64 days in heaven and hell (15)
A unique Van Gogh picture
Recently, a picture has been discovered that seems to show the protagonists of this story gathered around one table in December 1887. 
Émile Bernard and Paul Gauguin are sitting in front of it. Vincent Van Gogh would be the third person from the left, smoking a pipe.  The hat on the table very much looks like the one that he will be wearing on two famous self-portraits with the bandaged ear that he would paint in January 1889.

The group is sitting in the yard of 96, Rue Blanche in Paris, where André Antoine had invited some young artists to show their work in his Théâtre-Libre.

Recently, I started this trend where I’d wear this red and white striped sweater whenever I went to a large gathering of people with a group of friends. I tend to easily get lost, so this was a way for them to find me easier!

Sadly enough, I forgot there was a Halloween party at Disneyland when I hung out with Nerdy….

E. M. FORSTER 1879–1970

English novelist and essayist, member of the Bloomsbury Group, known for his novels A Room with a View, Howards End, and A Passage to India. He was aware of his homosexuality at a young age, and was out to his close friends, although he didn’t enjoy a sexual relationship until later in life. His novels were often informed by his experiences as a gay man, dealing with themes of social inequality, repression, and self-realization. In 1913, he wrote the novel Maurice, a beautiful story of a gay protagonist coming into his own, which was inspired by the real life couple Edward Carpenter and George Merrill. He revised the story several times during his life, but it was never published until after his death.

anonymous asked:

how does one go about questioning/exploring their gender identity?

Read some books about gender/identity, try on clothes that carry gendered connotations and see how it makes you feel, play a video game as a character of a different gender, read a queer webcomic, try wearing makeup (or not wearing makeup), play around with pronouns, ask complicated questions to yourself or the world about gender, ride a gender fabulous unicorn over a rainbow of gender exploration, spend some time reflecting on your body and what works/does not work, think about your identity and how others perceive you and where discomfort sits, talk with a support group in person, talk with a support group online, talk with a therapist, talk with a friend, talk with a partner, write about your identity in a journal or a blog, challenge your own assumptions, think about what characters and individuals you most identify with, draw self-portraits, shave your legs (or stop shaving your legs), cut your hair (or grow your hair), take a gender studies class, try living without gender, etc. etc. etc.

There are tons of ways to question and develop gender and identity.  Always keep exploring.
