The uncensored version of this stayed up for more than 24 hours before Instagram took it down for violating "community standards."

If you are in or near London, my friend @timothylongfashioncurator is looking for volunteers to archive this amazing doll collection at the Museum of London. Timothy gave me a private tour of the museum's fashion archives when I was there last month. It is spectacular. .
.
Repost from @timothylongfashioncurator - An exciting project is about to begin @museumoflondon, with our remarkable doll collection. We are seeking volunteers to assist us with cataloguing and rehousing dolls, dating from c1700-c1980. In addition to the actual doll, this project includes many more dolls' clothes and accessories. Some items are mass-manufactured, others are careful constructions made (and loved) by Londoners. For more information, visit the Museum of London website and look for 'Fashion Collection Volunteer'. Applications due 11 August. #volunteer #volunteering #museum #fashion #fashionhistory #doll #dollstagram #dollfashion #dollmaker #dollhouse #dollsofinstagram #dolls #toy #toys #socialhistory #18thcentury #19thcentury #craft #handsewn

On August 1st I arrive in Provincetown, MA for a three month stay to work on my Artists of Provincetown portrait project. This week I found a very rare copy of Norma Holt's 1980 book Face of the Artist. The book is a catalog from the exhibition of the same name sponsored by the Provincetown Art Association and Museum. It's a wonderful work that I will use as my guide moving forward. If you see yourself in this book or see someone you know, I want to hear from you! ron@ronamato.com

chaste:

adjective
not having any sexual nature or intention.
synonyms: nonsexual, platonic, innocent
.
Some in TRUMPLAND expect us to be chaste, to betray who we are by nature. This is a violation of our basic human rights. Let's make sure they here us loud and clear. .

Continuing to share some clips from The Box book signing at The Strand in May. Here @hohanian and I discuss empowering people through my work specifically and our actions more generally. Link to the full clip in my bio.
The Box book is selling fast. You can find in through most online booksellers.

There are those in TRUMPLAND who would like us to just go away or hide who we are. Now is the time to make our presence known. We must fight for ALL our rights as humans, as citizens, as husbands, wives, parents and lovers. We're here, we're queer, now more than ever. .
