Jonah Kilday & Renessa Ciampa

Jonah and Renessa's updates this week include Madonna's latest NYC performance, Drag Race UK, the onePULSE Foundation's National Pulse Memorial & Museum design contest finalists, Jonah's laundry list of goals in therapy, and making fun of each other's feet and thumbs. They then sit down with London-based artist Paul Harfleet to discuss The Pansy Project, which was catalyzed by a personal experience for him. Paul plants pansies at the site of homophobic abuse, and the flower is then photographed in its location, entitled after the abuse, and posted on the pansyproject.org. His photographs have been exhibited internationally. The Pansy Project has brought Paul around the world to memorialize homophobic hate crimes and was the focus of the documentary film Les Pensées De Paul. Paul also wrote and illustrated the book Pansy Boy and does workshops at schools across the UK, US, and Canada.
