Argentina JUST PASSED a groundbreaking gender identity bill!!!
From now on, people will be able to change the name and gender on their ID without needing psychiatric permission or any body modifications. Furthermore, anyone who does want hormones or surgery will be able to access them for free through the public and private health system.
It was passed unanimously today by the Senate

“This is an ongoing series of constructed photographs rooted in the forest.

Recently opened, thru June 29:
John Brill, Llyn Foulkes, Pablo Helguera,
David Lynch, Jill Spector & Aleister Crowley
Kent Fine Art, 210 Eleventh Ave., NYC (bt W24th & W25th Streets)

But that’s only one, conspicuous though it is, of its strengths. What really matters is the opportunity to experience a museum-quality exhibition that approaches the pitfalls of latter-day surrealism with as much intelligence and refinement as this one does.“
