A label on the outside of a bathroom door can be the beginning of a world-changing narrative.  Inclusivity is a hot topic in the progressive world of 2016 yet we should have evolved much further than what we consider "progressive" by now.

Inspired Adaptation - Making Love from Walls

@ VOL 147 ON MAY 31, 2017

Whatever your position on Donald Trump, it's fair to say that he is a veritable fount of creative inspiration. Back in February, his bluster about building a boundary between Mexico and the US led Diesel Headquarters to launch a campaign called ‘Make love not walls’. Trump’s intolerance was a chance for the brand to mark itself as a supporter of inclusivity in characteristically colourful style. Trump's wall has less meaning in Japan. But the country does have figurative walls of its own, and as Japan is Diesel’s largest market, the company opted to create a fully localized interpretation of the theme. In particular, while Japan is a world leader in terms of fashion and subculture, society as a whole has been slow to open up to the LGBT community. ‘The walls’ urges a removal of the barriers that prevent open expression of love and affection between people of all sexual orientations. Peter Grasse shares.

Focus on Orlando

Via Eddie Selover:"Last night, a special “Powered by PechaKucha” event was help at the Orlando Science Center. Over 400 people came to two sold-out shows to watch seven presenters talk about the wonders of space exploration, the benefits of yoga, about juggling, puns, theme park design, the future of brain research, and the beautiful effects of music on the brain. As always, the crowd was enthusiastic and the laughter and applause for this event went on and on. At the same time, only four miles away, other Orlando people were dancing and celebrating at the city’s Pulse nightclub. This following morning we learned that 50 of them had been senselessly killed, in the worst mass shooting in American history. A lone gunman, motivated solely by hate, was able to spread fear and grief and sadness among thousands of people. We are feeling that grief right now, and struggling to find answers. But we will find them—as we always do—in our connection with each other, in our shared humanity, in the love in our hearts. Love is stronger than hate; love will always win out over hate. We've read comments that Orlando is now “home” to this latest record-breaking atrocity. That’s wrong. Orlando is home to millions of wonderful people, home to a thriving arts community, home to a renaissance of culture and inclusivity. That’s what it was yesterday, and that’s what it will still be tomorrow."
