These are just some of the many ways members of the LGBT community identify themselves in a beautiful photo series from San Francisco-based photographer Sarah Deragon.
Deragon’s “The Identity Project” has taken her around the country as she “seeks to explore the labels we choose to identify with when defining our gender and sexuality.” Her portraits show the amazing diversity and vibance of a queer community that for too long has been defined by outsiders.
Stone Titan at The Whitney House (Hartford CT), 4/21/13
The David Whitney House located at 4421 Woodward Avenue in Detroit.
Whitney’s considerable wealth came from the lumber industry and he used his fortune to construct this expansive stone mansion. The home featured the first personal use elevator in the city of Detroit and in today’s economy would cost over $10 million dollars. Detroiters today know the building simply as The Whitney, one of midtown’s favorite restaurants.
