#TBT to our Portland trip a couple of weeks ago where we ate at a restaurant that described itself as "aggressively seasonal." I will now only eat aggressive produce.

Just tried this delicious pineapple ginger lemonade! My dear friend @blbachmann created the adorable artwork for the bottle! It's just as cute as it is tasty! You can buy it at the Canyon Country Store in Laurel Canyon. 🍍🍋

In honor of pride, I decided to share this painting I saw last week from the Portland Art Museum. It's called "The Femminiello" by Giuseppe Bonito painted in 1740-60. Here is more information about the painting and cross-dressers of the time who were considered good luck:

This recently discovered painting is a testament to the exceptional social acceptance of cross-dressers known as femminielli in the city of Naples. The term, which might be translated "little female-men," is not derogatory, but rather an expression of endearment. Femminielli come from the Spanish Quarter, the most impoverished neighborhood of the city, as is evidenced by this individual's missing tooth and goitre, a hereditary condition among the poor. Although femminielli crossdress from an early age, they do not try to conceal their birth sex completely. Rather than being stigmatized, they are deemed special and are accepted as almost a third sex. In particular, femminielli are thought to bring good luck, so Neapolitans often take them gambling. This association is represented by the necklace of red coral, which is also thought to bring good fortune. Owing to social prejudice, cross-dressers were rarely depicted until the modern era. In spite of Neapolitan acceptance, this is the only known representation of a femminielli before photographs made at the end of the nineteenth century.
