Once engaged, and later married, Jack starts unconsciously using his wedding ring as a comfort item. If he’s anxious or stressed he no longer clenches his fists, instead he folds his thumb to run over the smooth band on his ring finger while he takes deep breaths.

Allegory, mythology and genre paintings 1

Rossetti was an English poet, illustrator, painter and translator. He founded the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1848 with William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais. Rossetti was later to be the main inspiration for a second generation of artists and writers influenced by the movement, most notably William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones. His work also influenced the European Symbolists and was a major precursor of the Aesthetic movement.


Black Panther Party posters, by Emory Douglas.

Emory Douglas joined the BPP in 1967 and served as Minister of Culture, designing artwork that became potent symbols of the movement. Douglas originally helped with the layout of the Black Panthers’ newspaper, and realised that art could enhance their campaigns and reach the masses.

Whenever straight radfems tells me we shouldn’t focus on fighting against the problematic sides of transactivism because there are bigger fights to take on, I feel like they’re not taking the threats against us lesbians seriously.

Our spaces and our bodily autonomy are invaded, our culture is being erased, butches are disappearing at the speed of light and we’re told we should reconsider our discriminatory preferences for vulva.

Straight radfems need to listen to us and take these threats seriously, especially if they’re gonna portray as the ultimate symbol of their movement.
I’m tired of being told not to make it my main fight to protect my lesbian sisters from males invading our spaces. Show some solidarity.

Arthur Rimbaud

Jean Nicolas Arthur Rimbaud (20 October 1854 – 10 November 1891) was a French poet born in Charleville, Ardennes. He influenced modern literature and arts, inspired various musicians, and prefigured surrealism. He started writing poems at a very young age, while still in primary school, and stopped completely before he turned 21. He was mostly creative in his teens (17–20). His “genius, its flowering, explosion and sudden extinction, still astonishes”. Rimbaud was known to have been a libertine and for being a restless soul. He traveled extensively on three continents before his death from cancer just after his thirty-seventh birthday. Read More || Edit 

“By being too sensitive I have wasted my life.”Arthur Rimbaud


In the summer of 1964, the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party, or “Freedom Democrats” for short, was organized with the purpose of challenging Mississippi’s all-white and anti-civil rights delegation to the Democratic National Convention, which failed to represent all Mississippians.

The Freedom Democrats’ efforts drew national attention to the plight of African Americans in Mississippi, and represented a challenge to President Lyndon B. Johnson, who was seeking the Democratic Party’s nomination for reelection.

[For] the testimony before the Convention’s Credential Committee, the FDP had a lineup of different people: they had Rita Schwerner, wife of slain civil right’s worker Michael Schwerner, and they had Martin Luther King Jr., who every knew. But the highlight of the testimony was that of Fannie Lou Hamer, who was a sharecropper that was evicted from her plantation for trying to register to vote. She came to symbolize the Mississippi movement.

The testimonies were being broadcast live across America on major television networks (NBC, CBS, and ABC). President Lyndon B. Johnson, who was watching the testimonies, wasn’t scared of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s testimony; he was scared of Fannie Lou Hamer’s and didn’t want America to hear it. So Johnson holds an impromptu press conference, knowing the press would break away from Hamer’s testimony and cover what they thought was Johnson announcing who his choice for Vice President was going to be. Instead, Johnson announced the nine month anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination and the assassination attempt of Texas governor John Connally, leaving the press puzzled. By the time Johnson’s “conference” ended, Hamer was done delivering her testimony.

However, Johnson’s plan backfired when the press found out that his conference was held in order to take Hamer’s testimony off the air, which became a big story. This led the major news networks to air Hamer’s testimony on their late news programs and for the next few days, gaining national attention and support for the FDP’s movement.

Capitol Look: Craig Green

One look at Craig Green’s A/W 15 collection and you feel the intensity. It’s bold, striking, unapologetic. That’s what stood out most to our Capitol Couture editors, who are naming Craig Green “One to Watch” this year. Green is transforming the way we think about menswear, creating statement pieces that reinvent movement and form.

In collaboration with Nick Knight, the two set out to turn fashion into pure anguish. The result is a breathtaking spectacle that breathes life into Green’s collection: architectural details become limbs, models become warriors vying for territory. Through fashion, they have declared war.

Green’s collection is all about power. Something we could all use at this present moment. Remember: fashion is more than pretty things, it has the ability to instill us with strength and confidence. Something as small as a gold Mockingjay pin can become a symbol for an entire movement. The next time you suit up, think of what empowers you, so you too may venture forth in a blaze of glory.

I’m immensely proud of the Heartagram. People having tattoos of it… it’s amazing. It’s not a symbol - it’s a movement. I love religious symbolism… The heartagram is like a modern popular culture version of yin and yang, because it’s got that heart and it’s got that pentagram. Both good and evil. It just looks good…
