There is an exhibit at the Met I've been wanting to see: "Extreme Beauty: The Body Transformed."

Ten Thousand Proud Elephants - Ten Thousand Proud Elephants I wore a dress to the gay pride parade this year. It’s a grand parade, fun filled with hundreds of stories like this, and how people go there looking for voice and they scream so loud for it that they come home voiceless.

Furthermore, are some people taking that constitutional right too far....   [tags: Sociology] 851 words
