Feature: POKRAS LAMPAS
"Calligraphy on Girls"
Pokras Lampas hails from Saint Petersburg, Russia. A talented artist who specializes in lettering, graffiti and street art. But where he really shines is in the field of calligraphy. Painting on various materials and surfaces, including - in this case - the female body, his work shows a real passion for the artistic medium.
Calligraphy moves from paper to new landscapes in the modern world. Incorporated into as many places as any art can be conceived - from products to the streets and the body.
Truly love the live performance that incorporates fashion and calligraphy. Pretty damn cool folks.

There are so many new words every day/year that dictionaries add some of the most-used, made up and new, words into their dictionary. One word that might already be added, or added soon is ghosting. It’s the act of totally disappearing from someone’s life. Usually when you are just dating or have been talking for a little while. When you just stop answering their calls or responding to their texts, in an attempt to show disinterest.
It might seem like ghosting someone is funny, or easier than explaining what’s really going on. However, in my opinion it’s flat out rude, avoidant, and immature. It shows that you have no backbone or communication skills or empathy. Just to be clear, I’ve been that girl. But after hearing stories and being on the other side I see things more clearly.
In recent times, even if I’m not into someone I’ve decided to let the know. Something not accusatory or mean, just honest:
EVENTS TO SUPPORT
is an incredibly popular NYC-based storytelling event for the entire lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and gender nonconforming community.
Queer Memoir writers/performers/storytellers share one thing in common – a queer identity.
Even as LGBT characters and “out” celebrities become more common in pop culture and mainstream media, the richness and complexity of real queer lives is still undervalued and often invisible. Queer Memoir attempts to provide an avenue to share queer lives and celebrate the ritual and community-building value of storytelling.
