It’s Pride, and to celebrate, the Portland Police Bureau posted an ‘It Gets Better’ video yesterday. Over the 10 minute run time, it becomes quickly apparent that we must have the queerest (and cutest) police force in the nation. (I wonder how we’d go about fact checking that claim). Go out and support them at the Pride Parade on Sunday.
Also, if you haven’t seen it yet, check out our photo feature of Lorenzo Triburgo’s beautifully composed Trans Portraits. By photographing transgender men in classically masculine portraiture poses in front of hand-painted backdrops of Bob Ross-style ‘happy trees,’ he playfully thwarts ideas of gender and nature/authenticity.
