before exhibited photographs.
We welcome you to join us for Leonard Nimoy: Unseen September 5th through October 25th, 2016. 

“Two and a half years prior to his passing, in the summer of 2012, Leonard Nimoy decided to organize his photographic oeuvre. He scanned and emailed me 384 contact sheets containing 20-35 images each, for a total of almost 10,000 shutter snaps.” -From the Exhibition introduction by Richard Michelson- Read the full introduction here.   

Opening reception September 9th from 6 to 8. We will be screening some clips of Leonard Nimoy speaking about his photography; and gallery owner Richard Michelson will be available to sign copies of his newest picture book Fascinating: The Life of Leonard Nimoy.

I find this wedding talk rude! Amanda, how dare you! Since you started it... A moment that would kill me would be their first dance. They'd dance to "Can't help falling in love" but instrumental, since they would whisper the lyrics to each other.

That was my first dance!!! It’s an excellent choice.

My gut instinct was to say it’d be a song they cowrote, but that would just be two people trying to outdo each other lyrically on how much they love each other, lol, so I wonder if it wouldn’t be a Sheeran special?

If they did go with “Can’t Help Falling in Love” I would hope they would ask Ingrid Michelson to perform it. Her version is c'est magnifique! 💚💙
