Why
NBC Just Made a Casting Choice Hollywood Must Pay Attention To
NBC Just Made a Casting Choice Hollywood Must Pay Attention To

NBC just cast newcomer Alanna Saunders as Tiger Lily for its live-action production of Peter Pan. In doing so, it did what the Hollywood version wouldn’t: star an actress of Native American descent to play a Native American character.

Was that so hard?

‘FUN HOME’ CREATOR ALISON BECHDEL RECEIVES MACARTHUR GENIUS GRANT
By Chris Sims
Cartoonist Alison Bechdel is virtually a household name at this point. Her comics, including Fun Home and Dykes To Watch Out For, are deservedly critically acclaimed, and ‘The Bechdel Test’ has become an increasingly relevant shorthand for analysis of gender diversity in fiction. In other words, she’s a genius, and today, that became official.
Bechdel is one of the latest recipients of The MacArthur Foundation‘s “Genius Grant,” which honors “talented individuals who have shown extraordinary originality and dedication in their creative pursuits and a marked capacity for self-direction,” and comes with an award of $625,000 that can be spent any way the recipient sees fit.

Request: Help me attend the International Day of Peace at the United Nations!

perixlustos:

(So I’m copying the following from Facebook, i.e. if you are friends with me on there you may have already seen it. But I really need to get the word out through all available channels!)

Good morning everyone! I’m taking a break from my physiology homework to put forth an appeal to family, friends, and strangers alike.

As part of their annual International Day of Peace observance, the United Nations has invited 500 youth delegates from around the world to participate in their ceremonies, representing the variety of cultures who share in this global event, as well as the humanitarian efforts being performed by young people around the world. On behalf of the Patrick McCollum Foundation, I have been asked to attend as one of these delegates. It is an incredible honor and privilege to receive this invitation, and I expect the experience to be unimaginably exciting and ultimately life-changing.

To this end, I am currently attempting to raise the funds I need to travel to New York on the 18th of September and stay there through the 21st. In addition to the events at the United Nations on the 19th, I have the opportunity to attend a number of associated events and possibly meet some very extraordinary people in the days following.

I have set up a donation page at http://www.gofundme.com/cnppak
My request is not that you necessarily contribute yourself, but that you share this link with whomever you can.

I am immensely grateful for the support, and I will continue to update my donation page with any information or publicity as my departure draws closer.
