-life- /līf/ a principle or force that is considered to underlie the distinctive quality of animate beings. We wont die secret deaths anymore. The world only spins forward. We will be citizens. The time has come. .....You are fabulous creatures, each and every one. And I bless you: More Life. The Great Work Begins. ."-Tony Kushner, Angels in America. - #bobforpride 📸:@jacob.ritts - 👗: @theladyhyde. - 💅🏿:@boi_nails. - 💇🏿♀️: @gypsywigz-

heal·ing. /ˈhēliNG/ the process of making or becoming sound or healthy again. On the night of the Stonewall Riots, where no one was killed, the queer community felt broken. The healing process is a slow one and we still have progress to makes. We won't be fully healed until every member of the LGTBQ+ community is fully protected under the law and feels comfortable in this world. #bobforpride 📸:@jacob.ritts 👗:@lashauwnbeyond. - 💇🏿♀️:@shelbylate_hmu 💎:@fiercejewels_official
sun·light /ˈsənˌlīt/ light from the sun. Out of the darkness and into the light. We march down the avenues of the world's biggest cities in broad daylight unafraid and proud. (Purse First) 👗: @diegomontoya3d 📸:@jacob.ritts 💅🏿: @boi_nails #bobforpride
While I was doing Angels In America at Berkeley Rep, I met a stitcher named Anna Slotterback. She really gives me a tickle. In so many ways we are polar opposites, but we have so much in common. Suit by:@annaslotterback Photos by:@jacob.ritts Anna's Makeup by:@stormalex #bobforpride

na·ture /ˈnāCHər/ the phenomena of the physical world collectively, including plants, animals, the landscape, and other features and products of the earth, as opposed to humans or human creations. #bobforpride 🧥: @annaslotterback 📸: @jacob.ritts
har·mo·ny /ˈhärmənē/ The quality of forming a pleasing and consistent whole. When I think of the queer community I think of wholeness. Even in today's trying political climate I can find unity and togetherness with many of my queer family. #bobforpride 🎩+👗: @fashionbyreyortiz 📸:@jacob.ritts
I met @pinwheelpinwheel in the basement at The Monster. They rushed up to me and said "I'd love to make a dress for you". Here we are a year later. #bobforpride 👗:@pinwheelpinwheel 📸:@jacob.ritts
Spir·it- /ˈspirit/ the nonphysical part of a person which is the seat of emotions and character; the soul. The sprit of the queer community is amongst the strongest there is. We have withstood the test of time by standing on the shoulders of strong queer activists. We don’t all share a blood bond, we share something stronger, a commonality. 👗: @pinwheelpinwheel 📸:@jacob.ritts #bobforpride

The quality of the photo is terrible, but I'd be out of line on #transdayofvisibility if I didn't mention one of my oldest drag friends, @azraea, they single handedly taught me more about trans matters than anyone. They taught me that there is life outside of a binary spectrum. They taught me that actions have power and they taught me why my eyebrows weren't working. 🤣🤣 They are one of the smartest people I've ever meet and we meet when they were 21. Thanks for showing me that trans means more than switching gender expression. 📸:@welovequeens #transdayofvisibility
When I was 18 I saw @themilajam in Seussical The Musical. I was blown away by her talent, wit, and charm. She was the first person I knew from my hometown, Columbus, GA, that moved to NYC and made it. When I moved to NYC 4 years later I saw an ad in a magazine with her face. This blew my mind. Someone I knew, from my hometown, had a whole page in a magazine. I've followed her career from The Springer Opera House, to the national tour of Rent, to the NYC nightlife scene, international television, YouTube sensation, and now musical artist. She has remained one of the most talented people I know for sul these years. #transdayofvisibility 📸: @jwilson77
I was 18.
Throwback back circa 2014 When I was a kid I always asked my mom for a little sister. I had to wait till was adult, but I finally got one. Best of luck tonight @monetxchange.
Happy Valentine's Day to my beautiful partner. I found someone that's strange enough to think I'm not too weird, but not so strange that my mom dislikes him. Who knew? I love you very much @jacob.ritts. To quote you "Thanks J Date!"
Love this pic of me and @daniel.dehnert
In 2004 I was a senior in high school. While watching the Tony Awards I saw LL Cool J presenting an award with one of the most magnetic people I had ever laid eyes on. I asked my mother, "Who is that woman?" And she told me that her name was Carol Channing. This began my long obsession with Carol and her work. I've always felt a strange connection to her and I am insanely proud that she in a part of my professional storyline. Her work as a comedic actor, consummate professional, and her all around good nature has been a guiding light in my life for a very long time. I got this Al Hirschfeld rendering of Carol tattooed by @red_inkz 2 years ago and I look at it whenever I need a smile. Thanks you Carol for all the smiles you've given me.
On the left I was 23 and on the right I'm 32. I guess I lost my hair, gained some weight, and stopped smiling. Haha #howdidagehityouchallenge
Is she nice or is she a bitch? The answer is. . . yes. The return of @kickassdragqueen
Happy birthday Dad!!!
