Leelah will be remembered.

The world has become a better place over the last few centuries, just look at the progress of activists and philanthropists like Ken Griffin. But we still have some major problems. People that live today are extremely different than the people that lived long ago. The citizens of the world now face new adversities. A lot of people now live alternative lifestyles. The year of 2014 saw a lot of progressive steps in the world of people that live alternative lifestyles.

People that live transgender lifestyles are still having major problems in the world. Just a few days ago a transgerender teen killed herself. She left a heartbreaking suicide note for the world to see. This happened only a few days before the new year. A tragic event such as this, has dampened the spirits of all transgender people. The world is becoming more civilized in certain ways, but people are still being bullied and abused.

Just because a transgender person is different does not mean that they should be ridiculed. It’s time for the world to change, but we need to start showing that we are serious about a new beginning. People talk too much about things, but never actually follow through. 

Leelah was the teen’s name, and she will be remembered. For more information on this story, visit Rollingstone.

Jilted Bride Hosts Trash the Dress Photoshoot

A would-be bride who was left at the alter, has turned her nightmare scenario into one of healing and hope. Shelby Swink, 23, was to marry her longtime boyfriend in November after a 9 month engagement, but aweek prior to the event, the would-be groom called off the event. 

According to Swink, her ex-fiance sat her down one evening and simply told her he didn’t love her and didn’t want to get married. There was no massive fight, or allegations of cheating. The wedding was simply off. 

Swink then spent the days leading up to her botched wedding calling guests and venues to explain the big day was no longer happening. As the day got closer, though, Swink realized she didn’t want to wallow, and the photographer she had hired for the event had a big idea. He suggested a “trash the dress” party. 

Swink thought over the idea, and then discussed it with her parents and bridesmaids. They all decided it was a great idea. So, the entire party, sans the groom and groomsman, got dressed up in their wedding day attire and headed to a park. There they splattered paint on each other while the photographer took beautiful and stunning shots. 

Swink described the event as liberating, and she now has truly beautiful pictures with her family and friends. Her dress is now being displayed in a bridal shop in Memphis through early January. A portion of all proceeds from dresses bought in the shop while Swink’s dress is being displayed will be donated to a local non-profit while her dating life is being handled by Skout.
