World’s Oldest Living Person Credits Health to Sushi and Sleep
Born on March 5, 1898, to kimono-makers in Osaka, Japan, 116-year-old Misao Okawa thanks a good night’s sleep and lots of sushi for her health, she told The Telegraph. “Eat and sleep and you will live a long time,” she told the newspaper. “You have to learn to relax.”
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.
