Nov. 3, 2016: Halloween Hippies

November 3, 2016

Mara and I went to a Halloween party last Saturday. We didn’t have much time to put costumes together, so we went as hippies, because we had most of the clothes we needed, like some tie-dye stuff; just had to buy a few accessories. Plus, the costumes required comfortable shoes and not a lot of make-up. Sweet. Here we are with one of the other guests. Groovy, huh?

But going as hippies was also actually apropos. We’re coming up on the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love next year. And with major world events like terrorism and a brutally contentious and incredibly bizarre presidential election, all I can say is we could use a little peace. (A lot, actually.)

On another note, Mara and I are traveling to Ireland next week. Should be pretty interesting. Despite the fact that Catholicism is the dominant religion there, it’s one of the most progressive in terms of LGBT rights: It was the first country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage (in 2015), and transgender rights are recognized on a national level. So, although we might raise a few eyebrows, we can travel openly as a trans couple.
