Happy Birthday Laverne!

This week, Laverne Cox (an actress in Orange is the New Black, a trans activist, and all around badass) is gracing the cover of TIME magazine anddd today is her birthday so that’s pretty sweet. Tagging this under Feminist Friday even though it isn’t Friday because Laverne is a role model for all women.

But this was ripped from the radio, so I am sorry for the talking.

FYI, East Village Radio is Mark Ronson’s radio show. He liked the song so much that he premiered it on his show, which is pretty cool. Ronson co-wrote and produced the original.

Happy Mother’s Day

Cover artist Chris Ware on this week’s Mother’s Day cover: “Because really, what is there to be afraid of? Few people today don’t know—or have in their families—at least one loving couple who are raising children, same-sex or not. And it’s really just the loving part that matters.”
