In honor of Spirit Day, Kristin & Dannielle of Everyone Is Gay (dot com) joined me for a rousing campfire rendition of “Firework,” the most empowering song I know that is also about festive explosives! 

Fun fact: all the purple clothing in this video belongs to me.  O____O

Happy Spirit Day!!

Today is Spirit Day, which is not only a great opportunity to spread awareness around LGBTQ bullying, but to also reflect on how we treat each other within the LGBTQ community.

Here are our thoughts, and a collaboration with Jenny Owen Youngs to really get you in the spirit. <3

Today is #NationalFossilDay!
The evolution of sharks can be traced back over 400 million years, and the most famous extinct shark is Carcharodon megalodon, whose jaws hang in the Museum’s Hall of Vertebrate Origins. This animal, which lived in the seas 10 million years ago, easily dwarfed modern great white sharks.

I bet you can tell I’m a woman,” she said, “and I suspect the rest of the world can, too.”

She said she was all too aware that if she was selected, she would represent several hundred male athletes in the NBA; she would deal with league officials and agents who were nearly all men; she would negotiate with team owners who were almost all men; and she would stand before reporters who were predominantly men.

She did not flinch. “My past,” she told the room, “is littered with the bones of men who were foolish enough to think I was someone they could sleep on.
