I’ve worked on all the big oil rigs down in Mexico. But I’m always on the safety side, preventing disaster. I figure if we need planes and drive cars we’re going to need the fuel from somewhere. But people start getting greedy and demanding more. It’s about balance. I’m a vegan. I drive a car smaller than my means can afford.  My mother passed away this December. Close before that she had a stroke. When I went to see her after that, she said: “Holy men have gone. Kings have gone. Who am I?” We’re only here for a short time. While we’re here we shouldn’t try to be the center of everything. #vegan #climatechange #deep #beautiful #story #storytime #marine #marinebiology #marineengineer #oil #oilrig #engineering #engineer #impact #activism #globalwarming #gogreen #planetearth #reducereuserecyle #nature #portraitphotography #savetheplanet #marine #portraitphotographer
🚫OUTWIT YOUR ENEMIES‼️I created this 4 foot mixed media piece as a part of a three-part collage series for @intoactionus in LA. It's important for me to create political art work that showcase strong, resilient brown women having fun tagging the streets crossing out racist symbols since that's pretty much who I am ❤️ I started organizing  when I was 16 & used to try and school my classmates on the "systems of oppression" only to get side-eyed lol back when it wasn't "cool" to be down or radical. Dedicated to all the real activists putting in work since Day 1. You know who you are ✊🏽 #intoaction #artivists #art #arts #activism #artists #artistsoninstagram #artistsofinstagram #streetart #modernart #contemporaryart #graffiti #resist #sociajustice #civilrights #equality #artbasel #dtla #losangeles #nishaksethi #trustyourstruggle #janetjackson #control
Forced to wear rubber shoes today (friends know how much I hate wearing shoes) becuase I’ll be protesting against the gagging of @rappler and #pressfreedom.  I really don’t want to get caught in this administration’s shooting spree, but it won’t stop me from protesting. So if I need to run, wearing these shoes will help. Wish us luck!  #parasabayan #changescamming #neveragain #supportrappler #pinapataynilatayo #cultureoffear #rubbershoes #activist #activism

Childhood in Oaxaca #ffhmorg
#tbt During the 1960s the orphanage was lit by these kerosene lamps There was no phone communication or electrical power south of Santo Tomás. An old generator was donated, so when we had enough money to buy the gas, we ran it from 6 to 8 pm. Everything from pumping water to cutting hair was done during that time. #ffhmorg
#repost @nyclgbtsites with @get_repost ・・・ (1 of 4) Literary icon and civil rights activist James Baldwin owned an Upper West Side rowhouse from 1965 until his death in 1987, using it as his residence when in New York City.⠀ .⠀ Although he did not like to be labeled in terms of sexuality, politics, religion, and so on, Baldwin wrote several novels that featured gay and bisexual characters and spoke openly about same-sex relationships.

I find it funny how the second a woman’s period is mentioned that it is turned away and women are told how disgusting it is. But for sex it is beautiful. I believe that it is wrong #feminism #womensrights #activism #equalityforall
#repost @nyclgbtsites with @get_repost ・・・ Happy birthday, Mark Segal!⠀ .⠀ After the Stonewall rebellion in June 1969, the first LGBT activist organization formed, in July, was the Gay Liberation Front (GLF). GLF used Alternate U., a free counterculture school and leftist political organizing center in Greenwich Village, for many of its activities.⠀ .⠀ In 1970, Mark Segal established Gay Youth for members under 20; the subgroup hosted dances at Alternate U (learn more about this site via link in bio).⠀ .⠀ An activist and journalist, Segal popularized disruptive nonviolent actions known as "zaps." According to the Washington Post: "In 1973, [Segal's] targets included 'The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson' and 'The Mike Douglas Show.' He and a friend staged their last and most notorious zap when they posed as college students and obtained passes for the 'CBS Evening News With Walter Cronkite.' Midway through the broadcast on Dec. 11, 1973, as Cronkite began a story about Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Segal darted in front of the camera with a sign reading 'Gays Protest CBS Prejudice.'"⠀ .⠀ Segal is the founder and publisher of the Philadelphia Gay News @phillygaynews.⠀ .⠀ #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbthistory #gay #gayhistory #gayliberation #lgbtrights #activism #activist #journalism #journalist ⠀
#repost @nyclgbtsites with @get_repost ・・・ (2 of 5) Openly gay, Bayard Rustin was one of the most important yet little-known figures of the civil rights movement. He served as the lead organizer of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. ⠀ .⠀ Despite working tirelessly for the civil rights cause, Rustin was often forced to give up leadership roles and recognition because of prejudice towards his homosexuality.

#repost @nyclgbtsites with @get_repost ・・・ (3 of 4) James Baldwin attended the August 28, 1963, March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Here he is pictured with actors Charlton Heston (left) and Marlon Brando (right) and singer Harry Belafonte (far right).⠀ .⠀ Baldwin’s unease with racism in this country led him to live most of his adult life as a self-described “transatlantic commuter.” While he lived primarily in France, he often featured New York, including his native Harlem, in his written work and resided in a number of apartments here.

@Regranned from @theactivistboys -  Disclaimer that gay people wearing pride shirts isn’t a form of shoving sexuality down another person’s throat. -🌹 #poc #woc #moc #sexismsucks #feminism #feminist #intersectionalfeminism #intersectional #racismsucks #blacklivesmatter #lgbt #civilrights #diversity #lovewins #humanrights #activist #activism #loveislove #equality #support #positivity #bodypositivity #pride #love - #regrann

@Regranned from @allwomenshouldrunforoffice -  THIS!!!!!!!! I hate to project or assume things about other people's lives/experiences, but..... my women friends who are defending aziz and saying it was just a bad date and why didn't she just leave and why was she naked and etc etc etc... I just think they're saying that to not have to deal with how fucking relatable and commonplace this whole story is. It's happened to all of us and maybe some people more than others and that's why they can't wrap their minds around how wrong it is. Maybe they don't know what a kind and caring sex partner is. Maybe they only know the prodding, insistent can't take no for an answer frat boy types who want to use women's bodies like objects and then throw them away. They might be thinking, "If that's assault, then what is normal sex?" I kind of want to start a sex therapy class and just help people relearn and unlearn what they already know and basically just change everything I read in grace's account because it upset me so much. I never want that to happen to anyone else ever again. #timesup #allwomenshouldrunforoffice - #regrann  #all__women#feminist#feminism#intersectional#intersectionality#intersectionalfeminism#genderequality#womenempoweringwomen#activism#activist#equality#blm#transisbeautiful#poc#timesup#believewomen#metoo#womensrightsarehumanrights#humanrights#woc#feminista#feminismo
