Chicago, San Francisco und West Hollywood hatten sie bereits: Die Regenbogen-Zebrastreifen! Warum Atlanta sie immer noch nicht hatte, konnte Robert nicht wirklich verstehen und entschloss sich etwas dagegen zu tun, schließlich hat Atlanta eine große LGBTI-Gemeinde. Nach knapp einem Jahr harter Arbeit und endloser bürokratischer Meetings ist es Robert und seinen vielen Unterstützern aus dem ganzen Land gelungen, sein Projekt umzusetzen und Atlanta bunter und offener zu gestalten.
Ab September hat er beim US-Sender Logo die Lizenz als Herzensbrecher. Moderiert wird die Show von Lance Bass, bekannt durch die Band N’Sync
AMAZING: I am overwhelmed with emotions. Today is the culmination of over a years worth of hard work fighting for @atlrc The Atlanta Rainbow Crosswalks to be installed and it’s been worth every second! I started to tear-up as I dipped the paint brush into the bucket and took the first stroke. I realize that I am only a vessel that has brought light to this cause and understand that thousands of people before me have fought and continue to fight for LGBT rights in the City of Atlanta and throughout the world. I have been humbled by this experience and the warmth and gratitude I have received are so very appreciated! This is a project for everyone to enjoy! A project of love, inclusion, acceptance, unity, tolerance and joy, all the good things about life! There will always be people who hate, or don’t understand, but just wish them well, and be above it, let’s all be above hate! Happy Pride everyone!!!!!! #atlrc #prideatl #pride11alive #rainbowcrosswalks #rainbowcrosswalk #midtownatl
I would like to say a tremendous thank you to all the supporters of @atlrc Atlanta Rainbow Crosswalks project. From the countless people who who funded the project to those like City Councilmen Alex Wan and Kwanza Hall who have helped this along. As many of you know, these are not just any crosswalks. The intersection of 10th St. and Piedmont Ave. has been the epicenter of the LGBT community in Atlanta for decades. These crosswalks and sidewalks represent those from every walk of life coming together to share Atlanta as equals. They serve as a tribute to thousands of people who have and continue to fight for LGBT rights in our city and worldwide. And, this is not just paint. These stripes we have laid down represent every shade of the human spirit. Not just representing the LGBT community but to our allies and beyond. While we are celebrating a major win today, let us not lose sight of the importance of permanence. This project should not be regarded as a temporary win or just another decoration for pride. It should be viewed as a permanent reminder of the LGBT community here in Atlanta and the values of acceptance and tolerance. So please join us as we urge Atlanta’s Mayor Kasim Reed to allow the Atlanta Rainbow Crosswalks to become a permanent installation in Midtown, Atlanta. We’ve started a petition up with over 700 signatures already. So please sign and share. As the LGBT community we must continue to persist, to be seen, and to be permanent. Because we aren?t going anywhere. (Petition link in profile) #RainbowCrosswalks #ATLRC #Pride #PrideAtl #rainbow #midtownatl #atlanta #rainbowcrosswalk #rsjdesign

I just want to thank everyone for following and supporting me and thank you for making it possible to reach the 40,000k mark!. It’s an honor to share my life with you guys. Also, the best way to ask questions is to DM me, I can’t always see all the questions and comments on the photos and remember to tweet me and follow my snapchat story all @ RSJdesign – Next stop Paris! ????.
As I float here enjoying the warm sunshine and salty crisp breeze I reflect at how fortune my life and circumstance has been thus far, but I also for the first time understand how far some countries still have to go in regards to human rights. Lebanon has many beautiful natural wonders and history that spans the ages, but in regards to its present and future people I only hope things get better and it’s people have the freedom that many other countries have and take for granted. Let us remain consciously aware at how fortunate some of us have it. perspective. #SendingLove #LoveWins
getting lost in the labyrinth that is mykonos. sunday.
carved into the cliffs along many points on the island of santorini are steps leading to the aegean sea. as i walked down i couldn’t help but think about how such beauty was created by one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history and with its explosive power fractured a formally single island into the archipelago it is today, which may have led to the collapse of the minoan civilization. behind me you can see the left over volcano and water filled caldera. another popular theory holds that the thera eruption is the source of the legend of atlantis. monday. ??.
that’s a wrap santorini and the greek isles. you’ll be missed. ??????.
