2015 Gay Pride Parade | NYC

This first picture for me summarizes this whole struggle. Kids show us their true feelings with pure innocence and honesty. If all parents and in other words - society as a whole -  accept and show support and love, we probably would be in a much better place today.

Acceptance doesn't take much, but fighting, degrading and hating consumes much more energy and spreads more negativity into this world. Refusing the other simply becuase they are different only breaks our most valued trait as humans - LOVE! The ability to love and think is what makes us unique on this planet - if we can think then we should be able to understand our differences and embrace rather than hate without any justification! 

The 2015 Gay Pride happens to be in a historical year that started a new chapter in the fight for acceptance and tolerance in this country. Still a lot needs to be done within people's minds and hearts. But setting laws that promotes and protects equality is certainly the right way of heading towards that path!

Love Wins

Coney Island | Mermaid Parade

The Mermaid Parade is usually held on the first Saturday that marks the beginning of the summer season. This year's Saturday was nothing like how summers is like, yet New Yorkers didn't care and hundreds or maybe thousands of people were in Coney Island for the Mermaid Parade. 

This was my first year to see the event... at some point it felt like a summer version of Halloween :D

Beirut Revisited

Beirut Revisited

Sometimes I miss it, sometimes I feel its good that I am not there anymore... but I always know it is that very special place that made me who I am today!

These are old pictures I took during a workshop in Ain el Mriesseh area... a loooot changed since then. I should go back and take photos now and see how all these spaces were transformed since 2008.
