Le photographe Leland Bobbé et ses clichés des dragqueens de New York, à moitié maquillées
New York-based photographer Leland Bobbé has captured portraits if drag queens in half drag for his ongoing project 'Half-Drag . . . A Different Kind of Beauty"
Leland Bobbe’s most recent project “Half Drag,” the New York native captures the two identities of the big city’s drag queens. Bobbe captures the images in-camera with the queens sporting their alter egos in full hair (and even fuller makeup) on the left side while sporting an au naturel look all on the right.

"Charlotte Cushman was America's greatest 19th century tragic and dramatic actress during the eras of Edwin Forrest and Edwin Booth. She performed in England many times, and she had fond friendships with a number of women, one of the few semi-openly lesbian performers of her time. A rare original photograph circa 1870."

"Vivian Maier, whose 1950s street photography is finally receiving the credit it is due. She was a Socialist, a Feminist, a movie critic, and a tell-it-like-it-is type of person....She wore a men's jacket, men's shoes and a large hat most of the time." Gloria Brame

Richard Avedon - Truman Capote (writer). This image was taken on a large format camera with a white background which allows us to see a lot of the person, including their clothing, and focus on them without distraction. The body language of the person is almost arrogant, as he looks very confident and is looking down at the camera.
Walter Naegle, Bayard Rustin’s partner until death, wrote, “A master strategist and tireless activist, Bayard Rustin is best remembered as the organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, one of the largest nonviolent protests ever held in the U.S. He brought Gandhi’s protest techniques to the American civil rights movement and helped mold Martin Luther King, Jr. into an international symbol of peace and nonviolence. Despite these achievements, Rustin was silenced, threatened, arrested, beaten,...

Truth Quote: "To be afraid is to behave as if the truth were not true. " Bayard Rustin:
Ntr AmlonRa: Black History Month 101: Bayard Rustin, A Forgotten Civil Rights Leader One of the most influential moments in Black history is most certainly Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech at the March on Washington in 1963, but few Americans know that the March on Washington was organized by Bayard Rustin.
The forgotten civil rights activist and driving force behind the 1963 March on Washington will receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom. "Bayard was a political genius who, because of his sexual orientation, was forced to stay in the background of his greatest triumph," said Wade Henderson, president of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. "It is an extraordinary moment to see him recognized during this year of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington." #BlackHistory

G.W. Carver was evidently uninterested in the role his image played in the racial politics of the time. His great desire in later life was simply to serve humanity; and his work, which began for the sake of the poorest of the black sharecroppers, paved the way for a better life for the entire South.
