Media’s Grim Addiction to Perseverance Porn | FAIR

LABSN Editor’s Note: I thought this take on how a news item is reported was very important. FAIR has a reputation for making news reporters think about what they write from a different point of view.

These stories are typically shared for the purposes of poor-shaming, typically under the guise of inspirational life advice. A healthy press would take these anecdotes of “can do” spirit and ask bigger questions, like why are these people forced into such absurd hardship?

LANSN Editor’s Note: This looks like a fun event for all involved. What a great way to introduce the public to the beauty of the nude body.

IMG_0928While most days you’d get arrested if you walked fully nude down the sidewalk at 47th Street and Second Avenue in New York City — topless is fine, for all genders; bottomless is not, for any — there is an exception.

Bodypainting Day.

Once a year, for the past three, Andy Golub has organized a mass bodypainting festival, gathering a hundred models of all sizes, shapes, ages, races, and genders to pose fully nude in the street and act as human canvases for dozens of talented artists flown in from all over the country and all over the world.
