Yohji Yamamoto Men’s Spring Summer 2012

My favorite Menswear designer for years and years. He continues to amaze me. I was only every able to buy one  of his ties but one day, probably when I will look ridiculous wearing it, I will buy a complete outfit.

A special feature – Anya in the Spotlight – that aired on ieTV Channel 1 in Trinidad on October 30, 2011.

Straight But Not Narrow.

This anti bullying and homophobia campaign flew completely under my radar. A very interesting approach to educating people (and especially young people ) about acceptance.  There are a few videos but I will include only two as examples . Sad that many of the videos have not been viewed that many times.

Straight But Not Narrow (WeAreSBNN) is a campaign working to positively impact the way teens view and treat their LGBT peers. WeAreSBNN is managed by Cause Creative Marketing (Straight But Not Narrow (WeAreSBNN) is a campaign working to positively impact the way teens view and treat their LGBT peers.

It’s illegal to be me.

South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) airs a Special Assignment documentary on the plight of LGBT refugees in that country.  A must watch!

Some shots ( most duplicates of my previous post) from last night’s Project Runway Party at the delightful Carlton Savannah. It was such a great time and a lovely bunch of people. Glad Anya won so I didn’t have to throw myself off the rooftop in true drama queen fashion.

Here is her family reacting right after. Amazingly even her family did not know the result ahead of time.

And this was Anya speaking via Skype from NYC just before the win.
