Shiloh Selene-Goldlust has a new Flickr challenge for virtual world photographers to illustrate resistance to the misogyny and bigotry unleashed and encouraged by the Trump era.
"A lot of people are scared right now," she tells me, "and I just wanted to encourage a way to express our feelings in a creative way." She created one of her own, inspired by a horrific personal memory which was dredged up shortly after Trump's election:
"My particular photos were inspired by something that happened to me when I was in college." (You can read about it here.) "The recent information that I've read on the President's pick for Secretary of Education says that she won't commit to supporting the guidance that President Obama instituted regarding sexual assaults on campus."
Other creators in the challenge are inspired by their own perspectives: "We're on the brink of a turning point in the United States," writes Tristyn Sutcliffe for her photo above. "Our differences should not be a dividing factor in a country that is a melting pot of cultures and diversity. They should be unifying and celebrated. It's time to fight hatred with love, it's time to win."
It's also time to think about submitting your own image.
