The day after I got bashed for being queer, I remember thinking “there is no fucking way I’m going to hide and feel ashamed”… I thought about Nan Goldin’s battered self portrait, and in that moment I knew I was going to make art that celebrates diversity and acceptance. I’m taking this time to thank the people who assaulted me for making my life choices so easy and encouraging me more than you’ll ever imagine. 

Thanks for making me push myself, bitches !

Alejandro Cartagena captured Mexican workers on their way to job sites in Car Poolers. This is such an amazing and simple photo series.

David Wojnarowicz wore this jacket in 1988, just 4 years before he’d ultimately die from AIDS. Sadly, just a few years ago some of his artistic work was censored at the Smithsonian. People in power are still content to try and erase his history and the continued struggles of people with AIDS

At the beginning of The Shining, when Jack calls Wendy to tell her he got the job as winter caretaker of the Overlook, she sits in front of a painting of a woman holding a dog. The painting is titled “Woman and Terrier” (1963) by Canadian artist Alex Colville.

Colville’s paintings are often described as having a subtly unsettling quality, which is perhaps why Kubrick chose to feature them in The Shining.

Colville died in 2013 at the age of 92. After his passing, his son, Graham, remarked:

“I must say, I (felt) slight surprise when I saw Stanley Kubrick’s film The Shining and I suddenly realized my father’s paintings were in the background in numerous scenes. They were implanted in that film as almost subliminal messages.“

Another of Colville’s paintings can be seen in the same Boulder apartment, and yet another can be seen at the Overlook, near the end of the film. A fourth hangs in Room 237.
