According to People magazineOklahoma teens Katie Hill and Arin Andrews, who are transgender and were in a relationship with each other during their transitions, will share their stories in two memoirs to be published Sept. 30, 2014, by Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers. The book covers, revealed today, are above.

Katie Hill told People"I don’t want this book to just appeal to transgender people or their allies. I want people to understand that there really is no such thing as normal."

I don’t know a lot about this couple but woohoo more YA books by trans people!

boom! both of these went on my goodreads list immediately

for ten years now, leonid tishkov has traveled the world with his moon. here we see him in arctic svalbard magdalene fjord (1,5,7), new zealand, near rangitito (second photo, taken by marcus williams), the tian shang observatory near the border between china and kyrgyzstan (third photo, by po-i chen) and moscow (4,6,8, taken by boris bendikov)

"the moon is a shining point that brings people together from different countries, of different nationalities and cultures - and everyone who gets in its orbit does not forget it ever. it gives fairytale and poetry in our prosy and mercantile world," leonid writes. "the moon helps us to overcome our loneliness in the universe by uniting us around it."

leonid adds, “the ancient ural peoples who lived in my home told a fairy tale about how a shaman goes into the next world, illuminating the path of the moon. so in all of my photos, i can be seen in my late father’s cloak, because he travels with me in this way.”

A man should never neglect his family for business.

Walt Disney (via oftheseagreen)

I always loved this quote and I don’t think people realize what Walt juggled. Looking into Hollywood today, couples can hardly last a year. Or all of a sudden out of the blue, they divorce after decades. There’s cheating and stealing and “irreconcilable differences” and the like and people don’t take time to fix it, they just give up.

Walt was one of the biggest celebrities of his time. Everyone knew him, wanted to be him, wanted to be a part of what he was making. He could have easily been caught up in the same scandals that plaques Hollywood today.

Walt married is sweetheart when they were young, had a daughter and adopted another. And when he died, the same people were by his side. He never neglected his parents, he never neglected his brother, he never neglected his nephew. All that Walt did he not only did for us, but his family. Disneyland was built for his daughters.

He kept such a head on his shoulders. He stayed focused and on track. You shouldn’t just admire him from a personality perspective, he was also one hell of a business man and family man.
