you never know when the desire to draw Luna Lovegood is gonna hit you… but it’s useless to fight it.

When an undercover officer saw Monica Jones, a black transgender woman, walking down the street just a few blocks from her house, in an area that the officer described as being “known for prostitution,” that was enough to convince him that she intended to engage in prostitution. It was on that basis that he approached and stopped her.
In April of this year, Monica was convicted of violating this overbroad and vague law. Today she appeals that conviction, and the ACLU, along with other advocacy and civil rights organizations, filed a brief in support of her appeal.
We #StandWithMonica because transgender women of color should be able to walk down the street in their neighborhoods without being arrested, or worse, for simply being themselves.

On this day he was expecting to photograph children laboring in a nearby brick factory, but the gathering of schoolchildren caught his eye so he went to investigate. “The teacher said the girls are seated at the front to encourage them to answer questions and be more involved, as otherwise they are quite shy.”
