#Repost @theaidsmemorial @pokeacupuncture ・・・ 🔻 . “Eugene Arnold Krakower, New York, NY. . When I was about 7 or 8, Uncle Gene took my brother and I to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The streets were packed and freezing, but my Uncle had been a union electrician for the City of New York like his father and knew the construction sites on the parade route. . Uncle Gene hoisted us up on a definitely-not-child-safe scaffolding where we watched Mighty Mouse and Kermit in full vibrancy and spectacle three stories about all the regular people crammed in at street level who didn’t have a magical uncle. . Uncle Gene was a rascal- wickedly funny and full of playful disobedience. He was so different than my parents’ “normal” pale friends with their Camrys and swimming pools and stiff children with whom I was meant to play. . He was equal parts kid and grown-up, and had boats, and explosives, and a menagerie of wild pets including a bobcat who once famously bit my father on the ass. Uncle Gene thought it was hysterical. . Uncle Gene was so fully his own thing and he gave zero fucks, even though he died in 1990, thirty years before basic people would coin the expression. . He made all the other populace of my world feel so flat. Uncle Gene was always vertical, three stories tall, ecstatically alive with color and mischief.” — by @pokeacupuncture . #whatisrememberedlives #theaidsmemorial #aidsmemorial #worldaidsday #worldaidsday2018

So when I met fellow endometriosis haver @lifeabove_endo on the Internet a few years ago, I certainly never imagined we’d be spending Thanksgiving hugging tightly. But after endless back and forth (and 2 hysterectomies later) we are bonded for life. This time last year I was recovering and Jenneh was prepping for major surgery. And so this smiling picture means an extra lot to me because I know where we’ve been, and boy have we earned it. The World Wide Web can be pretty hairy, but its ability to connect us is something to be grateful for, as is this singular woman. Here’s hoping you have surprises to be grateful for. PS turns out infertile ladies can get pregnant... with fucking BREAD BABIES.

Endless admiration!

Today marks 22 years since the world lost artist Greer Lankton. I’m lucky enough to live with and love (and bicker the crazy with) her widower @greer_lankton_archives_museum. At my house we do all we can to support her legacy, and you can too if you go to LACMA and see her work in Outliers and The American Vanguard. Opening today. I love you Greer, thank you for adding sparkle to every aspect of my world and reminding me to lead with vulnerability and fucked up glamour. I’ll try and take care of Paul for you ❇️

What a difference a year makes... First photo was indeed a year ago today, on the first night after my hysterectomy for severe endometriosis. I was smiling but my eyes say it all: full of anxiety and grief that I couldn’t locate through the layers of pain meds and benzos. Severe undiagnosed PTSD, feelings that my worth and purpose were being taken from me, angry and self-pitying with no sense of how I’d emerge. Plus, my hair had fallen out in odd clumps and I’d taken it upon myself to dye what remained electric blue cuz if you’re gonna spiral why not SPIRAL (shout out to @joanaavillez for being a true friend and bringing Manic Panic when I demanded it at night in the hospital, though. I love you Jo.) The second pic was taken tonight, happy joyous and (substance) free. The last year hasn’t been all roses and Kenny G songs, but it’s been proof enough for me in the presence of the divine. The divine- it’s been there in the kindness of my family, friends, chronically ill folks online. It’s also been there in the moments where I cried myself to sleep, shocked by the sounds coming out of me. It’s in the light slanting on my comforter, the resilience of my best friend’s baby clonking her head then giggling, the new hairs sprouting at my temples. Mostly I’ve found it in my own strength, because who the fuck knew. And I don’t mean strength as in powering through. I mean strength as in vulnerability, feeling it all, taking it as it comes and dancing even with a hospital grade pad in my underwear. I surprised myself. I bet you can surprise yourself too.

*THIS IS A PSA ABOUT BEAUTY & JOY* Once a year I go through my clothing so I can donate it or sell it for a good cause (last year was Planned Parenthood. This year will be @seespotrescued.) I am lucky enough to be the recipient of a lot of free stuff, because the horrible irony is the more able you are to afford in this world the more is offered to you. I have had the chance to wear designer “frocks” beyond my wildest dreams and an invitation to show up in some very glamorous places. But as I reflect on what I’ve worn and when I’ve felt the most beautiful, it has absolutely nothing to do with: how lovely my dress is, how thin I am, how obedient my hair is being. It’s completely and totally related to my smile. My joy factor is commensurate to how attractive I feel and how attractive I look has brought me zero joy. When I look at these pictures, I see sequins and satin and fantasy, but I also see moments of true comfort in my skin because I knew I was being of service to the world around me. There are also moments of desolate sadness where I couldn’t crack a smile because I had barely left my bed that day (or had barely left my own spiraling brain. Or barely eaten, which brings on compliments and don’t even get me started on that shit.) Today I wore sweats all around the city and smiled at everyone I knew and didn’t know. It was potent and magical and I’m still figuring out how to readily access that smile, but I know it’s the only beauty tip that has worked #asmileismystyle 😀 #worldkindnessday

This is a post about healing 🙏 Some of us are healing physically. Some of us are healing from loss. Some of us need to heal because we are scared, because people we love and people we identify with and people we could very well be are under attack and it is a fog that doesn’t really lift. Here I am healing my mind & hands & ❤️ by making sculpy beads with some of my very best friends in my pajamas. Yes I used a mold but I am pretty proud of the direction (cc: queen of kook @meganomullally) and it looks like a necklace is in my future and maybe even danglers... Also, plz swipe to see the clay Lisa Rinna that @cawillia made... So, how do you heal?

Yesterday I had a two hour surgery to remove my left ovary, which was encased in scar tissue & fibrosis, attached to my bowel and pressing on nerves that made it kinda hard to walk/pee/vamp. Over the last month it got worse and worse until I was simply a burrito posing as a human. *** My mother took this picture after I spent 9 hours in the post op recovery area with v low blood pressure that the nurses were diligently monitoring. I was so out of it that I thought I looked sensually moody a la Charlotte Rampling (turns out it was more of a constipation vibe.) *** A lot of people commented on my last post about being too sick to finish promoting my show by saying my hysterectomy should have fixed it (I mean *should* is a weird one). That I should get acupuncture and take supplements (I do). That I should see a therapist because it’s clearly psychological (year 25 of therapy, y’all. These are the fruits!) But a big lesson I’ve learned in all of this is that health, like most stuff, isn’t linear- things improve and things falter and you start living off only cranberry juice from a sippy cup/sleeping on a glorified heating pad but you’re also happier than you’ve been in years. I feel blessed creatively and tickled by my new and improved bellybutton and so so so lucky to have health insurance as well as money for care that is off of my plan. But I’m simultaneously shocked by what my body is and isn’t doing for me and red with rage that access to medical care is a privilege and not a right in this country and that women have to work extra hard just to prove what we already know about our own bodies and beg for what we need to be well. It’s humiliating. *** My health not being a given has paid spiritual dividends I could never have predicted and it’s opened me up in wild ways and it’s given me a mission: to advocate for those of us who live at the cross section of physical and physic pain, to remind women that our stories don’t have to look one way, our pain is our gain an

I’ve paid a lot of visits to the ER the last few weeks, trying to handle my symptoms so I would be able to promote this show I love so much, with these people I love so much. But my illness- which has come and gone but never full left- has made working challenging at best and scary at worst. I’m not strong enough right now to explain what’s going on, in part because my doctors are helping me figure that out. I’m so sorry to be missing the Camping premiere and the chance to celebrate with brilliant people. If you want to see a kooky but achy portrait of what chronic illness does to a woman’s brain, Kathryn Mcsorley-Jodell in Camping is just that... I love you, cast and crew of Camping. And I love all of you, making me feel less alone when my body really turns the static up. For more info go to endofound.org or fmaware.org 🙏❤️

It's estimated that of the 1.1 million students enrolled in New York City schools, over 200,000 of them lack the glasses they need to learn. 100% of each purchase will support #PupilsProject to get more glasses to more students.

Today I did something that scared me. Today I did something that hurt. Today I did something that forced me to look at parts of myself that are icky and I don’t like one bit. Today I did something that reminded me of acute moments of pain, but also reminded me of some wild pleasure, but then I felt sad because that pleasure is over, but then I felt happy because it happened at all. Today I celebrated the sacred private part of myself that is always glowing and cannot be extinguished even if the world appears broken in two even or three- or my body feels like it’s built out of feta cheese, or I made a mistake. It’s unexpected and it’s not for any of the reasons I imagined it would be, but today this cunt is happy. Just a touch. That’s all I need. If you feel it, say it- it never hurt anybody. I love you 🌿🍒

This is a post about chronic pain. I have it. I bet a lot of you do too. Some of us talk about it. Others are afraid to, as it could cost them their jobs or their relationships or their sense of control in a chaotic world. In this way it’s very analogous to sexual trauma. There is also (as @ladygaga so wisely shared this week) a proven connection between chronic pain and trauma. Therefore, a lot of people- a lot of women- find their pain is activated by weeks like this one. On the day after Dr. Ford’s testimony I awoke with a start at 3am. It felt like every cell in my neck was singing. My ankles and wrists were weak and my fingers didn’t do their assigned job. Yesterday I felt like I was suspended in gel, and when I meditated a line of pain zipped from my neck to my foot. I’m sorry if I don’t answer your text or email, or if I can’t show up the way someone else would. I appear to be totally able bodied but it’s complex, and I am just trying to do everything required to maintain a life of joy and service. My work costs everything I have. This is fibromyalgia. It’s little understood and so even though I have a lot of knowledge and support it’s hard to shake the feeling I am crazy. But I’m not (at least not this way!) and you’re not. Your pain, whatever shape it takes, is yours and so it is real. I believe you when you say you hurt. I have learned time and time again how important it is to believe.

The last few days have been brutal, as we’ve watched a remarkably brave woman be strong armed by cowardly fools who aren’t fit to shine her shoes. I know it’s triggered pain in all of us, each of a different variety, but there is a common thread: shame. Shame is destructive. Shame kills. I have shame about my assaults. I have deep and impenetrable shame about when I’ve allowed my mind to be colonized and I’ve shamed another woman (may I learn from this shame. May I walk in the light. May I honor her, honor women always.) I have shame about speaking up and shame about staying quiet. For me the antidote to shame is connection. Today my brave best friend spoke about her own assault. She’s the coolest, smartest and funniest woman around. May you all hold each other close and remember you are part of a coven. I love you, I really do. 📷 by @mcleanstephenson

Edith Sitwell says a woman needs a day in bed per week. I’ve made today that day, right at the start of autumn. Every lady should take that time if they’re lucky enough to and if you can’t steal it! Give your soul and body some rest. ♥️ I’m reading, soaking my body in the tub, the energy, the latest books I don’t have nearly enough time to finish...all of that. And while I don’t wake up looking like Emma Thompson here, I sure enjoy a lazy day...

Hi, don’t mind me! Just showering lying down with my Starbucks cup full of La Croix (not sponsored.) In response to the sweatshirt debacle of yesterday, I’ve had some amazing dialogue with other women about representation, reclaiming negativity and size inclusive clothing brands. I follow some incredible fashion bloggers/designers who highlight this (not even tagging the models, actors and “influencers” who inspire me in the confidence dept) and have tagged a bunch of my true faves. But I want to hear from you! Because for my upcoming TV appearances -it’s gonna be a bad fall for those who hate me- I’ll be only repping brands that cater to ALL women. Can you @ me with your favorites and my girl @marissaconqueso and I will get to work sharing our picks? 🌟 I’d rather go naked than promote exclusivity 🌙

I exercised my civic duty and it felt so good! They even gave me a sticker for each nipple. TBQH, I have never loved a candidate like I do @cynthiaenixon and it’s not just because we’ve both had sex on TV. She is truly a modern woman- she says what she wants, loves who she wants and orders the gd bagel she wants. But she also listens. She cares. She sees beyond her living room and wants to educate other people with privilege about the experience of those who don’t benefit from the same resources. She wants New York to fulfill its promise. From one complex lady to another, I agree. Give me back the city I love, where I was born and raised, and show us what leadership looks like, mama. No matter what happens tonight, I know I could not have committed my time and bounty to a more deserving person. The revolution will be televised. PS thank you to Kevin, the NYC cop who took this pic & framed it perfectly.

There is so much at stake right now - if often feels like we as New Yorkers, as women, are under attack. We need a governor who will fight with us - on everything from passing universal healthcare to protecting reproductive rights and women's bodies. Andrew Cuomo hasn't, but @cynthiaenixon will. New York has NEVER had a female governor. New York has NEVER had an openly gay governor. Our politics need to reflect our world + with women speaking up every day about and against mistreatment (often at the most systemic and deeply entrenched levels), fighting tirelessly for a seat at the table, Cynthia Nixon and the incredible success of this campaign so far has proven that women's voices need to be lifted up and represented at every level of government, now more than ever. Tomorrow's election is incalculably important. We are standing at the precipice of a new dawn in progressive politics. For the first time in a very long time, I feel hopeful. I feel empowered. I feel mobilized. I feel proud to vote for Cynthia Nixon as New York State's 57th Governor - and you should too.

For months I’ve been working on a collaboration with my friend Pia’s company LPA through parent company @revolve - sweatshirts that highlight quotes from prominent women who have experienced internet trolling & abuse. This is a cause very close to my heart and the proceeds were meant to benefit charities that help young women by empowering them to express themselves through writing and art. Without consulting me or any of the women involved, @revolve presented the sweatshirts on thin white women, never thinking about the fact that difference and individuality is what gets you punished on the Internet, or that lack of diversity in representation is a huge part of the problem (in fact, the problem itself.) As a result, I cannot support this collaboration or lend my name to it in any way. This isn’t meant to shame Pia or the great work she’s done with LPA. I am deeply disappointed in @revolve’s handling of a sensitive topic and a collaboration rooted in reclaiming the words of internet trolls to celebrate the beauty in diversity and bodies and experiences that aren’t the industry norm. *** I’d like to especially extend my love and support to @palomija, whose quote was the first to be promoted and mangled. She’s a hero of mine. Like me, she gave her quote in good faith and shared her vulnerability in order to support arts education and to spread her message of empowerment, and she wasn’t consulted in the marketing. Not an ounce of negativity should be sent her way. *** My only goal on this planet is to empower women through art and dialogue. I’m grateful to every woman who shared a quote and so disappointed that our words were not honored. As a result, I will be making a donation to the charity of every woman’s choice who was wronged with me and I hope that @revolve will join me with a contribution of their own. *** P.S. This Rubens painting makes me happy because it’s about women joining in love, but he didn’t recognize diversity at all- he just loved curvy butts. Prob

We didn’t take home videos, but @michelauder captured some footage circa 1988, sent to me by @arnoldfriend6 just a few minutes ago. So why am I weeping? Something about having been a child, full of pure awe on a dinky ride and crying “whoaaa” to nobody in particular. Something about the safety of my father’s 80s business-casual armpit. Something about knowing everything I’d do and that would be done to me and that those things really aren’t that different and that my job is to protect this tiny girl and to try and honor the tiny girl inside everyone else. We don’t always get it right. We try again. Whoaaa.

As many of you know, in the last 3 months my heart was stolen by an irascible 13 year old Yorkie named Bowie. After spending a lifetime with my sister @scotlan, her home now contained a baby and another on the way and Bowie’s crotchety old self wouldn’t condone it so she came to live with me, and what started as a tentative guardianship became a full scale obsession. We went to brunch and therapy and the set of a TV show and took at least 5 flights across the US. We laid our heads in a few very chic hotel rooms and walked up and down the river a million miles. She made me feel safe and strong in a sea of change and reminded me that joy needn’t be diminished by a bunch o’ imperfect body parts (she wielded her 3 teeth/3 working legs in style.) My head knew she was 91 in dog years, but my heart felt she was just a sweet baby. On August 13th this sweet baby old mama went to her final home. After a weekend of rapid decline, I knew it was time to let her go so Scotty and I (along with her super model baby Clementine and her wise, cozy husband @mf.goodtimes) came together to bid her farewell. It was peaceful and patient and loving. We laughed and cried like the family that Bowie has made us. Bowie left everyone who saw her, in the street or the airport or the Rite Aid, with a crazy smile. She kept me safe at night, even if it was just from the indistinct shadow of a tank top strewn over a lamp. She made Scotty and my friendship something eternal and deep and boundless. I am so lucky to have been her second mom. I love you Scotty, Clem, JJ and my darling @iolovesyou for capturing it all. Please eat a grilled chicken breast in honor of your second favorite glam rocker today. Meanwhile, I’ll be donating to @seespotrescued in her name, for dogs who don’t have homes and dogs who need new ones.

Today is National Leathercraft Day, National Relaxation Day and National Lemon Merengue Pie Day. It’s also the 9 month anniversary of my hysterectomy. I’ve never celebrated the 9 month anniversary of anything and I realized last night why that number feels so funny- I won’t ever do it the way I planned to. My body is mostly healed and every day I find a new bruise on my heart, but today I offer myself gratitude: from the most pained place, I somehow knew to choose myself. The purest glint of who we are and know we can be is always available to us, calm and true at our center. My friend Paul named my uterus Judy, and when she was being uppity we called her out, hence the tattoo on my ribs, which hurt like fuck even through the pain meds: #RIPJudy. Today I give thanks for Judy, for her graceful exit and for this body, which is stronger than I’ve ever given it credit for. Happy Giving Birth To Myself Day.

This time last year I’d lost hope in my body every being reliable again. A lot has conspired to make this summer very different, and I am truly pulsing with gratitude. But also, if I were on Tinder this would be my pic.

On the left: 138 pounds, complimented all day and propositioned by men and on the cover of a tabloid about diets that work. Also, sick in the tissue and in the head and subsisting only on small amounts of sugar, tons of caffeine and a purse pharmacy. On the right: 162 pounds, happy joyous & free, complimented only by people that matter for reasons that matter, subsisting on a steady flow of fun/healthy snacks and apps and entrees, strong from lifting dogs and spirits. Even this OG body positivity warrior sometimes looks at the left picture longingly, until I remember the impossible pain that brought me there and onto my proverbial knees. As I type I can feel my back fat rolling up under my shoulder blades. I lean in.

The executive order President Trump signed does NOT go nearly far enough. Those children whose pictures we saw, whose cries we heard on recordings that barely scratched the surface, will still be held in prison-like conditions in detention centers. This is not what we do for asylum seekers. This is not America. But it is. For this reason, Voto Latino plans to continue its rally at Tornillo, TX (45 minutes outside of El Paso) on Sunday, June 24th at 9:00am. @jennikonner and I will be at the border with an amazing group of concerned friends, demanding to #endfamilydetention. See you there?

Yesterday I was due at work at 8am. Showed up, watched rehearsal, drank my Starbucks, chill times. But at 8:15 I started to feel sick. Chills, sore throat, rapid descent. So I told Jenni I had to go home. Now. It just felt urgent. I walked in the door and found Gia limp and wheezing. She died in my arms at 9:15 as we rushed to the vet. She called me home. I’m so glad I listened. #giamarieforever

How do I even begin to type these words: this morning we lost the beautiful Gia Marie. It was sudden and beyond anyone’s control and @greer_lankton_archives_museum and I were holding her in our collective arms during her final moments. Gia loved people, playing with colorful tulle and above all she loved her sister Irma. She was my love, my dearest companion, and her kisses and hugs made every morning a celebration. Our hearts are broken, but we will never forget the nine months she graced this pained planet with her radiance. #giamarieforever

Happy National Best Friends Day from @jennikonner who loves me despite appearances. Today of all days, this week of all weeks, treat the people you love most with warmth and open your expansive heart to them even when they’re tough. Jenni has seen me through some hellacious moments and made me believe I was still worth loving. She’s made room for me to be broken and scared. She doesn’t expect perfection. We could all use one of these and I hope you’ve found yours. If not, keep looking- she’s out there.

All youth deserve a chance to thrive. They deserve to feel safe, protected, valued and heard. It’s not enough to #WearOrange anymore, we have to speak truth to power. There should be no National Gun Violence Awareness day. It’s morbid. The kids we’ve lost this year and every year, at school, at home, walking in the rain eating candy, targeted for their race, targeted for the audacity of freedom—the magnitude of these senseless and barbaric acts grow daily. We have to work harder to get legislators to take action. The future depends on it. #Everytown 🧡

A man doesn't have time in his life to have time for everything. He doesn't have seasons enough to have a season for every purpose. Ecclesiastes Was wrong about that. A man needs to love and to hate at the same moment, to laugh and cry with the same eyes, with the same hands to throw stones and to gather them, to make love in war and war in love. And to hate and forgive and remember and forget, to arrange and confuse, to eat and to digest what history takes years and years to do. —Yehuda Amichai #jewishwisdom #sweatsuitwisdom #sweatsuitladyLAbaby

But Joe Mantello and this cast brought it to new heights and Andrew, sweet hilarious wise Andrew. You were so good that I even believed your name was “Larry.” Lucky to have shared a buncha screen time and even some screen kisses with such a genius. Get your tickets!!!

This is a love note to @taylorswift 🌹 I was a fan before I was a friend and her music formed the soundtrack to so much love & loss & discovery- late nights writing and early mornings weepy on the way to work. She had perfectly distilled the feeling of growing into yourself. When we became friends 6 years ago I didn’t know she’d also prove to be the loyal and hilarious cat lady who loved me through every rough moment and the triumphant ones too. She never lets me feel alone or less than, she’s a fierce girl gang leader and a total mensch. Tonight I was just a fan again, one of 60k who got our souls rocked by her artistry, her open heart and her killer gams. Love you forever, Tay.

Happy Birthday to me! I’m not gonna lie- 31 was kind of a bitch to the birthday bitch. It’s no secret I experienced some big losses, some deep pain, had moments of true unwieldiness. I try to use those experiences as a way to connect to people who need to be reminded that their humanity is not a character defect but an essential strength. I often need to be reminded of that, especially in an industry where everyone seems to be able to pop out 5 perfect kids while never gaining weight and walking easily in stilettos. I am not and can never be that lady. Distance brings clarity though and I’m so excited for 32 to shine a light on the years that came before it and illuminate how I can make them matter. I’m so grateful to the people who loved me through this year, the ones who reminded me that I was valuable to them in any form. I love the folks who follow this account madly and truly- you’ve offered me grace. To a year of health and peace for YOU. Always your girl, LD P.S. Sorry mom! It’s all about ME!

The first thing people ask when I say my mother is a photographer is “wow, you must have so many amazing pictures of you!” While there are a couple of great childhood snaps, they are often by an aunt or my father—really anyone BUT my mom. Her work has focused primarily on dolls and objects. But when she started to take these portraits of people (all in body paint) I actually suggested to her that I’d be the perfect subject. At first she was unmoved but after months of nagging relented and she even let me choose my own inspiration photo (Audrey Hepburn, obvs, cuz curvy girls can do Audrey too.) The entire outfit here- and I mean everything- is body paint and the lens is so specifically my mothers. I learned more about her when she took a picture of me than I have in 25 years of therapy. Her show of new work- up now at Salon 94 in New York City- is stunning and emotional and unusual. And I feel so lucky to have been graced by her lens. You’re forever my creative inspiration, mama @lauriesimmons 📷 - here is Some New: Lena (pink) 2018
